I used to get several years from an incandescent bulb. I purchased this bulb in April 2014. The package indicates a 7 year life. I didn't get a full year from this bulb. Both bulbs in the 2 bulb package have failed. Now I have to spend an additional sum 10 times the price of incandescent bulbs and have to hold them until I can properly dispose of them because of the mercury content.

I've purchased CFL bulbs in the past, when they first came on the market, I was not pleased with their performance. The new bulbs appear to come on faster and they look much better in the cieling fan. Too soon to know how well to bulbs will perform over the long run.

I should have read the reviews first, but who does that when buying a simple light bulb?
As advertised, instant on, but then it dims after about 30 seconds.
Very annoying. Guest always ask what's wrong with my houses wiring -
I always considered GE a good brand, I even own stock in the company.
Now I'm switching -

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VicofGeorgia There is definitely a defect with these bulbs.
I bought several of these bulbs to use in fixtures in my house. The first 2 I put in my front porch lights. They have worked with no issues. In my kitchen fixture they flicker constantly. In my bath light fixture, however, the bulbs stop working within a few months. I change them with new bulbs and within a few months(sometimes they don't last that long) I have to change them again.
I have contacted GE about this and all they do is send me coupons to get new bulbs. I am positive they know there is a problem with the bulbs but for some reason they don't seem to feel the need to correct it. The first time I requested a replacement I had to send the UPC from the box in order to get them replaced. The last time it was just an online fill in form that required no proof whatsoever that I had ever bought bulbs. Anyone could fill it out and get a coupon. If they didn't know there was a problem they would not be handing out coupons with a simple email request. You fill out a form and they send the coupons. Don't have to prove you even bought any bulbs.
Going to drop all 20+ GE bulbs in the recycle bin at Home Depot and buy a few Cree LED's today. Problem solved!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by runforfun7 Nice bright blub
I like the halogen bulb in the middle that lights up to give it an instant bright. After about 1 minute the halogen bulb turns off and it darkens a little until the CFL gets up to full temperature. It is a bit odd when you have 3 and have them all get a little less bright. I still like the instant brightness though. The bulb also is great for a fixture where you can see the bulb given that it is all enclosed much like a regular incandescent bulb. Not sure how long they will hold up, but so far so good.
