To be fair, I have yet to decide if maybe there is an electrical problem on my exterior carriage lights which are also on a switch timer, or whether these are the most short-lived bulbs I've ever seen. After installing them in two garage carriage lamps that are on a timer they worked fine for about a week. They provided a very nice light that was not too bright or dark, but after a week they began flickering badly. After a few days of this one side's tube had almost all but burned out. There was still some light, but for the most part the light was gone and the other one started flickering. I took them out, tried again, and ordered two more. Same problem occurred. Hopefully it was just my bad experience and/or carriage light wiring because they really were well suited for outdoor use and provided a great exterior light!

Have used this product in my post lamps on the farm where very windy and at my office. They work very well.

I had a devil of a time finding these, but after I did, I am happy to report that they work. We leave lights on in our subdivision at all times, and previous bulbs have lasted several years. I imagine these would, as well.

3 Stars because it is working, but far from what I expected.

This is advertised as an 11 Watt bulb with a 40 Watt equivalent output. The Product page says 11 Watts as does the shipping slip in the package and the Amazon sticker on the bubble wrap protecting the bulb. The blub itself, including it's manufacturer's packaging says 14 Watts. 3 Watts doesn't sound like much, but that is a 27% increase from the advertised 11 Watts.

I'm also disappointed that this is advertised as an outdoor bulb, but it comes on SLOW. It takes a full 2 minutes to reach full brightness. Once there, it's good, and I'm happy. But when it is first turned on, there is little light output. If this is OK for you, great. If not, and you want the ability to see something when you flip the switch, then not so much...

I have run this for a week so no long term evaluations yet.

We use these bulbs on our porch lights and they work great. Very bright and uses less electricity. Regular bulbs would pop after a rain storm or would burn out from power surges. So far, so good.

The light bulb is a replacement. The previous one lasted four years. The lighted space provided is approximately seventy ft in diameter.
Excellent product for outside lighting!
