Inching towards mediocrity.


Let there be (energy efficient) light!

LED lightbulbs are brighter, last longer, and are more environmentally responsible then your regular, run-of-the-mill lightbulb. This we know, and one thing more – they’re also wicked expensive.

Until now.

Lower your price, sir!

Seemingly out of nowhere, Home Depot has premiered a brand spankin’ new LED lightbulb called the EcoSmart LED A19 (not the catchiest name, but whatever) that provides the light equivalency of a forty watt incandescent bulb, while itself only using nine watts – which means it uses about 80% less energy than that same bulb. It’s also dimmable, works in any light socket (no switch-over problems here!) and (supposedly) lasts for twenty-two years. (Though I’m sure that number varies on the bulb’s placement and general, every day use).

And, perhaps most importantly, it retails for only $19.97.

Also, it kind of looks like it's from the future.

While this might not seem to be the Great Bargain that I’m hyping it up to be (especially when you can buy regular incandescent bulbs for about a buck a piece), anyone in “the know” when it comes to LED bulbs (and that’s a very small demographic, I’m sure) knows that they usually retail for fifty dollars or more.

It's all about the Benjamins, baby.

So there’s that.

But, when you really think about it, twenty bucks for a lightbulb that will last you at least twenty years and are much more energy efficient, it seems like a pretty damn good option.
