This will be the smallest 23w CFL you will have purchased and will fit into more fixtures than another brand. It will last about 13 times longer than a standard light bulb, which can be as many as 7 years of life.Earthmate Lighting products are the premium in Compact Fluorescent technology both from a technological and an environmental standpoint.

First, I would give this bulb 5 stars if the description was correct, and will happily change my rating if that is fixed! The problem is that these are not "super mini" bulbs. Earthmate does make a 2700K super mini bulb that is 4.6" long, but the only 23W full-spectrum bulb they list, at 5" long, is this one. (The actual model number for this bulb is E2357AE on their website, which matches the individual units of the 6-pack.)

These bulbs are fairly pricey compared to the average 23 watt full-spectrum bulb, and I paid the extra money partially based on the assumption that these would be smaller.

Now, on to actually reviewing the product! The bulbs are average sized, and should fit in most lamps and fixtures; however, I did have one fixture where they were just a bit too long to fit. The brightness and coloration are excellent; they seem to put out a bit more light than other 23W full-spectrum bulbs I have. The CRI is 88; not the highest around but very good. The light is extremely close to my ALZO bulbs, which are still my favorite full-spectrum bulbs (other than the fact that they're huge and don't fit in most things!) The bulbs turn on to a fairly decent brightness and fully warm up very quickly. I've noticed zero buzzing or flickering.

Overall, I'd say these are the best 23W full-spectrum bulbs I've tried that are "normal" sized, which is the only thing that kept me from just returning the 5-pack despite the size issue. (Yes, 5-pack, since one of my bulbs was DOA. Amazon was nice enough to offer a partial refund for that bulb, which I decided was better than shipping all six bulbs back and forth.) They're also a bit expensive as noted; the price would be more in line if they were actually smaller as claimed.

These lights have exceptionally good light output. I bought the 30 Watt version and they were too bright when I used them in a light fixture with 5 lamp sockets. These are still rather bright in the same 5 socket light fixture, but acceptable. The light output will become a little less with time. When compared to an incandescent bulb, these appear to be pure white and the standard bulb a weak yellow glow by comparison. Once you adapt to these full spectrum bulbs, you cannot go back to standard incandescent bulbs. Now I am replacing incandescent bulbs in all areas of my new house except in areas of low usage or places the bulbs will not fit. These bulbs will fit in most fixtures, however. I am replacing the fixture in my garage to put some 45 Watt full spectrum bulbs into a cluster light fixture. I live in the Houston, Texas area so cold weather is not normally a problem. Fluorescent bulbs often are weak in light output in cold weather until they warm up after a few minutes. When warm, they work fine. I have not tried this particular bulb series in a cold soak environment yet. The payoff should come this summer when electric bills are at their peak. These bulbs are very efficient and produce a lot less heat than incandescent bulbs. I look forward to the day that LED bulbs become affordable and brighter, but for now, this is the way to go. Definitely avoid the so called warm white fluorescent bulbs in the stores. Order only full spectrum CFL bulbs or those rated 51K or 55K or anything in the 5000 to 6000 Kelvin light spectrum. I would avoid the bulbs in the 6000 Kelvin range. They probably have too much of a blue shift. The 51K or 5100 Kelvin bulbs are perfect. Then it is just a matter of selecting the wattage you want. For multiple bulb fixtures, these 23 Watt bulbs are perfect.Read more ›

My Amazon instant update says I bought these 2.5 years ago, so it's time for a recap review. I initially thought these had decent brightness, understandably somewhat dimmed compared to other similar 23-watt bulbs because of the full spectrum coatings. Now, however, they have reduced in brightness well beyond their initial levels and 1 of the 6 bulbs failed completely. For the price, this is a significant investment of money and I expected them to last much longer, especially since they are only used 20 or so hours per week. Essentially I'm at an estimated 2k or 3k (max) hours of use and I think it's time to replace them because we have 4 bulbs (2 each in 2 overhead fixtures) in one 13' x 16' room and it's hard to see at night because these bulbs have lost so much luminance. So the 8,000 hour lifespan is fairly misleading if my 6 bulbs are typical of the quality you can expect.

Bought two six-packs about a year ago. Today we're down to five working bulbs. Three of them were unusable out of the package due to flickering/buzzing problems. The rest have died during normal use. Really like the light color and efficiency, but these bulbs definitely don't last long at all for the price. Pretty disappointing.

I'm not sure why these are labeled as super mini bulbs. These bulbs are larger than standard incandescent bulbs and will not fit in many of my fixtures. I suspect amazon has mixed up the bulbs they are selling. I checked the manufactures website and this model bulb is not the item number that matches the super mini bulbs. EP2357AE bulbs are listed as 23-Watt Full Spectrum Bulbs. E2352AK is the product number for 23 Watt Super Mini Bulbs and they are not full spectrum bulbs. As of the date this review was typed the manufactures website is not showing a Super Mini 23 Watt Full Spectrum Bulb. I'm returning these. I also purchased the 15 Watt Super Minis and they are not the correct item either.
If you decide to purchase these bulbs you may want to check the manufactures website after you receive the bulbs to make sure you did in fact receive the right item.
