Customer Reviews

60W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) Spiral A-Line CFL Light Bulb (4-Pack) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product at an exceptional price ! Bought these for 2 bathroom fixtures with 6 exposed bulbs per fixture. I was concerned about aesthetics of the exposed bulbs, but I actually prefer them to the "decorator" bulbs previously installed. At 13 watts, the bulbs appear to give off more light than the 60 watt bulbs they replaced. When on, the bulbs are so bright that the spirals and open center are nearly invisible. Instead, the bulbs appear to be a full circle and are definitely as aesthetically appealing as the previous bulbs. If they save the energy they are expected to, these bulbs can't be beat for the sale price that Home Depot had them available for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from underwhelming Have been buying spiral bulbs for several years now. While selection and variety have improved, longevity has not. They never seem to reach the 12,000 hour range. I have started dating the base when installing, and seem to get about half that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good buy These bulbs are relatively small in size which work very well in the new light fixture I purchased. They are instant on, bright and the color is like incandescents. The 4-pack was a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lighting features This product has lowered my electric bill. I like the light it gives off. I had to get use to the lack of reflection it gave off. I also like that they have made them smaller, so that now I can replace my ceiling light covers and they go in my ceiling fans nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy Saving Bulbs I have replaced most of my home lighting with CFL Energy Saver bulbs and when I was looking for replacement bulbs for some of my large light up Christmas decorations I thought I would give those bulbs a try in them too. Worked great!! They were brighter and more electricity efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "New Smaller Size" was the major selling point - and bright to boot! These are great for use in tight-fitting light fixtures. My application is outdoor lighting - standard two-tier pagoda lanterns, spaced 19 feet apart along a driveway. These 13W, T2 CFLs were purchased as a substitute for 60W, A15 incandescent lamps. Due to the fixture's short height and limited clearance inside its globe, most 13W CFLs would not fit (the same applies to LED bulbs). I did not want to continue using inefficient 60W incandescent bulbs (which are being phased out). These new "MiniTwister" CFLs fit, with room to spare. They appear to be brighter than anticipated (considering that they are rated as direct replacements for the 60W bulbs). In fact, they have more "punch" than I expected when set against the dark background of night (they are being used in fixtures with clear glass globes - frosted globes would likely reduce the output and produce a softer, more diffuse light). Color rendering and light quality are as expected for a CFL with a 82 CRI rating and a 2700*K "soft white" color temp. (just ever-so-slightly "whiter" than a comparable tungsten bulb). For outdoor use, I was hoping for a 3000*K "bright white" version, which more resembles natural sunlight (similar to a halogen lamp). For my application, I am considering switching over to Phlips 9W CFLs (40W equivalent) - also available in a smaller size like these, with a more subdued output (500 vs. 840 lm) and even lower energy consumption. The Home Depot also sells a similar "MiniTwister" 13W bulb in a four-count blister pack (Philips # 821236, rated 900 lm) in stores for the same price, but they are not listed on this site. A great value if you can find them. Same situation with the 9W version as well. (Store #1267 - Farmingdale, NY)
