I saw bulbs like this at a local restaurant and was so charmed by their quintessential "cartoon light bulb over the head" look, I just had to have some of my own! For me, keeping them turned down to about a candle's brightness is just right- I'm not after illumination, I want the filament to be an art-element in it's own right, so I keep them on a dimmer and turned down.

These are not rough-duty bulbs at all. The rating of 3000 hrs is an average, meaning some burn longer and some burn for fewer hours. Some tips for extending the life:
-Keep them turned down to about half power. This alone should extend the life by about 3x.
-Never, ever jar the bulb when it is on. The filaments in these bulbs are more delicate than regular bulbs and have more filament suspended from the harp. A hard knock will break a hot filament and prolonged exposure to vibration will eventually weaken the filament where it is held by the harp.
-The squirrel cage and hair-pin filament styles should only be used vertically.

You can also get carbon filament lamps which have an even warmer (oranger) appearance.

Here is a picture of a lamp I made using one of the quad-coil bulbs:- [...]

This bulb is dim enough that you can use it without a shade and bask in the awesomeness of its four loop filament. Also it casts a warm glow reminiscent of candle light which really classes up the joint

With everyone from the White House on down complaining about incandescent light bulbs being evil and pushing those CFL's ("Curly Fry Lightbulbs") on us these days, it's refreshing to see one of these illuminating your desk.

First of all, the glow from these is dreamy if you have an antique filled room and need it to look "right".

Second of all (and this is a jab at the enviro-nazis), these are MUCH safer for the environment than CFL's, they do not contain mercury, plastics, etc. Just good old fashioned metal (biodegradable) and glass, two natural elements. If you accidentally drop and break one of these, you don't need a hazmat kit!

I have a vintage radio area and use these to light it. The filaments are not overly bright, and put off a very nice glow. Superb, and real attention getters.

Last year, had some guests over and had one of these bulbs in the overhead light. Guests were fascinated by the "old" lightbulb and they even took pictures of it! By far, the light bulb over our heads was the biggest hit of the night.

In this day and age of compact fluorescent and LED bulbs, sometimes you miss the warm glow of an old school incandescent light bulb. Compared to these newer technologies, this bulb is not efficient. For 40 watts, you don't get a lot of light, but the light you do get is very warm and reminds me how lights used to look.

We use this light primarily as a Nighttime feeling light for our baby. Its bright enough you can maneuver the living room, but its not bright enough to fully illuminate the entire room.

There are certainly more energy efficient bulbs out there, but none that look this beautiful and give you that sense of warmth like a filament light bulb.

The brightness of the bulb's 40 watt rating is about right. I compared it with another Edison style bulb I purchase from Home Depot and a standard 40 watt bulb I already had. I didn't measure the exact lumens, but comparing them side by side, the brightness appears consistent across all the bulbs.

I agree with other users about using this bulb with a dimmer if you are concerned about not being able to see the filaments (which is really why you are paying so much for a single bulb). At full brightness, you will not be able to see the filaments distinctly when looking at the bulb directly, but if you use the bulb in a tinted glass pendant as I am, the tint helps dim the bulb enough to make out the filaments even at full brightness. Dimming the bulb is probably a much more elegant solution.

My issue with this bulb concerns its size. The listed "Assembled Height" of this bulb is 5.75". The bulb comes nowhere near this. I measured it to be only 4.5 inches. This makes a difference to me when the bulb is meant to be used without a lamp shade, in a open direct view application. I expected the bulb to be bigger, with bigger filaments so you can see if from a further distance. The width of the bulb is also slightly off from the listed specification. The listed width is 2.25", I measured it to be about 1-2 cm more. Hope this helps.

We're using this bulb for our outdoor porch lamp since we didn't want a bright light shining into our home, or into our neighbor's. We wanted a vintage look, and this bulb achieves that. It gives off a nice yellow-ish light.

The bulb works fine but the 40 Watt bulb is too bright to see the filament. I just bought another bulb at the Edison home is Ft. Myer, also rated as a 40 watt bulb, but its much less bright (the woman at counter said it would be). I suggest people buy the 25 watt bulb if you want to see the filament and get a more antique like look.

We have this bulb in the breakfast nook in a pendant light, we wanted something not so bright in our faces, this did the trick and it's very cool with the retro style filament. It seems like it could be more fragile though, so care is needed not to bump the bulb as it may break the filament prematurely.
