Osram 60W Replacement Ultra LED

The Good Osram's 60W Replacement LED offers plenty of brightness, strong dimming performance and a very efficient design

The Bad Osram's color rendering score is a little low, and it doesn't offer as quite as good a warranty as you'll get from some of its competitors.

The Bottom Line At $10, this impressive LED is a very safe bet in the lighting aisle.

Hard to go wrong with Osram's 60W Replacement LED

With LED prices continuing to fall, we're seeing more and more bulbs selling for $10 or less. One of the latest options is the Osram 60W Replacement Ultra LED, which rings in just a few cents shy of that 10-buck benchmark.

Thankfully, this lower price plateau doesn't represent a dip in quality, at least not with Osram. With well over 800 lumens of light output from a power draw of just 8.5 watts, it's one of the most efficient 60W replacement LEDs we've tested, and it performed well during our dimming tests, too. That makes it an easy bulb to recommend, even among an increasingly crowded field of worthwhile competitors.

Design

Osram's 60W Replacement Ultra LED doesn't sport an inventive build like the Philips SlimStyle or the Cree 4Flow LED , and it doesn't show off its heat sinks the way the original Cree 60W Replacement LED does. At first glance, it's just a fairly typical-looking light bulb, which might be a good thing if you're a fan of inconspicuous design.
