Rated 5 out of 5Â by Frank works as advertised
I bought a two pack of the 20 watt bright from the start bulbs out of curiosity (75 watt equivalents). I was hesitant to replace my incandescent bulbs which give instant brightness in rooms where lights are turned on and off daily and for short periods. The gradual brightening of the CFLs was annoying. By replacing 2 incandescent bulbs in a bathroom that has 2 3-bulb fixtures, I was able to compare this bulb to the incandescents side by side. The GE bulbs worked great with the halogen component giving instant light while the fluorescent component warmed up. I honestly cannot tell the difference between both bulb types and the light color and warmth were remarkably similar. I am now no longer hesitant to replace my other incandescents with these fluorescent hybrids.

Could barely tell the difference between this CFL bulb and a standard 60 watt bulb. The GE bulb turned on immediately in full brightness unlike other CFLs that need to heat up to be full bright. Just make sure any dimmers or sophisticated switches are CFL compatible.

I returned the bulbs the next day. Should've done my homework first

This is a fabulous CFL! It fires up immediately - NO delay! The light is a pleasant yellow just like traditional incandescent bulbs. In fact, I switched out the bulbs in our kitchen, and my wife did not even notice! The price is very good - $10 for 2 bulbs. I highly recommend this bulb.

I purchased 4 of these bulbs for a bathroom vanity light bar less than 2 years ago and so far 3 out of the 4 bulbs have failed. I don't know how much of a hassle trying to collect on the warranty would be, but I will be keeping all light bulb receipts and packaging from now on.
