What customers are saying.

"This is what I've been looking for. Ever since the incandescent ban, I've been hoarding the rest of my bulbs, looking for an alternative with the same quality of light. Tried a few other LEDs with no success. Then I found Cree. I literally cannot tell the difference between a Cree bulb and an incandescent. This is amazing to me. I am so so happy to have found the perfect alternative to keep my living room feeling like the cozy sanctuary it always has been. Thank you, Cree, for working to give us the best quality light!"Emily K


"Cree has exemplary customer service and an actual warranty that they uphold. It’s not often that a company stands 100% behind its word and its products. I only have good things to say about Cree, their customer support associates and their products."Steve O.


"If you want to very best light bulbs you just found them in the CREE BR30 5000K bulbs. We had several regular flood exterior lights outside and switched to the ones above in hopes of better lighting. We were and still are blown away with the incredible bright white light these bulbs give at night when they go on. We can’t wait to update all our bulbs in the house with the CREE bulbs."Slim


"Excellent product! High quality and well made. The best at natural color rendering. Makes my hardwood floors look great. I replaced all my old halogens with these. My kitchen has wonderful bright light at a fraction of the monthly cost."OLDDOGMEDIC


"These are excellent bulbs for outdoor lights. I have had people stop by my house and ask what type of bulb they are. They can’t believe how bright they are. They are also very reliable and reasonably priced. I am slowly replacing all my bulbs with this brand."Pat A.


"The new CREE light bulbs are taking over my house. It is the closest to an incandescent bulb I've ever seen, in fact I can't tell the difference except for the electric bill. In CA the electric is as expensive as the water, thank you CREE for making such a wonderful bulb for us."Clay M.

"If an 80% reduction of energy used for lighting interests you, ask me about Cree LED. You will absolutely-see the difference on your electric bill."Peter S.

"These bulbs look so cool! Cannot get over the fact they r cool to the touch! Would love to change all my bulbs out to these !!!"Shelly D.

"The efficiency and savings of your bulbs are scary. Amazing stuff. So far we've replaced the 'busiest' part of our home with your light bulbs; this month the kitchen and dining room have gone all-LED. We did the main hallway in January. When you look at the savings in wattage alone, it's almost unreal. And the quality of the light and its consistency are absolutely superior to fluorescent bulbs, which were novel in their time."Daniel K.

"My wife and I decided to slowly change over the incandescent bulbs in our house to LED to reduce our electric bill. When we found out that CREE Bulbs are made in the USA these became the only bulbs we will buy. We believe in keeping the USA working and we appreciate that you make the bulbs in the USA. Way to go!!!!! Not to mention that the bulbs are of outstanding quality and the light output is great."Edward O.

"After buying special dimmers and dimmable CFLs in an attempt to be energy efficient, we found the CFLs didn't dim well and flickered. We resorted to 60W incandescent, and THEN tried the Cree LED. We were happy with the soft white color, good dim-ability, true light bulb shape, and of course the energy efficiency. Too bad we invested in special dimmers, as they aren't needed. All our room lighting is now Cree 60 W equivalent LEDs. Product Assembled in USA, also a plus!"Jim N.

"In my laundry room / garage entryway I have a lighting fixture tied to a motion sensor. Since there are no windows in there, my intent was always to have the lights come on when we come home or while we are doing laundry without having to think about switching them on. This is a high traffic area when laundry is being done. Anyway, I have NEVER been able to get CFL's or LED bulbs (Even dimmable ones) to work correctly with this motion sensor.. they've always flickered when supposedly "off" if this sensor was active. Well, enter CREE Lighting Led lights... two 60W Cree Lighting LED bulbs work PERFECTLY in this fixture with the sensor working as intended!! WELL DONE CREE Lighting !!!"Donald T.

"Put another brand LED bulb in an outdoor motion detector light fixture in below zero weather. After a few moments it started to flicker. Put a Cree Lighting bulb in fixture instead, works perfectly even at 30 below temps. 40 watt CREE Lighting replacements are as bright as a 60 watt incandescent or 60 watt florescent equivalent bulb."Brian O.

"I am really impressed with the color purity and brightness of the high CRI bulbs. I checked out other manufacturers, and they cannot even come close to matching the value."Kent R.
