  •  Philips Ambient (4+ / 0-)

    The Philips Ambient is dimable and close enough to the color of an incandescent that most can tell the difference.  The 60 watt version is $23 dollars on Amazon or Home Depot and the 75 watt version is $38.  The only negative I have found is that they are not recommended for enclosed fixtures because of heat issues.  They don't generate much heat, but what they do has to be dissipated by airflow or it will shorten the life of the bulb significantly.  There are bulbs that do not have this problem (example XLEDIA) but I have not tried one yet.
