Answer: 
The package may be 7.4 inches tall, the product is not. The Phillips web site (http://www.usa.philips.com/c-p/046677405854/energy-saver-twister/specifications) says the bulb is 4 inches tall by 2 inches wide and this matches my recollection.

Answer: 
The complete unit is about 7 1/2 inches long, including the screw-in base. The CFL will fit in a fixture that takes a conventional bulb. The Dusk to Dawn is slightly larger, but more compact than using a screw-in photosensor and then adding an incandescent, CFL or LED bulb.

Answer: 
Hello needhelp14,
The base of the light rotates to allow you to easily position the sensor. When I say the base I mean the actual silver base of the bulb can rotate independently of the sensor base. I've included a link showing the portion I'm speaking of. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

It is the same size as a regular bulb (for an average lamp or fixture). It is only perhaps a little bit taller than usual, due to the sensor. We used it in an outdoor lamp, and it fit fine.

Hi Fred,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
An A-19 light bulb is a "standard" sized 60 watt light bulb. That A-19 bulb measures 2.375 inches across its globe.
This Spiral CFL Light Bulb measures 2.05 inches across, which is smaller than a regular bulb.
This happens to be one of the most compact 60 watt equivalent spiral bulbs that has been developed, so far.
Thank you for Read More

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 183 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great energy saver This light bulb goes on automatically at dusk and shuts off at dawn. It costs under $2 to run per year and is well worth the initial price to have a light on when we come home in the dark. It also gives us peace of mind to have one or more exterior lights on all night. Also, the manufacturer claims it lasts approximately 7 years. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of junk! I bought one of these for my front porch. The light was coming on 2-3 hours before dark. I know it doesn't use much energy but I don't like lights on in the daytime. I thought I would just turn it on after dark and let it go out by itself in the morning. Turning it on after dark just made it blink on and off continuously. I am not sure why it kept blinking instead of staying on in the dark but I replaced it with the old standard bulb. Typical lack of quality in new products. NOT for me! August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As advertised Works great for my driveway lighting. Come on at dusk, off when I get up. Nice security lighting. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Depo Purchases This light bulb works great, it lights up in the evening and turns itself off in the morning. No need to install a sensor outdoor light fixture. It's also long lasting. July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 60 Watt soft white spiraldusk to dawn CFL light bulb Great light bulb. I have used these for approximately 10 years, and have only had one burn out. I'm sure it was because I had installed in an enclosed outdoor globe. Since installing new fixture with an open bottom, it works better. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great lightbulb for lighting your porch I placed this bulb in a recessed fixture to light my front porch. I leave the porch light on at all times, so this bulb is wonderful because it automatically shuts off during daylight hours and comes back on when it gets dark. I initially hesitated because of the price, but if it lasts as long as it should, it is ultimately worth it. July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work great and met my needs Work just like they're supposed to - on at dusk and off at dawn. Just need to make certain the eye or sensor is facing out. They fit into my existing outdoor light fixtures. Very easy to install. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Outdoor Lightbulb Ever Works exactly as advertised. We have had them about a month now and every day they turn off and every night they turn on. It is like having a timer for your outside lights except you don't even have to set the time. The sensor works perfectly, they turn on at an appropriate time. I am very impressed, no more leaving the light on 24/7 or remembering to turn it on and off each day. Coming home late unexpectedly? Light is on. I can't say enough about how these are worth the money. June 7, 2016
