Rated 4 out of 5 by sourdoughjosh Wonderful Incandescent Replacement Bulb
These bulbs are the perfect replacement for locations where you either see the bulb and/or need truly omnidirectional light.
Unlike other "omnidirectional" LEDs that still have a heat-sink base emitting no light, these really do glow just like a frosted incandescent.
Indeed, the only gripe I have is the lack of dimming (otherwise these would be in every fixture of my home).

Rated 4 out of 5 by ritebulb Bright, but not a true "warm white"
A single number for color temperature doesn't represent the spectral signature in enough detail. This bulb is a harsher white than the normal warm white incandescents, halogens and CFLs I've looked at it next to. That said, I'm not the stickler for the "warm white" norm that my wife is. So it's serving well as a porch light, where a CFL is slow to light in cold weather. But she doesn't want it indoors, even prefers the CFLs to it.
That said, it's very bright, omnidirectional, and the form factor while a bit larger in scale than a normal bulb of similar lumens, appears normal - certainly better than a CFL or most other LEDs in that regard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MedicGreenCat No Heat
I have Solar Urticaria and have reactions from flouresant lights and even incadesant bulbs so I was looking for an LED bulb that put off a warm light that had the look of a regular bulb. These fit the bill!! They are wonderful!! put off no heat and have a lovely warm light! These bulbs are just a little larger than a regular bulb have not tried in a enclosed overhead light fixture as of yet to see if they will fit. They are a little on the pricey side but if they do last 23 years they will be more than worth it.

A little longer than standard A19 incandescent, but still a good product. Evenly dispursed light distribution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuckl Great Overall Luminosity
I have been searching for an LED lighting product with characteristics that mimic a standard A-19, incandescent lamp, since the lamp is visible in the luminaire. This product fits the bill. Good overall luminosity (not directional like most LED lamps) good color temperature (color rendition, to the eye, was indistinguishable from incandescent), little heat, no IR/UV (lamp is being used in an outdoor fixture and not attracting insects).
If it's lifetime is as projected, this is a Win-Win deal all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jd63 works good
Lights in all directions, almost as good as incandescent. Maybe VERY slightly less brightness than incandescent, depending on the lumen rating of the bulb it replaces.
