Rated 5 out of 5 by Atlclimber Big bright bulbs
These bulbs are great, but just keep in mind they are 100watt equivalents and they are large. They are too big to put in some of my enclosed fixtures. I should have known better. Where I have been able to use them I've been very happy with their performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewShockerGuy Nice Bulbs
I just recieved my order that I placed. Very fast! I like these bulbs. They are lighter than my other CFL's and also smaller. There is a SLIGHT delay when I flip the switch on for the lights before they illuminate, and it takes probably about 20 seconds for full brightness but they are in my garage and that honestly doesn't matter to me.
Right now I am running just the two bulbs in my garage. I ordered the two light bulb adaptor and was happy with having 4 lights total in my garage (2 per outlet)
Seeking more light I am ordering more of these bulbs and I just picked up a quad light bulb adaptor. 4 bulbs to 1 socket. The adaptor is rated at 45watts per socket.. so having 23 watt bulbs in each socket I feel there should be no issue.
Cant wait to use more of these bulbs for the garage.. The light it produces is on the blue side but not blue to the point where your eyes hurt... it's like pure light. Think of operating room or clean room environment...

Rated 5 out of 5 by BATAM1 Light is Bright Sunshine-like and Excellent for detail work
I purchased 18 of these FC23-FEIIS23W50 23 Watt - T2 CFL - 100 W Equal - 5000K Full Spectrum; I looked for 5000K Full Spectrum CFL everywhere and even Walmart did not have them, whenever found them (23-Watt or Higher), their prices PLUS SHIPPING Fees were outrageous, 1000Bulbs has the best price anywhere.
These 23W 5000K will be replacing all 75 Watt PAR30 Floodlights at a savings of 52Watts per bulb a very little Heat Dissipation.
Light is Bright Sunshine-like and Excellent for detail work; they sure make the bathroom come alive. These Bulbs are just shy of 4.5” Long. When installing them you have to grab them from the White Ballast Housing, as their hallow glass tube (the CFL lamp itself) will not take any amount of pressure.
Will I buy again? You bet

Rated 5 out of 5 by CandyAddict Very bright and High Quality
I bought these for my retail store to replce the ones I was getting from home depot. The Home Depot ones were burning out very quickly and the color of the bulbs was never the same.
These CFL from 1000bulbs are very bright and they all have the same color. I installed 12 of them and it's been a few months now and all of them are still working.
I have used this company for other lighing products prior and have been very happy with thier product quality and customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuonsetKitty Smallest 100W Equivalent I Could Find
My low profile garage fixtures would not accomodate any other 100W equivalent CFL bulbs, because they were all too big. These CFLs are much smaller, particularly in length, so they fit in my low fixtures nicely. I also like the white, sun-like color they produce in the garage. They are quick to start, but take about 20 seconds to come to full brightness. They are plenty bright initially, so nothing to complain about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saltmarsh These 23 watt cfls make great shop lights
I wanted to brighten up my shop, and these bulbs really did the trick. It's just like daylight and great to work under. I have to say these people have their act together on shipping. Each bulb was individually boxed. If I were a bulb I'd want this company to ship me. Give them a try.
