Personally, I prefer warmer bulbs for most applications, so these bulbs are noticeably cooler than the other (2700K - 3500K) lights in our house. There is slightly less light output toward the base of the bulb, but otherwise the side/front output is very even.
These 5000K cool white bulbs are slightly more efficient than TCP's 2700K bulbs, using 8.7w to produce 900 cool white lumens as compared to 9.8w to produce 800 warm white lumens. If you are lighting a kitchen, utility/laundry room, play room, garage, or similar area then these are great bulbs to produce a lot of cool light very efficiently.
Note that these are at the high end of light output for a 60w equivalent bulb, and I would actually say they are brighter than Philips 75w equivalent CFLs (rated as 1800 lumen).
I'll also add that I dropped one of these bulbs from a height of about 6' onto a hardwood floor, and not only did the bulb not shatter, but it still seems to work after the drop without any issues. Pleasant surprise!

Anything worth buying is worth researching, and if you don't know about light bulbs then here is a quick run down.
Color: Ranging from 2700k (soft white) to 6000k (bright white). These are 5000k, which come off as day light. Brighter tends to use less energy for some reason.
Wattage: One of the lowest wattage per lumens bulbs I could find, especially for the price. These run only a measly 8.5W to put out the light of a 60-70W bulb.
Lumens (brightness): Really bright in dark areas, night, etc. Almost too bright at times. They run around 900 lumens.
From what I've felt after running these bulbs they don't get hot either, so you can use them in outdoor enclosures (protected from direct weather), and indoor ones as well. LED Are the best bulbs to buy and even at 9-10$/bulb you'd probably break even over a lot of CFLs. These are a low 4$/bulb!

If you want bright and save money as far as how much electricity you use and you have family members who like lights on everywhere at home then this is the bulb for you. they are bright use a minimal amount of electricity. They last for years and are cheap to operate.

Take a look at the image of these next to my CFLs. They leave a bluish light that takes some getting used to. Not something you want to mix and match with other types of bulbs so a 6 pack is a good choice.
Having used CFLs for so many years I forgot how bright 60 watts is. They are quite bright.
They look very much like the old fashioned incandescent and feel well made.
Can be used in totally enclosed receptable.
If you use these in areas recommended by the Home Depot "How to choose a light bulb" section you should be satisfied.

The bulbs arrived in a perfectly packed box. The bulbs are really bright. I was thinking I need to use all the 6 bulbs for my living room (which is big) but just 3 did the magic.

I bought about two dozen of these bulbs to change from CFL bulbs. I love them. The "daylight" bulbs are so crisp and clean as well as efficient. I did order another six. I plan on using these in every fixture in my home! ,I passed my CFL bulbs on to my dad that still had incandescent bulbs. I almost forgot I have broken plenty of bulbs in my basement fixtures which have no covers. Just simple fixtures. With these bulbs being plastic I don't think I have to worry about carrying the ladders or big pieces of pipe or wood and hitting the bulbs like I did with incandescent or CFL bulbs

These lights are very bright and come on instantly. I couldn't be happier at the price.
