I use these in most places throughout my house, and they do save money. I have not had any break, and they last a very long time, much longer than a regular bulb. This price is very good, and less than my local "wholesale" club. Also, you are doing a little extra to help the environment. Keep in mind that this is a fluorescent bulb and so cannot be put on a dimmer (there are some CFL's that are dimmable, just not this one). I find it takes just a few seconds for the bulb to come to full power in the cold and in the house it comes up like a regular bulb. One last note, the end of the bulb is not as rounded and may not fit in some fixtures. It is not much different, but worth noting for those rare fixtures. The last two are my reason for 4 stars. I would have been happier giving it 4.5 stars, but that isn't possible.
The 2nd bulb out of the 5-pack just died, the 1st one having went out last month. I'm guessing it won't be long until all the rest stop working. It has a 5 year warranty so I'll just wait for the rest to fail before sending them back as you have to include the upc code. They brag about how much money you will save over the life of the bulb, but really, at $5 a bulb just how much are you really saving if they don't last as long as a $0.40 regular bulb?
Original review: Certainly more light per watt than regular light bulbs, but every now and then I'll hear one of them whine. Not really a big deal for say, bathroom or closet lights where you are in and out, but for a reading light you might not like it. I use them all over the house and in all four of my outside lights. I have noticed that the cold (30-40 degree temp) will delay their full brightness for the first minute or so, but if you need to leave an outside light on all night for security reasons, this is what you...
I have only used a couple so far but the very first one I mounted in a light socket literally blew up instantly when power was applied, the next two worked fine so could have been a fluke but kind of spooked with that one self-destructing so I will update this review if I have anymore issues with quality.
