Rated 5 out of 5 by Frosty Very bright light purchased for a pole barn.
I only tested these lights after receiving them. They are very bright. They all took a short time to reach full brightness at about 60 degrees. I still need to wire the pole barn and will give a full review at a later date. These are made to work in cold weather and hope they do. I researched the best way to light a pole barn that is not heated or cooled. An electrician recommended using these large CFL bulbs. It will be very easy and inexpensive to hang these lights in the barn. I only need to wire standard basement type light fixtures without any reflectors. Three of them will only use 315 watts of power. This was my first purchase from 1000bulbs.com, but it will not be my last. Shipped quickly and well packaged.

These are fantastic. With a small reflector these make as much if not more light than the 400 watt high bay lights in my workshop (16 foot ceilings). The high bays will all get gutted and fitted with medium bases so I can install these bulbs. It will be interesting to see one of these in the big high bay reflector, and what effect the diffusers make... I will report back. Shipping was quick and the bulbs are very well packaged. I'll be ordering more when I get more fixtures converted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldnblind Awsome bright light.
Pair this bulb with the R100 reflector and be ready to wear your sunglasses! I installed 6 of this combo in a 27' X 54' @ 14' high. The brightness and color rendering on the deck are outstanding. All bulbs worked fine right out of the box and shipping was quick.

This lightbulb is worth it. Although it won't fit most fixtures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeC I like the light output and color range of these bulbs
Really like these lights, unfortunately didn't have great luck with the bulbs I received on the first delivery for each of my two orders. The first order was for 3 medium base and 3 mogul base. Mogul base worked 3 for 3, Medium base 2 out of 3 worked, 1000 bulbs sent replacement no problem, no hassle. Second order was for 10 medium base and I tested them at the shop before installing all 10 lit, I ran each one for a couple minutes each. Installed them at the site (a gas station) they all worked. Within one week I had to go to the site because of lights out, 9 out of 10 bulbs had failed. I contacted 1000 bulbs again they sent replacements no problem, no hassle Excellent customer service they sent them 2 day no charge, unfortunately they were ordered on wed. evening and they didn't arrive until monday afternoon. All bulbs had been pretested and so far so good. The 2 bulbs from the original order have had no issues and have been in use for 5+ months.
