The other bulb that this one arrived with arrived completely smashed. I was pleased that this one survived and I enjoyed it very much. It was great for photography and room lighting. However, one month later it simply stopped turning on. The lamp still tests good, the bulb is just dead. Perhaps its life got reduced during shipping, but that it still the seller's fault as both bulbs were inadequately packaged.
If you get one that lasts, it would make a good buy, but I'll never purchase another lightbulb online again. I buy 95% of my dry goods online, but this category apparently is not suited to it.
Thanks to some feedback that was left about the bulb, I gave the bulb another chance to see if it would come on. It does. I had tried it several times before when it quit working, but I didn't leave the electricity on and being unplugged seems to have done it good. The light is great when it works, but I certainly wouldn't use it as a bulb that you 100% relied on.
