Bought this back in december for $14.... two bulbs have already burnt out. Do not recommend Sylvania. Suggest Philips.

Philips is usually too expensive. Any suggestion where/when we can grab Philips LEB bulb at cheaper price?

Any deals for 100w? I find 60w too dim for outdoor nightlight.

Were they stamped Sylvania? Some of the reviews said they received some bulbs that weren't labeled sylvania and those failed. Most of the reviews seem really good

Also got in on that deal but mine are going strong, no burn outs.

Not sure if current deal is bad or if $14 was a super hot price

Given how long LEDs are supposed to last, and how bad most of the cheaper ones are, I don't think it's a good idea to shop on price. Better to stick to stuff that's 90+ CRI and dimmable, so your friends and family don't wrongly conclude that they hate LED bulbs.

Is that the flicker you see in the phone camera? I thought all leds do that?

I bought some cheap ones from shopper+ and 15 have burnt out in under a year. Phillips is solid. I have had luck with Feit brand bulbs but YMMV.

GE bulbs also have burnt out but I'm sure those are just rebranded cheapos.

But I have also had Ikea bulb (cheap non dimmable) last 3+ years with no burn outs.

Great value bulbs have overheated and the socket broke off (100w equivalent).

Typically yes you can see them in the phone camera. You can also see it if you wave your hand in the air in the light from a flickering bulb (it will look like pictures of your hand frozen in place instead of one continuous blur).

And no: LEDs don’t naturally flicker, 60hz is just the cheap way to do it because it means you can basically power them straight from the 60hz AC power. Better LEDs will convert the AC to DC and power the LED from that, creating 0 flicker.
If they are dimmable bulbs they may use flickering in the form of PWM even if they convert to DC, and if they are better PWM bulbs they will flicker at much higher rates. The APA102 (RGB LED) flickers at 19khz, for example. I also have DIY accent lighting that flickers at 20khz, and even at the dimmest setting I can’t see any flicker at all.

so i had philips 60w first a bit yellow colour, then the hyperikon from amazon (now no longer selling this), daylight white 100w equivalent. then got a few philips dimable ones, now got these amazon LE brand like 4 bucks each 100w equivalent. so far the LE is the brightest. don't know how long it will last. the philips non dimable 60w ones started flashing time to time, definitely not to the rated hours at all. hyperikon is pretty bad too not as bright as the LE, some failed but mostly decently working still.

haven't tried the amazonbasics ones yet, probably same quality like the LE one. 60w ones are quite dim if you are only running one bulb. my home each light have 3 bulbs, i mix the 60w with 100w and i am pretty happy with the brightness and colour.
