I saw these bulbs at Home Depot the other day for $20 and decided to try one. I’d read that this style of LED lighting didn’t suffer from the directional issues the ones I’m currently using do. I used a 100 watt incandescent (I was too lazy to go find a 40 watt), a 14 watt CFL, and this 8.6 watt LED. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Videos coming soon. One other big note — there’s NO DELAY in turning this LED light on like my others. Instant-on and instant-full-power. Awesome!
