These light bulbs arrived in a very secure and damage proof package, and were neatly,individually arranged in a cardboard box.
The design is such that they give upward light as well as downward light.
I tried them in various fittings, and was surprised by the amount of light they gave.
I would estimate equivalent to somewhere between 60 and 100 watts.
For the price, these are very good performance and price.
Cannot tell yet what length of life to expect from them, but will be well pleased if I get longer than 12 months, which is usually the lifespan for low energy bulbs that are used daily.
But, I am well pleased so far with my purchase, they seem very good value for money.
