Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnc511 Very Bright "small Sun" for Dark Places
This was the perfect light for a dark tiled shower. I had tried CFLs up to 120 watt equivalent and they took so long to come on and then were just not very bright. This did the trick, bright and instant on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seattlecatgirl No More Dark Seattle House!!!
We live in Seattle, WA where it is often overcast and even on the rare sunny day, the big trees cast shadows onto our home and it is very dark, dreary and depressing inside. Short of moving to Florida, I knew something drastic had to be done. Having tried almost every light bulb known to mankind (halogen, CFL's, incandescent, etc.), nothing came close to adequately lighting our home... until this miracle bulb!!! To say we are thrilled is an understatement. The light is CRISP WHITE (no trace of warm yellow tones but not medicinal either), and beautifully BRIGHT, just like the sun. Hallelujah! The overhead cans actually look like miniature skylights.
The only hiccup is if you have existing dimmer switches, you will probably need to replace them with LED-compatible dimmers. We swpped ours out for the Lutron Diva Dimmer DVLV-600P-WH, which works great for 10 overhead cans. The light bulb manufacturer also has a list of LED-compatible dimmers on their website so you can see if your existing dimmer switch will work.
The bulbs are expensive, but are supposed to last 10 years and have a 4 year guarantee. Money well spent for our family!
