Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by daddyomz Lotsa light cheap!
These are the first non-standard candelabra bulbs I have found to fit this particularly crazy hanging lamp my wife loves. no cfls or other leds fit this unit before. They are so bright I use one setting or the other (about half of the six installed) at a time, all six are practically daylight! They dim nicely on my other fixture as well. I'll be watching for another sale on these!

These are super bright and more a giant Christmas light bulb than a traditional light bulb. It is an excellent option for lighting where you do not see the actual bulb. Otherwise about half the bulb is solid plastic. I decided to put mine on the front porch, where I replaced 4 traditional incandescent candelabra bulbs. I keep my porch light on from sundown to sunup, so I know I'm burning a lot of kilowatts doing this. I'm hoping these will reduce my energy consumption, but still keep my porch lit up at night. This spectrum (5000K) is a little too bright for me. It is the brightest spectrum this brand makes. At this brightness the bulb is more glaring than it is illuminating. This is OK for now, I'll probably get the soft bulbs eventually. I'm hoping these bulbs are so blinding that any possible intruder would be deterred just by it's sheer police like luminosity. I am happy with it. Because it's more of a bright haze, it doesn't bleed in through the blinds as much as the incandescent bulbs do. I like that they are dimmable, but don't have dimmer switches yet. They do get pretty warm, but not so hot that you can't touch them like the incandescents did with 5 minutes. These would also be easy to connect to a separate solar power set up. Since LEDs use so little energy, they are perfect for people using renewable energy. I'm considering taking my porch lights off the grid and running them off a simple solar/battery set up. Just one of the options now available thanks to LED technology. At the very least, I should see some saving on my energy bill. As far as color temperatures go, it's a matter of personal preference. I personally find that a warm glow is more inviting than the cold brightness of the 5000K spectrum. But since I don't spend much time on my porch, I'm not really concerned. I'll take the savings.

These fit great in my dining room lamp. They don't give off heat like regular bulbs do, so now I can finally eat dinner in the light. They dim fairly well (not as well as a regular bulb, but still pretty well.) I'm not sure if it's my lamp or the bulbs, but my lamp will randomly blink. It's probably the lamp, but thought it was worth mentioning in case anyone else notices it. Also not sure if it's a side effect of dimming the lights. I still highly recommend these bulbs. Save money overall, no heat, just right. I've had them a couple months now and so far so good.

I have been using the lights for about two weeks and they are working great. Not to bright, like the other candleabra lights. These lights are supposed last 22 years. Awesome. I hope it's true because the other lights only lasted for about a month. Was getting expensive and I was bummed out. I started thinking that I made a mistake buying my light fixtures. I think these lights are going to be the ones I need.

The sale price sold me on this 6 pack. I wasn't going to drop $7-$15 for one. I have 25 total that uses candelabra bases (10 are the round globes for a floor lamp).
These day lights are installed in a horizontal 5 bulb floor lamp and a vertical 9 bulb chandelier. The chandelier brightens up a large room with high ceilings. It is 25w but was enough to light up that large space.
The lamp holder for the floor lamp is a half sphere with the opening facing down. The light is still bright to light up a small 18x18 room.
The daylight just gives a clean clear feeling. I'm purchasing one or two more before the sale is over.
These lights are used often so we will see how long they will last.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BTT Not good for my situation.
The bulbs are very bright even when dimmed. I was using them in four wall scones and the look was not astetically pleasing. The white cuff at the bottom just stands out and the look is not good. I had been using 25 watt incandescent with frosting and the bent pointed top. They dimmed well and don't look obtrusive as these do. These may work well in a chandelier that is used on a high (very high) ceiling.
