    I don’t give out a lot of five star reviews. And I was skeptical of the claim of “120% more light on the road.” But I have to tell you, I was impressed with these headlight bulbs. If you check out the bit of video footage I attached to this review you can get an thought of just how much brighter these bulbs are as compared with the bulbs that were installed by the factory. You can see for yourself that the light of the new bulbs (on the right) is significantly brighter and nearly pure white in affect. What the footage against the wall cannot show is just how much further these new bulbs reach out as compared with the originals. Its nearly like having my brights on when only the low beams are on. Road signs light up much surpass as do lane markers and other various items found on and nearly roads. Unfortunately I cannot predict how reliable these bulbs will be over time – Will they last or will they burn out prematurely? Only time will tell. The bulbs were simple for me to install, but your have fun experience will depend a lot on what car you have and how simple the manufacturer made it to change them (ie. there could be obstacles in the way). Also, be sure to buy the right bulbs for your vehicle – if you’re not sure, use the Amazon fitment guide and you should probably check through another website (like PepBoys) just to be certain. Whatever you do, do not touch the glass part of the bulbs at all when installing them. I recommend using sterile rubber or nitrile gloves to avoid any accidental contact with skin oils. Five stars (for now).

    UPDATE: 11/13/2014

    My new headlight bulbs are subdue working fine, and they are fantastic, but I reckon it’s vital to update this review with some info I’ve just seen thanks to another reviewer here (Steve6966). Just FYI, GE rates this develop 9007NHX/BP2 to a life span of just 90/150 hours. I believe 90 hours is for the high beam (65W) and 150 hours is for the low (55W). I reckon “habitual” headlight bulbs are rated 750 to 1000 hours for low beam and I’ve seen long life bulbs (LL) rated from 1500 to 2000 hours. I would suppose the LL bulbs come with a brightness penalty.

    Here is a link to the GE Nighthawk Xenon webpage which has links to specs for all eight models (on the bottom right):

    http://www.gelighting.com/LightingWeb/na/consumer/products/highlights/nighthawk/xenon-headlights/overview/

    And again, Steve6966 should get the credit for putting the original low lifespan rating info in his review. Thanks Steve!

    As for me, the new headlight bulbs are subdue working fine. I don’t place a lot of night hours on my car, so for me, they could work for years, but I will be storing my OEM bulbs in the trunk just in case. If you’re doing a lot of night driving, then these may not be the headlight bulbs for you.

    New non-blue NHX is excellent combination & negotiate at upper limits of (street-legal) halogen technology, July 3, 2014
    By 
    Christopher Pizzano (alpharetta, ga United States) –

    Verified Buy(What’s this?)
    Bought both the GE NHX (xenon, new product as of late ’13) and the plain / classic NH (circa 2003, and not the sport or platinum NH because these are “blue” hue bulbs). Firstly, the NH-classic is surpass than a stock bulb (1650 vs 1350 lumens) and gives a warm off-white light that’s surpass for an all-hazards / fog-prone area. For senior-age parents’ cars and their rare-occasion night-driving needs, bought the NHX which is bright, sharp beam focus and is a white(r) light. Not any “blue” tint when on. A excellent combination and negotiate at the upper performance limits of (street-legal) halogen technology.

    Final thought: I dislike seeing “blue” halogens as ersatz HID or LED lights in street cars. Not only a headache for other drivers, but blue is the last and toughest affect that the cones of the human eye detect; yellow is the first and simplest affect detected. So why illuminate the road with bulbs working at the dark / blue end of the affect spectrum ? Duh-oh.

    A tech tip: When shopping for bulbs, usable light = combination of lumens (brightness) and kelvin (affect), not watts (power consumption). Lumens halogen trade-off is can get more but shorter life. And Kelvin is the affect factor where whatever thing higher than 4.5k to 5k kelvin shifts too far from white to blue and goes down rapidly in usable light. Right quality HID light systems compared to halogen make up somewhat for this blue-shift loss with the human eye by offering 3x the lumens at 1/2 the power requirement — provided they’re used in bestow bezels with a very sharp focus. But like it or not stock halogen-era bezels are not designed for HID bulb “add-ons” and this unruly combination can blind other drivers. Pleased motoring.

    Whiter and Brighter, July 31, 2014

    Certainly Whiter and Brighter than the headlamps that came with my 2007 truck. My night vision is not what it used to be and I like all the help I can get to see at night. These GE Nighthawk bulbs really help, they shine brighter, farther, wider and whiter. To equate to the original, I only replaced one bulb. Then took my truck for a ride at night and what a difference.

    They are expensive but really excellent value if it saves you from having any problems seeing something at night. They installed with no problem. The only issue I had was that one fell out of the package socket and opening the package was a bit tough (no instructions). While there are quite a few headlamp bulbs that are cheaper, they may not last. I have seen demos of cheap bulbs cracking with slight amounts of water.

    If you are looking for improved night vision from your headlamps, these GE Nighthawk Xenon are well worth trying.
