Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by familyman357 Not sure if they're worth it.
I installed a pair of these in my belt-drive garage door opener. That opener has a motion sensor so the lights come on whenever someone goes into the garage. As such, they cycle on several (maybe up to 20) times per day for about 4 minutes each time. That's about 80 minutes per day, although sometimes I'll be in the garage for longer (almost never more than an hour). Phillips claims that these bulbs should last about 3.2 years at 3 hours of on-time per day. I just had a bulb go out after about 13 months of use. I'll see how long the other bulb lasts, but it seems that Phillips' longevity claim may be optimistic.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doug It's fine, it works.
When it comes to lightbulbs, there's really only three things I look at: Light output, light quality, and longevity.
Light output is a little low. I can see fine enough for walking from my car to my front door and putting my key in, but I wouldn't be able to do any sort of work in the garage by the light that's being output here.
Light quality is sub-par. Without frosting, the bare bulb is just kind of unpleasant.
And I've only had the bulbs for a few weeks, so I can't judge longevity.
If this isn't the least expensive heavy-duty light bulb you can get your hands on, I'd look elsewhere. That being said, they function.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RIORANCHOJOHN SIX CYCLES and it "went black"! Just my luck!
Purchased the pair on 9/4/2013 at 0900. Went home - put them in - cycled the door SIX TIMES throughout the day and one of them "went black" inside!
I am guessing AIR leaked into the bulb and "smoked" the filament on the next cycle! So .... back to HD I go in a couple minutes! Nice shiney bulbs in hand to see if I can get them replaced!
Maybe a fluke - but the "Philips 60-Watt A19 Garage Door Light Bulbs" are a flop thus far. I would have been better off buying the 10 pack of "Economy Bulbs" for less money and had a sufficient number to last nearly two YEARS - not simply "SIX CYCLES"!
It is the TIME and FUEL wasted to take these back that simply, "ticks me off"! Phillips - a bad deal IMHO!

I ordered these bulbs for my garage door opener because they rated for use in a high-vibration area. So far the one I installed is working great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Awesome bulb!
Have used this bulb in garage door light and inside the house. Long life bulbs. Have had 4 in a ceiling fan difficult to reach in vaulted room and after 4-5 years, finally 1 burned out! Ordering more...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by familyman357 Does the job.
Brightness-wise, they're nothing special. I've had one in my garage door opener for about a month now and there have been no issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnHonestReview Great bulb but a little pricey
I hope they last long for the price (I think they are a little pricey because they are not a designer style bulb by no means
