Maybe I'm Lucky
on February 16, 2012
I actually originally bought the Feit Electric bulbs from a brick and mortar, but they were no longer selling them when I needed more. The only reason I needed more was because one (out of the many) of the bulbs blew out. I had used all the bulbs I had available around my house because I liked them so much.
I haven't had an issue with the bulbs going out, as other reviewers have stated. As with all CFLs, I'm sure the bulbs are affected by quick cycling (<15 mins on).
I HAVE had an issue with the intensity of the light dying over the first few weeks and then stabilizing. I'd say that initially the bulb gives off 100% light, and as it is used, it slowly stabilizes to around 80%. This is an issue I've seen with every CFL I've used, but I've heard that newer ones address this, and I want to inform you that as far as I can tell, this bulb does NOT.
Overall, these CFLs are the best value for daylight bulbs that I've found. I really prefer to have "white" light, not the "yellow" light that most bulbs have. If that sounds like you, then I'd say these are your bulbs.
