Thank you for your interest in EcoSmart LED lamps. Yes this product is dimmable. Because of the nature of the product you need to be aware of what type of dimmer to use (not all dimmers marked for LED will work) and how many lamp can be dimmed by one wall box dimmer.
For this product you can put seven(7) lamps on one 600W dimmer.
Here are some of the dimmers that are compatable with this lamp:
Lutron: S-600PR, DV-600PR, TG-600PR, AY600P, GL600, DV-603PG, S-600, S-600P, LG-600P, D-600PH, TB-603PG
Ace: 34050, 3027596

I have some that are dimmable. I believe they are found in a green package. You can ask an expert @ Home Depot about this. This is how I found out about them.

This LED light is brighter than the equivalent CFL or incandescent, although the spectrum is also more white. I have installed them in several fixtures and all have worked perfectly. Obviously I have not had enough hours to check the long term life.

This is supposed to be the equivalent of a 40W bulb, but I would say it might be closer to a 65W.. it is definitely brighter than the 65W reflector/flood bulbs I was using.

Thank you for your interest in EcoSmart lighting. This light bulb is a 40 watt equivilant to a standard incandescent light bulb. The lumens (visible light output) are the same as an incandescent light bulb. These lamps have a 3000K color temperature which is considered a warm white color but LEDs tend to be considered to have a brighter look to them. There are more compoents in LED light bulbs so this accounts for the price.

Thank you for your interest in EcoSmart LED lamps. This lamp has a CRI of 3000K, this lamp color is closest to incandescent / halogen lamps which measure about 3200K.
Higher CRI lamps (4000K, 5000K) produce a whiter, cooler color, whle lower CRI lamps (2700K or lower) produce a more yellow, warmer color.

Color & Mood
ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs are available in a wide variety of shades of white light, ranging from yellowish to white to bluish white light, which allows you to customize the mood of your space. Many ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs come in "warm" colors to match the yellowish light of incandescent bulbs, but you can also choose "cooler" colors with whiter or bluer light.

Choosing the right color:
Light color is measured on a temperature scale referred to as Kelvin (K).
Lower Kelvin numbers mean the light appears more yellow; higher Kelvin numbers mean the light is whiter or bluer.
Most ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs are made to match the color of incandescent bulbs at 2700-3000K.

Careful not to confuse CRI (typically between 70 and 100) with the CCT or correlated color temperature (typically between 2400 K and 6500 K). Anyway, I answered my own question from the LightingScience website: the CRI of this lamp is 85.

Good question: I would check the product information from Home Depot and the manufacturers web site. I do not recall that information but there is usually that information available through digging. I have had 12 of these bulbs for over 2 years and have not had a problem yet. I'm a Home Depot customer who has purchased the product before and was willing to answer questions. Sorry for not having your exact answer.

The best answer is to the store where you bought it. The other more reliable answer, is to use the internet to chase down the manufacturer, e.g. General Electric. This is written on the bulb, with the model number. Submit your issue to them, and wait for their reply. Almost in every case, they will send you a voucher to buy a replacement. They might want the bad one back, possibly with the reciept as well.

ALWAYS Keep your receipts.

Hi James: We do not offer a warmer lamp color in the EcoSmart series. You can get a price and special order a lamp at the Home Depot PRO Desk that will meet your needs though.
The lamp would be a Lighting Science DFN 19 W27 120. It will be nearly the same form as the EcoSmart #864680 and will have nearly the same performance. The housing color will be silver instead of white. I have attached a copy of the spec sheet for your review.

This bulb has the warm look of an incandescent bulb, unlike some LEDs which have the bright blue-ish color. I'm not sure that answers your question but I hope it helps!

The label says "assembled in Mexico" so who knows where the individual components come from - some may even come from the USA?
