I can never speak to the errors in product description. Most of the time I only need/use two myself. I put the open package in a good sized Baggie to,avoid dropping one. Who knows how long any incandescent bulbs will be offered for sale?

40-Watt Incandescent B10 Candelabra Base Double Life Multi-Use Decorative Light Bulb (4-Pack) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 40.

One problem I have is the light fixture has an opaque color to the shade. When you look at the specs of the packaging it claims 360 lumens ( x3 bulbs should be 1080 lumens, about a 100 watt light bulb ). The bulb is a temperature of 2500k, really warm. But when you look at Home Depot's description http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-40-Watt-Incandescent-B10-Candelabra-Base-Double-Life-Multi-Use-Decorative-Light-Bulb-4-Pack-40BC10-2LCF4-HD/202217537 it says that it is 270 lumens ( x3 bulbs should be 810 lumens, about a 60 watt bulb ). I actually am inclined to think that Home Depot's specs are more accurate. 3 of these bulbs will not comfortably light the room in this fixture. So if you do not have a clear light fixture, I'd consider a larger watt, a hotter temperature bulb or try LED. I got ok life from the bulbs so far. I mainly ranked them a 3 because of the discrepancy in the lumens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Lights The only reason I'm giving this rating is because when I went to put the lightbulbs in, 4 were broken. I would have went to Home Depot to asked for a replacement package, but it wasn't until a couple weeks after I received the shipment I realized that the bulbs were broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problem finding the right bulb..... This bulb performs as advertised. Easy to find at Home Depot and the price was less than I had thought for a specialty bulb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 3 out of 4 bulbs mailed to us were shattered I can't say much about the actual product and its quality, because we literally just started to use them on a new chandelier, but I'm very disappointed with how some arrived. 3 out of the 4 in one of our packs were completely shattered! I bought three packs, because I needed 9 bulbs, so luckily it didn't matter. It would have been nice though to have those 3 as extras when others burn out, and more importantly we shouldn't have ruined products sent to us.
