Jodi Marks: You know, I love these displays over here in the lighting department because it just gives me so many fun things to play with. And if you’re in the market for a light bulb, look no further than right here.
Now, this is the Philips SlimStyle LED light. I love this thing. Look, I’ve got it for display here. And you can see it’s got the round shape of a typical light bulb. The LED lights are dimmable. I’m going to go up one more time, and bring it right back down. Look how bright that is.
You would think that because using an LED light bulb, it doesn’t pull as much power, you’re not going to get as much brightness to the bulb, but that’s not true. This right here replaces a 60-watt incandescent bulb. And you can see when I was dimming it, I mean, it gets really bright.
I think the best thing about this, though, is it doesn’t cost as much money to operate one of these. This thing can last, they say, about 22 and a half years. That’s about 25,000 hours of light time. And do you know, to run this bulb over that time is going to cost you under $30. That’s amazing.
So, not only is it bright, it’s beautiful, it can be used in floor lamps and also in table lamps. Its going to save you a lot of money, too.
