40W Equivalent Soft White (2,700K) A15 CFL Light Bulb is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great brightness, doesn't produce heat, works well This is a great bulb for a bathroom light fixture, bright enough for the wife to put on makeup, remains cool, and energy efficient. Bulbs are very costly for a six light fixture although the standard bulbs created too much heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall good bulb updated to these CFL bulbs when my incandescent ones blew out. took a while to find a compatible bulb so I finally ordered these online. they work well, give off a nice clean white light, similar to a traditional bulb, not blue-cast like some other CFL. for 40W equivalent they are brighter than the bulbs they replaced, not quite 60W, more like a 50W. the bulbs are in a open receptacle and they look good, you cannot tell they are CFL, the frosted housing covers the coil well but they are about 1/4 longer then the incandescents I replaced. lastly the only "issue" is that they are quick to start but not to reach full brightness. this means they instantly turn on but at a dimmed capacity, it takes about 30 seconds for the bulbs to reach maximum brightness. overall quite happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I bought to use for my bedside lamp. Works great no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money The only reason I gave it a 1 is because I couldn't give it a ZERO. I wanted more light so I bought three of these 40W LEDs to replace three 25W incandesent bulbs. I now have three 40W, LEDs, 120W total. Replacing three 25W, total of 75 W and the new LED's are not as birght as the old ones. I spent $20+ for nothing.
