Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy. They are not instant-on. Would never have bought had I known there is a 2-minute delay for bulb to fully light. I thought that technology was a thing of the past. Also, I would have preferred the bulb to be as long as previous bulbs to stick out my kitchen cans a little and light more. Length of bulb was not indicated so I couldn't know. Guess I could adjust the socket in each can down a little once more but what a pain. Will never buy these bulbs again. Was attracted by the 1300 lumens which is equivalent to the 120 incandescent reflector floods I usually use. May 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement Flood Light bulbs The bulbs work great; however, I was shorted one bulb in one of the two boxes of 12. The time it would have cost me to contact Home Depot was not worth the effort. November 5, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bright light These are relatively good lights. They give a natural bright lighting effect. I down rated them because they don't last long. Forget about the 7 year claim, not even close. I get maybe a year and that's having them on for less than three hours a day. I don't know that the other brands are any better, but some are way more expensive. January 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good, but not instant on as another reviewer said, these are not instant on. They do fire up a lot quicker than past generation CFL bulbs. I'd say 30 seconds or so for full brightness. Quality seems good. The size is true BR40 unlike what another review states. October 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theselamps provided best color rendition and life. Tracking Of Shipment Was Inaccurate...UPS Showed That HasNot ShippedUntil Day It Delivered. December 31, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Back for more I just picked up my 2nd box of these bulbs. My first box was purchased 10 years and 2 months ago. I remodeled my kitchen 10 years ago and put in 6 of these bulbs. All but two had burned out within the first 10 years but the last 2 seem to be going strong. I've replaced them with a variety of Philips, GE, etc. All the brands are comparable and I haven't had better luck with any of them. I bought another contractor pack of these simply because they were the best price. Honestly, it's a freaking light bulb. It aint cooking my dinner or driving my car. All of these bulbs are consistent in their brightness. I got 3-4 years out of most of them. I should have prefaced this with there are six bulbs in a small kitchen about 3 feet apart with a dimmer switch and they are on more often than not. So, yeah. I'd buy these again. I got what I paid for. ...and as for the warming up of the bulbs, try halogens and then you'll never complain about these. January 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not instant on; weird shape These bulbs are NOT instant on, as was advertised in the product description. Also, I have standard size can lights, but these bulbs for some reason extend a good below the rim on the can. Not sure why; they should be a standard BR40, which should fit a regular can light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service I am disabled and walking is difficult. My wife dislikes hardware shopping. Having the product at the counter for her to pick up is a great help. February 27, 2014
