Cree Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Cree, Inc. is an American manufacturer and marketer of lighting-class LEDs, lighting products, and products for power and radio frequency (RF) applications. Most of its products are based on silicon carbide (SiC), a mineral compound which early Cree researchers successfully synthesized in a laboratory.
An article from Consumer Reports by Kimberly Janeway comments on the unreliability of Cree's LED's:
Cree LED fails early in Consumer Reports' tests, energy-saving lightbulb falls far short of longevity claims
The great thing about energy-saving LED lightbulbs is that they’re designed to last a long time—often 23 years. And that’s why when some Cree LED spotlights died early in one of Consumer Reports’ tests—the most failures our lightbulb experts have seen for LEDs—it raised questions.
Our engineers conduct a number of different tests for brightness, energy use, light color, and more. Cycle testing tells us how the bulbs hold up after being frequently turned on and off. That on/off affects CFLs, but hadn’t affected LEDs, until now. Four of the eight Cree LEDs died after about a third of the way through the test.
And in our 3,000 hours life test, two of the 10 LEDs died, something that is unusual for LEDs but we have seen this in the past. One Cree LED went out before 500 hours and the other around 1,700 hours. This LED is meant to last 25,000 hours, or nearly 23 years when used 3 hours a day.
