Good product

"I don't normally write reviews but felt I had to as the other two reviews seemed to have a flaw.
These lamps are a good product if you install them correctly.
With Halogen Lamps You have to install them without touching them with your bare hands (use a clean/disposable dry cloth or clean/disposable gloves) due to the composition of the lamp.
When you touch the glass with your bare hands you put grease onto the glass which over a short time creates an area that the Halogen gas can escape which could be why the other two reviewers have had bad reliability with there lamps
Hope this helps as I see many people struggling with these types of lamps due to the limited information given about the problem"

Not So Superia
23 Dec 2008

"One of these supposed superior quality bulbs failed after less than a week of use. Nowhere near the rated hours that the bulbs are advertised as giving.
Also, I had seen a comment saying that these 35W bulbs produced a light intensity that was near to those of a regular 50W non- Superia bulb. In my opinion, the dfiference in intensity is significant.
The jury is still out on another couple of the 35W that we have installed - no more failures after about 4 weeks - but I have continued my stocking-up process of these halogens by reverting to regular 50W varieties."
