Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by hear that buzzing? stay away from this junk. Inconsistent color, poor quality control, and a constant buzzing noise. I'll be returning these and looking for a better option. November 7, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of Time & money Bought 2 packs (4 bulbs) for three new two level outdoor lights. One burnt out in 2 days, one in 4 days and the other will not dim (on bright constantly). Not the fixture because incandescent bulbs work fine but I the government is outlawing them.. June 1, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 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 2 out of 5 by Short Life Package says it "lasts 9 years". More like 9 months. September 14, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pure Junk Don't waste your $$$$ - only lasted me about 10 hours. February 11, 2013
