21 Most Beautiful Places In The World To Visit

To my closest with the mostest

Plenty of homes keep things lit using overhead BR30 (bulging reflector) floodlights in recessed lighting setups. If you're looking to upgrade wide beam light bulbs like those, you'll almost certainly want to go with an LED over a fluorescent model or incandescent bulbs. In your local lighting aisle, you'll find plenty of picks that are bright, dimmable, efficient and as affordable as ever -- and with most promising a life span that lasts years or even decades, it'll be a long while before you have to break out the ladder again.

So which of these new options is the right one for you? Glad you asked ,because I've got plenty of suggestions for the best LED floodlight.

Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Best overall: Cree 65W Replacement Floodlight LED bulb

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

After countless hours spent testing floodlights in CNET's lighting lab, the Cree 65W Replacement Floodlight LED emerged as our Editors' Choice for the category. It's brighter than advertised (and super bright compared with most of the competition), it's energy efficient enough to pay for itself in energy savings within a year and it'll work with your dimmer switches without flickering or buzzing. Best of all, Cree's LED bulb comes with a category-leading 10-year warranty to backup the 22.8-year life span.

All that from a $10 two-pack -- just $5 per bulb. Read CNET's Cree 65W Replacement Floodlight LED review

An excellent, flicker-free alternative: Philips BR30 Floodlight LED with warm glow dimming

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

The newest floodlight LEDs from Philips match Cree's outstanding 10-year warranty. They're also super bright, a bit more efficient and a bit better at heat dissipation than Cree. They don't flicker or buzz on dimmer switches and they get warmer and more candle-like in tone as you dim them down, which some will appreciate. On top of all that, they're slightly less expensive than Cree at about $4.50 per bulb.

So why don't they get the top spot? It's honestly neck and neck, but to my eye, Cree offers a slight uptick in color quality (my Twitter followers agreed when I put it to a vote). And if you want the full 10-year warranty, you'll have to register your bulbs -- otherwise, you only get five years of coverage. In addition, the Philips bulb topped out at a too-low average of 92% of its actual brightness on the dimmer switches I tested it with. That undercuts the brightness and efficiency selling points to a small extent. But make no mistake, this is still a terrific choice for almost everyone. Read CNET's Philips BR30 Floodlight LED review

Best budget pick: GE Basic 65W Replacement Floodlight LED

Chris Monroe/CNET

If you need to replace a bunch of floodlights and you want to keep the cost as low as possible, then put the GE Basic floodlight LED at the top of your list. Available in a six- or 12-pack at Lowe's for less than $3 per bulb, it's one of the lighting aisle's best values. And don't let the Basic branding fool you -- these bulbs are energy efficient, fully dimmable and they manage heat surprisingly well. 

Their light output isn't quite as bright as Cree and they won't last as long, but those tradeoffs are fair at this price -- especially given that each energy-efficient GE Basic LED will pay for itself in energy savings in less than six months if you're upgrading from incandescent bulbs. Read CNET's GE Basic 65W Floodlight LED review

Best low-light choice for non-dimmer switches: Philips SceneSwitch Floodlight LED

Chris Monroe/CNET

It's a relatively expensive illumination option at $11 each, but the Philips SceneSwitch Floodlight LED is actually three bulbs in one: A yellowy, soft white bulb, a bright white, daylight bulb and a dimmed-down nightlight. Want to change between the three? Just switch the bulb off and then back on again within a few seconds. Leave it off longer than that, and it'll turn back on to the setting you left it at when you return.

That's a great pitch for anyone who doesn't have dimmer switches but still wants to be able to dim the lights for movie night or illumination for late-night trips to the bathroom. The bulb also aced pretty much every one of our tests, and with a power draw of just 8 watts (or a lot less if you're running it on the nightlight setting), it'll still save you money over the long run despite the higher-than-average entry cost. Read CNET's Philips SceneSwitch Floodlight LED review

Best color quality upgrade: GE Reveal BR30 Floodlight LED

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

Some light bulbs are better than others at making colors look accurate and vivid -- but few of today's LEDs do as good a job with color quality as the GE Reveal line of light bulbs, which make color quality the main point of focus.

I've tested several GE Reveal bulbs over the years, and they always deliver on their promise of better-looking colors. The latest BR30-shaped bright light wide beam floodlight versions, now available in a two-pack at stores such as Lowe's and Target, are no exception. Unlike previous-gen GE Reveal bulbs, which filtered out excess yellow light, these new versions achieve better-looking colors by boosting the product's ability to render reds, a longtime LED sticking point. It works -- and it also means that the bulbs are both super bright and more efficient than before. Read CNET's GE Reveal BR30 Floodlight LED review

To my closest with the mostest

For most of my life, I've been a woman with male best friends. I don't mean that in some gross, off-putting "I don't get along with other women because I am way too sexxxy" kind of way — most of my friends do happen to be women. But for whatever reason, I've typically also had more close male friends than the average lady.

When you're a woman with a male best friend, people think that you're up to something. They can't quite agree on what it is — are you trying to get laid? Trying to inflate your ego by being the "cool girl"? Trying to do both at the same time?

