60w, everyday plastic version. Great price. However, our commercial application (elevator cabs, on 24/7) proves this are not going to last. In 3 months, we have lost 12 out of 16 bulbs. As a comparison, the Walmart great value brand bulbs in another 2 cabs installed a year ago are still going strong.
I ordered these because I was looking to save some money long term on bulb replacement and on my electric bill in general. So I purchased these LED bulbs hoping to reach this goal. It hasn't even been a year yet and 4 out of the 16 bulbs have stopped working. This is very disappointing because these are supposed to last many years and still only worked as long as a regular light bulb. Do your research and make sure your picking the right bulbs.
You can forget about any of these bulbs lasting you 10 years, or even 5 years! I've purchased 64 of these bulbs and replaced all of the bulbs in my house that these were appropriate for. After 10 months, 17 of the 64 have failed. I expect nearly all of them to fail prior to the 3 year warranty period. I've spent the last 2 months trying to get Philips to honor their 3 year warranty and it's been hell. A few tips for those who plan on requesting warranty replacements:
1. Read all of the information below before contacting Philips.
2. They do not honor the warranty for bulbs used in fully enclosed fixtures. What does this mean? Basically, if you pointed a fan at the light from some direction, would the air from the fan hit the bulb. If yes, the enclosure has some kind of opening. If no, forget about requesting a warranty as the tiny print at the base of the bulb says not for use in enclosed fixtures. I'm serious, it's not in the product info or on the box...only in tiny print on the bulb. This is excellent for Amazon shoppers who never have the opportunity to see this until they've accepted delivery and are installing the bulbs.
3. Photograph the box that the bulbs come in. Not the 16 pack tray, but the individual box of 4 bulbs. Photos of all sides and keep them until you need them.
4. Do not try to claim replacement of more than 5 bulbs at a time. You may be requested to send them all in, which is a royal pain in the rear. If you make claims of 5 or fewer bulbs, just e-mailing photos may be sufficient.
5. Philips can be reached at 1-800-555-0050. Once they open a case, then you can e-mail them the required photos.
I buy lots of Philips products. I have many of their Hue bulbs and have not had a single failure of any of them. This particular product just seems to be very problematic. In my case, they wrote me a $29 check for replacement of 17 bulbs. I'll be spending that $29 on another brand of LED bulbs.
8 of 16 bulbs failed within a few weeks. guarantee of 3 years with 3 hour per day use, general use, not with dimmers. I put in ceiling fans, no dimmers. when failed, I called Phillips. they went thru stalling investigation, and denied claim for either new bulbs or reimbursement, saying they are not recommended for ceiling fans. NOWHERE on the box or 4 bulb package does it say this. Says for general use. Let the buyer beware!.
I purchased these bulbs February, 2017. They were installed in a open globe fan that is rarely used. Two of them have failed. When I attempted to file a warranty claim with Philips they have NO record of this bulb on their website. I understand products can fail, but offering a warranty and making it impossible to file a claim is bad business.
I leave you with this quote from Philips. "No results were found. Please try a different search."
Looks like Philips is still up to their old accord the "Phoebus cartel" I installed these lights 13months ago 25% have recently failed and I do not have much hope for the rest now. I bought other LEDs at Home Depot long ago that are cycled more and on longer as night lights that I have not had one fail yet. Those shortly became unavailable or I would have a house full of them. As and Electrician I sampled many early LED lamps and trims. Out of the thousands I have installed none have failed as fast as these lamps that I chose to use in my kitchen etc... If the others had I would get constant calls from clients who are unable to change a trim etc...
Buy knowing they won't last 10years if you use them no more than the spiral florescents phillips sold us before did.
These are the worst led bulbs I have ever tried. They all pretty much last 6 months and then either start to flicker or just fail completely. Old incandescent bulbs last longer then these. Philips should be embarrassed to put their name on these bulbs. Buying these have made it so I will NEVER trust the Philips name again at any price. They did come at a "good price" but for a non dimmable bulb in large quantity, it didn't seem too far off. However, it turned out to be too good to be true. I have other LED brands that seem like they may make the 10 year lifespan and have already reached well into that. With these I had high hopes, but I would have been OK with maybe 3 years lifespan. 6 months is totally unacceptable. Considering the lack of quality, these are WAY overpriced. DO NOT BUY!
I bought the 16-Pack of Philips LED A19 Non-Dimmable 800-Lumen, 2700-Kelvin, 8.5-Watt (60-Watt Equivalent) Light Bulb, E26 Medium Base, Soft White... And came to write a review after a year and a half, four all went out during the same week. Ten year bulbs, Philips? After some investigating, I learned from reviews (thank you!), that these are not designed to be used in fully enclosed light fixtures.
There is absolutely nothing about that in the product description or on the packaging. Just in small print on the bulbs, where we wouldn't have noticed, had we not seen it here first. Very disappointing to learn this the hard way.
I don't have time to chase warranty replacements but will look for another brand bulb going forward. If you take my money, be clear about what you're selling...... Needless to say, not recommended if you have enclosed fixtures. Hopefully this helps someone.
