Bit bummed one of my Orbit 10w LED bulbs crapped out after just under a year - I checked a previous thread as to when I bought them.

Anyone else had similar life spans or was it a dud?

On the other hand my limitless LED bulbs are almost 3 years old and still going strong.

Orbit is a CDB brand, purveyors of junk electrical products like goldair, celcius and many others that are just branded cheapest they can find in china stuff.

Am not surprised.

I now only buy Philips. They are on the expensive side but well worth it. We have had our ones for 2 years now.
Have a bad run with the other brands.

No idea. I was just going to say this is a cheap one.