And even if all that judgment doesn't bother you personally, you still have to deal with the weird hang-ups of your other friends, your family, and even science. There are new psychological studies conducted seemingly every year devoted to picking apart the extremely pressing question of whether men and women can be friends, even though they never seem to come to any concrete answers. (Over the course of two years, Scientific American covered one 2012 study that claimed that men and women can't be friends because men are disgusting horn-dog monsters, and one 2013 study that showed that men and women can be friends.)

And yes, sometimes, male BFFs do end up becoming something more. But often times, they don't. And no matter what happens, women with male best friends aren't pulling some kind of sexual long con. I'm not saying we deserve a medal for dealing with the pressure of everyone's suspicions and expectations and still managing to maintain kick-ass friendships in the process, but ... okay, maybe I am saying that. Here are 34 things only we women with male best friends truly understand.

YOU AND YOUR MALE BFF ARE LIKE ANY OTHER PAIR OF BEST FRIENDS

You care about each other intensely, support each other unconditionally, and mock each other mercilessly.

OKAY, THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT WITH YOUR MALE BFF

Even if he's one of the girls, or you're one of the guys, the male-female BFF dynamic has a few subtle differences from other kinds of friendships.

LIKE, YOU GET TO BE AN UNQUESTIONED FASHION EXPERT AROUND HIM

Even if you keep your own clothes in a giant pile in the middle of the room, you're basically Rachel Zoe when he's trying to figure out which pair of khakis to buy (try to talk him out of the ones with the pleats kindly, if you can).

YOU TEND TO GET AWAY WITH DIRTIER JOKES

I'm not saying none of your female friends want to hear that joke that ends with the farmer's dick falling off in the automatic milking machine; I'm just saying male friends are usually a more consistent audience for your "blue" material.

AND THOUGH HIS COMPLIMENTS ARE ALWAYS A LITTLE WEIRD, YOU APPRECIATE THE EFFORT

It's as if every few weeks, someone tells him that women like to be complimented, so he says something nice about your hair (even if it looks exactly the same as it always does).

HIS DATING ADVICE IS BIG BROTHERLY

Your female friends will carefully listen to the unique elements of your current dating drama, and come up with thoughtful and relevant advice; your male friends will tell you that this guy is an asshole. No one hears more about how guys are "all animals" than a woman with a male best friend.

SO WHEN HE ACTUALLY GETS ALONG WITH YOUR NEW BOO, YOU KNOW THEY'RE A KEEPER

His approval means a lot, which is terrifying, if you think about it.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART, YOU DO THE SAME THINGS ALL BEST FRIENDS DO

You know: hanging out, confiding in each other, watching hilariously bad movies, picking out neon tie dye t-shirts together. Typical friendship stuff.

WHICH IS WHY IT'S WEIRD THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK YOUR FRIENDSHIP IS DIFFERENT

You try not to care, and just focus on your awesome friendship. But it can be really exhausting to spend so much time correcting people's perceptions and answering their super invasive questions.

EVERYONE ASKS IF YOU TWO ARE DATING...

...EXCEPT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO JUST ASSUME THAT YOU'RE DATING

Has it suddenly become really trendy for people who are dating to never touch each other? Is that why everyone assumes that you're dating?

AND THEN, THERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO THINK YOU SHOULD BE DATING

Their advice usually goes something like this: "Romantic chemistry, schromatic chemistry! You already like his personality, he's located conveniently near to you, and he has genitals and everything! What are you waiting for?!"

PEOPLE ASSUME THINGS ABOUT YOU WHEN THEY HEAR YOU HAVE A MALE BEST FRIEND

LIKE THAT YOU MUST NOT LIKE OTHER WOMEN

OR THAT YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO GET ATTENTION FROM OTHER MEN

These people have clearly never had a male best friend, for there is no easier way to make sure that no guys talk to you for an entire night than to show up to a bar with a male friend in tow.

OR THAT YOU'RE SECRETLY IN LOVE WITH YOUR BFF

I mean, you couldn't just have things in common and complimentary personalities, right? There has to be an END GAME!

OR THAT YOU'RE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF A GUY WHO IS IN LOVE WITH YOU

And if you protest that this isn't true, you get a big hot earful of "He's just keeping his love a secret from you!"

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE INSIST THAT MEN AND WOMEN CAN'T BE FRIENDS

Really? Half the population can't be friends with each other?

NOT TO SAY THAT YOU HAVEN'T WONDERED WHY YOU'RE NOT DATING

It is true, you do have a lot in common, like a shared history and a passion for mini-golf — and isn't that the true backbone of every good relationship?

COULDN'T YOU MAKE IT WORK?

Does love have to sweep you off your feet? Maybe you guys could learn to be attracted to each other, the way your grandma keeps telling you.

MAYBE YOU TRY AND FIND OUT

This is usually proceeded by A. a terrible break-up, B. the consumption of a metric ton of liquor, or C. both.

AND SOMETIMES, IT DOES WORK

These are the jerks that encourage everyone else in the world to announce that you and your male BFF will eventually realize that you're in love with each other.

