Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and bright at a good price. Replaced an odd-ball bulb in my chandelier. Be sure to wear gloves while doing this so you don't get oils from your skin on the bulb. These get really hot and the oils cause them to burn out quite quickly. February 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not recommended The description says it lasts 1.8 years based on 3 hours per day. That should probably be updated to say they actually last more like 1.8 MONTHS based on 3 MINUTES per day.....awful. We installed these in our bathroom sconces over the last weekend of July and one has already burned out. August 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very bright little light bulb. This purchase was a replacement for the same bulb purchased a week prior. I initially purchased 6 of these for a new lamp and one burned out within a week. Other than that great little light bulb. March 26, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very short lifespan I bought two of these bulbs for additional vanity lighting in our newly-remodeled bathroom. One of the bulbs burned out after approximately 2 minutes of use. Needless to say, I'm not very happy with the quality. They're also not very bright, which isn't a problem for me, but just thought I'd mention. The other bulb still works fine so maybe I just got a bad one. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bright lights Although they are a bit expensive, they provide bright light which is what we needed, so I am happy with this purchase. February 25, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Do not touch the bulbs! My bath room vanity has two fixtures using these bulbs. Electrician put them in. Three bulbs (out of five) went out in three weeks. Rather annoying. Replaced them and these lasted two months. THEN, I found out you cannot touch these bulbs with your fingers because the oil in your hands will cause them to burn out quickly. Why don't they tell you that?? Not easy to get to them in tight spaces with gloves! I have no choice so will give it a try. Hope this helps others with this problem. August 26, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frequent outage Under the cabinet fixture. Have been careful to not touch bulb with fingers, but they still burn out regularly. I have not kept track of how many I have replaced in the 18 months - all of them at least once or twice. should I be having a different wattage? Sounds like a common problem. They give a nice light, though, but costly! July 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hard to find I purchased two very cool light fixtures for my kitchen. One has been up and working wonderful for 2 1/2 years. It had been the only light for my kitchen.I have finally just installed the second light and they both require these bulbs. I am just now dealing with my first bulb outage and to my surprize no place locally cares this bulb.Since I had originally purchased them online with home depot I just assumed I would be able to order the replacement bulbs online ( we do not have a local home depot)but for some reason they only sell them in their stores. This is something that they should have to let people know who are purchasing online. If I would have been aware of this I would not have purchased them. Now I am stuck with two light fixtures( that where expensive) that I can not get new bulbs for.Thank you Home Depot (note) the bulbs worked just as they should. If the oil from your hands touches the bulb they will burn out very fast you must wear a glove when installing them. January 29, 2012
