Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SusanVT Easily replaces incandescent in dimmable fixture
I have dimmable fixtures because there are times when I want bright light (to see what I'm cleaning) and when I want dim light (ambiance). So many new bulbs today are differently shaped than the incandescents our fixtures intended to use. This light bulb fits and promises better economy than an incandescent. It works just as well going from bright to dim. I don't hear any humming when it's on dim. So I give these bulbs a thumbs up!

These are a good option for dimmable incandescent bulbs while still getting some energy efficiency. I would recommend these in enclosed fixtures or lamp shades, as when the bulb is exposed, you can see that its different from a regular incandescent. The bulb has some sort of coating on the inside or something, or maybe it is made differently. It is hard to explain and the photo didn't come out well. Otherwise, it shines as bright as a soft white 60w.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia A Nice Alternative to reduce energy and save some money
I used these to replace my regular 60w bulbs in my bathroom sconce. I couldn't see any difference in color or brightness. You don't save a ton of energy or money with these. But every little bit helps and adds up. With these you'll be saving roughly 28% in energy usage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beau4u What for watt !
Well 60 watts for 43 watts is not earth shattering but I had 4-led type bulbs in a bathroom (4-globe fixture) on a dimmer switch, it was not bright enough and the light was to blue. Still trying to be conservative I put 1 in the far left and 1 in the far right and left the 2 LEDs in center . The lighting is a lot better and I actually use the dimmer to lower the light some time. Probably will switch out 2-LEDs and use 4- 43 for 60watt. The second best thing to being able to see is ( this is a small bathroom) They Don't Get Hot. Finally! When your standing under four lights full blow so you can see , you don't have to worry about Sweating to death or 3rd degree burns.

I typically only use 100w light bulbs, but figured I would give this a try. the 60w bulb gives off enough light to be used by anyone who is used to 100w; you will notice a slight difference, but not enough to off set the energy savings.

So far, so good with these bulbs. I had a few blow out several weeks back and thought this would be a nice fit. And it has been thus far. The manufacturer of these eco-friendly bulbs have finally got the lower wattages to be equivalent to the traditional bulbs. I like it. I have not used this bulb however in a dimmable device.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ObjectiveReviewer Great replacement dimmer bulbs
We had a light go out on our dining room chandelier, so I got this set of bulbs to replace it. The chandelier is dim-able, so this seemed to be a good replacement. The product is very nice and blends well with the other bulbs. It is not really noticeable that one of the bulbs is newer than the others. I think I will use these bulbs for when the rest of the bulbs on my chandelier burns out.
The only negative I can find is the packaging of the bulbs. It comes in a set of 4, and the packaging is very flimsy. When I received it in the mail and took the light bulb package out of the box, one of the bulbs fell out due to the flimsy nature of the product package. Fortunately, the bulb fell into the shipping box, so nothing was broken. Just be careful when handling this product.

This is a testament to not reading! I was thinking I had ordered dimmable CFL bulbs. Duh! I think it was the "Mercury Free" label that threw me. These are energy saving incandescent bulbs, which never had mercury in them anyway. They appear to have something like a quartz bulb inside the outer bulb. I decided to give them a try.
I put two into my bedroom lamps, which are on dimmers, and the first thing I noticed when I turned them on was the harshness of the light. It reminded me of clear bulbs with shadows of the filament supports and anything else that got in the way. After dimming them some, the one in a traditional shaded lamp became more acceptable, whereas the one in a torchiere type lamp remained harsher than I liked. I guess it all depends on the application.
