Rated 5 out of 5 by gonzobent Great lightbulb
I love the full spectrum light this bulb gives off. The 23 watts is a bit stronger than a typical 100 watt bulb. One of these in a ceiling mounted fixture is enough to light up my daughter's whole room. They do generate more heat, so if you put them in an enclosed fixture, they will burn out in a few months. In an open fixture they will burn for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by john23 Bright - color can vary from bulb to bulb
I have a house with 4100K Neolites on the 1st floor, and 5000K Neolites in the basement. The 4100K turn on to full (well, probably "nearly full") brightness instantly, but the 5000K bulbs take some time to get there. Color is good, and they are small which is great. They seem to work fine in recessed cans without issue. 23W bulbs are noticeably brighter than all the others (I have 10, 13, 15, 20 in the basement), and color can vary more with a slightly greenish hue. Must build them a bit differently, but only I seem to notice it.
