This lamp has been running 24/7 in my attached garage since 4/24/2014 !
The ONLY time this has been off is during power failures
Do the math, that's well over 40,000 hrs!
I tested a new lamp along side this one and saw NO difference in brightness, Not bad!!!!

These lamps were criticized for early failures. I bought a dozen of them years ago. One of them did die exactly as others complained about, but the rest still work perfectly. Mine are used for outside lighting on a solar calendar timer. They can on for as long as 15 hours a day.
I consider it not bad for an early LED effort that is technically not very refined compared to more recent lamps.

Honestly, I'm curious as to how long this thing will last! I too have heard of the quality issues of these. I guess maybe sometimes i'm just lucky with lamp life. I write the install date of ALL of my "regular use" lamps either on the lamp itself or on a piece of paper left in the fixture. I've had some short lives (usually 13w PL-C's)and some long ones,(a 9 1/2 year dusk to dawn , 9w Ecosmart CFL) and the "famous" Phillips 35w HPS which ran dusk to dawn for AT LEAST 17 yrs !

They seem to do better on 24/7 run, I have an ‘Energetic ‘ running the same, and this is at 34,000+ hours now, given Energetic only give it a 30,000 hour life, it’s going way past this, and like above, there’s no change in lumens or its colour either.

Those LED A19s are usually only rated for 25,000 hours, so far this is doing great! Since this photo is from June last year though, is the bulb at EOL yet?

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

I bought some of these too back in 2013/14. I only had one failure in the 2700K lamps, but had 90% plus failures with the 5000K ones. I like the appearance of these, but the ones made today far surpass these in life and CRI.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

That’s just amazing!, now if only EVERY LED lamp/fixture/flood/batten in the world had the same perfect combination of diodes and driver, you wouldn’t hear anyone slating off LED lighting?
This just proves they CAN build them to do what they claim they can do!, the lighting industry needs to clamp down hard on all the rouge copycat manufacturers, and set an industry standard for decent made lamps!

Imagine if LED street lighting and corn lamps were like this. They would be good quality and actually have a purpose!

Part of the reason I initially bought this is the fact that when lit it looks exactly like a standard inside frost 60w bulb in both light output AND color. CFL's were useless in here as the garage is unheated and CFL's don't like the cold. Plus, I was tired of changing the incandescents monthly as this light runs 24/7/365 .

The biggest problem I see with LED's is the current lack of "standards" in the industry. With incandescent, halogen, fluorescent and HID almost everything is standardized and for the most part, interchangeable whereas most of the LED products aren't .

Hopefully that all changes sooner than later.

I wish all LEDs had standards and were serviceable. Why does the light run 24/7?

the garage only has 2 tiny windows so it's rather dark ,even during the day . Plus, the only light switch for the garage is in the house (kinda useless when your coming in from outside ! ) so I just leave it on !

Oh, that makes sense. My garage has no windows. I have two T12 fixtures, two LED floodlights, and a CFL in the door opener. The switches are right by the entrance to the garage on a triple plate, so I do turn them on and off.

These older Cree lamps seem to last forever if they didn't fail early.

Is it dimmer than when it was new?

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

I think I had one A19 that failed early and several of the PAR 38s fail early too. They're decent enough for the time they came out at I guess. If I still have the one that failed maybe I'll take it apart or something.

@ Lumex120 : I'm curious as to how long it will last !

@ dor123 : It's just as bright as when it was new . (I compared it along side of a brand new 60w equivalent LED )

@ joseph_125 : I'd bet it's something that failed in the driver.
