I love IKEA, and their products are generally inexpensive. I too bought a cool cheap lamp there, only to discover that it needs very odd bulbs, in terms of the tiny E12 base and a narrow shape to fit inside the fixture and shade connection. I think IKEA sells the lamp cheap to hook you into paying for these outrageously priced specialty bulbs. HOWEVER you can instead visit that well-known auction site and pay 99 cents for a E12-to-E27 socket converter that will allow you to use incandescent or fluorescent bulbs with a standard size base. The converter is cheap and shipped for free. Easy to find on that "bay" well-known auction site.

I have a pretty paper Ikea lamp that looks a bit like a woman's torso got combined with a Japanese paper lantern by some evil scientist. It's a floor lamp and it sits in the corner of the bedroom to provide some soft lighting and a nice decorative effect along with my Chinese paintings.

However, you need a special light bulb for the lamp; not a standard socket and these are what you need. The name "Sparsam" seems to be Swedish for "save money" but you don't on the price of the bulb that is for sure. You do save on energy. And on light output; they are dim bulbs, indeed. I just can't cotton to the new non-incandescent lighting. None of it seems to really work for me and for reading, I have an Ott-Lite to really give me enough to see by.

One other issue; the textured coating of the bulbs gathers dust in a big way. I have to wipe these down with a dampish cloth rather frequently.

I don't love these bulbs, but as long as I own this decorative lamp, I'm kind of stuck. At least I can find them here and not have to trudge 100 miles to the nearest Ikea and wander through its vastness.

Nothing much to say. I bought some bulbs, the bulbs I bought arrived. They work great.

Apparently I have to say more...these CFL bulbs are low wattage while being bright. I generally don't like the harsh white lighting from fluorescents, and these are no exception. However, since they're mounted in an Ikea Orgel lamp the light passes through a layer of paper which changes it to a soft and gentle autumnal glow.

I purchased this online because I didn't want to drive to Ikea. The other reviewers are correct in saying that you save a bit buying at Ikea but not buying these light bulbs. They're not cheap. I gave them three stars because the original one I had when I bought the lamp shone brightly, while this one seems to run at half-light. Not sure that's a word, but the light isn't as bright and when I first turn it on, I'm still sort of squinting to see. Maybe it's energy efficient lighting. I didn't have other options when buying it though as I had no light in my hallway for over a week. Next time I will try and research the same bulb but a higher wattage.

They are very good bulbs. They give me just enough light to provide light for me to get up during the night. I use them in my wall mounted, side lamp. I don't use them to read. At the time of purchase I did not know where to get the bulbs locally. I have since found them at a local hardware store at a lower price without shipping. However, these would be a good buy if you are in a remote location and the cost of driving would make it better to purchase by mail.

The items were well packaged, the shipping was fast, and the items arrived in perfect condition.

I am very satisfied with these bulbs. I use them in 6 lamps that sit on top of bookselves in my library / reading room (9 x 10 feet). 6 lamps completely lights the room enough to preserve the books but still be bright enough to read.

I got these for lamps I got on Amazon. They arrived in one piece, which it much better then I can say for the others I ordered, and they work just fine in the lamps. Yes they are more expensive then regular bulbs, but those regular bulbs will be out of production by January 2014 so we'll all have t use these sooner or later. And really - for the price - you are getting a bulb that last YEARS longer then regular ones. So in my opinion - these are worth the price! I'd recommend!
