From the Manufacturer
GE 78941 Energy Smart 11 Watt Daylight Ceiling Fan Candelabra Base CFL A17 40-Watt Replacement . GE Compact Fluorescent lamps (CFL) offer many advantages that include cost savings, extra long life, light output, and color rendering. With this CFL you'll get dramatic energy cost savings up to 77 percent vs. incandescent lamps of comparable light output. The extra long life most last 8 to 10 times longer, and some last up to 20 times longer, than standard incandescent lamps. High light output comparable to, and in many cases exceeding incandescent lamps replaced. Excellent color rendering rare earth tri-phosphor provides such high-quality color you won't believe it's fluorescent. Many lamps use amalgam technology which provides stable lumen performance when operated in any position, over a wider, range of ambient temperatures.

I've only had this a few weeks so cannot say how long it will really last. Since GE is calling this a ceiling fan bulb I would expect it to be constructed a little heavier than most bulbs to resist the vibration typically found in celing fans.
Please note, this bulb is longer than a standard incandescent bulb and extends past the end of the decorative shade that I have placed it in. The diameter is pretty much the same size as an incandescent bulb but it is around 1" to 1 1/2" longer.
When first switched on, this bulb is VERY dim, about that of a low-watt night light. It is also slow to warm up taking nearly 2 minutes to come to full brightness. That is the sole reason I deducted one star. If you keep your house warmer than I do (about 65F in the winter) it may come to full brightness faster. This would not be a good choice in a room that is cool or cold in the winter.
This bulb is not only much bigger than the average candelabra incandescent and CFL, but it's also much larger than a standard CFL bulb with a normal sized base.
* Just beware that they are very bright. We have a kitchen fan that you can turn the lights up, down or sideways. We always keep these lights towards the ceiling because they are soooo bright. But we love them!
