Why buy the Cree CR6-625L? The answer comes down to just one word, efficiency. Every 65 watt bulb replaced with one of these LED modules saves over 80% on energy costs, runs cool to eliminate additional HVAC usage, and eliminates bulb changes over the 50,000 life of the bulb. Realistic payback times run as low as two years when the ENERGY STAR qualified CR6 LED downlight is installed in areas with high light usage, and hundreds of dollars in additional energy savings can be realized over the life of the light. All this is accomplished with no sacrifice in light quality or dimmability, especially when compared to compact fluorescent bulbs. The outstanding quality of Cree LED downlights and a 5 year warranty make the decision to switch your home to LED lighting an easy one.

Customer Reviews

Love this light Review by Dawn
Just purchased 9 of these Led bulbs 3 weeks ago for a home remodel project. I love them. The color of the light is perfect, it dims wonderfully and it looks very stylish. Even my electrician fell in love with them. Polar-ray had the best price I found anywhere, it was shipped the same day and the customer service (I had a question or two before I purchased) was very helpful. I will be ordering these lights again to finish the rest of the rooms in my house. Thank you very much Polar-ray (Posted on 5/2/2013)
cree cr6-625L Review by rebecca lucas
So far so good. Very easy install for 6" retrofit from incandescent lamps 65W. These are very close in color to 65W but are supposed to last much longer which is good because these are the trims and all in one. Bought five one for shower three are on a dimmer which is nice, slightly brighter at high then incandescent but I like that for a bathroom. Happy with purchase and Polar-ray pricing is the best.

quality and value Review by Andrew
This is a very high quality replacement light, but considering the cost, it's a nice value too. I'll probably never need to change it. The real surprise though is how bright it is and the attractiveness of the illumination. (Posted on 3/13/2013)
Very Pleased Review by David Schoenow
Bought @ 25 for home. Easy to install. Produces a very good quality light. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Awesome product for high ceilings Review by Franklin
We built a home with 14' ceilings in some areas, and a rounded stairwell with 4 can lights. We did not want to have to keep risking our lives by changing an incandescent bulb several times a year. We found this product, and now have 11 in our home, and are about to purchase about 15 more. The light which is emitted is warm and more than adequate. Additionally, the LED is more of a green product, versus the mercury laden CFL bulbs. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Cree CR6 Review by Joanne Boyle
We are absolutely delighted with our purchase of 23
Cree CR6 led lights. We plan to buy 9 more in the near future. Light is soft, just right, and dimable feature was a must. Also, must comment on the service from Polar Ray. It is outstanding; one of the finest companies I have ever dealt with. Order was received on the day they specified which was only 3 days after telephone order. So polite, knowledgeable and pleasant on the phone. Thanks so much. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great product! Review by Lois Feinberg
I replaced my 5 kitchen lights with the CR6. They are easy to install, but I had my handiman do it for me because one of the cans needed adjustment.
The entire fixture looks so much better than the old components and the light is bright, but soft and dimmable!
I did my homework and found out that Cree was the highest quality LED's out there. I will do more rooms with these fixtures at a later time. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great lighting system for the price Review by Carl Quinn
I had upgraded my hallway's 60W R30 can lights to 16W CFL R30s a few years back, and I was never happy with the light quality or warm-up time. These CR6's put out much better quality light, and more of it than the CFLs, and for only 10W. The instant-on and the clean look of the trim and lens are great. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great replacement Review by Mike
I recently remodeled our living room and litchen areas and replace all the old lights with the CR6. I couldn't be more happy with the ease of installation and the quality of light that the CR6 puts out. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Cree CR6 Top of the Line Lighting Review by Donald Bowley
I purchased 86 of the Cree CR6 to retrofit the lighting in all rooms of my house. In a word, "fantastic"! Installing them was truly as easy as screwing in a bulb and everybody that sees them loves them! Great lighting, fully dimmable,and no more bulbs to replace. Polar-Ray is absolutely, hands down, the best online source for buying these bulbs. The best prices and super quick free shipping! (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Really Nice Review by Frederick
I am re-modeling my Living Room - got 5 of these with the matching top hat fixture. I am driving them from an X10 dimmer wall switch - they work great. The light color is exactly right, the intensity is greater or equal to an incandesent bulb. Best of all - No Warmup Time like CFLs. I have been so disgusted with the way CFLs start to glow and after a minute or two come up to full light - these are instant. Polar-Ray was great - I did not need to talk to anyone - everything just worked. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great! Review by Richard Savin
I purchased 5 of these for my kitchen. I installed one and turned on the lights with an original halogen 65W right next to it. The light output was EXACTLY the same. The dimmed the same too! When dim these light have a whiter color that looks more pleasing than the halogens, which dim to an orange shade of color. I couldn't be more satisfied this these lights. And to think I'm using 55 watts of energy when their on instead of 325 watts is an amazing savings all the way around. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Helps cut cost and no heat Review by quadfather
I recently built a new house and bought 14 CR6's for the high traffic areas in my house: the living room, kitchen and kid's playroom. These lights put off virtually no heat and are low wattage, so this helps on our electricity bill because the lights aren't heating up the house. I would definitely recommend these lights to anyone building or replacing lights. They’re very easy to install-just follow the directions and you can literally install these in less than 5 minutes.

