Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great light quality, poor life Bought 6 a year ago. The light quality is great. But the lights are supposed to last 9 years, the third one just blew. I will be looking for different brand 5000K bulbs. December 31, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Handy for chandelier but do not last at all Have a hanging light fixture where one usually puts incandescent "flame" shaped 40W bulbs. Wanted daylight color, so this was the only affordable option. Bought and installed 5 at the same time. 9 months later -- within a week of each other -- three of them went dead. Surpising not just that they lasted so little, but also that they died at the same time. Two are still going, but for how long? Life ratings on CFL bulbs usually assume 3 hours per day, and perhaps these were on 6-9 hours -- but do the math, that cut the life by no more than 30-50%. So they should still be going another year or two. By comparison I have other-branded, larger (like 100w equivalent) CFLs that are on 12-15 hours a day and still going strong after a year. I wonder if small wattage CFL bulbs simply can't last as long -- or if these are just lousy products... October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Know what 5000k means before buying If you know color temperature, these lights are great. If you aren't sure, then look up some information online or consult someone in the store. These lights perform well and are comparable to other brands. January 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product Quality is good. I recommend this product. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for Video work I use these daylight bulbs to light my green screen and talent in my video work. They work great, and that means a lot since our videos are broadcast globally. August 21, 2013
