It is well made with a substantial and smoothly finned heat-sink on the rear surface of the bulb. This bulb is best fitted with a good air circulation around it because LEDs do not have a long life if allowed to get too hot. It is very close to the same outline size and shape as a classic old fashioned 60 Watt light bulb.
The colour is a nice 3000K warm white, ideal for a bedroom or living room, and it also matched the old 60 Watt bulb reasonably well for colour and brightness when I compared them. This is especially significant now that apparently exposure to a bluer light (ie daylight colour) for a few hours before bedtime might delay our desire to sleep. Unlike the 60W Tungsten filament bulb which goes down through orange to dim red to black, the LED does not change colour as it dims.
This LED is intended for Trailing Edge dimming, and when the pair are dimmed with the Varilight in Trailing Edge mode there is no flicker except for a faint bit at the very dimmest setting - a starving dimmer. A single bulb (only 8W) does not go quite as dark with this dimmer if it had been set for two (16W), but again that is the dimmer needing some current to work (specification says it needs at least a 10W load).
Can be expensive, but still recommended if you shop around.

I always buy the lowest temp for warmth which seems to be around the 3000-3200K mark.
They have gone a step further with this lamp as it is the warmest I have seen, it also gives a very high quality deep sheen to the room which I havn't seen before. Its a lovely look.
I bought this for my kids bedroom which has a dimmer fitted, the dimming is very smooth and works down to a very low level and looks great dimmed too.
It does cost a little more but you can see its a quality product, I will definitely be buying more of these for my other rooms and I think it will look amazing in desk lamps too.
Someone has finally nailed LED lighting technology, this is the best you can get.

Stopped working after 1 year. These are expensive LED bulb that should last +10,000's hours. This was used in a bedroom so would only have done a couple of hundred hours max. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Tony

Excellent product, I have 4 of these bulbs & they made an equal replacement for the 4 60w bulbs I was using before. They dim OK.Published 19 months ago by Dave Mountjoy
Working well, had to replace the older dimmer switch we used with a more modern trailing edge dimmer. Nice warm colour and used in kids bedroom. Very happy.Published 19 months ago by Mr. Derek Stark
At first it looked fantastic, lovely warm bright light, but it simply isn't up to handling dimmable switches (the reason I bought this one in particular) and died within a month. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Grant
