perfect for my kitchen fixtureApr 25, 2008
By Grace Buchanan
Living in the boonies, I like to have a lot of light bulbs on hand. When we bought a new ceiling light fixture for our kitchen we tried a number of bulbs in it. Our light fixture hangs to a little more than 6' above the floor and has two "cans" 1' apart for the two light bulbs. The cans are nearly cone-shaped. They are a matte white inside. The fixture calls for two 50-watt R20 bulbs. Bulbs that are length 20 are just right. 30 length bulbs hang down too low below the cans.
This light bulb worked better than P20 because it has a relatively flat lens, and has a very narrow glass edge that lets out the right amount of light below the "can". The matte white finish inside the cones does not reflect well. The texture on the inside of the lens diffuses the light very nicely and minimizes glare. The two 50-watt light bulbs gave more light than other styles of bulbs that we had on hand.
I could not find this bulb in any local store, thus here I am at amazon and glad to find it.
If you are replacing a bulb, you will find "Capsylite" in the center of the lens. Very hard to read. You will also see "narrow flood" indicated by the "NFL" on the metal side in the middle of the bulb specs.

30 degree microlens wide angle for 3 bucks less than home storeDec 11, 2009
"God, Country, Corps"
I have to use halogen lighting in my system because the dimmers are not compatible with compact florescent, so these bulbs are golden. It's a lightbult, name brand, and it does have the microlenses on the glass - the spread is nice, and the price is right. This is almost 10 dollars a bulb from the home improvement store and there is no shipping from the supplier amazon selected.
If you can't go CF for energy savings, then this is a great option. I tried the CFs for dimmers but they created a buzz on my audio video system so back to halogen again for now. Some day these will be obsolete.

Ordered OSRAM - Got SylvaniaDec 03, 2010
By Books by George
Note that you may be confused when you thought you ordered a product from OSRAM and what you get is one from Sylvania. These two companies merged in 1993, OSRAM being a German company and Sylvania being an American company with a long history of consumer products in the United States. Regardless ... what you get is a light bulb manufactured in China with the Sylvania brand. This is probably true for just about any brand of light bulb you might order.
The OSRAM website says these bulbs should last 2500 hours. Based on my personal experience - don't expect that. In fact I think the average is closer to 1000 hours. This is based on the fact that I regularly cycle through the 24 bulbs I have in my house and have gotten a good feel for how reliable various brands are. Worst is Westinghouse, Sylvania is next and upon ordering this round of bulbs I expected to test the OSRAM bulb only to find out that they are in fact Sylvania's also.

The Right Bulb for the Right PlaceJul 19, 2012
By Book Glutton
This is a "wide flood" which is what our kitchen design calls for. It has nice color, neither yellow nor blue, and is bright (hot too!). The use of halogen downlights can be planned to use "spots," "floods," or "wide floods," depending on their placement in the ceiling and the number of lights you want to install, using the traditional 6 inch Downlighting Cans: Halo H7ICAT Air Tite Recessed Downlighting Incandescent 6-Inch Housing or anything similar. Each covers a lesser or greater area. The "spots" throw light in a narrow 30 degree beam spread. The floods throw their light to greater degrees. "WFL" is always the designation of a wide beam. This bulb has 50 degree beam angle, so it covers a much wider space than the others. I believe these are not as well-known to the public as other downlights.
Therefore, unfortunately, these are not carried in as many places as others halogen bulbs. However, as in many other cases, Amazon was shown to carry it. It's a great place to shop! It is nice to know that we can count on Amazon to be there for future purchases of the same.
