Big, bright, quiet,

This review is from: Square Perfect 3078 Professional Quality 65-Watt Compact Fluorescent Full Spectrum Photo Bulb (Electronics)
Very bright white light. Quite big, at 9-1/2" tall and 3-1/8" diameter. If I put my ear right next to it, I can barely hear it hum/buzz (no, I'm not deaf). The first time I turned it on it started out dim and took a couple minutes to reach full brightness, but after that it starts out almost full brightness immediately from a cold start.
My bulb actually only uses 44W. This is fine for me, as it is plenty bright, but it is not going to be as bright as you might expect a 65W bulb to be. (This is apparently common for fluorescent bulbs; I also have a 9W that actually uses 13W, and a 27W that uses 20W).
