Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by msinykin Looks and works like an standard 100 W bulb
On the outside, looks like a (no longer produced) 100W standard incandescent bulb, and has similar output (lumens). Inside the outer bulb is a 72W halogen bulb.
Light is a bit less yellow (3000K vs. 2800K), which I prefer.
Life is rated at 1000 hours, the same as a regular incandescents, but shorter than less efficient halogens.
A good choice if you want a bulb that acts almost exactly like a 100W incandescent -- instant on, dimmable, best color rendering (CRI 100), low price -- but meets energy standards.
Consider CFL or LED for more energy savings or longer life, but these have their own pros and cons.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tahhh Give a warm light
I was greatly impressed that these bulbs are a warm white for living room ambiance. And that they are dimmable. Price is far better than those spiral bulbs that G.E. is championing and are ecological terrors if you should break one. A dimmable 100 w. bulb gives both mood lighting and reading lighting without the pain of a 3 way bulb that always burns out prematurely. Even tho my sockets are 3-way, this bulb fits up and obviates the need for those unreliable and horribly expensive 3-ways.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by colliemom It's a new fangled light bulb - nothing special - nothing bad to say either.
Was almost impossible to decipher what light to purchase for new vent fan. Was assisted, with excellence, by store employee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by newport80 good light for your home
I recommend these bulbs over the more readily available 60 watt bulbs. They give you more lumens and are still energy efficient

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birdman Best ligh of all the bulbs.
Instant on with the ideal frequency of white light out of all the bulbs available. Better light than LED and better by far than the toxic, mercury containers known as CFLs. These bulbs will be illegal on January 1, 2015 so stock up now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaytonJohn Excellent quality/color is accurate.
I needed a bright bulb that would work with a dimmer but didn't want to spend $18 which is what an LED would have cost. The light seems to be of excellent quality and the light color is accurate and warm.
