For some reason BR40 120W incandescent bulbs are becoming hard to find. Most of the 60W bulbs are just not bright enough, and many of the 120W bulbs that are available cost upwards of 20 USD. The fluorescent bulbs are awful because they start around 30-40% brightness and take upwards of 10 minutes to reach full brightness, which is unacceptable for use in kitchens and bathrooms which require instant lighting.
Would have given it 5 stars if the profile of the bulb was better, however, like many BR40's it is a bit wide in the middle. Some fixtures may not fit this bulb properly, and may require narrower bulbs, which was the case for my bathroom/fan fixture. To fix this you can try to adjust the bracket in the can to slightly lower the socket, or you can try a 1 inch porcelain e26 socket extension.
I ordered two 120W 130V BR40 flood lamps. They were delivered in a timely manner. I installed one to test it, then the second. The second bulb only lasted a few seconds, and went dark. I contacted Platinum and they said they would replace it. I ordered a third bulb so I would have two backups, and they packaged the replacement bulb with the third bulb and delivered it in a very short time. Excellent service - Thank you, Platinum.
These bulbs are too dim. They provide the light of about a 60watt bulb. More importantly the manufacturer does not specificy what the Lumins are for this bulb and that is the key factor in brightness. I'm stuck with these dim bulbs.
