Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by This is not a 40W equivalent, and is very inefficient This bulb is only a 20W equivalent. With high-efficiency incandescent bulbs outputting >18lm/W 40W would be 720 lumens. This outputs 250W. That's a pretty big difference. Average efficiency for a 40W incandescent is 12.6lm/W, meaning 20W would be 252 lumens. Right on the spot. This is also very inefficient for an LED. At 250lm, this should be around 3W max, not 7W. July 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by CFL replacement for outdoor lighting The product worked as designed as arrived as indicated. I was tired of changing the bulbs in the lamp post and scones illuminating my sidewalk and front door respectively. So I made the change to CFL and was pleased to see the CFL format in the candleabra style. Glad I made the switch. April 9, 2013
