Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pumpkinmonkey Hard-to-find bulb, with frosted glass back
I was lucky to find these bulbs; they are rare. Light 'bleeds' light through the back to light up the rear glass 'shade' of each lamp in my fixture. Standard GU-10s only project light through the front lens. They also have an integral UV filter with pretty thick protective glass. This is a big safety feature, especially in kitchens and bathrooms, as quartz-halogen bulbs tend to be fragile. They seem to be well made, and I hope they each burn at least a few years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thebighash I'll be using them until the right LED comes out!
I have 17 of those installed on track fixtures for just over a month and none has failed so far (fingers crossed). If I had to replace 2-3 per year I'll be good, but anything more than that would be unreasonable.
I tested a couple of LED options to replace those but I wasn't satisfied with the output. Especially that my living room fixtures look MUCH better with halogens that leak part of the light through the reflector (like those). I might swap to LEDs in the kitchen once I find the right product.
I just hate to stick to 50W halogens but using a dimmer and having an alternate light source make me feel a little better!

I've spent a lot of money replacing these bulbs only after 3-6 months which is ridiculous considering how much these cost in the first place. I'll be purchasing different bulbs the next time around.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ralph Bulbs don't work very long
This product is very disappointing. The bulbs are expensive to begin with. The bulbs don't last very long.... at all.

Burns out fast. After 7 years I have spent more on these bulbs than the fixtures. Show me another pass through reflector and I'll get those.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by handymanDan not bad, not amazing.
I like the nice, warm light. Plenty bright, but it seems like they burn out too quickly. If they lasted longer I would rate them excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NancyG They last a very long time.
I purchased the bulbs for my track lighting system in the kitchen they are on all day and a good share of the evening. They last a long time and I am pleased that Home Depot has the exact ones I need for my system. The price is right, it is a package deal with two other lamps included.

This product comes three in a pack and is easy to install. I find it to be expensive.
