3 Stars because it is working, but far from what I expected.

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.

To be fair, I have yet to decide if maybe there is an electrical problem on my exterior carriage lights which are also on a switch timer, or whether these are the most short-lived bulbs I've ever seen. After installing them in two garage carriage lamps that are on a timer they worked fine for about a week. They provided a very nice light that was not too bright or dark, but after a week they began flickering badly. After a few days of this one side's tube had almost all but burned out. There was still some light, but for the most part the light was gone and the other one started flickering. I took them out, tried again, and ordered two more. Same problem occurred. Hopefully it was just my bad experience and/or carriage light wiring because they really were well suited for outdoor use and provided a great exterior light!

I had a devil of a time finding these, but after I did, I am happy to report that they work. We leave lights on in our subdivision at all times, and previous bulbs have lasted several years. I imagine these would, as well.

These are nice out door lamp post bulbs, enclosed spiral CFL's from GE, which have a good color rendition.

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.

this was installed on my post lamp fixture in my front yard. may be an issue with the bulb I got but it was dead after less than 1 month of use.
a standard incandescent bulb would have lasted the better part of a year.
