however, at $ 20.00 each, and only putting out the equivalent of 65 watts it's not going to be a hot item for the homeowner yet, IMO.
It's way too expensive, since it's cost/lifetime use factor, at the manufactures' own admittance, is(compared to a standard light bulb) roughly $ 6.60 at the worst, and $ 3.30 at best.
when is the last time you were willing to pay even the cheapest $ 3.30 for a standard 65 watt light bulb.
And it's also great that it can be dimmed, however at 65 watts output, you most likely aren't going to be using a dimmer all that much. A 65 watt spotlight is not going to throw that much light.
I hope this technology takes off quickly, since we all need a better type of efficient/environmentally friendly option for home lighting, whats out there now is a good start, but not where we need to be yet!
LEDS don't last long either they seam to fail prematurely also like in flashlights etc. $20 for a light bulb is expensive but i think once production increased prices will go down. calculators used to cost 100's of dollars when they first came out now you can find them for $1.
