As some of you may or may not know, I’ve moved to the Dallas area primarily to attend the local university. This means living on my own for the first time and anyone who’s been through that adventure knows the headaches that come with utility bills all too well.
During this time of electronic dependency, this is especially true. When it comes to saving a little money here and there: anything helps and this is where Toshiba’s latest LED Light Bulb comes in handy. When Cali and John P. unboxed a set of these on GeekBeat LIVE, I was very skeptical on how much of an improvement over a regular light bulb it could be. Now, I wouldn’t use anything else, especially after calculating the costs.

This is a Bright Idea
Though it’s a fairly hefty investment right off the shelf, I think GU10 LED bulbs are a great choice if you’re looking to save some money on your energy bills in the long haul. Especially if you often keep the light on. Just a final side-note: The bulb gives off a softer light at 300 lumens at 2700 kelvin which felt a lot better on the eyes, even at the higher equivalent output level. We’re at the point where regular light bulbs just make no economic sense and I am nothing but pleased with the Toshiba 7W LED A19.
If you’d like you give them a try yourself, you can pick up individual bulbs on Amazon via This Link.
