Also, these are the old version. For the price Amazon is offering these ($70), you can buy the new version, which is more efficient and brighter (Geo3)
Update: after 2 1/2 years the bulbs are still perfect. Made in America, not China, and the quality & durability shows.
Three year anniversary: The bulbs are still burning bright! Give this "Made in America" company a chance.
Anyway, I would visually approximate the output of the geobulb II "soft" version to be equivalent to a 45-50 watt incandescent bulb. In many locations, this will not be a problem. But if you need the 800 lumens that a 60 watt "soft white" incandescent puts out, it's not there. In the Geobulb, it is fairly directional, so if you need most of your light shining away from the base, that will help.
This and all LED bulbs are for those who are willing to subsidize a better future (I've bought 6 so far). Pay back is years down the road by 4-5 years by my calcs, having paid ~$55.00 for it here on Amazon. But it will be the folks who purchase these bulbs now that bring the killer good and less expensive LEDs to all of us sooner.
Other good features on the Geobulb: Comes on immediately (even when cold), lasts many years, has a 3 year warranty.
13 April 2010 Update: I think it's very important to know where things I purchase are made. Geobulb II is made in China, but alas, I can't see where any of the other 4 brands of LED bulbs I've purchased are made in the USA either. Bummer.
Also, there seems to be little third party specifications associated with this new technology in lighting. C. Crane seems to have done a pretty good job, but many other bulbs and manufacturers specs offer little to accurately compare the various characteristics of the light a source emits. "Soft white", "cool", "daylight" are subjective descriptions... all these should be expressed as degrees Kelvin, E.G. : 3100K.

Well well well. $82 to $90 flickering dollars. AmazingZon. Given the price and "reliability" "liability" I shall pass these LEDs and CFLs up for a while; maybe for a year or so and... Read morePublished on July 24, 2011 by sometimes savy
This bulb fit into my ceiling fan out on my porch. It emits a great daylight-quality light. My neighbors have noticed and admired it.Published on April 6, 2010 by Charlene Clark
