We ordered these bulbs to replace bulbs that came with a fixture we install about five years ago. The original bulbs we that came with it lasted THAT long. These replacement bulbs are crap. First of all they weren't packed well enough and one came broken. We had to send all of them back in order to receive a replacement. We have had them four months now and one by one they burned out or smelled like burned rubber. So here we are needing to replace them again after only three months! and to top it off this brand is the only correct replacements I could find so I had to order them again. I went down on wattage hoping this would help. This is a review so if other people have found other options than this brand then do it. We live in a small town and this was our option. Our only option. Hoping the lower wattage works better.
