Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect fit The light fits in my microwave perfectly. It's wonderful to have light again. December 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 24, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The bulb is great! This bulb is used in our microwave oven, and at times my husband leaves the light on all night; we have not had any trouble with this product. July 5, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 17, 2011
