I got a package of these for the bedroom, and at first they were great. But within 30 days they started flicking. By 45 days it was so bad I swapped them back for my old bulbs.

I don’t really have a use for bulbs that flicker, so they will probably remain in my closet until I throw them out.

I bought 2 packs of these a couple of months ago and they are all working great for me. I use two of the bulbs in external lighting outside that automatically turn on at sunset and off at sunrise - no problems so far. If they do go bad I'll just return them to Costco.

My only complaint is that they take a few extra seconds to respond if sending a request through Alexa, but the Smart Life app itself works great to control these things.

I bought 2 sets back in August and have 4 in my daughters room and 2 out front. No issues. My daughter has fun settings the different colors and we can theme the outside lights to the season - right now orange for Halloween.

Works great with Google Home.

I wish they made these in other bulb types. I’d buy more and swap them out all around the house.

I have exact same experience. I'm going to return them though.

Are they very dim in colour modes? Some reviewers are saying that.

I bought 3 packs and returned all of them in a few months. So many of the lights lost the ability to display the rgb colors and only the white spectrum were displaying

I've also had good experience with the bulbs. The non-white colors aren't bright even at max brightness which is the big negative.

No issues with flickering but 1/3 of mine a few weeks ago stopped turning blue anymore. Can cycle through all the colors, just won't do blue anymore and appears off until I switch to another color.

Weird

Same issue here with one bulb. Have experiencing flickering as well, and I find the colours to be very dim. Good price compared to other smart bulbs, but pretty much a waste of money otherwise.

They are dim in color mode. I am not sure how they compare with philips though (maybe dim is the norm in color mode for now).

Not weird. They use 3 colour LEDs, red/green/blue to make white. That's why they can't do individual colours as bright as white, and why one primary colour like blue can fail independently.

I have a couple of the white Globe bulbs, using them with Smart Life. They've been fine.

yes they r very dim in color mode. white is OK, but not as bright as the philips CFL that it replaced.

If you have issues with flickering is your bulb on a dimmer switch or normal switch?

Why don't you return them at costco if they aren't working? It's like you are throwing out $30 in the garbage...
