One of the bulbs started malfunctioning a few days after the return window closed (which is about 30 days after shipment). Issues range from overall low(er)/dimmed output to output power fluctuations with constant flickering. The other bulb works pretty well (at least output-wise), but slightly flickers from time to time. I tested the lamps I was using these GE bulbs in with previously purchased bulbs (also CFLs) and both lamps work fine. When I logged on to Amazon to inquire about returning at least one of the bulbs I was met with "This item is no longer eligible for return."
. . . But despite mfg's representations (or lack of same), these bulbs DO require a brief warm-up time to reach full illumination -- it's only 20-30 seconds, but if you need truly "instant-on," these are not for you.
These bulbs are short enough to fit in my ceiling light with the chandelier on. Two bulbs put out enough light for my room and I have no complaints about them.
