This is not equivalent to 60w's
on October 3, 2011
I purchased two of these light bulbs as a test to test try them in place of two cfl's that I use on a daily basis, I was invited to the thoguht of testing these as they use only 7 watts instead of 13 like the cfl's did. The specs are msisleading as it shows 60w comparable. It is NOT 60w comparable. It has 450 lumens compared to a standard 800 for 60w. The light output is much less from my lamp then it was originally, even though it works out because I prefer a less brighter light in that particular lamp, I did not get what I orininally thought I was paying for. I've seen real 60w led bulbs and they have 800 lumens and also use the same wattaged (13 watts) as a true 60w replacement bulb. Not cool.
