17 W LED is a great replacement for 75W bulbs!
We have used CFL lights but they have been disappointing in brightness, light quality and reliability.
These 17 watt LED's are great. The light is similar to incandescent. They turn on instantly and provide a nice steady light. I plan to use these in an overhead light fixture to increase light without exceeding the wattage capacity of the fixture.
The appearance is not an issue when placed in a lamp or other light fixture.

The best standard bulb incandescent repacement available
The bad reviews here- two about the color and one about the design- are way off the mark. The color is closest to incandescent tungsten, the standard light bulb for the last 100 years. It was carefully engineered to be that color. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I find these far more attractive than the CFL-type bulb replacements, and far more interesting to look at than a standard light bulb. There's not a lot of applications where you would want to look at a bare bulb anyway, but with these, I would want to.
CFL bulbs not only have jarring peaks in the color spectrum, and flash 60 time per second. Many people, inluding me, find these elements unpleasant.
Also, whiter light available for the last few years in the CFL form, is jarringly cold to most people. Thes bulbs are meant as replacements for standard 'white' light bulbs which are quite yellow. These have a slightly cooler cast, but Philips doesn't publish (here, for the consumer, anyway) the actual color temperature or spectral analysis graph; both would be helpful.
5500 degree kelvin color temperature is available in LED, but it's not as efficient as the intense blue the LEDs used here have, which the engineers used to great effect in combination with the flourescent yellow in the plastic shell covers to produce a warm white. It would be great to be able to dial in the color temperature depending on the time of day and application, but we aren't there yet.

Color too warm
The bulb is too yellow, i.e. like an incandescent. I prefer daylight color, approximately 5500K, so I hope you'll produce a series of daylight bulbs. The web page should include how much light is produced and the color of the light.

when you look at your home page it is nice but you DO NOT put what your lights are equal to

I wish this was a decent replacement for the 75w incandescent bulb. But it's not, mainly due to the industrial looking crazy design. This bulb is ugly. Incandescent bulbs are so simple and elegant, but this Philips bulb is a small train wreck of a design. Only in a completely closed lamp does it look good (where all you see is the light).

World's Greatest Lightbulb
I've been using this lightbulb in a normally HOT environment (inside an enclosed fixture, outside, hot ambient# for six months now without a problem. It is super bright--and far better than any of the incandescents that I keep having to replace! I have five fixtures and a lightbulb typically lasts 3-4 months. I've put 40W bulbs in there and they still fail. THis one just keeps on ticking. A tour de force in lightbulbs!
One more note--there is a review #score =2) on here where the reviewer says the lightbulb emits a disappointing yellow color. Obviously this person has never seen one of these bulbs--they EMIT a bright WHITE light. 2700K. As white as you want it to be!

Finally ... a winning LED bulb!
This bulb is in a different category from all the other LED's bulbs I've tried. The color is so close to incandescent that you can't tell the difference. The distribution of the light also closely mimics an ordinary bulb (not a spot or odd light distribution like other LED bulbs). This is truly a step forward and something you can actually replace your bulbs for the long term with. Nice work!
