Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cold and plenty of light, Bright bulb, cold light. Only problem encountered was the height. Would not fit in my ceiling globes; used in floor lamps after purchasing a replacement 11 inch harp. Check bulb dimensions and your application before ordering. Light spectrum can be "warmed" with off white lamp shade. February 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product is great when it works, but each of my 2 orders I have had atleast 2 of 24 bulbs that don't work straight out of the package. 1000 bulbs makes it right by re-shipping replacements. January 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great light for a large garage or space good light for the workshop, garage, attic that's economical and works! June 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good light Used a couple of months...excellent light in my shop.. Considerably larger than an incandescent. May 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value! We purchased these bulbs to replace 250 watt incadescent bulbs. Love to save energy and get a whiter look! April 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent replacement for a 200 watt incandescent. I have replaced 16 200 watt incandescent bulbs with these bulbs and they have proven to put out more light and be longer lasting. There is not much difference in price from what I was paying locally for the incandescent bulbs than what I am paying for these bulbs from 1000 Bulbs, and these lasts at least 5 times longer. Customer service is so good that if they were less expensive somewhere else I would not change suppliers. February 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of light for the money These bulbs are a great retrofit for older buildings with old style bulb sockets. They are very bright! These CFLs will change you opinion of the weak light light given off by many lesser bulbs. You don't want to look directly at this when it is powered up! October 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My inside plants seem to love this light. I'm not a CFL expert yet, but I've been using these particular (6) bulbs for eighteen hrs/day, every day for about 8-9 months now. The one and only bulb to fail so far did so roughly within 60-90 days of purchase. I honestly don't remember how I contacted 1000bulbs cs department, but shortly afterwards I received a warranty replacement bulb at no cost to me. Very painless. I wish freight were cheaper, but overall 1000bulbs seems competitive and I will most likely order from them again. Also, I am considering spending more money to try a few 6500k bulbs with the current 5000k ones. Not sure if I bought my HID bulb from them or not., but they seem competitive on these also.
