Great florescent light bulbs, they work very well!
Merlin
3 of the 6 bulbs in the back were DOA, two more burnt within a week, and the last one hung in for a couple months.
Joseph Behrens
Glood bargain on these CFL's - which was good because one was damaged when I received the package.

The seller was great but the bulbs left something to be desired.

I got them around September 4th 2009 and here it is November 4th 2009 and half of the bulbs are dead.

The package says they are 5 year bulb's well if so that 5 years just blew by.

I contacted GE about this but don't expect to hear anything back from them.

I would say stay away from these GE CF bulbs.

****** Edit ******
All the bulbs I bought no longer worked by December 18th 2009.
I went to Walmart's and bought some generic no name brand CF bulbs that are still going strong 3 years later.
Some of them stay on 24/7/365 and got some that hardly ever get turned on.

I never did hear back from GE about the issue.

I reduced my rating from 2 stars to 1 because of this.

The bulb was great when I first installed it. But then 3-4 months later, it's dead. This is a bulb that should last 4-5 years with normal usage.

Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL bulbs) do use significantly less energy than incandescent bulbs (IC bulbs), so if you eventually replace all your burned out IC bulbs with CFL bulbs, you will see a decrease in your electric bill.

CFL bulbs also put out much less heat than IC bulbs reducing the heat load in a home in summer. High wattage IC bulbs can actually burn you if touched or cause a fire if they stay in contact with lightweight flammable material.

However, CFL bulbs are more expensive, so it will take a while to recover the few dollars more that you pay for a multipack with your savings in electricity (and then start saving real money).

And there are some other considerations:

1. These GE CFL bulbs do NOT last five years in normal household use as GE claims, so their long-term cost advantage over IC bulbs is not as great as advertised, especially if you already have a supply of spare IC bulbs to use up. The five years is a dubious GE advertising claim which is apparently based on assumptions about intermittent usage rate (hours on per day), amount of on/off cycles, good fixture ventilation, and steady voltage (which all affect bulb life).

I have bought a few packages of spiral GE CFL bulbs over the last few years, and at least half of them have burned out - well before the five year claim.

2. CFL bulbs need to warm up. When you first turn the bulb on there is a very slight delay before any light is produced (less than one second). Also, there is a short time before it comes up to full light output, although this has improved in the latest bulbs. However, if you are using them outside or in a garage, this warm up period can be a few minutes if it is cold.

The good: These bulbs are very bright, Seemed brighter than 100 Watt output. All six in my bathroom lit up every single corner.

The bad: These bulbs lasted two weeks! I had read the reviews and figured people had received defective bulbs and that mine would be fine, they were not. I have other CF bulbs around the house and they have been fine for the past 7 months, but these bulbs died too quickly and were a waste of money. I am going to contact amazon to see if I can get some kind of return. There really is no explanation. I thought maybe the dimmer switch in my bathroom was the problem, but my bedroom lamp is also a CF bulb with a dimmer switch and I've had no problems with it. Don't buy these, they are bright, but won't last long.

I purchased a pack of these bulbs (6 for $25). I've gone through all 6 in less than 7 months. Everyone of them have burned out and failed. The package says 8,000 hours...no way! I can see one or two going bad but all six? This is just a bad product. Do not buy it.

We have been using CFL bulbs for 18 years and have seen the good and the bad. In locations where there is air circulation the bulbs have lasted 18 years, our actual experience. I am replacing the ones in the basement for the first time in 18 years. The ones in our hallway fixtures lasted less than on year. The ballast at the base of the bulb creates heat. If the heat is no dissipated the ballast will burn out in six months or less. So, do not use in recessed can fixtures, enclosed globes, ceiling fans or similar. Otherwise these are great bulbs.

They work fine, but we noticed right away that these aren't as bright as the GE Reveal Incandescent 100 watt bulbs that we replaced. We put them in our bathroom over the vanities, and it is now noticeably dimmer in there when we're using the mirrors, getting dressed, etc. Now we're shopping for more powerful CFL's. We'll probably try to find some 125 or 150 watt equivalent CFL bulbs so that they'll be as bright as the 100 watt incandescent bulbs they're replacing.

I miss a filament in my light bulb! SO I switched over to CFL a little over a year ago. started with the Bright effect bulbs. they lasted only about a month. so stay away from them! Next I decided to go with the Tried and true GE brand. we made it past the 1 month mark but sadly they burnt out at a little over 5 months. and not just one, ALL of them burnt out within days of each other. and at well over a dollar a bulb I really don't know how these bulbs are supposed to save money. on the plus side when they are working I love the brightness they offer. :-)
