120 Hz flicker...
Pros: -Superb price. -Lights up instantly. -Nicely built. Cons: -120 Hz flicker. IMPORTANT TO NOTE. The Great Value 60 watt equivalent led bulbs DO NOT exhibit this behavior, so they're fine. It appears to just be with the 40 watt equivalent ones. For the most part, this 40 watt equivalent led bulb is great, but there is a huge flaw with them. This bulb exhibits 120Hz flicker. Some might not even notice this, but there are also some that are highly sensitive to this type of flicker. Personally, it drives me crazy and even sometimes gives me a slight headache. It's especially noticeable if you're moving around. (Try waiving your arm quickly under the light. You'll see that it isn't a smooth blur and that there are distinct images.) I'll keep the 60 watt equivalent ones, but this 40 watt equivalent one has got to go.

Pleasantly surprised

I originally purchased 60W GV LED soft white light bulbs to replace 60W incandescent bulbs in my ceiling fan, but the light was just too bright for a bedroom (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Great-Value-GVRLAO1027D-Great-Value-LED-10W-Soft-White-A19-Dimmable-Light-Bulb/38591217). So I purchased these 40W bulbs and they perfectly replicate the output of light produced by the three 60W incandescent ceiling fan bulbs! A more natural and much less harsh lighting than CFL bulbs (that I had to replace every 6 to 8 weeks). I'm so glad GV offers this more affordable LED bulb option. I purchased ONE bulb at a big name hardware store for over $15! Now I feel like I'm helping my wallet as well as the environment!

Great 40W Bulbs (UNLIKE the 60W Vers)

In a nutshell: a GREAT 40W bulb. If you don't need dimming, this is the one to get (Great Value 40W 2700k). Only uses 5W, and gives a lot of light from those 5W! And UNLIKE the newer 60W versions (60W 2700k Non-Dim) -- which have a small but constant BUZZ that I can't stand -- the 40W version is totally silent. If you want a good DIMMABLE 40W version, the dimmable version of this bulb is only so-so. A much better choice would be the Feit 7.3W 40W equivalent (goggle it -- get the 7.3W one). They're a bit more but absolutely worth it (never seen a better evenly-dimming bulb with a CRI of 92 and great dimming). But if you don't need dimming and just want a good, solid 40W bulb, this Great Value 40W bulb is the one to get. And unlike the 60W version of the bulb (which buzzes) the 40W version is totally silent. I have about a dozen of them, and they all work great. Hope this helps.

Great 40W replacement

I was shocked how well these looked when I turned them on. The color temperature and light output were almost identical to an incandescent. I will be buying more of these to replace other bulbs very soon.

1. Soft white is less bright than day light.

2. Soft white is a yellowish color and the day light is white. The daylight bulb will be brighter than the soft light of the same wattage.

3. Daylight style LED's are likely to be at the most - blinding to the eye when directly viewed and at the least - distractive when viewed peripherally. Soft styles are coated to diffuse the light and solve both of the above problems. If you need more light from the soft style then select the next higher lumens (wattage output). This will have very little economical effect.

1. Thank you for your inquiry. Because each locality has different codes/ordinances on electric; you would want to contact your local building inspector for this answer. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact our Private Brands team at 877-505-2267.
