Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Does not fit
As others said, the glass at the base of the bulb widens too much to fit in a standard metal halide fixture. I brought my burnt out bulb and was fooled into thinking this was a match, but looking closer at the bulb you can see there is a small difference in diameter that prevents this base from screwing into the socket. Annoying! I thought these things were kept to some type of standard???

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by oldmanhandyman Parking lot light bulb
Home Depot asked me to review this purchase. It is a light bulb for a church parking lot. I screwed the bulb in and it lit up. It will burn for a few years(how long- I don't know yet) and then I will replace it again! It is a named brand- Philips
I am happy that HD still stocks some of these "less used" type bulbs and compared to internet prices their price point was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Metal Halide Bulb is a pulse start bulb
Pulse start should be listed in the specifications but it is not. Should only use with pulse start ballast to operate correctly. Packaging does state it is pulse start .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sl22 won't fit
Bulb would not fit my fixture. The glass portion right after the base enlarges and stops it from screwing in. I had to get a Sylvania brand elsewhere but i am not happy with that ones 3000 kelvin color temperature.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by david Although the description says mogul base, the part and product is medium base.
The bulb description and picture both indicate that this has a mogul base. When I received the part, the part number is correct but the base is medium. When I contacted the office they agreed that it should have been mogul. Now I have to find a local Home Depot to return it. I'm a very unhappy camper.