Cree CR6 - Fantastic Review by Charles A Calisti
This is the best incandescent bulb replacement there can be. The color difference is non-existent, the look is fantastic, the installation is easy (watch the video), and its dimming capability is excellent. This is a must if you're replacing the old bulbs with LEDs. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Didn't fit my cans Review by Marek Gilbert
I really wanted to use these lights since the color temperature is right, life expectancy is great, and the price is right.

Unfortunately this lamp didn't work with my cans at all. Either it was too deep or the friction catch mechanism wouldn't catch.

The Sylvania RT-6 is shallower and uses the standard torsion-spring mounting mechanism that worked in all in my cans. The downside is 35,000 hours life. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Excellent LED Replacement Review by JimP
Purchased 9 of these from Polar-Ray. Fast shipping and great price.

They are a little more tricky to install than indicated by CREE inside adjustable can lights. I solved the problem by installing a small sheet metal screw to hold the inner and outer cans inplace so the light could remain flush with the ceiling.

CR6 was recently ranked first by Consumer Reports.

Love the color and the wide light diffusion. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Cree CR6 is Awesome Review by James Hag
I now have 5 CR6 and 4 LR6. For me, the CR6 is just is good, if not better, even though it's cheaper. For my house, we like the fact that the CR6 dims down more. Both are plenty bright, brighter than the incandescent bulbs they replaced, and they have a very nice white light even as they dim down. Meanwhile, the incandescent bulbs make a sick orange glow. I will eventually replace all my downlights with the CR6. It will take some time. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Work Great! Review by Susan Horovitz
We've now retrofit our hall and kitchen with these and we've been very please with both the quality of the light and the overall ease of installation. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
love it Review by Jon
Perfect replacement for an existing dimmable CFL bulb that went out. The color just right-- warm but not too warm, not the blinding blue of "daylight" bulbs and not the ghastly yellow of low wattage incandescents. Brightness is on par with the old 65W CFL. If they were cheaper I'd install them everywhere. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Cree CR6 Review by Claire
Love these - super easy to install, and much brighter than the CFL's I was using (which tend to burn out in a recessed can environment). Yes, they turn on instantly. The nice white ring gave me an immediate upgrade in appearance for the room. I've heard that the design of the bulb helps reduce loss of air flow through the fixture, thus giving an additional energy savings, especially in an older cathedral ceiling. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Would Recommend the Cree Cr6 lights Review by George
I used six cr6 lights in my kitchen remodel. I'm very pleased with the results. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great Light Review by Barry Nash
I bought the CR6 for my Kitchen, and installed it next to a regular CFL and I was pleasantly surprised that the color was exactly the same, and unlike the CFL, the CR6 did not have to warm up. The CR6 came with its own trim ring, which when bought separately, are rather expensive. I also love the dimming capability as well. I will be purchasing 4 more to finish the remodeling of our Kitchen soon. I would recommend this product. I like the 5 year warranty as well. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Bought 6 more Review by Ken
I previously bought one CR6 and one LR6C to try in our kitchen. I can't tell the different between the CR6 and a standard 65W bulb. I have since bought 6 more CR6 to replace the rest of the bulbs in the kitchen. The LR6C, cool white, are going over the sink. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
