Rated 1 out of 5Â by Gatman9999 Not 2700k like the package says.
Just picked these up and they are going right back to the store. They take longer than I think they should take to reach full brightness, despite being labeled as reaching full brightness quickly (obviously quickly is relative, but I don't think anyone would call more than a minute quick for these).
The killer is they are NOT soft white. I have many other bulbs in our kitchen that are CFLs and rated at the same 2700k. Those all have a soft, pleasing light to them. These are bright, harsh, white light. They stand out as odd when you look at the room as they are clearly not 2700k temperature like every other CFL bulb in room. Avoid them if you want truly soft white light.

These are a near-perfect replacement for a Bathroom g25 Globe. I have 4 in the half bath. They are a little on the 'cool' side as far as color temp, but my walls are painted blue. I will be buying more to replace another 5 in the other hall bath.
They do have a slight hum but it doesn't bother me much and you can't hear it over the bath fan. I have sensitive hearing and its a quiet home.
I bought them because they were in-expensive, 60w equal, and are saving me money on my bill. I don't care that they are not exactly like an incandescent. I knew that when I decided to buy.

I have a vanity in my guest bathroom that takes these bulbs and I've gone thru 6 packages of these.. They barely last a year and if you don't keep the packaging you can not return them. I will never buy Ecosmart again. At $10 a pop I wasted over $60 in light bulbs just for my bathroom alone. The 7 year warranty* is only good if you keep the packaging. Really, who keeps all their packaging.. Awesome scam that ecosmart has got going.

I used Ecosmart before and thought they were a good brand. I'm returning these. They start out way too dim and take too long to reach full brightness. They also make a loud 60Hz hum similar to a large Florescent Light from the 80s. Purchased 6 and they were all the same. -Avoid.
