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.
My wife and I swapped all our bulbs out with 60 W "daylight" bulbs that we purchased locally. Our ceiling fan bulbs are all of the mini-twist lock variety. Finding this type of bulb, in "daylight" color, locally proved to be impossible. I was reluctant to buy bulbs on Amazon because, well, there was a high probability that they'd break in transit. Two of the 4 bulbs did indeed break in transit. But that's not why I'm only rating these 2 stars...Amazon refunded me the difference for the broken bulbs.
I'm giving these 2 stars because compared to the 60 W bulbs we bought locally, these are extremely dim. They are absolutely NOT 60 W equivalent. They are MAYBE 40 W equivalent, but they are 100% NOT 60 W equivalent. The only reason I'm not giving these bulbs 1 star is because they work just fine, and are daylight color as indicated.
Again...based on their brightness these bulbs are NOT 60 W equivalent. Be mindful of this when buying.
Changing my original review after using for about a month. Bought a pack of 4 in December - it's now January - and I've replaced 2 already. One of my 2 outdoor lights is still burning but two bulbs placed in the other light burned out after about 2 weeks of usage each.......they flicker and then go dead......now I gotta look elsewhere after having high hopes these would work well. This is the 2nd manufacturer's CFL lights I've had problems with. AARGH !!
Not many manufacturers make this product but these are better than most. Just installed the replacement bulb a week ago and it's working but flickers slightly. Getting better though - the flickering is almost gone and seems to rectify itself the longer the bulb is on - it's installed in an outside dawn-to-dusk wall sconce. I think it'll be OK the longer it's used. Past purchases of this particular bulb didn't do that which is why I use this product VS others - others failed very quickly. The product was delivered quickly and was packaged well. Overall I'm quite satisfied.
This is an honest review. Eventhough two of the light bulbs did get some defects maybe from handling and delivery, the other 2 light bulbs works great, really bright, save more money in your pocket comparing to a traditional light bulb.
these bulbs are not fitting properly in my light fixture. I have tried 3 of them and they will fit in place and as soon as i am back down off the ladder they go out and i get back up there and touch them and they work for a few minutes until i am back down the ladder. the fit just is not correct!!!!!!
Wouldn't actually know anything about the quality of this because that uses a super unusual plug that I don't own. Unless you need it this super unique plug Style just go buy them in the store so they don't come to you broken and sounding like a thing of maracas.
First of all this product I was unable to find in Okla.City. It creates a soft light when turned on and within a few moments it illuminates nicely. Works very well, good price and I would recommend it.
These bulbs are incredibly hard to find in retail stores. I’m glad I found them here because they really brighten up my hallway compared to the less than stellar ones that were previously installed. Great lighting.
We got a beautiful light fixture 2 years ago and weren't able to find replacement bulbs locally. These bulbs came wrapped up securely and are exactly what I wanted, for a better price than I had anticipated. I was able to chose a neutral white to replace the bright bulbs the fixture came with. I'm very satisfied!
