LEDs will not, of course, work as photographic lighting where precise color balance is required because of the discontinuous spectrum that is characteristic of all quantum devices (just the laws of physics). These Philips units dim down to a relatively low level for LEDs but not, of course, anywhere near the dimness levels that are possible with tungsten lamps. The color temperature does not shift towards the red as the units are dimmed, as they would do if they were tungsten. These limitations are characteristic of all LED lamps and are unavoidable.
Phillips has perfected the packaging of this unit in a way that does away with the finned (ribbed) chassis that every other manufacturer seems to need. If this design is less capable of dissipating heat, because of the lack of fins, and the LED emitters run hotter than other brands, this will reduce the life of the units compared to other manufacturers' products.
I have accumulated 2,640 hours on one of these lamps -- mounted in a ceiling can-type fixture -- and it is still running at the same brightness level as when it was new, as actually measured with a cine style photometer. It also dims just as well as when it was new.
They are very good color for LEDs and the dimming quality is good. They are not quite as warm as incandescent bulbs, but at 2700K it is better than the bulbs that list 3000K and say "warm". Most listed as 3000K are "cool" white in my opinion.
These lights are also a bit brighter than the traditional bulbs I replaced and will not dim as low (nor dim as low as other brands of LED I have tried). Consider how often you have your lights on the LOWEST dimmer setting and if the answer is not often, then these will be fine. If you don't dim your lights to less than 25% often ... you will have no problems.
They are not nearly as heavy as some of the brands and make me think they are less likely to warp or damage the inside of the cans over 10+ year life.
Lastly, these have the traditional long neck of the flood lights. Some available, particularly the Lightkiwi brand, are the short neck version and not suitable for most recessed lighting I have encountered.
They put out more light at full tilt than the incandescents, the soft white color does not hort the eyes, they dim down to barely lit and still make a nice soft white light. I have had other led bulbs that had issues with dimmers, these have ran perfect.
They are a bit pricey if you think short term but they will outlast the incandescents by magnitudes, your electrical system will see a lot less stress and in case of a power outage, my battery bank can run these in the whole house for a week.
