Rated 4 out of 5Â by Deej Great product and easy on the pocket.
I wasn't sure that this product would give me the lighting or the effect I wanted, but once installed, they are just perfect. unlike other bulbs that come on super bright, these come on dim and brighten within seconds. Additionally, the cost of these bulbs (3 to a sleeve) is reasonable.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by David Very Long Warm Up Period
These bulbs were a perfect fit for our eat in area with a ceiling fan, or so I thought. The are EXTREMELY dim when you first turn them on and they take a very long time to warm up to full temp/brightness/color. I plan on returning them and getting LED's instead because these are just pathetic with how long they take to warm up.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by orphx cant beat a cfl, its been about 3 months
it's been about 3 months since i purchased these bulbs for my entry and they are still working great--cheap cfls would have died out by now.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EdFromOhio Nice and compact, but with one serious flaw
These are a nice replacement for light fixtures that have the candle-type bulbs with the candelabra base.
However, the threads on these are a tad bit short. Doesn't sound like a problem, except that their plastic housing butts right up against the metal threads and sticks out about 2mm past the metal, thus keeping it from screwing all the way into the socket. I put 5 of these in a light fixture, and nothing lit up. I had to get a razor knife and whittle the plastic down to being flush with the metal threads so it could go just a little further into the socket. Now all is well.
It probably should have lost more than 1 star, but it was fixable and they work well once they make contact. Another light fixture did not have that problem. However, the company really needs to modify their design.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ronnie Torn between quality and poor engineering.
I am impressed with the color, life span, and how quickly it gets up to full light output but I am frustrated by the plastic flange around the bottom of the metal threaded section of the bulb because it is so wide you cannot screw the light bulb into a standard fixtures light socket. So I have had to file or grind the plastic down in order for it to be able to make contact with bottom of the light socket. Unfortunately I ruined 2 out of 18 trying to do so. I would just expect more research and development before mass producing a bulb which is otherwise a quality bulb.
