Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GPof5 My wife likes this light!
The bulbs are installed in recessed ceiling sockets. The set of five light our kitchen well and provide 15 hrs/day light for an orchid plant. with the 300 w ( actually , 5 * 39w) of light, this plant has become an expensive kitchen feature. Efforts to replace these bulbs with others that are more efficient has been rejected by my wife! The bulbs do last the minimum number of hours cited on the package (I have good records) BUT NOT the number of years due to 15 hrs/day rather than 3 or 4 hrs/day usage. Such is the cost of maintaining a happy home.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DougDL Did NOT last longer than warranteed hours
I also use it in an outdoor dusk to dawn application, and mine only made it 15 months. It is on a motion sensor so it's off most of the time. It only comes on for 2 or 3 minutes when someone comes/leaves then it's off again.
Phillips warranty is 3 hours a day x 365 days/year x 2 years = 2190 hours
I'm still trying to find out how to submit a warranty claim - may have to resor to PHILIPS CHAT link ... arggg......h

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe not what I was looking for
The bulb is described as a flood light but when I used it to illuminate an outdoor sign the effect was more like a spot light. Also the halogen lighting created a glare on the sign. I ended up using a compact flourescent type bulb and the result was much more satisfactory for my application.
I would not recommend the bulb to illuminate something relatively close to the light source.

These bulbs are used in a Dusk to Dawn situation and last far longer than any others I have tried. I had to order them online since my local store does not keep at least 12 in stock? They arrived on time in good condition
