Every time I drive by there I get angry and sad, seeing all the 'green' gone. Now what do we get to Read Morelook at? A big cinder-block box. Lovely...NOT!! We DON'T need more retail, another bank and mattress store? Really? I have a feeling this is a preview of what's to come with the parcel the city owns.

What happened to the "smart growth" and proper planning promised by our new city??? Read MoreAlmos t everything going into that strip mall is unnecessary and already available within a short distance from this site. Sorry, but aside from "Sprouts" I don't see anything to get excited about. What a waste of greenspace, and what an utter shame that this type of development is allowed to continue unimpeded. I thought the City of PTC truly wanted to thwart the "Golden Rule of Gwinnett" ("Thou shalt not stand between a developer and a tree").

Hi Mary. Yes, you have an excellent point! Not many people only leave a light on for just 3 hours Read Moreper day! That is why all light bulbs (including LED, traditional incandescent, CFFL, etc.) specify the life of a bulb in 2 different ways. The first way is to specify the total number of hours, and the second way is to specify the total number of years based on 3 hours per day. This is an industry standard for all light bulbs, so consumers can look at the boxes and compare "apples-to-apples". A similar approach is taken when calculating and comparing yearly energy costs. As you said, always make sure you read the fine print on the boxes and that a fair comparison is being performed! Thanks for pointing this out!

Hey Jack, Great looking site, great information. How do the Feit bulbs compare to the Cree's atRead MoreHom e Depot?

Thanks for the kind words, and this is an excellent question! Cree has a limited offering ofRead Moreconsum er bulb types available at Home Depot. For example, they only offer the standard A-Series (A19 & A21) and BR-Series (BR30) shapes, whereas Feit offers a large variety of types and shapes including the following: A-Series, R/BR-Series, PAR-Series, G-Series, Candelabra, G4, Wedge, Linear Tube, T-Series, C-Series, and more! Since these designators for bulb types and shapes might be confusing to the typical consumer, we offer a unique "Bulb Shape" guide on our website that makes shopping easier! From a technical standpoint, the bulbs are very similar in performance with the exception of one very important feature which has to do with the reliability and life of the bulbs. LED bulbs consume much less power than the traditional incandescent bulb and run much cooler; however, they still generate heat. This heat must be efficiently dissipated by the bulb in order to prevent the internal electronics from getting too hot and prematurely failing. The heatsink designs (the fins around the base of the bulb) from Feit are superior in design and keep the electronics cooler resulting in higher reliability and a longer bulb life! This becomes especially important when considering bulbs that are partially or fully enclosed in various types of light fixtures. Even though both manufacturers may specify the same or a similar bulb life expectancy, these values assume the bulb is in open air (not enclosed in a fixture) which is almost never the case in real life. Some manufacturers of LED bulbs try and keep the size of the heatsink fins to a minimum in an attempt to make the LED bulb look as close as possible to a traditional incandescent bulb. This is not good from a technical standpoint. It may look more appealing, but those heatsink fins are very important! Feit also offers a 3-way LED bulb for table and floor lamps. These things are incredible! Visit our website if you want to learn more about the Remote Phosphor Technology used in this amazing bulb. There is actually a short video you can watch about this technology. Just do a search on our website for the Feit “A30-100R-LED” bulb. From a cost standpoint, it’s hard for us to compete with a monster like Home Depot, but we try and do our best by providing outstanding technical and customer support, and free shipping to our neighbors anywhere in the state of Georgia! This allows you the convenience of shopping while kicked back in your recliner!
