what a crazy world.... the philips led's are really cool tho.. we keep 6 on hand for critical spares of the 12 that were put in the office recessed celing cans.... they are ok for lights in a office area BUT......

at $85 bucks a pop ...no cheap affair :shock: makes the bean counters feel all "green" and such 8-)

0POUIPUortpwermg WHAAAAT???? :eek2: $85??? :fear:

Sorry I just had a mild stroke! Looks like LED's are NOT in my future.

It took auto manufactures forever to start using them in cars ... and they still don't use them 100%. I remember the first ones failing left & right, mostly on the Cadillac's & the round ones on tractor-trailers. Also several LED traffic signals failed around here the same way - you have 8 LED's and 6 of them don't work, and one is flickering & dim. Looks like they've worked those bugs out. But why $85???

Yep, Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007, Obama's fault. And to top it all off it will become world wide, & we are behind many.

That's determined by the free market Smitty, surely you don't believe that he should meddle in that, after all that's what the right wants. Younz talk a good line about free trade & open markets as long as it's tax free & there are only a few big markets left open.

Without all the politics, there is someone who is still selling the bulbs but as heaters for farm animals like chickens.
