Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Beautiful light!
I bought these bulbs for my Chandelier that needs 12 bulbs 60W Max. Using these, I am getting 480 Watt Equivalent light while consuming only 108 Watts. Thats a huge electric saving. You get a 7 years warrenty, so you pay a little extra but it will pay off really fast. Its a great buy.

If you nees a candelabra based globe light there is not a lot of choice. I bought 6 of these for a 5 light fixture about a year ago in my HD store at around 7 bucks a 2-pack. I have had 2 of them go bad and re-ordered another 2-pack on-line when I discovered that they are no longer available in the store and I had to have one to match the remaining 4 from my original purchase. About the same price for the item but then tack on shipping and the cost was well over 6 bucks a bulb. Find an alternative if you can, I'm sort of stuck.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rogerd Light bulb confusion
I remember you could buy a 40 watt light bulb with your eyes closed. But today it takes research special orders in store pickup and the dreaded color tempurture selection. CFL bulbs are garbage. These new bulbs are listed are warm white but no they are cool blue. The said they last 7 years but no three days later two out of 5 are burned out. I am going to return them. I ordered 8 bulbs hoping they would match the color of the other bulbs in the fixture. Even though they are the same number they are different colors. This is pure garbage from china

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bass51 Okay when they work
I purchased 8 lamps and installed them in my wife's vanity. Two bulbs did not work. (from different packages) I returned them the following day (36 mile round trip) and Home Depot exchanged them, no problem. I tested the new bulbs in the store so as not to waste another trip. I installed the two replacement bulbs and they worked fine until the following morning, and one no longer worked. I returned to the store and this one was replaced as well. 3 out of 10 defective, 30%, 300,000 parts per million, not a very good track record. Please understand, I do not blame Home Depot. I do think 72 extra miles of travel is a little rediculous.

Use six in the bathroom. Four of them did not last for more than 300 hours.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Inconsistent with other CFL's
Purchased 2 sets for a 4-bulb ceiling fan. All 4 bulbs are slightly different temperatures but not noticeable unless you are looking for it. My biggest complaint is that these take longer to warm up than other CFL's I have purchased. Other than the colors and warm up time they work well. If this isn't a problem then they work as expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SpeedyGonzo Good bulb but wish I could find G18 LED
I order these because I am unable to find equivalent G18 LED bulbs. The CFL bulb lifespan seems shorter than I would like.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barry Takes a long time to warm up
Just received and been using them for a couple of weeks, so the review is solely based on the performance. The only complaint is that these bulbs take a really long time to warm up to reach the normal working stage, no major issues other than that.
