Very good deal for this bulb. I've been waiting for it to go on sale. Looks like today only. better than the deal in January where this 3-pack was $23.99.

2700K warm/soft white, 800 lumens, A19 standard bulb shape, fairly omnidirectional light pattern so these would work better in lamps than the Home Depot ecoSmart 40w bulbs which work well in ceiling fixtures and downward pointing bathroom lamps.

Normally this 3-pack sells for $29.99 so this is 30% off.

Allow me to clarify: the light bulbs you linked to in your former post that you've already purchased from Newegg would not make good table lamp bulbs because of their plastic base. Basically, the light is only coming out of the top 'dome' on those bulbs. Other LED bulbs that have a 'shroud' similar to an incandescent bulb...allowing light throw in almost all directions...would be perfect for table lamps. Sorry for the confusion.
No problem, man. Just trying to learn from someone with experience. So, would you say this set would be good where diffuse lighting is needed?

thanks to home depot price mistakes.. my house is 95% led... and my power bill last month was $2.50.. thank you solar!
Wow, do you have a microwave? Toaster? computer? TV? Cable box? washer? dryer? I find it hard that your power bill was so small. Hook us up with your power company please!

Great math but CFLs in my experience don't last more than a year or so in normal usage (i.e. turning on and off many times a day) so you may want to factor that in to the equation. If the LED lasts just 5 years it pays for itself even before electricity savings and gas savings from not having to drive to buy replacements that often.
I've had better luck with CFLs than that. I've had 30 or so in our house over the last 10 years, and just a handful of them have gone out. In our rentals we see one go out every year or two, so I'm think 10 years isn't a bad estimate.

The real question is how long do the LEDs really last? Is it the 20+ years claimed? Kind of hard for them to tell since LEDs have only been around a few years, so it's all just based on assumptions and a 'best guess.'

My saltwater reef tank sucks down over 1400 watts in lighting alone during the day. Don't think these are going to save me that much in the whole picture but in for 6 to try. Really need to switch the tank over to LEDs Smilie

Does anyone know if these are "instant on" (no warming up time)... I bought a couple of led bulbs a while back, and it took 30 seconds for it to be fully bright ...

This set should be fine for good light diffusing, yes Smilie The base is nice and low, which allows light to shine out in most directions. The CREE has an even lower base, but I'm not sure you'll notice a large difference between these lights and the CREE as far as overall light shining in all directions.

I find that hard to believe anywhere in the United States. Got a few yards of solar panels do ya? How much did that cost? Thousands?

Very true. I just had my second kitchen light (CFL) from Home Depot go. Bought them both brand new 2 years ago. Ecosmart bulbs, btw.

Maybe I am just hard on my bulbs! They get turned on and off probably >10 times per day. Thanks for this deal post I ordered a couple of packs.

Rather how much was the upfront solar power system and labor.

LED bulbs are not cost effective enough unless you will use it alot. For me, I brought a 9.5w 60w equivalent cree bulb from HD for $10. I used it on my hallway which is turned on 24/7. It is on for about 1.5 months and still working fine. Maybe I will recoop my savings in maybe 2.5 years compared to a 13w cfl? That's just in the best case senario. All my other bulbs are still using cfl's.unless led's go down in price significantly.

Keep an eye out for sales like this one. I believe LEDs will get cheaper fairly quickly, now that they're starting to become much more available. I typically buy them if there's a good sale. Otherwise, I just space them out. Buying 2 a month won't break my bank Wink I keep my front and rear exterior lights on every night. Same with family room light.

supposedly these has a mean life of 22.8 years (Based on 3 hrs/day). so 50% chance you get longer than that.
