Don't have any experience with this particular pack of 12 bulbs, but 3 years ago I bought a 10-pack of 5000K (daylight) A19 Luminus 9W 750 lumens bulbs, and they're great. I have 8 of the 10 in use, with 2 of them outside. None of them have burnt out yet (fingers crossed).

Where do you guys use these?
I used these on ceiling light and it is too dark since these led point the light towards the top of the bulb which means on both side of the ceiling but not downwards. I ended up getting the ceiling led strip light that was on sale last month. It was like 10 times brighter than ceiling light with these led bulbs.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

I concur, although my experience was more than 50% flickered - for me it was about 3/4 of the pack flickered when I tried them in several different lights. I ended up returning the pack I bought and getting dimmable LEDs. I used them in non-dimmable lights but no flickering. There used to be a review on Costco.ca for this pack of lights and they were reviewed quite poorly due to the flickering so it seems to be an general issue.

Probably never. The program was canned by Ford.

For what it's worth I only use Philips or GE brand (although GE just sold off their naming rights for bulbs) because cheaper lights with high frequency flickering gave me terrible headaches and eye strain.

You can't see it with your bare eyes but you usually can if you have a strong or headphone cord or similar in a flickering bulb's light. And obviously your brain can tell the difference. Not worth saving $5 to feel like shit forever.

Luminus has not been a reliable brand for me in my experience.

I've had a few bulbs burn out after 2-3 years of light usage, when they are rated for 8-10 years of regular usage.

I got the ones in the black packaging though, this looks like an even cheaper version of those ones.

3000k is a good middle ground. Slightly yellow. I prefer 3000k over 2700 or 5000.
