Product Description

GE 72549 60-Watt Rough Service Frost A-Line, 2-Pack, Bulb Finish: Inside frost, Filament: C-9, Initial Lumens [Nom]: 500.00 and 380.00, Light Center Length (LCL): 3.120 in, Maximum Overall Length (MOL): 4.4300 in, Nominal Initial Lumens per Watt: 8 and 7, Product Technology: Incandescent, Rated Life [Nom]: 2,000-Hours/5,400-Hours, Voltage [Nom]: 130.0/120.0, Wattage: 60/53GE incandescent lamps represents the state of the art of lamps for residential and commercial use, as well as special purpose lamps for decorative or display applications. In an incandescent lamp, light is generated by heating the filament to incandescence. The hotter the filament, the more efficient it is in converting electricity to light. However, when the filament operates hotter, its life is shortened so the design of each lamp is a balance between efficiency and life. This is why lamps of equal wattage may have different lumen ratings and different life ratings. Incandescent lamps of similar size are commonly available with different wattage ratings. The fixture wattage limit should not be exceeded.

I have floor lamp with dimmer that took incandescent bulbs. However, it buzzed at any setting but high. I had read that the buzzing for incandescent is usually related to vibration of the filament. It was suggested that if one used a 'rough service' or 'marine' bulb, ( built with filaments that are more sturdily attached and so harder to set up vibrations) that it might alleviate the buzz.

I was very pleased - put these bulbs in and now I can actually use the light at various light levels. No buzzing!

I note that I probably didn't search very well for cheapest. I didn't realize that these bulbs (GE 72546) have a protective coating to keep the glass together in case of shatters and so are a bit more expensive than the equivalent (GE 72527) without the saf-T coating. These have somewhat matte surface and a bit of a rubbery feel, but that doesn't really matter to me plus or minus.

Bought to install in my garage door opener. The unit vibrates a lot whenever the door opens, and I was constantly replacing bulbs every month or so (I use the GE Reveal bulbs that don't have a very long life to begin with). Since installing these bulbs however, I haven't had to change them once. Well worth the small investment!

11/29/2014 Edit: More than 2 years later, and I still have yet to replace the original pair I installed in to my garage door opener, and it is used twice daily (sometimes more). Although they are roughly twice as expensive as regular bulbs, they are well worth the price.

These "classic" rough service bulbs are getting hard to find in stores and are still what I prefer for my shop light. I can't say that I've ever broke one. They last several years the way I use them.

Have been using these for decades on outdoor lights next to front door, and in trouble light. Truly rugged - and about 5 times longer lived than regular bulbs in outdoor fixtures subject to heating and cooling and door closing vibration.

I am very disappointed with this order.
The packaging was fine but 5 of the 6 the bulb bases were old and corroded. 2 of the bases had actually sheared off, leaving an intact glass bulb and disconnected base.
An examination of the manufacturing date code showed these bulbs were made in Hungary about 10 years ago, under license from GE in Nela Park near Cleveland.
Amazon states they do not want them back. Understandable. I shall dispose of then in the appropriate recycling station.

Yes - these types of bulbs solve your light hum problem on a dimmer switch. The filaments dont vibrate with the AC cycle interuptions caused by dimming. Simple and great solution. One of the bulbs I got had a hole in it. Amazon credited me $3. So whatever.. I only needed 5. Otherwise I would have been mad. Thus minus one star for GE. Feel my wrath?

I bought these to use in my garage door opener that eats regular bulbs about every 4 to 5 weeks. They arrived unharmed and in good shape. I will update this review when and if these bulbs succumb to the vibrations of the garage door opener in an untimely manner.

It's been one (1) year and the bulbs are still going strong. Will update next year if I remember to do it
It's been three (3) years and the bulbs are still going strong. Will update next year if I remember to do it.

I installed a dimmer switch on my ceiling fan, but the standard incandescent bulbs then started buzzing. I read online that if you replace them with rough service bulbs it would stop the buzzing, which it did! I was very pleased with this, but one of the bulbs was defective. I can't be bothered to return it, so I'm just going to take the hit. Seems like other people have had this problem too. I wonder if they are just passing off bad bulbs in random orders because like me most people will just accept it. :( Also it does seem to be less bright than regular bulbs.
