Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works to my expectation Lots of bad reviews here, but I bought em anyway. They work fine. Some mentioned buzzing sounds, but they are much quieter than my regular old incandescent bulbs. I actually cant hear much buzz at all. Dimming range is much smaller than incandescent bulbs, but I knew this. I wanted a brighter bulb than the 60w that were in there without raising the heat level. These did just that and the lowest dim they are capable of is acceptable to me. (you have to tweak the adjustment on the cfl dimmer switch) As for longevity, I just got em, so no comment May 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Light Bulb Ever Bought these 3 weeks ago at my local Home Depot in Sacramento. I have three MAJOR issues with these bulbs: 1. They were expensive! Almost $17 for just 2 bulbs 2. They did not dim like they were supposed to 3. After only 3 weeks, 1 burned out. Would not suggested to others to buy and I will definitely not be repurchasing these.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burned out in 1 hour of use I bought the two pack of these bulbs. I was excited to find a dimmable CFL. I have special dimmer switches installed that are compatible with dimmable CFL's. I did not realize most CFL's are not dimmable. This one is dimmable which is great but one out of the two pack burned out in only 1 hour of use! This is NOT acceptable with the cost of bulbs running close to $8 each. And they brag about how much money you save. HA! December 23, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Bulbs These are very good quality, consistent color as I have 5 in a row installed. Dimming is good, although only to about 40-50% of full. After that, they just shut off. Not completely dimmable like the old incandescent bulbs. Maybe now a thing of the past. February 18, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inconsistent quality I bought two with the Lutron Dimmer switch for CFL/LED, because the competitors' bulbs were more expensive. One of these bulbs burned out in less than a week. Penny wise and pound foolish, I guess. They also don't dim very well, despite the 2nd adjustment on the switch. Next time I'll avoid this brand and get the more expensive ones. May 20, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor value We bought two of these for replacing 100 watt incandescents. One lasted less than three weeks at about 5 hours/day. The other one is MUCH better. It has lasted almost six weeks and hasn't burned out yet. November 11, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by great product finally here bought these bulbs myself and they work great!!! they do not always dim perfectly however for a first version of this product it is decent. hopefully they will fix the kinks. as for the reviews that say it burnt out thats very common if the dimmer switch is mis-wired. it need to wired differently for florecent bulbs and it will work fine December 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT PRICE FOR DIMMABLE Been searching for dimmable cfl and Home DEPOT came through with great product and value. Thanks. November 12, 2013
