Rated 1 out of 5Â by allanmiata Not worth the money
Bought these bulbs cause of the 5,000k light temp. That is the only thing that was good. But sorry for me and others they lasted only 6 months. Fooled me that the package said lasting many years! Didn't even get 1 year. As for me, I refuse to buy any more. O well I must keep searching for a 5,000k temp glob bulb cause putting on make up is a bummer (said the wife).

These are incredibly expensive light bulbs, they are supposed to last and save money, but that isn't true. I bought 6 for a vanity light in our master bathroom and every 5-6 months I have to replace another one. They are called vanity lights so where else am I supposed to use them except in a bathroom. I would like to go back to incandescent bulbs but feel like I've invested so much money in these stupid bulbs already that I would just be throwing away money at this point. I'm so glad I didn't put them in any of our other bathrooms. Oh, and their packaging is misleading. When they have something called "Soft White" you are guaranteed to be flooded in ugly yellowish lighting that makes everything look ugly. "Cool White" is what my original packaging said 7 years ago, now the cool bulbs are noted as "Daylight". I find that annoying when trying to find replacements. I always manage to get the wrong one and have to exchange it once I figure out that once again I have the wrong stupid bulb. Arghhh!

I bought these bulbs for my bathroom vanity light because I wanted a nice looking CFL bulb , However , 1 blew out the day after i bought it .I returned to Homedepot to exchange it. When i installed the new one , 1 wasn't working .The packaging was unopened , so i know it must had been a cheaply made product. And it's not my fixture because I had the spiral CFL's on them for 3 yrs.Also , It's very annoying they take a long time to get to full brightness .
don't buy this product, you'll regret it.

The standard bulbs lasted a couple of years. These new CFL bulbs last 6-7 months. These government mandated CFL bulbs are garbage. I suggest saving your sales receipt and take them back everytime one burns out. They are supposed to last 3-4 years according to the label on the box. Then perhaps when commercial dumpsters are needed every month at each store to haul away the returned bulbs somebody will start listening to what the public wants.
