Works as described. My electric is going down. Be carefule with placement in regards to pets as CFL bulbs are not something you want broken.
GE Long Life Soft White Energy Smart Spiral T4 CFL
Pros: eco friendly
Cons: sort of dim
These are ok as far as these lights go, I think we will try a cheaper option next time around, i wasn't teriibly impressed, but they aren't bad working or anything either
Pros: energy saving
Cons: not bright as incandescent, harsh color temp
I must say I was dissapointed in this bulb. In comparison to the incadescent three way bulb, this one was not as brigh - even on the 29w setting.
Also, the first one I bought had a really short life span. Faulty certainly.
Worst of all, IMO, is the somewhat harsh color temperature. I find that GE bulb lean more toward daylight amber than soft white. Not my favorit.
Yes, its a great energy saver in contrast to a 15ow bulb, but the buyer must put up with a few drawback.
Pros: We like soft white coloring as opposed to bright white bulbs. Our sons like the 3 Way option for studing and watching television.
Cons: As of yet, I haven't any negative comments!
We have these in almost every lamp in our home. The soft white bulb with the 3 way choice is our favorite!
Now, even my dad and sister use them! Thanks,Cindi
