Deal Details

Edit: As of Tuesday morning 3/4/14, this item appears to be available again. I had only ordered one for shipping yesterday, and I stopped by two different stores yesterday afternoon, but couldn't find any. Today, they seem to be available again for either shipping or store pickup.
I'd never seen this product until today, but it seems like a great idea at a very reasonable price, if you can get it in-store or order multiples (see below) to get free shipping.
I would describe it as a light fixture with built-in LED "bulbs", but it can also be used to convert bare-bulb fixtures (like those often seen in garages/basements) into nicer-looking fixtures. If you don't have a fixture in place, it comes with all hardware necessary for a new-construction installation. Check out some of the HD customer reviews with attached pictures - I found these to be very helpful. Fixtures (sans bulb) of this style are usually close to $10, so the fact that this comes with LED illumination for that price surprised me.

This showed $9.98 for me whether I selected store pickup or shipping. This price appears to be consistent at least across much of NY state, but stores in a few other states I checked show $19.96.
NOTE: to get the $9.98 price outside of NY, you need to order 5 (or pad your order to $45 with other ship-able items), and set your store to zip 14207 (store #1234, which I thought was cool). I went most of the way through the checkout process with an out-of-state shipping address, and it appeared to keep the $9.98 price. Please report back if this works for you! If you do order 5 of these, pad your order up over $50 (this Sharpie [homedepot.com]is $0.97) to take advantage of the current $5 off $50 coupon.

Not sure why the term "fluorescent" is in the product description - the illuminators are clearly LEDs.
HD seems to be the only retailer, so I couldn't figure out how to compare prices, other than the reported markdown from $24.96 on HD's page.

I bought one of these over the weekend and tried it out. Great light output and super easy to install if just replacing an existing light bulb. There is a half second delay from turning it on before the light comes on. It also isn't good for anyone using a pull chain on the light. I needed it for my closet that has a pull chain. The pull chain catches on the housing of the light and would probably rib the entire fixture down. I'll unfortunately have to return this now.

Similar price to LED bulb when you find a very good sale. This works for those old Porcelain sockets where you also have a light switch not just pull chain. Looks way nicer and protects the bulb.

Closet should not have exposed bulb anyway, since you can bump if shelves too close.This solves that issue, but protecting the bulbs. Cool at this price.

While I regrettably have no use for this (no naked bulbs in my house), am TU on this thread for:
1. Detailed and thoughtful post, and
2. Cool product.

In that order...

Jason (just a guess, sorry if my pig latin assumption is off...),
Regarding the pull chain, if you really want to keep the fixture, it is not too hard to rig something to redirect the chain/string. You could just put a screw eye [homedepot.com] in the ceiling (preferably into a joist, not just drywall), thread the string through the eye, and that will serve as a pulley, while keeping the chain from rubbing on the fixture. I just did this in my son's bedroom, which has a pull-chain fixture in the middle of the room, and no easy way to wire a switch by the door: I put a screw eye in the wall above the door, and used a long piece of nylon string to extend the pull switch, which lets the end of the string dangle right next to the door. This way the chain no longer rubs on the fixture, and we have convenient access to the switch as soon as we enter the room. Just be sure there are no barbs or rough spots on the screw eye, and use some sort of string that doesn't stretch at all.

Bought 6 of these to hope to brighten my garage without increasing my electricity bill.. I currently only have 2 CFL's..and it is very dark..usually turn on the garage door light to help..

Anybody have these yet to know if they do compare to a 60w incandescent or if 6 of these baby's will light up a 2 car garage in the dark?

no listing on the number of lumens these push, but it's home depot so you could try and see and if you don't like 'em, you can just return them no problem

good find, so yeah, that's about as much light as 1 60 watt incandescent or 1 13 watt cfl (60 watt replacement)
