I've had many CREE LED bulbs go bad, and Home Depot has been great about replacing them with no fuss, no muss. But as time goes on, I am sort of waiting for the response "we don't replace those any more; you have to send in the old bulb to CREE". At that point, I'll be upset, but I doubt I'll box up a bulb and pay postage to send it back.
It all depends on the replacement cost.
