When we moved to a new house ~3 years ago, it had zillions of those 
ceiling-mounted 65-watt reflector bulbs.  Then I saw that the local hardware 
store had a real good subsidized price on "Feit" brand reflector bulbs, so I 
bought a dozen.  At this point, there are only one or two left in servixe, the 
rest have all burned out.  I had left incandescent bulbs in s few places, and I 
found that the Feit bulbs burned out about as often as the incandescents.

Since then I have generally bought GE or Philips, and they seem to last longer. 
 Of course, they are all made in China...
