Used for a bedside lamp - so far so good,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The previous 'low energy' bulbs I've used have had all that annoying lag phase where the light slowly increases, whereas this one doesn't, so that's worth one star at least. The bulb itself looks stylish, although mine had an odd white powdery residue on the bottom which I was able to scrape off with my fingernails. Probably a harmless by-effect of the manufacturing process but it could have been cleaned a little better!
The slightly blueish hue means that the glow produced by the bulb isn't quite as warm as I'd hoped, but a good lampshade will counteract this (unless you're using it in a chandelier-type light I guess), although you will end up with a focused beam of light on the ceiling despite good dispersal of light otherwise.
The price for this single bulb does seem a little on the dear side, but I would expect the saving made on electricity to eventually work out to a financial saving in real terms compared to buying a cheaper, less efficient bulb.
