One failed within 3 months.

They're very bright, do an incredible job of lighting up the garage and are reasonably priced for such a bright bulb.

This bulb is very bright and the light temp really goes with the colors in my room.

The 40W fluorescents (150-200W equivalent) are hard to find in most brick and mortar stores (they like to sell the smaller 40W and the 100W equivalents) so I was double-happy when I saw this one at Amazon. First, because Amazon carries it and second because it's available under super-savers' shipping.

Talking about the item itself:

- you WILL experience some delay when you turn it on but it's hardly noticeable, like maybe 1/10 of a second
- once it's on, unlike the 'cheaper' fluorescents that need to warm up, it shines at or close to full brightness immediately
- it's a bulky, significantly wider and longer than the 150W incandescent equivalents and it may not fit all fixtures where a regular 150W bulb used to fit
- does not work well with a dimmer - it's either on or off [I tried it with one and it did come on at full brightness but something is telling me that you may shorten its life when used this way]
- the light is bright, so bright, I would not stare at it directly - I did once and I saw 'ghosts' for the next 15-30 minutes
- the color of light is closer to 'solar' than what our 'incandescents' deliver, less yellow, more blue
- unlike neon lights, there's no flicker
- it consumes less power when compared to an incandescent

The above were my subjective comments. Here are the specs, as the manufacturer lists them:

- Light output: 2800 lumens
- Energy used: 42W
- Life: 8000 hrs.
- Color temperature: 6500K
- Electric charge: 610mA

The major issue I have with the fluorescents is their lifespan. Maybe I am unlucky but, after replacing nearly all my light bulbs in the house - a few dozen - they seem to burn out more often.

This light is intensely bright. I got onto the Fluoroscent bulbs when I switched over and I saw how much it reduced my electric bill. I also liked the fact that I could spoil myself with the high powered light bulb without the high powered bulb prices. I put a few 100 watt bulbs in the house but I didn't even know they went to 200 until I saw this one. To be honest it's almost to much. It really and truly makes it feel like it's the middle of the day when I turn this thing on at night. I am excited to read with it. It's a very pure slightly blueish light. The bulb is much larger than a normal bulb so be aware.

The only light I could compare it to is the elven light in Lord of the Rings. You know the one Frodo holds up to fend off the spider? It's exactly like that. Seriously. It's elven bright.

I use these lights for a cabinet grow box for my seedlings and clones. They have enough lumens to promote vegetative growth, and are in the correct color spectrum. They produce very little heat, given their wattage, which makes them great for small grow areas. You won't need a ton of ventilation to keep the heat down; just a little 4" inline fan is all I use.

Finding a CFL greater than 100W-equivalent is pretty difficult. Finding one that is 200W-equivalent and 6500K is almost impossible. These lights are perfect for photography where you need true-color rendition. The price is right too.

Well, this is not a petite little bulb, and I would suggest anyone that wants one to check the dimensions before you buy -- won't fit in any enclosures where there is a tight space for the bulb to fit into. That said, for my application (lighting a kitchen from a ceiling fixture), it works perfectly. The light output is very, very bright, and very, very blue -- it really does nearly perfectly emulate bright sunlight. It lights up our kitchen very well -- one bulb can light up several hundred square feet.

Overall, great product, great price, and great light output, but it's a little large in size. Not necessarily a downside, but be aware.

Edit: A little over three years later (6/24/2012), still burning strong in my kitchen 24/7.

Been using three of these for around 16 hours a day for 6 months now with no troubles. They are turned on and not turned off during that period though- I have no idea how they perform when constantly turned on and off, which is not how CFLs should be run anyway btw.

These bulbs are large physically, heavy, bright, very blue/white/daylight-ish, and they represent an excellent value.

I had this bulb for about a month and a half now. It works great for me but I haven't had it long enough to say it lasts long.

Things you have to realize when buying this bulb:
Its a fairly high wattage bulb for a CFL so its best in a floor standing lamp. I wouldn't put this in a light fixture.

When it comes to all CFL, if it says Daylight, its will have more of a white light rather than yellow. I wanted this and it has a bright light more comparable to a flourescent light.

I purchased 2 of these about a month ago. I have them in simple clamp lights that are designed to hold a 60 watt bulb.
The output of light is amazing-- they fully light up the space that they are in
The quality of light is on the blue side
They come on quickly having no discernable warm up delay
These are large bulbs and probably would not fit in many standard light fixtures

Unlike other reviewers, I have experienced no defects with these bulbs. I have purchased similar bulbs by different manufactures and have had problems with them but these bulbs are functioning quite well.
