Reveal Energy Efficient Halogen bulbs are supposed to save energy while delivering a more brilliant natural illumination than regular incandescent bulbs.
I installed Reveal Energy Efficient Halogen bulbs in my living room and my bathroom to see if I could detect the difference. They do indeed provide more definition than the yellower light of regular incandescents and they project a more natural glow than fluorescent bulbs. The colors in my living room appear brighter and more defined. So the product does do what it claims to do. I would suggest buying one set of bulbs to try before investing in multiple packs to see if you like the effect. I prefer the lights in my bathroom, but have not gotten used to that particular light spectrum in my living room.

I purchased 2 4-packs for our new light fixtures in our bathroom for a remodel. These give off a great color and plenty of light. I did have one bulb fail already (about a week) but GE is replacing it. In response to the guy who leaves his light on 24 hours a day - do the math. The package says it will last 0.9 years at 3 hours a day. That is 985.5 hours. Leaving the bulb on for a month and a half is 1095 hours, so they actually performed quite well. I will purchase these again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JoeE Between CFLs and incandescent, the truth is Revealed
A familiar shape and instant full brightness are just two of the reasons to put these bulbs anywhere you need the light of a 100-watt bulb. Add a pleasing color balance that makes everything look more natural than cool white bulbs as well as 28 watts less energy consumption, and you're a step closer to lighting Nirvana.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Yellowjacket Great light quality, limited applications, not dimmable
This bulb easily lives up to its claims of providing clean beautiful light. It really makes colors pop in a room.
Although the packaging indicates a very warm color temperature, to my eyes it has somewhat of a bluish cast. I used the Reveal to replace an incandescent bulb in the top of a hurricane lamp with a lighted base. With the Reveal bulb, the top looked blue, and the bottom looked yellow; with the regular incandescent, they matched nicely. The lesson here is that you probably don't want to mix this lamp with other types of illumination in the same room.
I was disappointed that, according to the specs, the bulb is not dimmable. This further limits places where I can use it.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by tcmm1948 THIS IS A SHORT LIFE LIGHT BULD !
I LEAVE MY DINING ROOM LIGHT ON 24 HOURS A DAY , SO IF I WAKE UP DURING THE NIGHT I DO NOT HAVE TO STUMBLE AROUND TO FIND THE LIGHT SWITCH , I CAN JUST GET UP AND GET A DRINK OF WATER AND HEAD BACK TO BED ! OR IF I HEAR A NOISE I CAN GET UP TO SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING ! I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN AND I LIVE BY MYSELF ! SO I HAVE TO BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS !
THIS LIGHT BULB PUTS OUT ENOUGH SO I CAN SEE ! BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT ONLY LASTS ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF IF LEFT ON 24 HOURS A DAY ! AND I DON'T WANT TO KEEP BUYING LIGHT BULBS ESPECIALLY THESE TYPE , I WOULD RATHER BUY THE OLD INCADECENCE LIGHT BULB WHICH USUALLY LASTS 4 MONTHS ! SO I RATE THESE BULBS SORRY AS ALL GET OUT !
THEY ARE A WASTE OF MONEY , ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE LIMITED INCOME ! AS MOST SENIORS DO !
