Cons: Very POOR reliability

Disclosure up front - I do not have this exact model of bulb.

I do however have many other models they sell.  Some are very reliable and some are very unreliable.  I have had many failures of defective bulbs and LEDLight.com is refusing to replace them.  They admit that some of their products have known reliability issues, but still refuse to replace or refund.  I am very discouraged and out a lot of money.  BEWARE of LEDLight.com.  They do NOT stand behind their products.

Pros: none

Cons: After flickering for a year, the bulb died. $60 a year for a light buld is a ripoff.

Pros: low power, omnidirectional

Cons: not very bright, uneven light

At 120 lumens this LED lamp is about equivalent to a 15-20-watt incandescent light bulb.  It would make a great nightlight for a bathroom or hallway (for example), as it only consumes 1.5 watts (and thus has an efficacy of 80 lumens per watt, pretty good for an LED lamp).  I measured it with my Watt's Up meter and it registered at 1.4-1.5 watts.  The light it casts is uneven though (bright spots here and there), but for purposes of a nightlight that will be less of a problem than for general illumination.

 

Cost-per-megalumen-hour comes out like this, using $0.10/kWh and assuming a 60,000-hour lifetime (which I am not convinced is the case but the people at LEDLight.com tell me that all their LED lamps have this same lifetime):

 

initial-dollars: 17
watts-consumed: 1.5
dollars-per-kwh: .1
thousand-hours: 60
average-lumens: 102
dollars-per-mlh = 4.24837

 

For reference, a really good CFL comes out near $2.50/mlh and a really good LED lamp is around $3.00/mlh (as of the time of this review), again using $0.10/kWh as the cost of electricity.
