To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Starting to go bad after a month of usage, turning black near the connectors. Same problem with the 22-watts 8" and the 32-watts 12" as I replaced both at the same time and both having the started to blacken and now dimmer after just one month.
These are slightly brighter and don't last quite as long as the ones they are replacing. But the difference is trivial, these last 11 months instead of 12, as I said a little brighter than most with same number FC8T9/CW. These are cheaper and a bargain. Highly recommended. Will probably keep rebuying this brand forever.
While I have been wanting to replace the fixture with something more attractive, or just more modern, it's just so inexpensive and simple to replace the bulb that I haven't done it. These bulbs are perfect replacements and arrive so quickly that I don't need to keep extras on hand.
Ordered one which lasted all of 2 weeks while blinking and needing the switch to be toggled multiple times. Bought another and it never even turned on. At that point I thought the housing/ballast were messed up. Luckily I tried the Feit Led version which worked well on the get go.
