Rated 5 out of 5 by Webtest You've got to try these bulbs!!!
Polaroid A17 LED PLOA17-40.325.6.1S (40 watt equiv.)
A year or so ago I put some small globe 9 watt CFL bulbs in our bedroom ceiling fan fixture, and though they eventually light up good and bright, they take an aggravatingly long time to warm up to full brilliance. I mean REALLY aggravating. I think I've finally found a great cost-effective replacement.
These Polaroid 6 watt LED bulbs, at only 2/3 the power of the CFLs, are bright, they are INSTANT ON, they have a great color (not yellowish or blueish, but a nice soft white), they are absolutely SILENT, and they are an OUTSTANDING value. Actually, with 4 of them in the light fixture, the only improvement I could wish for is for them to be dimmable. I bought 6 to try them and I am really pleased with them.
If I leave one on 24/7/365, theory has it that you'll have to check back sometime after 4th of July in 2018 for a longevity update to this review! (written 12/19/2013)
