Rated 4 out of 5 by pivatuv7 These are good!...
Just be aware that at 117 volts, they are 53 watt bulbs. So you get a little less light, but they last longer at the lower voltage.
Do scroll down this page though...there are some PLT's that are rated @20,000 hrs. Of course, they cost 3 times as much per unit, so the cost is about the same. Buy a bunch while you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeInTX Bright and clear
I haven't had these bulbs long enough for an exhaustive test, but I'm impressed with their performance so far. They have a slightly different filament pattern from the ones I've been using, but the light output, the color temperature and the clarity are a perfect match. Some of these are used in bare-bulb applications, while others are in enclosed fixtures, and they work well in both.
These bulbs are a good buy, and the service from 1000Bulbs is unmatched. Both are highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judyc A good value.
The bulbs came in a timely fashion. They are a good product, at a very reasonable cost. One can go through bulbs at a very fast rate, and it is good to know that we have them on hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by No1Bill Needed to match some existing bulbs. These did the trick.
These bulbs provide a good bright light source over our kitchen island, and are nicely matched between the three of them. i.e., same brightness, same warm light color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck Great for outdoor use
I use this product in my outdoor and indoor fixtures. I don't like climbing a ladder to replace bulbs so these are great for my garage fixtures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffL Great, if it's what you want.
These bulbs have a lower light output than typical bulbs of the same wattage. They are also rated at 130V. In a typical US household application, it will last three times as long as typical 60 watt light bulbs. If you really like incandescent light bulbs and are concerned you won't be able to buy them any more, a case of these would be a good choice. If you want light output comparable to typical 60 watt light bulbs, get the 75 watt Halco bulb. It will cost you 25% more in electricity for the same light, but you will get the light you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillyBulb Clear lights are great for Porch Lights
I bought this product because I cleaned and painted my outside Porch Lights and a clear light bulb looks the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Satdon The 130 volt rated bulbs seem to last longer.
I have had some of the 130 volt bulbs in outdoor fixtures that come on every night and I have not replaced them in 5+ years.
