I bought this product as a less expensive option to Ottlite replacement bulbs. These emit a noticeably more yellow light vs. the Ottlite 'white' light. I do not know how this will contribute to eyestrain, but for now the savings are considerable.
UPDATE: The first bulb failed after 45 days. It became noticably dimmer and began to flicker as they do when they need replacing. The original Ottlight bulb lasted almost three years. 45 days suggests it is defective.
Update II: All 4 of these bulbs failed within 3 months. If I could reduce the evaluation to zero stars, I would. These bulbs were never bright, and in the end, I consider them garbage at any price.
Update III: I junked the Feit bulbs and bought the Sunlight brand here instead. The quality is significantly better: bright white light instead of the darker yellowish tint of Feit. I get the impression that all these less expensive Ottlite wannabe 13W bulbs are made in the same Chinese factory, but Feit is selling 2nds that were discarded by the manufacturer.
