Rated 1 out of 5Â by BillMcNeil Takes FOREVER to get bright
The first set I bought had one dud. The second set turned on... eventually. These lights take ages to reach maximum brightness. We're using them in the backyard when we BBQ or feed the dogs and you have to turn the lights on well before you go outside; they're just that dim when first turned on. Major fail. I'll pay a little more for an LED flood light. I got a little too cheap with this one.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JohnNY Nice light... eventually
Getting tired of constantly roaming the house replacing my R40 incandescent spots, I decided to bite the bullet and go for a long-lasting, energy efficient solution. Well, we're all going to be forced into this soon right?
I replaced two out of four spots in my kitchen with these compact fluorescent lights (CFL). These bulbs fit the ceiling cans really well and look good. Once warmed up, their color and intensity is comparable to the existing 65W incandescent bulbs. But that's my problem; these bulbs take SOOOO LOOOONG to reach a useful intensity, at least two minutes. Right now, that's inconvenient. If all my kitchen bulbs were CFL I can see how it could be downright hazardous.
I've learned my lesson. They cost more, but future replacements will be LED.

Just bought these. They are definitely 85w replacement bright, but nowhere near 2700k - they are closer to 3500. They have a blue/white hue instead of the yellow/white a 2700k bulb should have.

This light is a big disappointment. It takes what seems like a full minute to reach its full light output. It is also very harsh white while the rest of my incandescent can lights are a soft white. I wont be buying this on again for sure.

I bought two packs and all burned out in three weeks. One just went out as soon as I turned the light on after installing it. I want my refund.
