compact fluorescent light bulb (cfl) failures – from Home Depot and Costco suck


I replaced all of the incandescent bulbs in my house about 2.5 years ago with CFL’s in an attempt to save energy and be “green”. Unfortunately, the burnout rate on the bulbs that Home Depot and Costco are selling aren’t just high.. they are so high that it makes these bulbs a total ripoff that costs you more money in the end.

These bulbs were also UNQUALIFIED from the energy star compliance list.

Here’s a good thread with pictures and some technical explanations.
