Deal Details

Home Depot is selling a variety of Philips LED bulbs very cheap.

YOU MUST MAKE YOUR LOCAL STORE A MAINE LOCATION FOR THIS TO WORK. Prices are significantly higher in the rest of the country. Some items are backordered. Some can be shipped, others cannot. Gotta look around.

BR40 [homedepot.com] $20 CAN BE SHIPPED

A19 [homedepot.com] $10 LOCAL ONLY

A19 [homedepot.com] $7 CAN BE SHIPPED

BR30 [homedepot.com] $15 LOCAL ONLY

Please don't rail about cheap Costco prices. These are top of the line Philips LED's....great reviews all around.

Sorry, that's incorrect, most current CFLs achieve 98% of full brightness within 300 ms of turn on. If you read the data sheets for the bulb or look at the test reports you can read the numbers for yourself.

And I own a bunch of the latest philips CFL bulbs, they're nice. I have ones that range from 40W to 100W. They ALL have significant warm up time...like I said about 15-30 seconds. Most noticeable when cold or when they have been off for more than a few minutes. Post your results showing most CFLs achieve full brightness within 300ms.

So back to what slickdeals is about and not arguing about what bulbs are better for your health...I'm guessing this deal is dead for shipping? I'd like to spend $48 for 7 bulbs than pay $154...so let me know when this deal is back alive.

Excellent point, and my post above "agrees".


Seriously, 300ms to full brightness? I mean, it's "possible" physically for the gas in the tube to warm up that quickly, but sure as hell not in a commercially available bulb today... You'd need a sh*tload of energy to be imparted to the gas... Assuming warm up = 30 seconds, 300ms is 100 times faster... So yeah, I don't buy it either. Nice job posting links :-). I can't wait to see the links substantiating 300ms to full brightness LoL Big Grin

I like LED's too, but CFL hysteria is nonsense.

A typical CFL contains 4-5 mg of Hg, which you would not normally INGEST, unless you are a bulb eating circus freak.

Consumer Reports found that some brands of canned Tuna contained 0.771 ppm of Hg (FDA max is 1 ppm). " Are you talking about this per oz?"
Figure average can is about 6 oz, or 170 g, then you INGEST 131 ug (0.131 mg) of Hg each time you eat it.

Add some Salmon, Tulapia and other fish that you may eat, and you will EASILY exceed the amount of Hg that you INGESTED in one year vs. what is relased by one CFL bulb IF it were to break.

And it is not like you clean up broken CFL bulbs by licking the floors, tables, or wherever else Hg may have landed.

It is not like CFL bulbs just break on their own. I have only seen them break when they are dropped or improperly handled.
0.771 ppm Hg per OZ of Tuna?

These are not worth it lumens/watts. CFL's are better ratios. There are better ratio LED bulbs, but they hum. I use 16 LED bulbs with better ratios, they just hum.
These philips bulbs are great for small rooms or closests as you only need a little light. For larger rooms CFL's will give better light/$ or you have to go with LED bulbs that hum.
If you want 450-lumen bulbs, CFLs don't go under 9 watts that I could find.

I love the new Cree units launched a couple weeks ago. Great color, lumens and shape for $12 each.
