Customer Reviews

85W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) R40 Dimmable CFL Flood Light Bulb (E*) is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The bulb makes noise The bulb is nice and puts off good light. Unless I got a bad bulb, these bulbs are no good when they go to be dimmed. They make a humming sound and I only had one of my twelve lights in, I can only imaging the sound when all twelve are installed. The noise only happens when I go to dim the bulb. I am returning it, very unhappy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted 624 days I write in Sharpie the install date of these CFL floods as I have a room that takes six of these. This one died less than two years old , about 2 cents/day; and of course I don't keep all old HD receipts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I have 3 flood lights above my kitchen table. I did change to CFLs, but they were too hot and I was unable to use the dimmer that was previously installed. I installed the dimmable lights and am so happy. I can now dim the lights to my needs, bright or dim. I am also happy to be saving even more money by being able to dim the lights.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stay way They are slow to come on, they flicker when dimm'ed - stay away - Seems like Home Depot is selling more junk these days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 7 year of light in 33 days I purchased this on June 26 for a kitchen fixture that has a dimmable switch. The packaging said it would last 7 years. On July 29 it died. Checked it in a known good socket. Definitely dead. Hopefully HD does not give me a hassle on returning it since it is over 30 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Just what I needed. A simple no frills bright light.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Functional but longevity not there I have 6 can lights in my kitchen. I have these in all of them. I get maybe 6-9 months, per bulb, before they burn out. The life expectancy is 7.3 yrs. based on 3 hrs. / day. We use them probably 5-6 hrs. / day, which translates to ~ 3.5 yrs. I'm no where near that number. I continue to buy them only because it is difficult to find a dimmable CFL. I think I need to look harder for a better replacement.
