Top critical review
Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2021
The build materials look fine and the packaging is great. But the epoxy these bulbs use to cement the glass to the metal base is very weak. Even though the epoxy was spread properly around the entire base, it sheared off by wiping with a microfiber cloth to remove finger prints after installation (and I was gentle screwing the bulb in because I have read similar reviews). Because of the designs of the bulb and lamp, I had to finish breaking the connections to get the base plate back out of the fixture when all it needed was a decent glue. Light output is less than a typical 60W bulb and closer to 40W (I tested with a dimmable switch), but it really is a handsome bulb.
