Halogen PAR changes, customers miss the 6000 hour lamp

Customers are not happy with the new changes made by the Department of Energy (DOE) to the Halogen PAR Lamps back on July 14, 2012.  The main complaint is that the new bulbs do not last as long due to the changes in the ratings from 6000 hours (130V) to 1500 hours (120V) mandated by the DOE.  There are alternatives with the 2500 hour and 4000 hour bulbs but most do not want to pay more, for a little more life.  

Following are some facts explaining the changes and advantages.
