Similar packaging

The packaging for the soft white and daylight versions of the bulb are easy to mix up -- the same goes for the dimmable and non-dimmable versions. Make sure to double-check that you're buying the right one before making a purchase.

Dimmability

The bulbs are dimmable, but they don't dim down much lower than 20 percent. They also flicker at low settings on certain types of dimmer switches.
