Re: 3way CFLs

We have one 3-way CFL and it has worked fine for the 3 or so years we've had it....

Just checked.... It's made by GE, and has English and French writing on it.....

Thanks all, GE seems to be the consensus for quality,
Now to find out who sells them, didn't see them at HD or Lowes

I can't remember where we bought it, but it looks like WallMart carrys them:

I'll try and get more info from the lamp tonight...
I Know I didn't pay the price that is listed in the link....
I doubt I paid anything over $18-20 maximum.

I think these are what I have, and the price is right:

I believe that the $59 Walmart listing is what I have. It appears that the price listed is for six bulbs, which does not seem too bad for 3-way. Walmart was out the last time I bought (New Lamp) but I found some at a Publix grocery store.

Sams club sell the Ge 3 way bulbs and I have had good success with them. I think they were 16$ for a pack of 2.

FWIW, all the three way CFLs I have dealt with are medium, low, high when clicking through the ranges.

I seem to remember that from those I used to have too.

However I visited a friend yesterday that has one of those 3-way CFLs and it definitely clicked through low-medium-high. There was no easy to recognize branding on the bulb but I could only see it partially (I didn't think it would be appropriate to take the lampshade off).
