Good news: After about one year usage, total swapout in the home, I am used to living with these, slow start + subdued illumination.
Bad news: Three have died. Estimate 10%, 3 of 30 total CFBs in house.
Anecdotal survey but a real road test.
Result: green bulbs have a shorter life than incans so I am not recouping my investment & have disposal issue. However, I probably won't go back to incans just yet.
Usually get my bulbs from Costco but perhaps some ringers got into the mix.
PS: I've installed GID bands around the bases of strategic compacts to navigate by when lights are switched off. I figure that incans would have melted these on day one.
