The bulb is exactly as described on the MITB website; the glass (real glass, not polycarbonate like in some other LED bulbs) is asymmetrical and drawn into a point, making it look more like a candle than traditional bulbs. You can see it in my picture; ignore all the other traditional CFL bulbs (also ignore the dust on my chandelier; maybe I should clean it someday). Anyway, it lights up instantly, unlike the old CFL bulbs (which start up a dull yellow colour before reaching maximum brightness) and it looks nicer, and it's slightly brighter.
Now that I know it looks good, I'll replace all of the bulbs with LED bulbs from MITB, which cost about half the price of similar LED bulbs here in Ireland.
Yet again, another successful order from MITB; good product, free delivery, great price.
