I bought 6 of these from Amazon and then 12 more direct from the distributers website. Two bulbs arrived broken, no big deal I thought. However, within a week, a few of the bulbs burnt out. Within a month, 5 more of the bulbs burnt out. Now, 3 months after I bought the bulbs, only 4 of the 18 bulbs I bought are still operational. These bulbs have the name Square Perfect, 30W 5500K on the base. These should be off the market. DO NOT BUY THESE TAPERED BULBS (I have had No problems with ALZO bulbs I replaced these with).

Usually a new light bulb is not a big deal. This type was recommended by my doctor as a possible aid to increase light exposure during winter. I like its brightness, too. Makes sewing even easier! Great product.

Pros: As advertised. Very well packaged. Bright white, not yellow, light. Fits a regular-sized light bulb receptacle (no special lamp required). No Cons found as yet... Recommended to a friend already.

These bulbs came in a lighting kit, that I got for Christmas (2 months ago)... I've used them for a total of approximately 10 hrs. One has already burnt out !! I will NOT be buying these again, ridiculous.. 10 hours of burn time.

NO, I would not recommend these to a friend (or stranger)

Pros - was nice light.. while it lasted
Cons - 10 hours of burn time.... maybe 10 hours!

The other bulb that this one arrived with arrived completely smashed. I was pleased that this one survived and I enjoyed it very much. It was great for photography and room lighting. However, one month later it simply stopped turning on. The lamp still tests good, the bulb is just dead. Perhaps its life got reduced during shipping, but that it still the seller's fault as both bulbs were inadequately packaged.

If you get one that lasts, it would make a good buy, but I'll never purchase another lightbulb online again. I buy 95% of my dry goods online, but this category apparently is not suited to it.

03.01.13 Edit:
Thanks to some feedback that was left about the bulb, I gave the bulb another chance to see if it would come on. It does. I had tried it several times before when it quit working, but I didn't leave the electricity on and being unplugged seems to have done it good. The light is great when it works, but I certainly wouldn't use it as a bulb that you 100% relied on.

It's not worth the time to return this, but I have received two of these in two different shipments that were broken in the package. it was well packaged, so it had to have been broken at the factory or at the time of original packaging in the Styrofoam. Someone somewhere knew this was broken before it ever left the plant. And to receive two different ones several weeks apart and both broken, I have to say that this must be a common occurrence.

Bought these for my 1950's surgery lamp (minus the heat shield). The lamp I have in my garage is used to light up my bench tools. I found that a 150 watt lamp would scorch and begin smoking wood 3 feet away. Even a 75 watt was to warm to stand in front of. This lamp is ideal for large reflectors because little heat is transferred and it covers a large area. Because of it's design I would not use this bulb in areas of vibration. It looks like a large mushroom with 2 small stalks. Perfect for my needs.

I replaced a "full spectrum" lightbulb with this one and they are not even comparable. The other one is not what it was advertised as. This one gives off beautiful cool light with true colors. I do beadwork and knit and it's amazing the change that this light has made.

Though the first bulb arrived broken, they replaced with a second one which was intact. Provides a perfect color-correct light for photography.

Perfect bulb shape and output for a continuous studio light. Helps spread the light out. Daytime balanced. Bright enough for basic jobs.
