This GE product (Part Number 16778) is very hard to find, I went to two specialty lighting stores and neither of them stock it. Importantly, the official Amazon photo above is not correct. I have provided a real picture above in the customer photographs -- my picture is the one that includes the packaging and places a standard sized pen next to the product so you can discern the real size. This product is a so-called "double envelope" halogen bulb, that is, it consists of an inner glass bulb and an outer glass bulb. The outer glass bulb is for both UV and heat protection, as the halogen inner bulb gets really hot and gives off UV rays. The outer glass bulb also makes it easier to handle, as halogen bulbs are very sensitive to fingerprint grease which will cause "hot spots" to form and reduce their lifetime. So in summary, this specialty bulb gives you all the brightness and optimal color quality of a halogen, without the practical heat, UV, and handling disadvantages of halogen. We use them in our piano room, in the lamps that light the keyboards. Awesome product.

Provided good lighting, but burned out in three weeks.

Eleven more words required to post this, this should be eleven.

Compared to incandescent lights, these halogens are brighter, but they run very hot, and they burn out very quickly, probably because they run so hot.

I use these bulbs in our bathroom vanity lights.

They are rated as lasting 2 years, but on average they last about 1 month.
Between April and November I've bought 11 bulbs, of the 11, only 2 is still working.
That is 9 burnt out in 8 months.

I've resorted to using less bright incandescent bulbs.

I bought 10 of these to replace incandescent lamps in two 5 lamp chandeliers in my parent's apartment. They are significantly whiter and brighter than the very yellow light of the old bulbs, which is much appreciated by my 88 year old mother and 90 year old father. In my opinion these are worth the price.

A very difficult item to find given the new standards for light bulbs. I hope it last longer than the ones I had previously.

I have an old heavy brass reading light that takes this kind of bulb. I never could find an appropriate replacement. I had a forty watt bulb - too dim. And I had a 100 watt decorative bulb - way too hot.

60 watts is about right. I would prefer a florescent or LED with a cooler color temperature but no one makes those.

I thought I was going to get a coated bulb but contrary to the picture, it came with clear glass. That was a happy outcome because my light fixture has an opal glass shade. It is perfect for my purpose and produces lots of illumination
