Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MALI It's OEM!!
Needed to replace driver's HID headlamp in my 2005 Toyota Avalon. Dealer wanted over $ 175 for the bulb +1 .5 hours labor. After doing some research on the web, I came across this model bulb on another web retailer (think of another name for the jungle). I was hesitant to purchase from that site and stumbled onto the fact that Home Depot sells this bulb online. Trusting Home Depot's return policy + I was eligible for free shipping, I decided to purchase it from Home Depot instead. 2 Days later the bulbs (bought one for passenger side as well) arrive at my doorstep. It took me 25 minutes to get to the original Toyota HID bulb (Hence the 1.5 hour dealer quote). After removal of OE bulb to my delight, the OE bulb is this exact Phillips brand and model!!!!!!!!!!!!! After 25 minutes to install replacement bulb and reinstall all the expensive plastic back in its place, I crossed my fingers and (heavenly music playing in the background) we have lights!
I am delighted with the results of my trust & faith in purchasing from Home Depot. So far they have not let me down :)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EW Expensive light bulb came in a flimsy box in an envelope
The delivery of this product was bad. This light bulb should be in a sturdy box. I was afraid it would not work when I got it. Luckily, it did. It is a bright bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Swampy1970 Big upgrade to the OEM HID lights in a 2005 Toyota Prius
I purchased these HID's to replace the OEM versions that came with my 2005 Prius. Those bulbs were average at best. One of the lights eventually started to fail and a quick "swaperoo" between left and right bulbs showed the bulb to be the issue and not the igniter module.
After trying to pull together as much info as I could in HID lights off the interwebz, one name was constantly mentioned as a good choice - Philips. With that part settled it was a choice of how 'white' I wanted the light - 4300K or 5000K. I settled on the 5000K.
The install was a topic in and of itself but with 267,000 miles and many a 100+F summer you might expect that plastic parts don't want to move freely after 10 years - but the new bulbs provided an amazing difference. Not only did the extra white light provide more light that were somewhat visible before, the extra light given also provided a better, more consistent, coverage of light in front of the car.
Amazing difference and although not the cheapest, I'd highly recommend it. I think I'm going to buy a similar set from Philips for my S2000.

Brighter than the older bulb it replaced. Pleasing light "color"- less blue than the prior bulb, more natural.
Negatives: Philips does not disclose useful life, and Philips refuses to publish reviews that are negative.
