Doesn't last long either.

Grab incandescent bulbs while you can- they are going to be illegal soon as a law was passed that will gradually phase them out for CFL's- which really is a shame.
Jody Noller
The Reveal Bulbs do have a nice warm glow and evenly light the room.

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
I've spent years working & living with fluorescent & regular bulbs & have been happiest & more relaxed under these bulbs! I can't afford the true full spectrum bulbs (which are paradise for the eyes & brain!) so I tried these "Reveal" bulbs. What a difference it has made to me! The eye strain I used to feel is gone, the dull head feeling is gone; the colors stand out much more brightly & so make me even feel happier. I now use only "Reveal" bulbs in my home. Not everyone will notice a difference as not everyone is affected by color & light the same ways. If you ARE feeling eye strain, that 'dull' feeling in the head or even the winter blues from lack of sunlight, these may help! Light & color affect our moods & feelings of wellness, so , buy a pack on sale, give them a try. I hope they work for you as they have for me!

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
These bulbs do exactly what they are meant to do. On my ceiling fan/light, I have 2 ordinary soft whites and two Reveals. The difference is clear. The soft whites give everything an obvious yellow tint. The Reveal bulbs do not. More colors come out. My eyes are more relaxed.

I often spend hours at my home computer, so anything that reduces eye strain is welcomed. One issue that the previous rater mentioned is true - their light is somewhat dimmer than of the soft white bulb of same wattage. It does not feel different enough to require a 60W instead of 40W, or to require a 75W instead of 60W. I'm fine with the same Wattage as before.

btw, I previously used a similar bulb from Philips. It may have been called "Natural Spectrum". It performed in the same way.

I have replaced all lights in the house over last 2 years with GE reveal. They seem to have a long lifespan and the difference in color is amazing... walls that once were yellow tinted are now white... colors are more vibrant... especially poinsettia plants at Christmas! The rooms seem more lush and vibrant. Whatever room you do first... be sure to replace all the bulbs or else he mixed effect may cancel out the benefit.

If you need a 60-watt incandescent bulb, I wholeheartedly recommend these Reveal bulbs. The light the produce is gentle and quit pleasing to the eye.

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
I have a medical condition in which CFL bulbs and regular fluorescent lights cause me to have seizures. LED replacement bulbs are also a problem because light fixtures often operate on alternating current, causing them to flicker. While this flicker is imperceptible to most people, I have an abnormally high flicker fusion threshold, allowing me to see the flicker and have resulting medical problems. Needless to say, I've been stocking up on incandescent lights like crazy so I can continue light my house after the ban. (People have commented that "there is no ban, just regulation on energy efficiency." Whatever, the regulations are so strict that they effectively ban incandescent lighting.)

Of all of the incandescent bulbs I've tried out, GE Soft White and Reveal bulbs are my favorite. They last a very long time, provide beautiful lighting, and are perfectly priced. This is definitely the brand to get.

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
I'm a fan of Reveal bulbs because they create a much more pleasing spectrum of light in a room and 'reveal' the colors that were distorted by the over abundance of the yellow spectrum in normal incandescent bulbs. I use them for all of my interior lighting (except for a few halogen floods) and they provide very pleasing 'mid day' light. This is a product that is worth the extra cost because the time you spend in your home (which for most people is a significant chunk!) can be dramatically improved with good lighting. To me its like spending the money to get a good monitor for work.

These 60-watt medium base bulbs are perfect for overhead lighting and especially enclosed 'globe' lights that require lower watt bulbs. They really do make a noticeable difference!

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
I am extremely, extremely disappointed with GE's Reveal light bulbs. I have tried the 60-watt pack, a 75-watt pack, and a 40-watt pack, for different light fixtures in my home. The 40s blew out when I installed them. The 60 an 75-watt bulbs burned out within a month. VERY MISLEADING INFORMATION FROM GE ABOUT THESE BULBS!!! If it had happened with maybe just one bulb, or even one package, I might pass it off as getting a bad one. But, these bulbs are fully consistent in being very short lived. I think GE should be ashamed for marketing a very inferior product as something it is not. I know there are some positive ratings here, but I suspect the bulbs haven't been up long. Save yourself a lot of frustration--DON'T BUY GE REVEAL BULBS! Certainly not until they improve them and match up with what they are advertised to be able to do.

Style Name: 60 Watt Reveal
Using the GE Reveal light bulb my house ( and especially my reading room) has been looking better. It was doing a room makeover by only buying a new light bulb. The words now jump of the page. The pages (and the room) look brighter and whiter. I too was skeptical. However, when BzzAgent.com sent me a free package of light bulbs I had to take the plunge. Since installing my first reveal, my friends and family have all commented positively.
