85 watt fluorescent light bulb, super bright with 5500K color temperature and 4250 Lumens output, CRI of 91, 120V. This is an energy-saving bulb with about 6,000 hours bulb life. Fits all medium-base E27/E26 sockets. Dimensions: Length: 10.5 inches; diameter: 3.9 inches; diameter of socket: 1 inch. Important: ALZO CFL bulb life is based on the bulb in an open-air upright orientation. When bulbs are installed in fixtures that lack adequate ventilation, the life of the bulb will be reduced. If an ALZO CFL bulb is installed in an overhead recessed light fixture with the bulb glass below the base, the life of the bulb will be greatly reduced.

Great Bulbs!

Pros: Great Quality Light, affordable
Cons: None so far
Best Uses: Video / Photo
Describe Yourself: Occasional Photographer
Very good color for photography. In spite of that it is indicated 5500K, we must use manual white balance with grey card at 18%, under these conditions we obtain very good performance. Other things considerable. Negligible heat, and consume very little amperage. Very satisfied with my purchase. I recommend it to others.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Brilliant multipurpose bulb

Pros: Quality of light, brightness, even distribution of light
Cons: Price, bulkiness/heaviness
Best Uses: Filling a room with clean daylight.
Describe Yourself: Occasional Photographer
I bought this bulb not for any professional purpose, but because I wanted to brighten up my dorm room during the dark winter months; the dim, yellowish overhead lights weren't cutting it. The first thing I noticed was how huge this bulb is. The base of this bulb alone was bigger than my old bulb. This bulb will fill any room with bright, clean light. Since it only uses 80-some watts, I can use it in my old floor lamp, even though it puts out as much light as an incandescent 300-watt bulb would. I am very impressed with it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
