I looked a number of LED bulbs and I am glad I picked this one. The light is very nice and even. I really like how it's the normal shaped light bulb so that my lamp shade stays on. It turns on right away unlike the CFL that it replaced. While prices still are high on LED bulbs this was around the middle of price range at my local home center. The packaging said it was made in America which I think is great. I plan to buy more when they go on sale.
