To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These don't fit since the base tab are centered on these. My Panasonic bath vent/light takes the 18 watt or more version where the tabs are offset. I got these cheap CFLs to fit by removing the tabs with my Dremel. Would have given these higher ratings except for the fact that after less than two weeks' use these cheap CFLs were already flickering. As cheap as these are, I'd rather pay more next time for Sylvania bulbs at least I can get more life out of them.
I've bought many CFL bulbs in my life. These are rated as Color Rendering Index 82, which isn't a very high number, but I think they might be even lower than that compared to other bulbs I've bought. The light they give off is seafoam green, like the worst kind of subway corridor lighting you'd see in a '70s industrial era Soviet film. Do not use these anywhere there are people or food you want to enjoy the sight of.
Exact fit for our light fixture. Existing bulbs were near end of their service life--would take a minute or two to go from dull glow to full brightness. Ordered these bulbs that arrived ahead of scheduled delivery date, popped them in in less than a minute and, voila, instant bright light at the flip of a switch. Ordered the four pack so that I have a standby replacement set to use in a year or so. Great value, very satisfied!
I had not seen this bulb before (closet dome light that came with the house) and certainly don't have any on hand. I priced in comparison to local and big box stores and this price won. I have lived with the previous bulb for at least 6 years so as far as longevity goes, it'll likely be quite awhile before I know for sure, so far so good!
My light bulb burned out after a few years, and these bulbs showed up as a suitable alternative on a search. I ordered them because the dimensions were correct, and a photo on the site matched the base of our burned out bulb. Got these in the mail very quickly, and it fir into the socket just right and the light is good.
Previous lights (all 4) in our bedroom lasted at least the 3+ years we’ve lived in this house. They started going out, so I replaced them all with these four months ago. Now, already, one is dead. I wanted to replace them all with LEDs, but too hard to remove or bypass the ballasts. Even so, I wish I had done it!
I bought these because I couldn’t find an LED solution for my bathroom ceiling fans. These are super bright white and match the other LED daylight strength lights that I have in my bathroom. They’ve been in use for a week so far. I don’t have any complaints if I had any it would be that I could buy them individually or in a three pack as I only needed three not four of them and for the thousands of hours that they have on them it will hopefully be a long time before I’ll ever get to use the extra one. :)
When my bathroom light went out, I was surprised to see this kind of bulb in the fixture. I was even more surprised when I couldn't find a replacement locally. Amazon to the rescue! I ordered these and they arrived fast and in perfect condition, no broken bulbs. They fit and are working well. Best of all, I now have a surplus for when the light eventually goes out again.