OR AT LEAST, FOR A WHILE

Yes, okay, fine, everyone was right — it's fun to date someone that you already have so much in common with!

UNTIL ... JUST. NO.

The emotional fall-out from hooking up with your male BFF and having it not work out burns hotter than a thousand suns, and is more painful than a thousand awkward OkCupid dates.

BUT EITHER WAY, YOU AND YOUR MALE BFF WORK THROUGH IT

You have as many awkward brunches as it takes for you two to start being able to have fun again (and to begin to forget what the other one looked like naked). And eventually, everyone moves on. But even when nothing sexual has ever happened between you and your male BFF.

THAT IS, IF YOU WOULD EVEN CONSIDER MAKING OUT IN THE FIRST PLACE

Probably not.

BECAUSE, MOST LIKELY, THAT WOULD BE LIKE KISSING YOUR BROTHER

It just seems ... wrong.

STILL, THEIR NEW SIGNIFICANT OTHER WILL BE SUSPICIOUS OF YOU AT FIRST

You may find yourself going to absurd lengths to show that you're not a sexual threat, like talking in her presence about your many interesting gastrointestinal issues, or making sure to wear your least-flattering, most coffee-stained clothes when all three of you go out together.

AND YOUR NEW BOO WILL WONDER ABOUT YOU TWO

You've wasted many a good hour explaining to your dude that you and your male BFF just spend time just hanging out and play Call of Duty —not heeding the call of each other's booty. Soon, they realize they have nothing to worry about.

BUT IT'S NOT EVEN REALLY THEIR FAULT

With the way the world insists that men and women can't ever be friends, your suspicious significant others are just reacting to what they've heard their entire lives. So you can't really be annoyed with them ... even though you really, really want to be.

AND WITH A LITTLE EFFORT, YOU CAN ALL END UP ONE BIG, HAPPY FAMILY

Okay, sometimes it feels like a LOT of effort. But this is your best friend we're talking about.

AND IF THEY CAN'T GET ALONG? WELL, THAT RELATIONSHIP WASN'T GOING TO WORK ANYWAY.

Nope.

BECAUSE THIS GUY? SURE, HE HAS HIS QUIRKS

You didn't spend all these years helping each other through hard times and trash-talking each other while playing Super Mario Kart just to give up because the world doesn't get it.

BUT HE'S FOR KEEPS.

Whoever said men and women can't be friends clearly hasn't met us.

14 Prayers for a Friend That'll Give Them Strength and Love

To my closest with the mostest

4. Georgia O'Keeffe to Alfred Stieglitz

Another artist who excelled at writing spicy love letters: famed painter, Georgia O'Keeffe. Over the course of her 30-year romance with celebrated photographer Alfred Stieglitz, O'Keeffe exchanged more than 5,000 letters (that's roughly 25,000 pages) on everything from the mundane ongoings of her daily life to some of her more passionate encounters with Stieglitz. In all, the letters show a far more seductive side to the artist than her flowery paintings may initially suggest.

"Dearest — my body is simply crazy with wanting you — If you don't come tomorrow — I don't see how I can wait for you — I wonder if your body wants mine the way mine wants yours — the kisses — the hotness — the wetness — all melting together — the being held so tight that it hurts — the strangle and the struggle."

5. Beethoven to his "Immortal Beloved"

While the identity of Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved,” to whom the iconic composer and pianist wrote a number of letters in 1812, is still largely a mystery, the letters themselves paint a very vivid picture. Many historians believe Beethoven's "Beloved" to have been a diplomat’s daughter, named Antonie Brentano, to whom the composer dedicated his "Diabelli Variations Op. 120." In one of his letters found after his death, he famously wrote:

"Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, Be calm-love me-today-yesterday-what tearful longings for you-you-you-my life-my all-farewell. Oh continue to love me-never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours."

6. George H. Bush to Barbara Bush

Perhaps one of the most romantic love letters of all time was written by late U.S. President George H. Bush to his wife, Barbara. In 1942, on the heels of World War II, Bush enlisted in the Navy, and while stationed overseas, wrote letters to both his parents and then-girlfriend, Barbara Pierce of Rye, New York. To this day, only one love letter to Barbara remains from the former president's time overseas, as Barbara reportedly lost the majority of her letters in a move after the pair were married. In the surviving letter, Bush joyfully explains how he envisions the couple's future, and describes how "lucky" their future children will be.

"This should be a very easy letter to write — words should come easily and in short it should be simple for me to tell you how desperately happy I was to open the paper and see the announcement of our engagement, but somehow I can't possibly say all in a letter I should like to. I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought about the immeasurable joy that will be ours some day. How lucky our children will be to have a mother like you..."

7. Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan

Another former politician whose romantic writings are worth mentioning: 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan. In a letter to his wife, Nancy, in 1972, prior to their 20th anniversary, Reagan (who, at the time and prior to his presidency, was serving as the Governor of California) penned a romantic note to his wife expressing his undying love for her, and explaining that he never wants to leave her side.

"The important thing is I don't want to be without you for the next 20 years, or 40, or however many there are. I've gotten very used to being happy and I love you very much indeed."
