These are not rough-duty bulbs at all. The rating of 3000 hrs is an average, meaning some burn longer and some burn for fewer hours. Some tips for extending the life:
-Keep them turned down to about half power. This alone should extend the life by about 3x.
-Never, ever jar the bulb when it is on. The filaments in these bulbs are more delicate than regular bulbs and have more filament suspended from the harp. A hard knock will break a hot filament and prolonged exposure to vibration will eventually weaken the filament where it is held by the harp.
-The squirrel cage and hair-pin filament styles should only be used vertically.
You can also get carbon filament lamps which have an even warmer (oranger) appearance.
Here is a picture of a lamp I made using one of the quad-coil bulbs:- [...]
A little trick I've been using with all these bulbs: Get one of the screw in light dimmers and you can turn down the brightness easily for a nightlight. These dimmers screw into the lamp socket and then you just screw the bulb into the dimmer. It has a dial to operate the bulb from a barely glowing filament to full brightness. I like to leave it set with the quad loop filament just barely glowing. Makes a good conversation piece.
First of all, the glow from these is dreamy if you have an antique filled room and need it to look "right".
Second of all (and this is a jab at the enviro-nazis), these are MUCH safer for the environment than CFL's, they do not contain mercury, plastics, etc. Just good old fashioned metal (biodegradable) and glass, two natural elements. If you accidentally drop and break one of these, you don't need a hazmat kit!
I have a vintage radio area and use these to light it. The filaments are not overly bright, and put off a very nice glow. Superb, and real attention getters.
Last year, had some guests over and had one of these bulbs in the overhead light. Guests were fascinated by the "old" lightbulb and they even took pictures of it! By far, the light bulb over our heads was the biggest hit of the night.
I agree with other users about using this bulb with a dimmer if you are concerned about not being able to see the filaments (which is really why you are paying so much for a single bulb). At full brightness, you will not be able to see the filaments distinctly when looking at the bulb directly, but if you use the bulb in a tinted glass pendant as I am, the tint helps dim the bulb enough to make out the filaments even at full brightness. Dimming the bulb is probably a much more elegant solution.
My issue with this bulb concerns its size. The listed "Assembled Height" of this bulb is 5.75". The bulb comes nowhere near this. I measured it to be only 4.5 inches. This makes a difference to me when the bulb is meant to be used without a lamp shade, in a open direct view application. I expected the bulb to be bigger, with bigger filaments so you can see if from a further distance. The width of the bulb is also slightly off from the listed specification. The listed width is 2.25", I measured it to be about 1-2 cm more. Hope this helps.
