Fits all medium-base E27/E26 sockets. Pack of 4. Dimensions: Length: 7 inches; diameter: 3 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. ALZO warranty for all CFL bulbs is 30 days.

Service after the sale

Pros: Priced correctly
Cons: none at this time
Best Uses: Photographic lighting
Describe Yourself: Photo Enthusiast
I purchased a 45 watt CFL and upon receipt found the fluorescent tube loose within the base. I called customer support and explained what I received. ALZO digital shipped a replacement CFL within one day. They did not request the defective CFL to be returned. They believed what I said. Imagine a company with competitive prices and service after the sale. Sounds like a winning combo to me.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product

Pros: Good performance and color for the lumens and money
Cons: None
Best Uses: Video and color corrected photography with a POS
Describe Yourself: Occasional Photographer
I am using it for video in a DIY softbox. The lights are a little large but the same size as other 45 w CFLs. However, you can actively use them for video either as fill light or as a key with DIY barn doors. I would recommend as the color is right on and would certainly buy again. Just be sure to manually white balance.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great bulbs at a Great price

Pros: great price, flexible application
Best Uses: stills, studio, portrait
Describe Yourself: Photo Enthusiast
Using these bulbs in a photo booth application and they provide rich color on the subjects. Currently running 2 bulbs and they alloy me to shoot an f2.8 at 1/40th at about 1.5 meters through a diffuser. I will probably add a third bulb for a faster shutter. Cool running and low noise is also nice. Cannot comment on longevity as they have not been put through there paces time wise, but they deliver performance wise.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
