Reno, NV, has had these at $3.97 for some time. Not a bad bulb, but I can't vouch for the actual length of use. If it is anything like the CFLs that die about a year into their "7-year" life, $4 is still too expensive. I just wish these were the 100-watt bulbs. I swear, our house is like a dungeon with all these low-lumen bulbs.

Anyone know if anything near NJ has them for the 3.97? check out osaka75s recent thread regarding changing your "my store" location on the home dep0t website to see if the price is lower at a particular store location.
shaggyucla said: what zip code has them for 3.97? I checked Reno and colonia (New Jersey) and no go! They are in-store in Reno and are $3.97 because NV Energy is picking up the difference. I'm assuming that is the case in other areas. It's not the normal price or even a Home Depot sale, but a local energy utility subsidy.

I haven't noticed a hum with ours, but my Mom mentioned the bulbs she had purchased made a little noise. Not sure if that is the norm for LED or just for cheap ones. I've had CFLs that have driven me crazy from the noise.
These bulbs are expensive compared to CFL or incandescent bulbs. The savings can be huge if your house pulls a lot of electricity via CFL or regular bulbs. On Amazon, I paid $40 for 8 LED bulbs. Hopefully, I will realize enough savings to pay for the bulbs in one-two years.

Switching from incandescent to CFL years ago really did result in a noticeable difference in our power bill. I always bought the bulbs when they were on sale, so it was still a realized savings. The only problem was that it was rare if one of those "7-year" bulbs made it past its first birthday. That has always been the rub with me. They just don't last. I'm hoping LED technology will improve the real life, not the advertised.
