Earth Day 2012 - New LED Bulbs

Philips L Prize LED Bulbs

In honor of Earth Day, today April 22, Philips will start selling their new LED bulb that sets a new bar for performance -- and price.

Named the L Prize LED, this bulb will set you back a cool $60, but there’s an "automatic incentive" from the company for $10 so it’s only really $50.  The name of the bulb refers to the Department of Energy's L Prize competition to develop long-lasting, efficient, and less expensive LED lamps.

Philips claims its L Prize LED is the most efficient 60-watt LED equivalent and improves on features from Philips own existing LEDs.   They claim the bulb will last 30,000 hours (equivalent of 20 years if used 4 hours per day).  This LED bulb rates very close to conventional bulbs in color temperature and lumens.

So while it’s not what I would consider affordable, the company states that this bulb will save you $165.00 over its lifetime.

What do you think?  Are you ready to pay $600.00 for a twelve pack of these bulbs?

You can buy an iPad for less than $600 which is worth more than 12 lightbulbs! IMHO, overpriced!
