This bulb burned out, less than 2 months and used roughly 11 hours a day. Replacing it with a GE Par30L.

Steve , the inconsistency of products found today well quality control is out the window. That's why I ended my test on bulbs. If store wont refund or no receipt will call , most every time I get refund by manufacture and or a coupon. Being honest works ! There been only once that (Sylvania) asked for the bulb back and all the coupons they sent me was worth it.


PS: Same could happen with MVB's...friend with a MVB said got only (5) months out of one. He was so _____ that it went in the trash. After all that money I/me would be on the phone with somebody !
