I've been having mixed luck with pricey LEDs actually lasting a while, so when I needed some bulbs in a pinch, I figured I'd go with reliable old incandescent bulbs. Yes, they aren't as energy efficient. No, they don't claim to last for 23 years. Problem is these are junk too. I installed 5 of these and only one remains after about 2 months. Guess I'll try another brand of LEDs and hope for better performance.

I replaced most of my lights in the house as they burned out with these and they all had about 1/3 the life of an incandescent bulb.

If you need the exercise of constantly changing bulbs, these are for you.

Gives off good light, but they don't last, at all. I'm changing these out all of the time. Several have lasted less than a month. Save yourself the hassle and buy something else.

Replaced a bulb in my garage that lasted for 18 years (at least!) a week ago. First stays for 4 days. Second died in one day! What a joke. Claims 2X life! Do not buy!!!

Used daily, no burnouts for over a year. Used in 4 bulb bathroom light fixture. Great color, close to natural light. Able to be dimmed very low. Closest alternative to incandescent I have found.

I installed these light bulbs in my bath room less than 2 months ago. Not a single bulb is still working!

I decided to wait to write a review based on the other review about short life. I removed all of the CFLs in my home and installed these Eco 40's. Ironically all of the interference on my home speakers and radios is gone now. I have had them in 3 months now and all are still working. another thing is that when I use a watt meter to measure the watts it says only 21.2 watts. The 14 watt CFLS I had in also used 21 to 22 watts. I read the power factor on CFLS is horrible and decided to check it and sure enough it was .56. This Eco 40 has a perfect 1 Power Factor. The Color is also 100Cri like the sun where the CFL was 76 making my home feel like a morgue. Great bulb. I am not expecting this to last 7 years. Then again I tried an LED that burned out in a month.
