Rated 1 out of 5Â by squakmatic These Bulbs fail all the time!
I bought two fixtures (6 bulbs total) that require this bulb for my kitchen. In less than two years I've already had to replace 3 of the 6 bulbs. At $7 per bulb this is much more expensive than if I used a standard bulb!
DO NOT BUY A FIXTURE THAT USES THESE BULBS!!!!

We moved into a newly renovated house and many of the fixtures require this light bulb. We have been here 3 months and 1 has already blown. Looked up where to purchase and now I am shocked at the price. Not looking forward to more blowing in the next few months.

I'm stuck buying these thanks to a fixture I purchased from another home improvement store.
The fixture is my primary lighting source in the kitchen and has 4 of these bulbs. If one goes out, you notice the difference, so I always keep an extra on hand.
The fixture runs probably 5 - 6 hours a day, every day. As per the specifications on HomeDepot.com, the manufacturer warranty is 10,000 hours. Figuring 5hrs X 7 Days = 35hrs / wk. These bulbs normally blow out in about 4 - 6 months at 35hrs/wk.
Finishing the math (if I did this correctly), 10,000 hrs / 35hrs/wk = approx 285 weeks that these bulbs should last. 285 weeks is 5.5years. If my math is correct, these are failing way before the manufacturer says they should.
My only problem is I always end up losing my receipts. The next time I purchase one, I need to remember where the receipt was.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by ALALAL Too expensive and too much of a hassle!
I bought a light fixture from the Home Depot and it came with one of these bulbs. The bulb lasted a little over a year. It should've lasted longer as the manufacturer states. I think these bulbs are too expensive and too much of a hassle. I am thinking of retrofitting the fixture to use the traditional screw-on bulb (since I have plenty of those).

I like the bright white of this light bulb. What's not to like about a light bulb?
