Amazingly bright and natural daylight white light color.

We cannot be happier with these. After all the sickly, yellow tinted bulbs, these really light up our rooms and brighten our mood.
We have used them for a while, and they seem to last a long time, even in light fixtures which were known to burn regular bulbs quite quickly.

I like this light bulb exactly because they are 6,500K, or "daylight". It's not your for your comfortable reading lamp, or to create an ambiance in your living room. The color of the light bulb is closer to what you would get from an open sky, which is blueish. And being a Compact Fluorescent, they use much less energy than regular bulbs. Buy this if you are looking for some color accuracy rather than light mood.

Style Name: 26W=100WSize Name: Sunshine (5000K)
This GE "Sunshine" CFL is as far as its possible to go in residential lighting without a bright white light feeling industrial or "harsh." Too much blue is as unsettling to most people as is too much yellow.

5000K is just perfect for living spaces and is the lighting standard in Japan and Europe. Its just the right amount of bright white light - not too mellow nor too harsh. It doesn't have the yellow color associated with traditional incandescents so the effect is just very energizing in a vivid way when you step into a room - you will really feel awake and alive under them and its a great reading light, too.

If you're looking for a bright white light that looks natural, this is the one that you need and you can say good bye forever to putting up with yellow lights.

And if you really want a tinted light with a hint of yellow to relax in a space, then 4100K is the perfect light for it. For task lighting, 6500K works quite well for kitchen/bathroom/garage/utility fixtures but its way too harsh for living spaces and for most people, it just looks out of place there.

2700K is just too warm and too yellow and makes room lighting look dingy and dreary. The effect induces fatigue and a feeling of listlessness. Not the kind of light most people want to put in to light up a room in the winter - or in the summer months. For most people who desire warm lighting, 3500K is the happy medium and there is 4100K on the cool side of it.

In short, I would say if you want a relaxing light go for 3500-4100K for a cozy feeling and if you want to have bright white light that's not overpowering, choose 5000K. Keep 6500K for places where you really need to have task lighting to get things done. This is a good rule to follow for selecting proper lighting.

Style Name: 26W=100WSize Name: Sunshine (5000K)
I've replaced about a dozen bulbs around my house with these. Not only are they only about a quarter the wattage of the incandescent bulbs they've replaced, but the quality of the light is far closer to natural sunlight. The yellow/red skew of standard incancesdents is dramatically reduced -- these are much closer to the color of natural light. The only negative I have is price, but they are a lot cheaper at other locations...

Style Name: 23W=100WSize Name: Daylight (6500K)
i have used the ge 6500k 40, 60 and 100watt equivalent bulbs for some time.

a 13w cfl over the stove and a 26 watt over the kitchen sink, a 26 watt over the washing machine and some 9 watt in a few lamps that arent kept on or used as general lighting.

the daylight color temprature is useful for separating dark blue and black clothing in laundry and i find it good for lighting up cooking food...ie, pink in meats.

i use them in lamps for dressing when i have to match dark socks.

i find that being in the light is shrill and unpleasnt if left on for a long time - like being in an autopsy room or something but very useful for some tasks.

i was told that some high color temps dont attract bugs...in a comparison with a cfl in an amber shroud and a 6500k ge bulb it seems that they both attracted the same amount of bugs...a few, but not many. it may be that the lower bulbs temps dont attract the bugs as much as a warmer bug-incandescent.

they seem of good quality but i have had 1 dud in the 26 watt version.

Several years ago I bought GE's 100-watt equivalent (as well as 60-watt equivalent, and 75-watt equivalent) Daylight 6500K CFLs for a residential application. I specifically (and mistakenly) bought the General Electric brand due to perceived quality. The "quality of light" was discovered to be OUTSTANDING (credit must be given where credit is due); 'GREAT for work areas, e.g., utility room, garage, home office, above work bench, etc. HOWEVER, personal experience has shown that these bulbs repeatedly fail prematurely. Of the six (6) bulbs that I purchased, all six (6) failed prematurely. When I returned the first two failed bulbs to the manufacturer for a warranty replacement, I was provided with a GE coupon with which to obtain replacement GE CFLs. Disappointingly, the replacement GE CFLs also failed prematurely. As opposed to saving me money (via widely advertised "extended bulb-life and energy savings"), these bulbs have actually cost me money through their repeated premature failure. My personal opinion: 'Save your money!

I chose this lightbulb, despite the higher price, because I wanted one that would replicate natural sunlight in my room. When I turn it on during the day with the blinds open, the room is brighter but you don't immediately realize a light is on. The spectrum appears so similar to that of natural light that it forms a continuous lighted area from my desk (where I have the light) to the window. It's a cool effect and dispels the warm glow that adds ambience but also makes everything golden-colored. I think it's a better light for doing desk work, especially in conjunction with the blue/white light that LCDs give off. Add to that the energy-saving features, and I'm looking for excuses to add some more of these to my apartment!
