Rated 1 out of 5Â by Homeowner High Failure Rate
I purchased these FEIT bulbs and have experienced an extremely high failure rate in a residential setting using standard fixtures and less than an hour's use a day. Typically these bulbs last less than a year.
I just called their customer service number since on the box they claim to warranty their bulbs for 2 years. The person I spoke to first blamed it on poor air flow around the bulbs. When I explained that some were inserted in a lamp socket with no shade around it. Others were in standard lamps well below their max wattage.
I went on to explain that since I had sensitive electronic equipment we had a whole house surge protector that is designed to eliminate surges and current fluctuations. So the lights weren't failing because of current spikes. So she went on to blame the whole house surge protector. I pointed out that it protected my equipment without problem and fluorescent light bulbs from other manufacturers continued to operate correctly without the high failure rate that FEIT bulbs had. This company does not stand behind their product

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RCBV Rapid failure in standard fixtures
When remodeling our Adult Family Home, we replaced all bulbs with these. Within 8 weeks we had 12 failures running the lights 14 hours per day--that's only 784 hours. At 6 months we've had 2 cases of failures (2500 hours). Feit said the bulbs are over heating in the standard ceiling dome light fixtures we have. They said they are intended to be in open lamps. Nowhere on the packaging does it say to only replace in open verticle lamps and CFL lights have been touted as being the preferred energy saving replacement. At this rate of failure, we're going back to incandescent.

Great product! These have outlasted just about every brand on the market. On a poultry farm where I use 256 CFL 23 watt bulbs these have become my favorite. And they hold up in an environment where dirt & dust gets as thick as peanut butter.

Just got 75 days out of one of these bulbs. At least, unlike others in the past, it didn't burst into flames when it died.
