GE Lighting 89888 Energy Smart LED 11-watt (60-watt equivalent) 800-Lumen A19 Light Bulb with Medium Base, 1-Pack

My family has been making a determined effort to switch to more energy efficient devices:

Better windows.
Better air conditioner.
Better lighting.

We’ve been switching everything to compact florescent, but decided to give this LED bulb a shot. Overall, the light output is the same, and it isn’t even as warm at the compact florescent it replaced. However, there is one down fall: there is a shadow cast by the bottom of the bulb. This shows up as a weird dark area in our light fixture.

If you are using it as a replacement in a can or directed light fixture, you probably won’t even notice. But if you are mounting it horizontally, be prepared for that dark spot.

Overall: 3 stars. Puts out the light, but differently from other bulbs.

The future of lighting is here. Unlike standard incandescents, GE energy smart LED general purpose bulbs last up to 15,000 hours–more than a decade at 3 hours per day use and equal to 15 incandescents. They also use 75% less energy, making them a brilliant idea for your budget. And, GE energy smart LED bulbs provide soft white light instantly while fitting in many of the same fixtures as standard incandescent bulbs. Make the change to GE energy smart LED general purpose bulbs today.
