Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Thank you! Decided to try your business for bulbs and LOVE this one! I'm diabetic and need bright light which this bulb certainly provides. I use it in a floor lamp that previously had a 150 "regular" light bulb (I had no idea the state of California has now outlawed them!) and 3 smaller 60 watt bulbs. This bulb, which provides light equal to a 150 watt bulb is perfect! In fact, I discovered that white light is exactly what I needed. This bulb makes the other 3 smaller wattage bulbs look -yellow- whereas previously, they appeared white. The difference this bulb makes is tremendous. But I must say that the young lady who helped me with the ordering was equally as bright and helpful! KUDOS! I'll be back! Cate November 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1000bulbs.com made shopping for hard to find bulbs quick and easy. I was a bit concerned about ordering light bulbs via the mail but was impressed when I received my bulbs as the packaging was secure and the shipping was fast. It seemed a bit pricey at first thought but considering the time and money that I saved in running around shopping, it was well worth it! April 2, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by great bulb for the money The price I paid was cheaper than I could find locally and it's a full spectrum light which I prefer. April 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great! I ordered for growing indoor plants and when I got it in the mail, It didn't turn on and tried multiple lamps to make sure and sure enough defective but when I sent an RMA request, they immediately sent me a new one and works perfectly. The great customer service made it worth while. Thank you! July 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by very effective for plant vegging I love this CFL! Really bright and stays very cool for the output. However, be prepared, as this bulb is large and may not fit some fixtures. For horticulture uses, this bulb rocks because you can place it quite close to your plants without risk of burning them. I would recommend for sure! May 11, 2012
