Review of 973141
These bulbs are ok, but not perfected yet.
I purchased one about a year ago and it works as-advertized except for one area.
The product description states:
Compact fluorescent CFL bulbs use mercury and give off a humming sound, none of which is present with this LED.
This is a bold-faced lie. The geo-bulb II emits a humming sound louder than *ANY* CFL. I contacted C.Crane after purchasing and they said some sound was normal but sent me a replacement in case mine was defective. The replacement bulb made just as much sound as the first one.
The sound is not terribly loud, but forget about using it in a reading lamp. If you plan to use it in a ceiling height fixture and have high ceilings, you probably won't notice it. Mine works great as a front porch light, which I don't mind leaving on due to the energy savings.
