I need a bunch of BR40s at 2700K for my kitchen and dining area. This is really tempting. I just hate to pull the costly trigger without seeing the lights in person...

damn, you've made my day more difficult, OP! Cheers

If anybody can find some HD coupons, I'm in. laugh out loud

I have a bunch of LEDs I got from Groupon last fall and yes, I will. I think they're great. Very nice lighting.

CFL's suck because if they break, you're contaminating your space with mercury dust, and if you put them in the trash, you're disposing of them incorrectly. Also IME CFL's do not last that long. All of mine burned out within a year. I wont be buying them again.
They also don't reach the maximum luminosity right away. They need to actually warm up a bit. I tried to use some as security lights and it did not work well.

I recently just moved and when I left I took all my cfl bulbs. Installed the ones from wally world 4 pack was .75 cents used 2 boxes. Normally I would just leave them but I just put them all in less than a month ago.

you must've bought a crappy brand CFL. Buy HomeDepot EcoSmart CFLs. They're amazing. No boot-up time, and mine have been running strong for over 4 years.

Honestly they are so cheap just sell em on ebay/amazon if you don't like them. Just open one when you get em. May even be returnable in store.

There is boot-up time due to technology limitation - you are probably not noticing it indoors. I bought my bulbs from costco and they were not crap.

Perhaps but it's doubtful. Hopefully by then, LEDs will have advanced and become more mainstream reducing cost.

If these were closer to $5 at Home Depot B&M they wouldn't be flying off the shelves but they would have more market penetration.

Another pro for LED is they don't need to warm up compared to CFLs. But the ones I have a tiny bit of a delay before they go on- it's really minor but I am just wondering if anyone has noticed that with these as well or if they are just my LEDs.

I understand how the bulbs work.

I'm telling you that, even on cold MA winters, the ecosmart bulbs attained full (let's say 90+% -- I don't have a spectroscope at home) brightness instantly. Not when used in my outdoor lights -- there, it takes about 30 secs. But inside? presto. And I keep my house cold, too. Thermostat's at 60F in winter.

I have some crap CFLs too (installed by the utility co). They take a minute to light up. In my bathroom 6-bulb fixture, I actually replaced 2 of the crap bulbs with ecosmarts. Now, the room gets "bright enough" on the flip of the switch and after a minute is crazy bright.

You've got crap bulbs -- at least, compared to some others on the market.

*I will say that my bulbs are 60W and 75W equivalents. I've found that when I use the 100W equivalents, they indeed take about 30s to reach max brightness.

If you look at the life of the bulb and the energy savings vs incandescent it's a no brainer. Versus CFL I think its still a good deal.

The average Philips CFL in my local HD is $8-$9. It is supposed to last 7-8 years (although some dispute how long they last). These bulbs use slightly less energy then the CFLs and last 20+ years.

When you compare the quality of the light there is no comparison. The LED is much better and there is almost no lag when turned on (unlike the CFL).
Your local HD is nuts. I can find a 6 pack of 13 watt 900+ lumen CFLs for under 3 bucks any day of the week at Lowes or HD, and often times they go on sale for $1.

I have been using CFLs for every light in my house since they came out and have only ever had 2 go bad (one outdoors exposed to extreme temperatures).

Now, some of them are not instantly bright (may take as long as 30 seconds to get to 100%), but most of them are pretty good.

They can keep their LED bulb until it actually saves me money vs a $1 CFL (which is being generous, since as I said I often bought 6 for that price).

I have Verbatim BR30s (were $15 at staples a few weeks ago) and utilitech A19 LEDs installed on an old push-in/pop-out rheostat-style dimmer switch. I find that the utilitechs turn on when I push in, but the verbatims take until the switch pops out to turn on.

So it's not just you.

Switch your store to one in ME, as per OP's instructions.

I wish they would do one of these co-op sponsored sales in Florida. I need some of those BR30s.
staples had BR30s (3000K) for $15 a few weeks ago. Maybe it'll return in the future.
