led that really works!
This review is from: Philips 422238 40 Watt Equivalent LED Light Bulb
Pros: don't let the lumens fool you this light design really works just like a regular incandescent light bulb, unlike others which just brighten a small area this one bulb can illuminate an entire room. fits in most standard light bulb fixtures slightly longer than a regular 40w bulb. bulb is completely solid state; no gas no mercury no starters and mean time before failure is rated at 25000 hr use, or 22.4 yrs at 3hrs a day, thats impressive.
Cons: up front cost is high vs. a CFL of equivalent value, this bulb generates a fair amount of heat and requires installation in an open fixture only, also recommended not to leave on constantly, it needs a cooling period so that the led lights will not degrade over time.
Other Thoughts: bought this same light bulb as open box and it worked just fine saved a few dollars, they have dropped the price down and if your not into changing light bulbs this is definitely an alternative you could try. I will mention a light bulb of similar design by Phillips won the L prize, this is not that light bulb for those who are looking.
