We've bought several PAR38 CFL lights to replace incandescent floodlights in our ceiling. So we were eager to replace some more using these LED floodlights. But when we tried them they were too big to fit in the socket. When we rechecked the box to see if it said PAR38 LARGE or anything similar we saw no indication of any difference from normal floodlights. So if you buy, do make sure that the face diameter is small enough to fit the socket you want to used.
