There is not much to say about these light bulbs. They work well, they produce a nice soft, not too bright light. They seem to be long-lasting so far. I prefer these over florescent light bulbs because the florescent light bulbs can bring on migraines. I would definitely buy them again.

It is hard to find incandescent bulbs in the stores. My wife has problems with fluorescent lights so it is great to have these available.

I am stockpiling incandescent bulbs before all become extinct. I love the light incandescent bulbs produce, and refuse to deal with mercury laden "green" bulbs.

Been using GE bulbs for many years. They project a pleasing white light, and they last a long time. If you need traditional incandescent bulbs, these are as good as they get. So get 'em!

Buy them while they're still legal.

Nice light, good color.

These medium base bulbs are perfect for lighting. They last a long time and provide beautiful lighting.

Aren't you really tired and totally disgusted with the federal "govmint" dictating every d--- thing?
I am. It get's worse every single day.

So,

...this is my way of sidestepping the arrogance and myopia of our corrupted federal bureaucracy -
by buying the light bulbs I really want thru AMAZON. IMAGINE, ALL THIS FREEDOM. It's almost
like things make sense again!

Bulbs arrived on time and well packaged. Unfortunately, 2 of the 4 bulbs did not work. The 2 bulbs that did work have a good bright light. However, cannot recommend this product and will not be buying GE lightbulbs again.

I'm using these bulbs with some super low or read as super warm cct LEDs mounted in desk lamps, rated at a very low 2200k. While I feel that those candelbera LEDs are adequate to replace the 40 watt candelabras, I don't feel they're ready just yet to handle the main lighting. So, until I can find LEDS that are warm enough, I'll have icandescent bulbs handle the brighter overhead ceiling lights while I have the LEDS handle the smaller but more often used lamp lights.

Also, it's worth noting that icandescent light is recognized as an ideal light source, you can perceive colors most accurately under it. As a result, icandescent light has a perfect CRI of 100; the LEDs, on the other hand, have a slightly lower CRI, color rendering index, of 83.

Update-I compared this icandescent with a lower CCT then usual LED bulb. The light emitted by the two light sources looks almost identical. The only noticeable difference is that the LED source appears a bit brighter.

Good bulbs. Not five star just because the regular price is ridiculous. On sale (I got them for $4) they are regular good light bulbs.

I ordered 3 packs of these, 12 bulbs, for use with the light on my bench grinder. These incandescent bulbs give me the bright white light I need instantly when I turn on the power, not like those cursed CFL/LED bulbs that need to warm up then give off less than acceptable brightness.

I ordered mine from eLightBulbs and they seem to really care about their customers. Their packaging is top notch, the 3 packs were in a carton completely surrounded on all sides with a generous amount of those white shipping peanuts to protect them from breakage during shipping. There were no broken bulbs or duds, and when I tested each of them they all worked as they should - nice bright instantaneous light.
