I found these at my local St.Louis Mo store.....Very YMMV but wanted to give everyone a heads up as these are great bulbs at a heck of a price.

Had to go to Michigan to get them (I live in Austin, TX). Pays to have nice relatives to pick them up for me!

If you investigate them, you will see that these are the best inexpensive LED bulbs. My home is almost all LED now!

Personally I liked these better. Uses a tad bit more wattage but a better color.

Also helps that they're subsidized by me while the other ones are not!

Those appear to cost 3x as much though as the other Cree bulbs.

I've never used an LED bulb inside my house and I currently have all CFL coils in my fixtures and am curious about how well LED's throw light comparatively speaking.

Are the Lumen ratings on these LED's pretty accurate across the board when comparing them against other bulb types?

For example... I have some 1300 Lumen 2700K CFL coil bulbs in track lighting in my bedroom. They are only on one end of the room but throw plenty of light to light up the whole long length of the octagonal shaped room. Cree makes either 60 or 75W equivalent bulbs, and their Lumen ratings are 800 and 1100 respectively. I'm just curious if switching from my current CFL's to the 75W LED's would have a real significant dropoff in brightness as a result of something related to the LED technology and how it throws light.

Thoughts?

Love the CRI, hate the price and that it uses more energy than a CFL, if only marginally.

I'm really looking forward to the day we have 6W or less 60W equivalent LED bulbs. Heck, we should have it now. Nanolight makes a 12W 1800 lumen bulb, a 6W 900 lumen thing should be just as possible.

But those standard old bulbs are a Godsend in the wintertime(northeastern part of the US here) as they throw off some residual heat that cuts out heating bill if ever by the most miniscule of fractions. Wink

Residual heat? More than 90% of the energy consumed by a tungsten filament light bulb is used to produce heat. A typical incandescent light bulb has about 3% efficiency. i.e. Only 3% of the energy consumed is used towards generating light.

So, it is mainly a heater. Light is just the side effect.

Typical electric heater has about 100% efficiency. i.e. all of the energy consumed is used towards generating heat.

3% is the difference between an electric heater and an incandescent light bulb.
