HD is currently running these on "sale" in store. Still a bit pricey but I have the floods installed outside and like them. I just replaced the 6- 75w equivalent halogen bulbs in my garage with the 60w l.e.ds. Much better lighting. So far, I'm happy. Time will tell if it was worthwhile.

I wish that I could have got some of those..

But, I'm now the proud owner of some 75Weq LEDs (not outdoor type) floods
and I really like the in-store price tag..

One of those in-store sales..

How much did you pay for those Cree 9.5-Watt eq65W blubs, in-store?

I may be going up to Home Depot to look at Toro snow throwers for my kid.

Cree - Light Bulbs - Electrical*at The Home Depot

The floods I got were a bit pricey($19.95), but I had a store credit that helped offset the price.

Is that a repurposed garbage can?

Go recycling!
