Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice value For the wattage, this light provides excellent illumination. The life span is deceptive. I previously purchased this light and was able to get a 2 year lifespan--not the 11.3 years promised on the package. However, the lifespan is based on 3 hour per day usage (and who uses a light for only 3 hours). I estimate that I use this light from 9 to 12 hours as I have it in a dusk to dawn fixture. So, I believe that if I crunch the numbers, I have the equivalent of 11 year life span. WARNING: Don't buy this bulb in the store--It sells for considerable less online and you can have it shipped to the store for free. February 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good price for this non-standard bulb It's a light provides light. The question will be how long it lasts. For the future I believe I will buy the adapter that allows you to use a standard base bulb so I can find replacement bulbs locally instead of having to order them on-line. December 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eliminates the Ballast! Plug it in and it works! Because the ballast is built in to the base of this CFL it eliminates the need for a ballast. Ballasts are 2X to 3X the price of a CFL, so this appears to be a case in which product evolution results in cost reduction---a good thing. (Note that this survey was sent just a few weeks after the purchase so I don't really know how long the product will last in use every evening for 8-12 hours.) February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good GU24 bulb Good soft white color to match existing. Will see how long they last. I hope Philips lasts longer than the brand that came with the light. Other brand died within one year. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by much cheaper than in the store These bulbs are $6-$7 in the store and a almost half price online February 17, 2015
