Answer: 
Normally PL-C lamps are just pulled out of the socket. They need to be grabbed from the plastic base
and then pulled hard.
There may be a few sockets that are twist and lock

This CFL bulb is the only bulb that is disclosed as "non-integrated" in its title
What exactly does this mean?
All of the other bulbs, regardless of wattage or base, do not identify themselves as "non-integrated"
What is the difference between a "non-integrated" bulb, and the rest?

Answer: 
Non integrated means that there is no ballast built in the lamp. These lamps will require a separate ballast to operate the lamp.

I'm increasingly thinking that the source of my problem is the ballast. But I don't have a clue where it might be located.

Answer: 
The ballast is located inside the fixture. The plug socket is connected to the ballast.
Please make sure to turn the light off at the switch, as well as at the circuit breaker.

26-Watt Soft White (2,700K) PL-C 4-Pin G24Q-3 CFL (non-integrated) Light Bulb is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, except for the lead and mercury! I use these in sconces. I had no trouble to install them, and I found that the lifetime of these bulbs was at least 4 years (used in a bathroom with 4 people in the house). I don't like that Home Depot in Montreal doesn't clearly provide a service to recycle these lead + mercury bulbs. I'm trying to find a LED alternative for this reason.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only stay on a short while - and then cutout ... I bought two of these to replace the bulbs in a kitchen fixture for my mom. She was so happy that it was fixed, However, she later told me that after the light is on for a couple of hours, the light goes out. I had also replaced the light switch on the wall that same day I replaced the bulbs so I know the switch is good. And since these bulbs contain all the electronics built into the bulb, I can only assume that these bulbs were bad right out of the box .... going to replace the entire fixture and move to an LED model ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bulb I was helped by staff to get the correct bulb and I had no trouble installing it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible-- just being honest This is a good contender for one of the worst light bulbs ever to try to install. I've slaved away a couple hours trying to install it before getting out a file and filing away the tabs (bumped plastic protrusions on either side of the middle block and spray on a PTFE lubricant to get it to slide into the light fixture. Oh, and by the way I saw the Philips "guarantee" that they will last 3 hours per day for min. of 2 years 7 days a week. Well I must just be having bad luck then because for the last 4.5 years I've been changing the 2 bulbs a min. of 1x per year-- I estimate they barely get 1.5 hours a day (being generous).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They Don't Last in Bathrooms This is type bulb I have in master bath and in wet locations they don't last. Tried replacing all three at same time and one failed after two months and other two are still burning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bulb Wanted a CFL with a little warmer glow for kitchen instead of cool white. This really makes a warm glow and the cabinets stand out.
Date published: 2011-11-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid the Entire Product Line This is one of the worst brands of CFL bulbs on the market. Warm-up time to full brightness is unusually long, while the service life is quite short, much less than the manufacturer claims. Add to that the high price tag, and avoiding the entire product line is a no-brainer. The only thing this company does well is marketing, so despite the abysmal quality, their products are widely stocked, to the point that it can be hard to find other, more acceptable brands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 26 watt soft white Need to stock in a multi pack. 7 bucks each for the bubble pack is too much. Cardboard box in a multi will make more competitive with electrical wholesale houses.
