Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mel Do not last 7 years
I will be looking into other options. Some of the bulbs work intermittently but others burned out before the 7 year warranty. Had better luck with regular incandescent. IMO, not worth the money.

Package says they are to last seven days. In fact, in one year, five of the eight we bought have gone bad. They are being used in a fixture indicated on the package that they are to work in. Bought many different lights but these are with out question, the worst of the worst.

Purchased four of these bulbs and 2 of the four burnt out in 6 months. Tried calling the Ecosmart customer service number and it is a non working number. Long lasting? Absolutely not.

Do NOT buy. I purchased 2 and they both burned out too soon. Cheap light bulbs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by virtual123 poor choice
Have had these bulbs in my bathroom for just over a year, there are three lights in the fixture. All three have failed less than 1500 hours. That means that you’ll need 6 bulbs to go 8000 hours so this bulb will cost you 2.5 times more to operate for 8000 hours. Not to mention that you’re putting 6 times more mercury in landfills. IF ECOSMART did their reliability testing correctly then three bulbs shouldn’t have failed in this time frame, just points to poor quality.

This is my first ever review and as stated in the other reviews these bulbs last about a year. I have them in the kitchen ceiling fan and and could not remember where I bought them from. After reading reviews I had to state how poorly they lasted. Will now look to change them and will check with fan

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kenny Worst CFL bulb I have TRIED to use
Very temperamental until their complete failure. Often had to tap on bulb for it to energize. While they still worked, they start out very dim until they warmed up. Both bulbs in the package have now failed many many hours before their rated life. Not a good value at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FerdBurfle Currently getting a replacement for 4 9W Bulbs
2 purchased under the EcoSmart name, and 2 named n:vision, ALL 4 burned out in less than 12 months.
I don't mind paying a little more for something that outlasts "regular" energy-wasting bulbs, but when it makes me DRIVE to Home Depot to purchase replacements, I wonder how "green" this product really is...
