Possibly counterfeit bulbs
Reviewed in the United States on December 1, 2020
I bought a 16-pack of these bulbs and was so happy with them I bought more - 5 orders of 16-pack bulbs, returned one, and will be returning others. the bulbs from the 24-pack failed within minutes of installation and was returned. The older models have dark writing and most are still in use today (after 2 years). The older bulbs have dark writing on the plastic base. The newer bulbs have faint writing. These are used in non-closed recessed can lights with no cover, and Ikea NOT lamps - they aren't being kept enclosed, and are not overly hot in their environments. Very disappointed. Philips makes great products, but I suspect these bulbs are counterfeit. Some did not last 10 minutes out of their box, nevermind 10 years.
