Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tow2guru Great replacement for Incandescent R20s
Bulb fit perfectly where the original R20s were located in the exterior eave cans. A tad brighter than the 45Ws that I had, but look great anyways.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyman Great PAR20 replacement
I purchased these bulbs for my outside lighting. My 110v fixtures require PAR20 bulbs. Anything longer won't fit so I was a little challenged finding low wattage replacement for Halogen PAR20 bulbs. Many of the CFL's I tried were just a 'smidgen' too long. These bulbs are, best I can tell, true PAR20's and they fit perfectly. I also find their light to be a little warmer than Halogen, which I like, and their spread pattern is amazingly even. I am using them for splash lighting against my house and trees. On the house, the pattern is perfectly even with no 'shadow lines' or bright spots which I had with my incandescent and halogens bulbs. They also run much cooler than the Halogens and CFL's I had before. The only negative I can think of is that the bulbs aren't the same as the picture (which I don't care in the least about). The bulbs I received don't have the 'veins' in them. Probably an old picture. If you look up the single version of this light on HD's website instead of the 8-pack you will see the correct picture. I can't comment on longevity yet as I've only had them for two weeks, but I can say that I ordered two packs (16 bulbs) and have had no failures. Compare that to my incandescent bulbs I had in the past and out of 16 bulbs, 3 died within a week. So far good reliability. One last comment... these bulbs are very consistent in their color and intensity. That means if you have a line of lights parallel to each other like I do on my house wall, they will be exactly the same color and intensity. Not always true with LED bulbs.
