I mark the installation date on the compact fluorescent bulbs that I install and they typically do not get anywhere close to the stated lifespan. I've found that LED bulbs last much longer, and I expect these Philips bulbs to last much longer, although it's far too early to tell. I didn't want to delay this review ten years to see if they lasted as long as I expected.
The older I get, the more light I need. The light intensity from these energy efficient LED bulbs is high enough that these would be very good in applications where you want a lot of task lighting but not much heat. I plan on using these for lighting in the shop, on various machine tools like milling machines and lathes, but they'd also be great for sewing, crocheting, quilting, etc.
- Very energy efficient (consumes 14 watts: this is an LED bulb)
- High light output: 1500 lumens
- My experience has been a 2 out of 4 failure rate. This is where the 1 star rating comes from.
--- All of these bulbs worked out of the box.
--- The first failure occurred within two weeks of installation.
--- The second failure occurred within 60 days of installation.
--- The remaining two bulbs have worked flawlessly for 6 months, so far.
- These cannot be used in enclosed light receptacles.
Note on Color:
- I was never sure what anyone meant by "daylight", but these bulbs give off a cold ("blue") light, something like a traditional fluorescent tube.
Bulbs were purchased on 9/2015, and used as front porch light on a timer for 7 hours/day, since 10/2015. Others were used in the living rooms (3) for ~4-5 hrs/day. Philips claim these light bulbs will last up to ten years when used at 3hrs/day. At this rate, my bulb should have last 4 years and 3 months for the front porch light. Will, after using this expensive bulb for just 1 year 9 months, the bulb went completely dead. It did not flicker, just went dead. One other observation: after using this 100W bulb for ~4 months, the light intensity went down significantly, ~40%, compared to the new one.
Two other bulbs in the living room starts to flicker after ~8 months, and eventually stop flickering, but light intensity also drop compared to the only good bulb, by also ~40%. So from the four bulbs purchased, on failed after 50% of the estimated life, two drop in light intensity by ~40% (like having a 60W bulbs), and I am left with just one good bulb. With 75% failure rare, I would never buy them again until Philips can improve their QA/QC.
The package also stated (in Spanish only) that these bulbs were made/assembled in "any of the following countries: Mexico and/or China. Where are these bulbs made? I would rather spend more money on quality products made in the US, like they used to do. If we no longer make quality products in the US, perhaps companies should consider investing in Germany?
NOTE: these will last about 7-10 years with average use (10,000hrs) and they cost about $10 each. The CREE brand 100w equivalent LED are likely higher quality (CREE is the industry leader) and are rated to last 27,000hrs for $20 each. I decided to go with Phillips because after 7 years there will likely be cheaper, more energy efficient LED bulbs on the market. 20 years (CREE) is to long to go without a bulb upgrade given the rate of technological advancement in LED technology.
