Used for 17+ months in bathroom light - works well
on April 13, 2014
I purchased 17+ months ago in August, 2012 and installed it in a bathroom wall light as the main light source for that room. It was slightly extra bright but that was wanted for a bathroom (gotta make sure you're clean all over! :-) Also it was, IMO, the right color tone for a room where one looks at oneself in a mirror.
After 17+ months of usage I decided to order a second for another, similar, bathroom.
I have no complaints and am very happy. I realize that others have had miserable luck with this bulb -- as stated in their reviews. I personally can not account for all the variation in experiences. I do know that whiled the actual LEDs do not get hot the internal circuits inside the bulb casing do get warm, even hot, and that bottled up head in a light fixture means death to the internal circuits.
The vendor I used in August, 2012, was NEON MART. And, therein, is something to note:
This bulb was originally listed as ASIN B004YZRNKW. Now Amazon lists it two ways:
-- ASIN B005HT38D0, Lighting EVER part number 100015, offered by a single vendor, _not_ NEON MART;
-- ASIN B008OBEDSM, Lighting EVER part number 100022-WW, offered by NEON MART,
fulfilled by Amazon _and_ shopped in the bulb's "original package"
Sometimes the vendor one uses _is_ important -- especially since counterfeit goods are turning up everywhere!
