          I use these bulbs in my garage because the extra brightness is appreciated there but the daylight color temperature is too harsh to use in the house where a warmer color temperature is better. Long life for LED bulbs is expected these days and I cannot comment on the durability of a bulb with a life expectancy of 22 years other than to say I did not experience any premature failures.

          The ability to select the color temperature makes this fixture unique. I have installed mine in the ceiling can above my shower and set the color to 4000k. I find this near daylight setting excellent for my enclosed bathroom. The unit is easy to install and fits my ceiling cans perfectly. Like most LED lights you have to take their longevity claims on faith.

          They look and feel like very expensive sheets. The fit is perfect for our queen size guest beds. They have only been washed once since we got them and they feel even softer after being washed. I am looking for a set for my split king size bed. The color is white without being too bright white. I expect these to last us for a long time. Based on my three months of ownership.

          Falling somewhere between a blanket and a comforter, our TCS Classic European Down Blanket is the best of both worlds, providing a layer of cozy, lightweight warmth that has perfect year-round. Generously sized and covered in our new silky-soft, down proof, 300-thread count combed cotton sateen shell that creates a lightweight shell with exceptional softness and drape. It is filled with hypoallergenic, 500-550 fill power certified European down that goes through a rigorous 6-step quality process which ensures our down is hypoallergenic-exceeding government regulations for cleanliness. Expertly stitched in a double-diamond pattern ensures the fill stays in place. Most down proof sateen blankets are dry clean only, but we worked closely with one of the finest fabric mills available to develop a cotton sateen that has down both proof and machine washable. Exclusively by The Company Store. Color: White.

          Just the right amount of fill and warmth for cool nights where I live in Florida. It is not as heavy as those I have used when I lived in climates where it snowed. But those quilted blankets are too heavy for the milder nights now that I live in Florida. It might also be good for fall and springtime in more northern climates. The stitching looks perfect and overall feels like a more expensive blanket than it really costs.

          The more you dim, the warmer the light with the Philips household A21 light bulb with Warm Glow dimmable light effect. This new Philips LED A21 offers a new experience for dimmable LEDs by creating a soft, diffused light and smooth dimming from 2700K to 2200K. As the light is dimmed, the color temperature of the bulb is reduced and creates a warm, relaxing ambience. Until now, this warm, dimming effect was only available in dimmable halogen and incandescent lamps. Now, here's the perfect alternative for these household applications where ambience is as important as lowering energy bills and reducing the hassle of frequently replacing light bulbs. This fully dimmable light bulb is ideal for residential use in kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms, offices, bedrooms, dens and for commercial use in restaurants and hospitality applications. It is perfect for table lamps or anywhere traditional light bulbs are used, providing a soft white light for a pleasing and comfortable ambience.

          I like to read with nothing less than a 100 watt equivalent bulb. 60 watt and 75 watt bulbs are not bright enough for me. Soft white is also more pleasing to my eyes than daylight color which are too cold and harsh to read by. This bulb is physically larger than typical 60 watt bulbs so if you are going to use it in a table lamp make sure the shade will fit over it.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Very Bright

          ECOSMART 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          The EcoSmart PAR30 9.5-Watt LED Light Bulb can be used to replace any PAR 30 or 75-Watt bulb with a standard E26 base. This Daylight LED bulb uses only 9.5-Watt of power while emitting 680 lumens of clear, clean, bright light. It is estimated that this bulb saves an estimated $180 in energy costs over the course of its life. On average the bulb lasts 22 years (or 25,000 hours of use). This light can be dimmed for convenient light customization, which further helps conserve energy over the life of the bulb.

          Is it a 75 watt bulb equivalency or is it a 70 watt bulb equivalency ?
