Green Geek’s Dream: Philips Master LED Light Bulb

Isn’t this the coolest looking light bulb you’ve ever seen? Philips’ new Master LED light bulb gives as much light as a conventional 40-watt bulb, but with a 45,000-hour lifespan, four times as much as a CFL and a total power consumption of seven watts. However, with a price tag of $50 to $70 per unit, replacing all light sources in your home with LED light bulbs could become quite the project. The Master LED Light Bulbs are already on sale in Europe, but we won’t see them here in North America until next July.

  1. 40 watts. I think that was the size of the light bulb for my Lavalamp. Seriously. And this would make a poor replacement for it. The 60 watt CFL bug lights I've got right now aren't bright enough. I'm using mostly CFLs right now, but there are too many situations where they just aren't bright enough. And I've got one lamp that will only use an incandescent due to needing a 200 watt size bulb just to work. But that's on a rheostat, so it's not that bright 99% of the time.

    • i thought the 40w equivalent LED wouldn't be enough light but i'm very happy. i just installed one in an overhead light for our basement stair along with 3-4 additional overhead fixtures. the light is perfect. if that's not enough, i also am using six candelabra LEDs in two decorative fixtures. they're really much better than expected.

  3. I've been using LED lights for years now. My whole house is powered by solar panels that charges batteries. LED last almost forever and consume little power.

    I'd consider a 200watt light overkill and throw it in the recycle bin!
