Philips DecoLED Energy saving bent tip decorative candle 046677415013 3.5W B11 Candelabra Base, Dimmable
Great light and color
I got this lamp to put in a reading light in my sons bedroom. We had an incandescent bulb and it was to hot to adjust the light, so we tried a CFL and the color temp was too high and it took a few minutes to warm up. So we tried this lamp and it is perfect! It doesn't get hot, is has a much softer/warmer color temperature than the CFL, and it provides more than enough light for reading. I was worried it would provide less light than the incandescent, but it doesn't. Great lamp!

Is exactly what I was looking for
I am an avid Sylvania user person but this new Philips LED light design is what I have been looking for. I have not seen any other manufacturer come up with an LED lamp that looks like a normal lamp and lights in a normal color temp. 2700K is what looks good in a home. I am glad I found this lamp. Unfortunately they only had one left at Home Depot and I can't find them elsewhere in a good price range.

Just bought one of these. BAD TEMPERATURE COLOR
Like already mentioned in another review, THE LIGHT COLOR IS ALL WRONG! The color is a magenta hue. It especially looks terrible if there are any incandescent or other LED bulbs in the house. The entire rest of the lighting industry uses 3000 K for their LED light color. But the Philips is at a VERY odd looking 2700 K.
The other bad thing about this bulb is the black-dot on the diffuser crystal inside the glass. The little diffuser crystal is poorly designed. I have several other LED candle bulbs with much better diffuser crystals inside that not only look better but also work better.
It's a shame the color is so bad because the bulb design and build quality are top notch. Best built and designed candle LED of all the bulbs I've recently bought.

The light is pink...
I was excited to try these, but after installing it, it was slightly too dim and definitely too pink. I can't wait for another generation of this bulb which improves the color temperature!

Life of bulb for several decades
Overall the bulb was a perfect fit for our foyer light fixture. Contributes to the overall beautification of our home. Great attribute is that will not have to change bulbs for decades. The only draw back is that a some dimmable levels the bulbs flicker. Once you adjust them to a proper non-flickering position these bulbs performance is excellent. They are rated to compare to your 25 watt incandescents output illumination & cost a fraction of your old light bulbs.

color is all wrong
compared side-by-side to an incandescent bulb, this one has a very noticeable pink color to the light.

Absolutely amazing color and style
I am very pleased with the candelabra bulb design and the beautiful 2700K natural light output. I have a brass chandelier with eight transparent green glass chimneys. When I plugged one of the Philips DecoLED candelabra bulbs into one chimney, I was amazed by the brilliance of the 150 lumens of natural light and the beauty of the glass chimney with the DecoLED as compared to the other seven chimneys containing 2700K CFLs. I will now replace the other seven bulbs with Philips DecoLED lights as soon as I receive them.

Outstanding lumens at reasonable price
Replaced 5 25W (125W total)incandescent lights in our chandelier, which is on a dimmer, with the Philips DecoLED 3.5W (17.5W total). Lumens output is similar to incandescents. Color is very similar to incandescents with no problem dimming.
Only concern is slight variations in color between bulbs. Very minor but can be seen.
