Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Bulb Regardless of the Price Never mind the fact that this bulb gives you accurate color temperature for crafts and other such purposes. Scientific evidence also points to this type of light being effective for various health related disorders such as SAD [seasonal affective disorder]. Search on your favorite search engine for "Why Use Full Spectrum Lighting" for more information. Anything that has health benefits attributed to it is worth the extra costs in my opinion. Of course Home Depot &/or the manufacturer may not make such claims. But this is a full spectrum 5500k bulb. October 3, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Natural light color. These bulbs keep my wife happy when she does her make up, now the colors at home look the same as in the sun light. Happy wife = happy life. :-) Not sure why SUAsua was upset about the life time of the bulbs. I got 8 of them and they have been working about 2 hours per day for 6 months now. So far so good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT RELIABLE/Defective New bulb just went off after maximum 2 hrs of operation, dead: very very bad. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bright and safer Got this for a reading light near the bed. The bulb is very small and It gives off a nice white light. This is great for lamps within the reach of kids since it doesn't get hot enough to burn, and it seems plausible that the coating would contain most breaks. At triple the price of regular CFL, and lower lumen/watt, it isn't for everywhere but if you are concerned about breakage it is a winner. September 27, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by excellent color for small applications I really like this bulb in terms of color rendering and the special coating too. But I found that the brightness is not quite sufficient for my relatively small, 24"x35" drawing table. If you need to light a smaller area with it for detail work, it could be a good choice. Otherwise buy the 100W equivalent version which worked perfectly for me. July 3, 2012
