The HD looks like maybe they have an A19 rough service bulb. Walmart did not have anything that looked like a conventional $1.00ish 75 watt light bulb. What am i missing since you all say they are everywhere. Last time I was at lowes I should of been shopping for light bulbs on Mar's looking for an old fashioned 75 watt light bulb?

And why do or would I want them? Well, that is just how it is guys. Sorry if that has a negative impact on you. Wink

Jimmy123x, shoot me an email for location if you would consider shipping. Probably be $12-$15 to ship a box I would guess.
If I don't hear from you no problem.

Thanks guys.


You can find them online all over the place.
I use only old style incandescent light bulbs.
Example:
www.lightbulbsdirect.com

And no, I am not going to switch.

Ace Hardware near me usually has 60s.

Am I the only one that has a problem with the LEDs buzzing? I bought a pack at Walmart and put them in the bathrooms and they just buzz. I waited for my bride to complain but she couldn't hear it over her tinnitus. Drives me nuts though. Maybe it's just the brand I bought.

ORC, which state do you live in? The federal law was repealed. I bought boxes and boxes of bulbs because of the risk from mercury.

He say's "Oh yea, we just got some in and they are going like mad." He walks over to the shelf and low and hehold there are 60, 75 and 100 watters. Four packs for under a $1 a piece. Wow, just like the good ole' days. SWEEEEEEEET!

Bought about $40 worth. My elderly father was with me and say's. "That otta last you a couple of life times Big Grin

That is my story and I am stick'in to it.

Thanks again for all the info guys.

If you get the store brand LED bulbs at Home Depot, if they stop working you can take them back and they replace it, no receipt and no questions asked. At least, that's what they told me.

I think the store brand is EcoSmart?

I just bought a new house and promptly changed out every bulb to LED. Recycle bin is full of about a hundred bulbs if you want them, they pick up about 2pm

I had also planned to lay in a big stock of incandescent bulbs before they disappeared, but then I found that their lifespan had (fairly suddenly, as if by design) deteriorated significantly. So I've been gradually switching over to LEDs as the old bulbs die off. I just wish there was an LED manufacturer whose location doesn't end with "China".

FYI, Home Depot kicked ass on the LED prices, most times half of what Mao mart and Lowes wanted for them. The Ecosmart brand. $11 for an eight pack 60w equivalent and $10 for a 4 pack 60w dimmable. The globe shaped ones and the floods were the biggest price difference.

I avoid LED's like the plaque.

Plenty of traditional bulbs still available.

Yes, I know, my electric bill is $2.17 more per month with traditional bulbs.... Big Grin
