Rated 4 out of 5 by Fits my HD ceiling fan I bought a ceiling fan several years ago, and didn't realize initially that it took odd sized bulbs, which have become more difficult to find. I do have several spare incandescent ones,but they burn out relatively quickly, since the fan is also the only ceiling light available in the room and I got tired of teetering on a stool to replace them. It took a while, but I finally found these bulbs. (I'd seen the 60W CFLs in the store, but the fan manufacturer's customer service insisted they had to be 40W). So when I found these online I ordered two, and they arrived within a week at the store. I just got around to installing them and those two work well enough that I am about to order two more for the remaining two sockets. They seemed to come on quickly enough and the brightness is about equivalent to the incandescent counterparts. Thankfully they are bulb shaped and not the ugly coil things because they are in plain view. My only real complaint (other than the cost, although I've come to expect that with CFLs) is that Home Depot doesn't carry them in the store. They do have the 60W intermediate bulbs in the store, just not the 40s. And since I bought the fan that uses this odd size at Home Depot, I think it would be helpful if they carried bulbs to fit it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CFL bulbs for Ceiling Fan This is a great product, and certainly better than having to put a whole new fan in. I just wonder why they don't carry it in the stores. October 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Overpriced, bad quality, working not more than 1 year. I have a lamp for those bulbs in my rent apt. I spent already a fortune on those lamps. It’s hard to find and really bad quality. Avoid. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits my lamp! you pay smaller bills, you can afford to forget to turn it off. Fits my rare IKEA lamp. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Didn't like that they wouldn't ship to store in my town so I had to pay shipping on them, and only sold at home depot. The light bulb is fine alittle on the expensive side. I don't like how this is only sold through home depot then I was told I couldn't ship it to the store in my town so I had to ship it to my house and pay the shipping and handling. I would recommend before you buy a ceiling fan at home depot you make sure and check that you can buy light bulbs for it at other retailors. August 21, 2013
