Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great had to sand down nubs in order to fit Verilux desktop lamp. Okay my verilux desk lamp bulb failed and need a replacement. Their bulb was like 4-5 times the cost and the difference to this bulb was the "rated" light spectrum and the diffrent shape of nubs at the end of the bulb that would keep them from clicking in place. Since these were just plastic molded nubs on the base, just took dremel and sanded them down a bit. It fits perfect now. Light wise I can't tell the difference but fine for my reading purpose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a "legacy" bulb, no longer used in new lamps The good part about a 10,000 hour light bulb is that you only need to change it every 10 years or so. The bad part is that by the time you need to replace it, technology has marched forward and the bulb is no longer used by new lamps and it's no longer in stock. Thank goodness I could web order it. That said, the bulb is inexpensive as high-intensity CF bulbs go, it snaps right in, and it works fine. Now I can forget it for another 10 years then replace it with a cold fusion quantum luminance orb, or whatever the current porch lamp tech is in 2024. January 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sadly, this 27 Watt flourescent bulb DID NOT WORK when I received it, I am returning it. This product arrived in poor shape to begin with, should have been the first clue, however, ever the hopeful soul...tried it a week later when the lamp was available.. It did not work. Replaced it with a bulb from Walmart and worked, at much less cost. I will return the original bulb to a Home Depot . April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 27-Watt Fluorescent Tube Light Bulb I honestly can't remember when I replaced the bulb before this one I just bought. It literally last for years. A bulb can't get any better than that. I plan to get another lamp with the same bulb. It's fantastic for after dark sewing by machine or by hand. April 8, 2015
