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.
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!!!!!!
I have already had 2 of these fail in a multi bulb fixture where existing bulbs 2 years older than these new ones are still going strong. Not worth the money for these if you want something that lasts.
