Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a long life bulb Purchased to replace a 150W incandescent bulb in my garage. It is in an open base, inverted socket in the middle of my garage space for general lighting (i.e.- not an enclosed fixture). I have florescent tubes for when working out there. Garage is heated and kept to a 40 deg F minimum in the winter. Installed the bulb on February 1st, 2014 and it died August 13th, 2014. The light is generally on ~8-10 hours per day, so the life was ~2000 hrs, nowhere near the 10,000 hr life as stated on the packaging. Looking for a different bulb/mfg now. August 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great energy saver I replaced all of my home's 100+ watt bulbs with this bulb. The major difference I saw was in my electric bill and that is about 20% lower than it used to be. I am very impressed with the overall quality and return of investment by this product. Compared to regular bulbs, this bulb is a bit expensive but compared to what you save in few months, this bulb is quite cheap. The moment you turn the light ON, its not as bright as a normal bulb will be. But in about 2 minutes, it becomes brighter than the regular ones. If you want to bring your electric cost down without losing the beautiful warm yellow light, go buy it, you will like it. October 11, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lasted 3 months After two and a half months, the CFL bulb began buzzing intermittently. At three months, the buzzing had become continuous and began flickering. Discarded. I had planned on replacing the other lights in the house with Ecosmart; fortunately the one bulb I purchased failed before I did so. I won't purchase the brand again until I see the reviews improve substantially. June 22, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by flickering I bought 2 of those 150W. They are about $12 each. They both are non stop flickering. I tried them on other outlets still flickering. I returned them and exchanged 4 for $12 100W. 100W bulbs are fine. November 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have nooo complaints at all right now I got me like ten of these about two months ago and they are on for like 18hrs a day every day and they are still goin strong so idk it was just my luck but they are working great October 3, 2010
