Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FinallyGreenandSensible 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by chrisg 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.

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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by gprent101 Lots of light for 60 watt equivalent
These bulbs put out a lot of light for 60 watt equivalent. I think brighter then a 60 watt incandescent. For my application a 40 watt equivalent might be better.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by gjenks Terrible!
I have purchased Phillips as well as other brands of these bulbs. They advertise up to 11 years and 12,000 hours of use. I have not had a single bulb last even 2 years in infrequently used fixtures. With the price of these bulbs, you should be able to expect much more. Of course most (if not all) are made in China or Mexico. I won't buy any more of these until I'm forced to by the discontinuation of incandescent bulbs.
