LED bulbs are the wave of the future. (until something better comes along) My biggest complaint about LED bulbs has been price. In fact, that has been my only complaint about LED bulbs. The astounding lifetime of an LED bulb can be illustrated by the average use in a child's bedroom, install a LED bulb when the child is born and with 3 hours of use, each and every day, that same bulb will still be burning when said child is finishing up their junior year in college. This makes the LED bulb ideal for those hard to reach places. Tottering on a ladder once instead of tottering a couple of times a year with an incandescent bulb or every year and a half or so with CFL bulbs vs. over twenty years with and LED bulb is sort of a no brainer.
Verbatim addresses my only complaint with this 60 watt incandescent replacement which draws 10 watts and is a clear white light that to my unassisted eye seems a smidge brighter than the equivalent CFL bulb. As mentioned above the cost of twenty plus dollars for an LED bulb has been my only criticism. This bulb is less than $11.00. It is not dimmable but most of my applications for a 60 watt equivalent bulb are not dimmable anyway.
Verbatim provided me with a handy dandy spreadsheet that allowed me to calculate savings on replacing bulbs with their bulb. Amazon won't include a link in their reviews. I have included a link to the saving calculator here. I liked this bulb.
