I fear some sleaze-bag lawyer will make a fortune on a class action lawsuit against GE on basis of these bulbs, and you and I will be offered a check for $1.50:
I live in a 7 year old townhouse, with about 20 canister style lights throughout the house. 2-3 years ago, predictably, the original incandescent light bulbs started burning out, and I made the unfortunate mistake of replacing them with CFs, most of them the GE bulbs, since they were readily available at the Grocery store, Target and/or Home Depot (I honestly don't remember where I bought them, but it was NOT Amazon, nor Mr. Moto).
I'm typing this after taking out yet another bulb. While it worked, for as short as it did (less than half the length of its incandescent predecessor) it was slow to turn on, and dimmer than advertised. Now it's in a pile along with 5 other CFs - ALL of which are GE FLE15s, waiting to be taken to some hazardous waste site.
Cheaper OLEDs can't get here fast enough, in the meantime stay far away from this garbage.
Have another brand CFL in three identical adjacent fixtures, outlasted these 3:1 (so far). I put the GE bulbs in because the prior 'batch' of the 3/6 had failed after two years on their 5-year estimated life.
Still have incandescent in a nearby identical fixture working after 10 years. It's hard to get to, so I won't change it until it fails.
