Rated 2 out of 5 by CaliforniaGirl NOT FOR MY PURPOSE
There is nothing wrong with this bulb, in fact it looks great, but it's too bright to use as a make up mirror bulb. I currently have 22 incandescent G25 bulbs on a dimmer around my vanity mirror area. I replaced one incandescent bulb with the LED G25 and it gives off the same amount of light, but the inside light point (where the filament used to be) is so bright I can't look at it. My dimmer works with it, but I have to keep it on the lowest setting making the remaining 21 incandescent bulbs so dim they are useless. Maybe they could come up with a clear bulb that one can comfortably look toward without hurting one's eyes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Charlie3 Poor quality control
I bought two of these bulbs because they looked so similar to the ones I already had installed but they both burned out within two months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EndlessVision My clients are very pleased with the illumination of these bulbs.
The bulbs are great. They look very modern and classy. However, It Was Difficult to Locate a Modern Compatible Dimmer. After talking with the engineers at Archipelago, the compatible dimmer is rated for Incandescent Bulbs ONLY. Nevertheless, once my crew installed the cheap dial dimmer the functionality of the bulbs exceeded my expectations.
It is my opinion, the supplier of the bulb should have the knowledge and be able provide a list of compatible products or hardware. It's more than just buying a bulb.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidW11 Very pleasantly surprised
I had tried a number of LEDs that looked like this bulb in different sizes. Normally these bulbs were not bright enough. I was leery because of the low lumens. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with how this worked in my bathroom. My wife insists on good light with the right color in the bathroom. These bulbs have met her stamp of approval so far.
