I put 2 of these in my overhead microwave, and it is so much brighter & much easier on the eyes when
cooking over the stove. They were also a lot less at Home Depot than Amazon.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SavvyCat Didn't last very long...
I always try to be fair. Truthfully, I have no way of knowing if this is the fault of the bulb or of my appliance, but here goes: I have an over-the-range microwave that uses these bulbs. After over a year of regular daily use, the manufacturer's bulb died. It more than died--it totally came apart.
I purchased this bulb as a replacement as the only one I could find. While it didn't fall apart like the original bulb, it burned out after just a few months. Allowing for a fluke, I bought another. Disappointingly, it, too, burned out after only a few months.
I accidentally purchased a couple of the lesser watt bulbs and decided to keep them for emergencies. One of them is installed right now and is on its second month. Whether it can last through a third month like its 40 watt brother only time will tell. However, I will be looking for a greater watt replacement of another brand to test my Philips theory. What I have now is no better than a nightlight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jomegatau Inexpensive and fits my Maytag Model # MMV4205DS IOver the Range Microwave
The GE equivalent retails for $20 yet this is $4. Its also cheaper than the Feit model. Its a little too long for my Microhood but barely fits. So I am happy because the FEIT is 50% more money. These bulbs only last 1000hrs so I can not give it a 5 start. Expect to replace them every 3 - 12 months depeinding upon usage. For me this light is used all of the time 8-(.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RFinOKC Lasts less than 2 months
Same a review earlier this year. I have an over stove GE microwave and about to buy the 3rd set of replacement 120 volt 40 watt bulbs. Previous replacements last less than 2 months. Have just been doing without most of the last year. On the off chance that this was just a bad run for these bulbs and the issue has been corrected, here I go again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mawmaw Life of this bulb leaves a lot to be desired
This is the THIRD bulb I have put in my microwave (surface light) in less than 2 weeks. The first time I thought I may have bought a bad bulb but after getting up this morning & yet another one burned out already, I don't think that is the case.
