Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules Gorgeous clean light!
I have 6 recessed lights in my kitchen. I had regular flood lights in them that gave off a warm light. The light was making my maple cabinets look orange and my limestone floor look blah. I realized I needed to find flood lights that gave off a cool light instead of warm light. These daylight Ecosmart bulbs are fantastic! They totally changed the look of my kitchen. The limestone floor looks fabulous and the cabinet color isn't reading orange any longer. Try these if you want bright clean light!

I bought these lights as they were affordable and came in boxes of 6 . Most of the bulbs burnt out way before the stated life expectancy of the bulb . Takes a minute for them to get bright but thats not a big deal .Bottom line a bulb should not need replacing within 3 months when its only being used for 4 hours a night .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brightpath007 Don't believe the life on these bulbs
I have purchased the Ecosmart compact fluorescent bulbs spots R-30 for several years now. Primarily because they can be purchased in a 6 pack and the cost is fairly low as I have lots of ceiling can lights in my house. I have found these bulbs to be very hit and miss. I noticed that I was having to replace some bulbs often so I started to write the replacement date on the bulb so I would know how long the bulb lasted. I have had some fail within a month, some a few months. A few of them will actually last numerous years.
Ecosmart must use very cheap components such as the ballast to keep the price low. It would really be helpful if the manufacturers were required to print the early failure rate of the bulbs on the box. I would guess it would be quite high.
