Eiko SP42/50K reviews

Spiral Fluorescent Lamp 40W/120V 5000K E26 Base is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good deal for the money We're using this bulb for our lightbox setup. It replaced a bulb that broke and is part of a pair. Unfortunately, the light provided by this bulb is not at bright as the other bulb in the pair. The color of the light is more yellow, like an incandescent bulb and not at all like the blue from the other one, so now we have a mismatched light source with one bulb being more like sunlight (the old bulb) and one with more of an indoor bright (the new one). The reasons I bought this bulb are: 1) It was the closest match I could find (the other bulb is not even being sold anymore), and 2) the price was right (but you get what you pay for, I guess.) If you are replacing a bulb in a set, I would suggest getting all the bulbs replaced so as to get an even light source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, Economical Daylight Source Super inexpensive and powerful, these spiral globes are now a regular part of my lighting package. I use them in a softbox rig holding up to 6 bulbs. These are a great way to add daylight punch with a very low wattage requirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am still getting use to it. Any problem with this bulb is on me. Next time out I will look at the 100 watt equiv. 150 watt equine it a ton of bright light which I'm not yet use to. I do not regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy & Convenient I really like the 40W personally. For my Portrait use, I use natural northern window light and the 40W as a fill. They give me exactly the balance light I'm looking for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NIce price, accurate to specs, however one out of three DOA Would give a higher rating if one of the three I received was not DOA. Except for that, this bulb performs according to its specs and it is nicely priced.
