Let there be light!....occasionally
on 20 August 2011
As some have said already, the main downside to the product is the way it is wrapped, in a simple thin but hard cardboard box that could house anything from a book to a PC game. I was gobsmacked that it didn't come in any bubble wrap (not that bubble wrap is bullet proof ;-p) or at least something acting as a barrier. I'm amazed they are all okay. This aside, they are exactly as advertised, just make sure to check they are the right model/socket end for your socket type.
Since buying them we have used 10 out of the 10 we bought in a time span of 10 months, but we do have some problems with the wiring in our home as well, so that may be a contributing factor. The ones we bought in the past from a lighting wholesalers, the usage lifespan was about the same as these, and they were more expensive. Saving money is nice, but they don't last long.
Update: On a recent purchase we were given EverReady branded halogen bulbs instead of of Sylvania.
