Due to both the higher brightness and whiter color, this bulb has successfully replaced 100 watt equivalent warm white fluorescents I was using without loss of apparent brightness.<br /> Have made extensive use of four of these bulbs for over a year.

More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
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.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
