I bought these glass light bulbs since I find that 'bare spiral' type CFL bulbs emit lighting that's too harsh. Also, the 'bare spiral' shape is just not suited for pendant light fixtures.

This GE Energy-Smart Covered Glass CFL Light Bulb (with its tiny electronic ballast) looks like a regular incandescent light bulb but has all the advantages of fluorescent lighting. The GE 60-watt Equivalent uses only 15 watts - effectively an energy reduction of 75% - great!

Fluorescent bulbs do not generate as much heat as regular incandescent light bulbs so, I use this GE 15W CFL light bulb in an accent pendant light fixture.

The color temperature of this CFL glass light bulb is 2700K - the same color temperature of a regular incandescent light bulb. The light produced by this CFL bulb appears yellowish white so you get the same warm glow of an incandescent lamp with just a quarter of the energy!

A FURTHER NOTE ON BULB COLOR TEMPERATURE: As the color temperature increases to 3000K - 3500K, the color of the light appears less yellow and more white. A bulb with a color temperature of 5000K or higher, produces light that appears bluish white - this is the color temperature of daylight.

ABOUT THE BULB'S WARM UP PERIOD: Compact fluorescents in general require a warm-up period to reach peak luminous power. Although this is an inherent issue with current CFL technology, many reviewers cite the long 'warm up period' as a negative ... and indeed it is, especially with this bulb's tiny electronic ballast. It takes longer to warm up than regular CFL bulbs with bulky ballasts.

I conducted my own 'tests' on the 'warm up period' of the GE 15-Watt Energy-Smart Covered Glass CFL Light Bulb.

The negative reviews of compact fluorescents in general are somewhat irrelevant considering that this "warm-up" issue is inherent in the current technology.

For my own use I prefer the GE 20/75 watt version - It's not a bad trade-off considering that you get the equivalent of 75 watts for the price of 20. Another issue inherent to the technology is that CFLs color temperature generally runs much cooler ( or bluer) than the average incandescent.

As a lighting designer I personally don't like this type of lamp for all applications - aesthetically I do prefer the warm glow of an incandescent lamp. However this is one of the warmest CFLs on the market and it truly does give you the brightness of a 75 watt light bulb. It is my CFL of preference in my own home.

If you are looking for energy-saving CFL that is bright enough to work by, don't hesitate to purchase the 75-watt version, it is one of the best designed CFLs on the market today. The frosted glass enclosure is fabulous and greatly reduces the harsh light typical of the bare-coil type of CFL. (I'm not sure if all the wattages of this series have the frosted enclosure, and I've not tried the 60-watt version so I can't vouch for its brightness)

The 20/75;

Okay, the warm up time is long. But if you are not using these bulbs in an "instant-on" application, they are wonderful. I use them in a table lamp that stays on for 8-16 hours per day (depending on the time of year). I turn them on at dusk (and don't mind waiting 5 minutes for them to warm up), and leave them on until dawn. My last bulb lasted about 3 years! (This compared to the 6-month life I got from 60W incandescent bulbs in the same lamp.) Plus, the light is a nice "warm" light, much like an incandescent bulb. For me, the 5-minute wait is well worth the savings in energy and bulb costs. I also take great comfort in knowing that this bulb will still be burning when I leave it on for a week when I am away from home. So, for applications where "instant-on" illumination is not a big issue, this bulb can't be beat.

I purchased these to replace 2 sconce lights that were at 100W's.

At first when I clicked them on, we said, oh, this isn't going to work. Too dim.

But after reading the other reviews about the warm up times, I gave them another try.

Wow, I was very surprised that after a minute or 2, these powered to full brightness, and I can barely tell the difference between the 100w bulbs, and these are only supposed to be equivalent to 60W's.

These will save me money on my electric bill, and last a lot longer (supposedly) so they will ultimately pay for themselves.

It also seems that the warm up time is less each time I turn them on, but maybe that is the external lighting in the room, giving that effect.

In general these are excellent!

These look a lot like regular bulbs from afar. They have a nice warm golden color like a lot of standard bulbs, which I think is good to know because sometimes energy smart bulbs have that colder blue-ish tint to them. I'll definitely be getting more of these in the future if they continue to make them.

the size of this CFL bulb. It is basically the same size as the 60 watt regular bulb that was in it. Companies, it seem, are making headway in the size of this type of bulb. I am so glad these were available because I just purchase an older lamp whose shade kind of snaps onto the bulb. I did not try but I do not believe the regular curly bulb would work.
