The ones our utility oh-so-helpfully installed in our bathroom take over a
minute to warm up. Just what you want in a room you spend maybe three
minutes in at a time. They also don't like being frequently switched on
and off, and have begun dying about six months after they were installed.
Color me unimpressed; I'll be replacing them with incandescent bulbs.
