Short life
Best Uses
When Left On All The Time
Comment:
These bulbs do not last any longer than the old type if you turn them on and off nomally. They do have a longer life span if you leave them on all the time but then you forgo the savings.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
