Pay back time The time in years till a bulb will start to save money when compared to an equivalent incandescent bulb. (For this comparison one year equals 1095 hours or 3 hours per day of use.)
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.

A sales clerk at Home Depot recently told me that you should NOT combine incandescent and CFL or LED bulbs in the same fixture and mentioned that it is stated right on the packaging. This may be the source of your problem and hence poor review.

Less Than 20 At Costco
Very Satisfied With Color

This is not recommended because of price. I paid less than $20 for mine so price is not a good reason to not recommend this bulb. I have used them all over the house and outside.
