This is advertised as an 11 Watt bulb with a 40 Watt equivalent output. The Product page says 11 Watts as does the shipping slip in the package and the Amazon sticker on the bubble wrap protecting the bulb. The blub itself, including it's manufacturer's packaging says 14 Watts. 3 Watts doesn't sound like much, but that is a 27% increase from the advertised 11 Watts.
I'm also disappointed that this is advertised as an outdoor bulb, but it comes on SLOW. It takes a full 2 minutes to reach full brightness. Once there, it's good, and I'm happy. But when it is first turned on, there is little light output. If this is OK for you, great. If not, and you want the ability to see something when you flip the switch, then not so much...
I have run this for a week so no long term evaluations yet.
However, it turns out that this item, the GE 49894, is not an 11 watt 500 lumen bulb; Amazon is instead shipping a 14 watt bulb that purports to put out 750 lumens, the typical equivalent of a 60 watt bulb; curiously, the GE packaging claims that the 14 watt is only equivalent to a 40 watt standard bulb, but the packaging and the writing on the bulb claims the bulb has a lumen output of 750, not 500 typical of the 11 watt cfl's which are a 40 watt equivalent bulb.
Who do you believe here?
This appears to be a GE labeling issue, and whether you receive a 11 watt 500 lumen or 14 watt which claims to put out 750 lumens, but is only a 40 watt equivalent, is not clear.
a standard incandescent bulb would have lasted the better part of a year.

We use these bulbs on our porch lights and they work great. Very bright and uses less electricity. Regular bulbs would pop after a rain storm or would burn out from power surges. Read morePublished on June 22, 2014 by Rick
The light bulb is a replacement. The previous one lasted four years. The lighted space provided is approximately seventy ft in diameter. Read morePublished on March 28, 2012 by light
I've used these in my outdoor fixtures for the last five years. They work great and require replacement VERY infrequently, (I'm talking about years of use before failing!)Published on March 7, 2012 by C. Kaiser Jr.
