                    They are bright...

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    I ordered two bulbs, one was burnt out upon arrival. Customer service said they had no more in stock but would get one from their supplier at no charge and it would arrive in 10 days.

                    It arrived perfectly in 10 days.

                    Excellent...!
