Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Short Life Package says it "lasts 9 years". More like 9 months. September 14, 2012
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 Pure Junk Don't waste your $$$$ - only lasted me about 10 hours. February 11, 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 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 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.
