LED bulbs hit 100 watts

Two leading makers of lighting products are showcasing LED bulbs that are bright enough to replace energy-guzzling 100-watt light bulbs set to disappear from stores in January.

  11. Nice, but... What kind of light do LED bulbs shed? I know I absolutely hate fluorescent light. It makes everyone look like zombies... O-o
    Hopefully these look a lot nicer.

  14. 50 dollars is a little much for a light bulb. But I think eventually they will get cheaper and replace our normal light bulbs completely
