Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Acceptable 5 stars for color/brightness *after* the warmup period. 3 stars for the warmup period. These are *not* instant-on bulbs. They start out dim and warm-colored, then go to brighter and quite cold-colored, then finally bright and warm. This took over 10 minutes to make that transition. These are acceptable due to the fact that they're on almost all day, so the warmup period isn't much of an issue, but if they were getting turned on/off regularly, I wouldn't be too happy with these. I do recommend these bulbs if your usage scenario is similar as once they're warmed up they're quite nice. May 18, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Slow start up time. I used 4 of these to replace incandescent bulbs in 4" recessed cans in the library. So far so good. Light is bright, slightly more white than the incandescent that they replaced. The incandescent overheated in the narrow 4" cans and would go out every 2-3 months. However be aware that these CFL bulbs have a slow start up time and it takes up to 2 mins for them to come up to full intensity. I would not use them in the hallways, stairs or anyplace where you want the light to come on right away. My other open spiral cfls are faster. Since these are in the library I have chosen to leave them on rather then returning them. I just have to wait a minute before they come up in intensity. January 4, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not warm white These bulbs stand out as the most white CFL in my whole house...not sure how they can call it soft white. I'm returning them. November 8, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for the price. They don't warm up as fast as I would like, but it's not any slower than any other cfl I've purchased. They seem like good bulbs so far after about 3 weeks. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by happy I can't comment on the bulb's length yet as it is too soon, but the light itself is good. It does take a minute to get to full brightness-so plan on a warm up period. But as long as that doesn't matter, the soft light looks nice and as long as the bulb lasts....should be a great value. December 29, 2013
