Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristopherCFL Instant-on and pleasing light
My kitchen has a ceiling fixture for a FC12T9 bulb surrounding a smaller FC8T9. I used to buy the GE circlines from my local hardware store but they resulted in an almost blinding, stadium-type light. The 4100K color temperature is the same as the GE, but this bulb is much less harsh, and I find when combined with the FC8T9 in 3000K, it gives a very usable light with a hint of warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuester Hard to find Circline bulbs at a great price!
I have four custom-made "windows" in a windowless room with a 40 watt and a 32 watt circline bulb behind fogged glass in each one. Gives a faux daylight-streaming-through-the-window effect and is quite striking. Then one blew out and i noticed the rest were fading, I decided I might as well replace all of them so the light intensity would be the same in each "window."
But finding the right replacement bulbs in any local store proved impossible. And expensive. Sure they would order them, but that would take a week or so. Some were in stock but not four sets of them. Some places had the 32s but not the 40s ... and vice-versa,
I came home and looked for them on 1000 bulbs. They not only had the exact replacement size and wattage, but the bulbs were around 3x cheaper!
So far, these are better than the originals.
