Best Uses
All around
I love these bulbs --- except when they don't work. I bought ten. One just flat out didn't work. Two had a buzz that persisted regardless of the fixture I used. I'll still buy more, but am annoyed that they can't get their quality control right. I'm assuming I will get somewhere between a 2/3 and 3/4 no defects yield ratio. The bulbs that were defective showed their defects almost immeiately; the ones that worked well at first are still going strong. Frustrating. I recommend them because even with their failure rate, they net out on a per unit basis as reasonably priced and good performers.

Fits In A Normal Fixture
Good Lighting
Makes noise
Best Uses
Bought six of these to replace six 60W incandescent bulbs in a six-bulb fixture that my children like to leave on for hours at a time in the bathroom. I changed out two so I could compare the new bulbs to the existing bulbs. The light they emitted was equivalent but they both made an annoying humming noise. One was louder than the other. Maybe it is the type of fixture I have. Had no idea that noise might be an issue.
