Rated 1 out of 5Â by wolfinator Terrible mortality rate after 1 year
I bought a couple packs of these to use in a couple of fixtures around the house. Most notably to populate a bathroom vanity that my wife wanted "daylight" bulbs for, and a fixture I use a lot during the day.
One year on, and I've had a 40% mortality rate among the bulbs I purchased. One went bad after just a couple of months. I'm terribly disappointed.
I've bought a large number of EcoSmart CFLs before, all of the "soft white" variety. Never had a problem with them.
I don't know if I just got a bad batch or what, but I don't trust the quality control for these bulbs enough to try again. I would avoid these, and find a more proven brand.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JoeE A quick cheap bathroom makeover
Cool white CFLs and incandescent bulbs are fine in the bedroom, living room and dining areas, but in the bathroom you want light that helps you with your daily grooming. Screw these into the light bar above the mirror and you'll see yourself in the truest light.
These bulbs are instant-on with a short 10- to 15-second run-up to full brightness so they'll be fully warmed up by the time you step out of the shower. At first glance the human eye sees the light output as blue-tinged white but a glance in the mirror will dispel any fears of unnatural flesh-tones.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AzPurpleLady Absolutely love the true white light
I installed these light bulbs in the ceiling fan in my sewing area and what a difference!! They make all the rest of the light bulbs in this house seem yellow in comparison. When I'm going through my fabric I get true color rendition thanks to the whiteness of these bulbs. I will definitely purchase more of these.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HomeOwner Warranty is such a hassle.
I like the day light bulb. I bought these bulbs three years ago and three failed last week. Unfortunately I failed to keep the receipt of the bulb purchase which really doesn't matter since the receipt is printed on thermal paper and it goes blank after some time and the vendor will not replace the bulb with out a receipt. So if you are going to buy these bulbs for the warranty my suggestion is to scan the receipt to your computer and start a file for warranty that way you have your proof of purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mamag This product does not hold up
I used these bulbs for a short period of time and they burned out. I am not happy at all. They claim they should last however I think they are junk. Less than 30 days and we were in the dark
