I've read numerous threads on a few different forums and haven't found where anyone has actually compared these two alternatives.

This faq shows a few interesting numbers :
http://faq.auto.light.tripod.com/general-faq.htm

"What is the brightest halogen bulb?
For the 55W marked segment, sorted in order of brightness:
+50%: Philips Vision Plus (achieves its extra performance by increased luminance, not lumens. See this article: http://www.eur.lighting.philips.com/press/automotive/resultsVision.shtml)
+30%: Philips Premium, Osram Silverstar (European marked only - see note below)
+20%: Osram/Sylvania Xtra Vision, Osram/Sylvania Silverstar (North american marked only - see note below)
+0%: Philips Bluevison, Osram/Sylvania Cool Blue, Osram/Sylvania Halogen Plus, and OEM bulbs like GE.
-10%: PIAA Superwite"

If the above numbers are accurate, I would think that there would be more interest in the Philips Vision Plus bulbs than in the Sylvania SilverStar bulbs.

Can anyone shed any light on this topic ?

I had read a review, that placed the Phillip's ahead of the Silverstars, in terms of brightness. The Phillips have performed brilliantly!!
