Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by dont use if it gets cold out these do as they claim , when its warm out. it was in the 60's 2 weeks ago when installed, dropped to the 30's this week. i know CFL's take some time to warm up , but these never get turned off... so you would think they would stay warmed up... nope! was 36 in my garage when i went out there this am. i got more light from the 4 led night lights pluged into the wall than i did the 2 of these in the ceiling. looks like money wasted, i should have followed my instinct and just bought the Cree LED's....

Rated 2 out of 5 by Extremely IFFY I have been using these as grow lights for several months now and I have been on the edge with them. While they are bright, lately, with any package that I have been getting from my local HD, I have had nothing but issues with these bulbs- mainly with them burning out after only a few hours use, or having them "dim out" to which I have to turn off the lamp for 10-15 minutes and then turn it back on every couple of hours. From November '12- Feb '13, I had basically no issues. Now in Feb '13, its seems like that is all I am getting. Yes, they are cheap- but now I am going to invest in another brand (albeit more expensive) in hopes of finding a better bulb that will actually last how long they are rated for (in number of hours used).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken when I bought them Three out of four bulbs were broken when I bought them. As I tried to screw in the remaining bulb, it broke in my hands. Don't waste your money. November 20, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Really, really slow to full brightness! Bought these for my wood shop so I could see the true color of my work without having to carry it outside. Works in that regard, but they take close to 5 minutes to come up to full brightness (base up, shop heated to 70 degrees). Very, very annoying. November 27, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by The bulbs failed to last more than 3 months I installed three of the bulbs in my home office hoping to have a really bright workspace. It seemed like an ideal environment to give them a try as the lights are rarely cycled more than once a day and while the 9 year lifespan is on an estimated 3hrs/day using these for 9hrs/day should still see a 3 year lifespan and plenty of energy savings. After three months the first bulb failed in a loud pop, I replaced it with the fourth bulb from the pack that I still had as a spare, within three days the new bulb failed along with one of the two remaining originally installed bulbs from the 4 pack. These bulbs also were also slow to warm up to full brightness when initially turned on each day. September 30, 2013
