Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 died after 2 weeks After 1 week one bulb started to flicker. It is now dead. The other one is now starting to flicker after 2 weeks. Am going to try to write the company but of course I didn't save my receipt. March 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by darn good lite bulb Good lite bulb with good color and as bright as claimed. 5star rating from me,good value so far check back in 2-3years! March 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value for a Name Brand! The 23w CFL's worked perfect out of the package and are still working great after 2 weeks. There is a slight warm up after the temp drops below 50 degrees in the garage, which was expected. The only downside was that the color temperature wasn't consistent. Some of the bulbs look a lot cooler in color. Say 3100k and some look as the package noted, 2700k. I thought that I was just being picky, but my wife noticed the difference too. I didn't expect this from a name brand like Philips, which is why i gave it 4 stars. November 6, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product This brand of CFL has superior features - quick start-up, good color balance, compact size, no noise. Most importantly they seem to be more reliable than some others which, although marginally cheaper, seem prone to sudden failure after considerably less than the rated service life. July 31, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bought 4 pack two work and two are dead on arrival. The two that work work well . light fast and effectively. Since I purchased I while ago my guess is that the will not be returned. January 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for saving money Great product for the money. Does not work as well in inverted lamps. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very compact energy-saving bulb providing 100 watts. Some lamp fixtures require compact bulbs and have a limit on maximum wattage. These fluorescent bulbs provide 100 watts of light with only 23 watts of power. November 17, 2011
