Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 October 18, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value I bought to use for my bedside lamp. Works great no complaints. December 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 6, 2012
