5.0 out of 5 stars Bright
I have various downlighters that use 12v Halogen bulbs. The one's in the kitchen get alot of use and I have tried various brands including very cheap ones. The cheap ones such as poundlound are a waste of time - sometimes they have blown as soon as you switch them on, but normally only last 3-6 months and it seems I was always replacing them.

i changed 4 at a time. 2 of them lasted just 2 weeks and the other 2 are still working (more than 2 months). Some old ones of the same brand are still working. considering the price I think if they last for another 6 months it will be all right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright, 4 Mar 2011

This review is from: Sylvania Halogen 12v Dichroic Reflector MR16 50mm Diameter 50w (60 Deg) 4,000 Hour (Coolbeam) 5 Pack (Kitchen & Home)
I have various downlighters that use 12v Halogen bulbs. The one's in the kitchen get alot of use and I have tried various brands including very cheap ones. The cheap ones such as poundlound are a waste of time - sometimes they have blown as soon as you switch them on, but normally only last 3-6 months and it seems I was always replacing them. So I started to monitor the brands and how long they last and how much they cost. Yes its a sad life I lead. I found the Philips lasted about 2 years at about 3 each from places like Sainsburys and B&Q. So decided to look for a better deal on-line. I found the Philips (2,000 hours), but then saw these Sylvania 4,000 hour bulbs for about the same price - so a no-brainer. The proof of the pudding will be whether they last 4 years...
What I can say now is that these bulbs are noticeably brighter than the other bulbs in the same room so that's a bonus and hopefully an indication of build quality.

As my title says it... 4 out of 10 light don't work. we placed a bulk order for our offices and were not happy to see that so many bulbs don't work. There is no option to contact the seller either Will not reorder again

not much else to say, they do exactly what they need to do and the price is pretty reasonable for the amount you get.

This review is from: Sylvania Halogen 12v Dichroic Reflector MR16 50mm Diameter 50w (60 Deg) 4,000 Hour (Coolbeam) 5 Pack (Kitchen & Home)
I buy these as it is unusual to get such a wide angle beam that spreads the light over a greater area

Replaced my existing bulbs for a fraction of the price I would have paid on the high street. I would have given five stars but recently I have started to replace my halogen lights with LED lights. Wish I had done that with these instead.
