I replaced a kitchen full of 6 recessed BR30s with Feit's 750 lumen Dimmable BR30 "Performance LED" bulbs. Each bulb ended up being *brighter* than the incandescent bulbs they replaced (regardless of the supposed "800 lumen" rating that the incandescent bulbs are supposed to have). The collection of all 6 ended up being so bright, I had to buy a new LED-compatible dimmer for the room. No buzzing that I can hear.

I also replaced an old halogen PAR38 outside with their cool white outdoor-rated dimmable 1200 lumen bulb. That thing is so bright it looks like there's a helicopter shining a search light on my place.

(Neither were bought at Costco, BTW. I bought them at Menard's when they had a sale on the bulbs.)

OP you need to put YMMV or Seattle ONLY or something like that in the title otherwise you are going to get a slew of thumbs down for "unable to replicate deal"

These Feit LED bulbs are pretty terrible, I bought six of the 65w BR30's at $10/ea and the light quality is quite bad. Some of them make a buzzing sound when dimmed that can be fairly annoying. I have serious doubts they'll last longer than a year or two. Compared to the Philips LED bulbs we bought (that were twice as expensive) these are worse in every way. Anyway at $5/ea it's a good deal even if the product is subpar. Repped.
I tested 6 brands of bulbs for several weeks including the Feit Omni. Light color was exactly the same as most of them I tested and matches Philips hemispheres (excellent and cheap at Home Depot). Light distribution is good as well as was overall brightness. No buzzing or humming whatsoever unless used in an incompatible dimmer switch. Overall, I rate it the best in terms of price and performance of all the bulbs I tried.

FEIT products are a waste of money. You'll end up paying more in the long run because they have such a short lifespan.

Wish we had a Menard's near here. The outdoor ones are what I'm seeking, but they are like $30-45 each. For that money, I can buy a totally new LED outdoor light fixture at Costco (~$65).

FEIT CFL's SUCK. As many people have stated. Super short lifespan. I don't know how their LED products hold up though. I am currently on my first FEIT BR40. We'll see how long it lasts. Bought from Costco.

when i replace incans i normally use a more powerful equivalent. so ill replace a 60w with a 75w or 100w equivalent. it solves the "i like lots of light" problem and still slashes energy bills.
I do the same, and go a bit overboard sometimes. nod

The lamps in my home office went from three 100w incandescents to three 350w CFLs laugh out loud Terrific in the perpetual gloom of sunless winter.

I was wondering what that glow on the western horizon was.... laugh out loud

I suppose it now doubles as a tanning bed...

Which uses less electricity to provide an equal amount of light, LED or CFL? I don't plan to dim any lights, and have been using CFLs. I saw the LEDs at Costco for $4.98, so would it be worth to switch out the CFLs for LEDs?

If you want really good LED bulbs try G7 Power 900 lumen 9.5 watt bulbs for about $16 shipped via Amazon or their own website. I have about 30 of them around the house and in the garage and love them. I also have few Philips 800 lumen 60 watt equivalent bulbs. Philips are more omnidirectional, but have warmer light at 2700 kelvin, I like 3000 kelvin of G7 bulbs better as it is less yellowish.

Now if you want really expensive LED bulbs than you can choose switch lighting liquid cooled bulbs for a lot more: http://switchlightingco.com/

If you start looking at the lumens/watt figures, it appears these days that there is a range for each depending on brand/model, but the distribution overlaps now where they're fairly comparable in efficiency (though not in price).

However, the two are very different in how they distribute those lumens, based on both the bulb and the fixture geometry. The LED is inherently directional, with extra design effort to make it more omni, one could say the opposite for CFL.

I'd say if your current CFL's are in recessed lighting or spot lighting, you might try some LED in reflector designs for more light or efficiency...
