Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by deadshift Nice, a little blue
A little pricier than I'd like. And I think Philips is overstating it a little when they say it's a 50w equivalent. But it's nearly as bright, only slightly narrower beam. It's not as pretty as the halogen bulbs as there is no backlight to illuminate the frosted glass shrouds. They dim nicely, but the blue becomes stark blue compared to halogen when dimmed, as the halogen turns almost orange, the LED remains "bright white." I may be using LED in the summer and Halogen in the winter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Warnekid Excellent product, very bright
Performance better than expected. Very bright and is significantly cooler than halogen. They are so bright our cats sit in the brightest spot of light on the carpet 8' from bulb seeking the small amount of heat projected. The beam seems tighter that the halogen flood and has great color - I notice a slight "blueing" effect at the outermost edges of the spot that may be pronounced due to a very white carpet. I should have tried the 35W version of this bulb in our ceiling fixture first because it seems too bright undimmed. A proper dimmer for these seems to be ~$90.

These Bulbs are a little Expensive but Wow are they Great . Replaced 2 Halogen Bulbs 50 Watts A Piece And they got Very Hot. These are cool to the touch & only use 6 Watts Each & are just as Bright as the 50 Watt Halogens Would Highly Recommend Them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff didn't last
these bulbs are supposed to last 22 years. Mine lasted 5-6 months,at aprice of $22.00 not a good deal. I'd be happy with 5 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zach Exactly what I wanted and needed
I bought one of these bulbs to replace a 50 watt halogen bulb in a track light, and I must say that I am quite pleased. There are many reasons I like this bulb, so I'll just list them off. 1: The light is the EXACT same color as a halogen bulb. 2: It only pulls 6 watts instead of 50. 3: The brightness is right on par with the bulb I replaced. 4: The beam spread floods light all around, very similar to halogen bulbs (instead of having a definite circle where ther is no light cast outside of). 5: They don't heat up my room. That being said, they do still generate heat on the bulb itself, but the light beam has no heat to it. 6: The size is the same as a standard halogen bulb, so there is no worry as to how the bulb will fit inside the fixtures.
After calculating the savings on just the bulbs themselves, the money savings are tremendous. Here's the break-down: This LED lasts a total hour life of 25000 hours. An average halogen bulb costs 5 dollars and lasts 3000 hours. To make the halogen bulb last the LED's 25000 hours, you need to buy 9 bulbs. So, to get the same bulb life, you need to spend 45 bucks on halogen bulbs. This doesn't even include the savings on electricity, either. It's a win-win! Savings on bulbs and utilities!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kchien Buyer beware. Lasted about a year.
Very disappointing to pay nearly $30 for a bulb that is supposed to last over 20 years and only lasts one. I bought 3 for use in a walk-in closet (used significantly less than 3 hours a day). Two are still working but one burned out. These are too expensive to take the chance. Won't be repurchasing until there is some sort of guarantee against defective bulbs.
If you buy these SAVE YOUR RECEIPT.
