I've used these in my wall sconces for the last couple years. I bought a bunch at the same time since I'd started using reveal bulbs throughout my house and figured I'd stock up. Sadly, unlike the many other excellent reveal bulbs I've used, these are a bit on the unreliable side. First off they have VERY erratic lifespans, and quite a few never lived to the stated 750-1000hrs. They also suffer from a manufacturing defect that makes the stem of the bulb and its connection to the metal base extremely fragile. I've had these bulbs break off while screwing them in!

All that said, when they work, they work really well. 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. They are generally 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.

The product photo shows transparent glass. The product I received has opaque (white) glass.

So apparently Amazon won't allow me to submit such a short review. I really don't have anything else to write concerning this product. It's a light bulb. It has a candelabra base, as expected. When placed in a working socket, it generates light. I should read descriptions more carefully ("frosted globe") and not depend on photographs... but reading is for losers. No offense if someone is actually reading this review.

We used to have a vanity mirror in our bathroom that used 4 larger based bulbs. Then we had it remodeled, and the contractor bought a mirror (which was not the one we picked out) that used 5 smaller based bulbs. I knew they'd be harder to find at my local retailer - and I was right! I searched everywhere when they started blowing out and couldn't find them. It finally occurred to me to look on the Internet (what can I say? I'm an old-fashioned woman!), and was thrilled to find them at Amazon - at a price I could live with! The picture makes it look like they're not frosted, but they are - which is exactly what I wanted. I like the Reveal (blue) as well, as the primary color in our bathroom is blue. So, definitely a win-win - and I know where to look when I need more. Thanks, Amazon!

Gives a nice cool light - noticeably less yellow than regular bulbs. I have used the larger globe version though and found they had a VERY short lifespan. Maybe these small ones will turn out to be better...fingers crossed...
