I've never put them side-by-side, but we've been happy with 13 watt CFs replacing 60 watt incandescents. There's a definite start-up period - they are perceptibly dimmer for the first couple of minutes (maybe longer depending on the ambient temperature).

The size factor can be a big problem! We couldn't put CFs in one of our bedrooms because of that. Hmm - I should go check that - we've been getting some CFs from IKEA that are enough smaller that they might fit. The problem wasn't the base, it was the bulb size - IKEA is selling some that are the same form-factor as an incandescent except for the over-size base.
