5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bulb; Terrific Packaging, May 7, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GE Lighting 47484 Energy Smart CFL 11-Watt (40-watt replacement) 500-Lumen G25 Light Bulb with Medium Base, 1-Pack (Tools & Home Improvement)
I recently bought four of these bulbs for my bathroom, to replace some others that had begun burning out. The good news is that these 11 watt bulbs are as bright, or even brighter, than the 14 watt bulbs (from a different manufacturer) that they replaced. The other good news is that there was little delay in achieving full brightness; snap on the switch and the bulbs light up the room, reaching full brightness in five to ten seconds. My previous bulbs used to light up at a fraction of their brightness and then take about 30 seconds to reach full intensity.

Having just received them, I can't comment on how long they will last, but if there turns out to be a problem in that department, I'll revise this review.

Now the best thing about these bulbs is the packaging. They come in that heavy, clear plastic packaging that is normally a real pain to open. Not these. The packages opened with minimal fuss and no need to resort to scissors or other tools, and no cut fingers.

Your review was from 3 years ago, so regarding the packaging I just wanted to let readers know that it is still very easy to open. There's an area at the back of the package where you sort of punch in the cardboard/paper to get at the bulb with minimal effort.
