Can't find in any storeJun 14, 2009
By Rickey D. Shelton
We could not find this particular size (9 inch) circular bulb for our ceiling fan anywhere in town. We went to all the big hardware stores and even a couple of speciality lighting stores with no luck. I even contacted the maker of the ceiling fan and they said they had not heard of that bulb before. Now, how could that be since it is the only bulb that fits in their fan? Amazon is the only place I was able to find the bulb I needed. It is perfect, so we ordered a bunch of them have on hand. Thank you.

Works great, bright lightDec 06, 2009
Myself like many others have a Hampton Bay fan which takes this bulb. Unfortunately you couldn't buy a replacement buld for it even the day after you brought the fan home. Home Depot, Lowes, etc.. no one had the replacement bulbs.
The packaging was a little lax so when I opened the box to find the bulb OK I was relieved. I haven't had a light in my fan for over a year because I couldn't find the bulbs locally. Decided to check online somewhere and voila. Thank god Amazon had the exact one I needed.
Just FYI for those who have the TCP Circline Adapter you can actually unhook it from the fan and there is a regular bulb socket in the fan! You don't actually need the circular bulb. I didn't realize that until I saw the Circline Adapter here on Amazon under the "Recommended Products" thingy and it had a screw base in the diagram. Check it out.
I absolutely love the circular bulb style because of the way it lights the whole room evenly. Since I got the first one to make sure it works I'll be buying a couple more as spares.

Worth Purchasing AgainDec 07, 2009
Overall, I've been very satisfied with this bulb. I installed three of these about three years ago, and one of the three just burnt out, so the life-span has been pretty decent (the one that just died was being used in a bedroom shared by a 2-year old and 3-year old, and they both love to turn it on and off).
Pay attention to the color temperature. The three that I had previously purchased had the exact same model number, and were made by the same company, as the bulbs listed here, but were rated at 5100K. These bulbs are actually rated at 2850K, so it's important to look beyond the model number.

10,000-hours?Oct 27, 2013
By VT Fly Angler
We purchased a new light fixture and opted for an upgrade to these new energy saving 'long-lasting' 10,000-hr bulbs, They cast a nice light equal to an incandescent but only lasted 15-months in a typical kitchen overhead. The fixture across the room has a $1.29 bulb in it and is still going. So for a $10 replacement + $10 shipping we have 15x the price and shorter life than the old $1.29 bulb.

Very Poor Quality - 1 Star is Too ManyAug 31, 2013
The TCP 3500K Circline lightbulb is extremely poor quality. I unknowingly bought a fixture with this bulb in it about 2 years ago and couldn't buy a replacement bulb off the shelf when the original failed. I ordered this one (and exact replacement) but it didn't work right out of the box! It's ridiculously expensive for a bulb, the original only lasted a few years to begin with.
The other thing to beware of - the bulb was held into my fixture with cheap plastic clips. Even though I was careful removing the old bulb one of the 3 clips snapped off. After getting hot over and over the plastic is extremely brittle. In my opinion you shouldn't buy this bulb without also buying the complete set of workings, including the ballast and the clip assembly. It's just not worth the expense or the headache.
When the new bulb came and didn't work I returned it (thank you Amazon!) and replaced the fixture with a new one that takes normal screw in bulbs. I will be more careful in the future and avoid fixtures that take this bulb.
