Best bulbs on the market, don't overspend!
on January 20, 2014
I had 23 watt CFLs in my office which supposedly were 1600 lumens and I thought those were bright, however they ran very hot and was 96 watts total to light my office. I decided to give these a try based on the review and was amazed.
I went from 400 watts (standard bulbs) to 96 watts, and now down to only 48! Considering that I won't have to replace these bulbs for decades, it was worth starting the savings now.
Not only do they turn on instantly, they were BRIGHTER than the 1600 lumens CFLs and ran a lot cooler as well.
I will be outfitting my entire house with these, the price is still more than I want to spend, but considering that these are 12 watt bulbs, the saving on my light bill will be worth it!
Prices on these will eventually come down, and with standard bulbs being phased out, they will have to be competitive to have us adapt to the new standard.
Skip CFLs, and get these instead!
