Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ahc12 My Halogen experience
These lights are very expensive , but I think they are worth it for several reasons.
1- They last @ least 10 years, per the warranty, at my age I will not have to replace any.
2-You get 100% light immediately.
3-The daylight bulbs replicate daylight very well, my wife likes them. When momma is happy, everybody is happy.
4-The electric use is much lower than incandescent & some what lower than fluorescent which has a much shorter life. Thus they operate at a much lower temp.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Birddog The last bulb burned out after only 8 months; the original lasted 10 years
This is the second time I've replaced this bulb in the past eight months. The original bulb in this lamp worked without any problems for over 10 years. Guess the quality of what we buy these days isn't what it used to be.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dick Last one stopped working before I even paid my HD bill.
I have had this kitchen light fixture for about eight years and the bulbs have always lasted one to one and a half years.
I replaced the bulb with one I purchased at Home Depot on June 16, 2015.
It lasted less than a month. I bought a new one on July 16, 2015,also at Home Depot.
If this one does the same, I'll find a new place to shop.
Hope to hear from someone from Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HalogenBulbT3 Luckily I kept the installation booklet
My receipt says I bought the Dual Brite Security Light in July 2008. It's a great dusk to dawn / motion light. Unfortunately the light went out this July 2014 - 6 years later. Home Depot no longer carries the light. I would never have found the replacement bulb without the help of two Home Depot associates.
I followed the instructions on the package and I was able to carefully handle the bulb using gloves. After a couple of failed attempts, I finally got the bulb installed correctly in the fixture - it wasn't easy. But I really like the fixture and now that I've replaced the bulb, I hope to get another 6 years of service out of this single bulb. Wonderful product and great help from the Home Depot associates.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyBravo Coolest item available everywhere
Only grudge I have is a lot of us have the teeny tiny 150 watt version so space is limited, seems the LED brands that are out there may not fit inside the fixture unless the LED is the same dimensions as the halogen

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by inthedark Didn't last long
Bought this light bulb in August of 2014 and it burned out in January 2015. Bulb worked well until failure, and was not abused in any way. Most of the filament looked like new under a microscope, but there was a burned out spot near where the filament enters the glass at the end of the bulb. Probably a defect in manufacture. The bulb is warranteed by Philips for 1.8 years, but I no longer have the original receipt, and return of the broken bulb is required. Would likely cost more to get a replacement than buying a new bulb. I will try another manufacturer for a replacement.
