While not a bad bulb, Sylvania's LED lacks value compared to competitors that perform better and cost less.
With a respectable but overstated quality of light, this bulb doesn't shine bright enough to impress. At $10 per bulb (more, once you factor in shipping), it's a poor value compared to what you'll find in the lighting aisle.
All in all, Osram's 40W replacement is a simple bulb that offers very solid value in its class.
With poor performance, a highly impractical design and less value than the competition, this LED isn't one we'd recommend.
For basic household usage, the Cloud LED is a solid value pick that gets the important stuff right.
The Philips Clear LED is designed with traditional aesthetics in mind.
These bright, efficient bulbs are a fine choice if you like the look -- but seek something else if you use dimmer switches.
There are worthy competitors that cost less, but with strong light quality and dimming performance, the Hyperikon LED still merits a look.
Haiku's high-fashion smart lights are priced like a luxury, but they look and act the part.
At about $10 each, these bulbs are a great way to create an old-school, semi-industrial aesthetic -- especially if you use dimmer switches.
If you're looking for value in the lighting aisle, look no further -- this LED leads the pack.
This is a decent enough light, but its value lags behind the competition. Don't buy in unless Cree catches up.
At $10 for a three-pack, the Bright Stik LED is a compelling value pick in the lighting aisle.
Unless you use dimmer switches in your home, it's hard to go wrong with this light -- and the price is just right.
With tried and true hardware inside the bulb and smooth performance on multiple platforms, this $15 smart bulb is a smart bet for connected lighting.
You might not have an obvious need for an Internet-connected, color-changing light bulb, but the Philips Hue Connected Bulb kit offers enough potential to justify its high price tag.
The White Ambiance LEDs fill in a gap in the Philips Hue family of smart bulbs, but they didn't outperform color-tunable LEDs from Lifx and Stack. They're really only worth it if you're already committed to Hue, or to HomeKit.
There's nothing wrong with this LED, but it's priced above competitors that outperform it, which makes it difficult to recommend.
