1000 bulbs
« on: November 05, 2012, 08:02:19 AM »
   About a year ago, I was looking for replacements for the bulbs in our church hall.  Mogul base,
used to be 500W, had been downgraded to 300W.  (power cost)
  Ordered 105W,  5000K, 68 lumens/watt from 1000 bulbs.  After a year, functioning without flaw,
and everyone can see again.
  Did have to order 12 to get the good price, but a few spares is usually a good thing.
  The process with 1000 Bulbs went  without a hitch.
  Based on this one order, I would recommend them.

I used them a few times for unusual, semi-propritary, bulbs that were almost impossible to find (except at a crazy high price from the machine manufacturer).
Went smooth for me too.

I use 120w floodlights
the biggest I can find at Wal-Mart or Home Depot is 90w
I can get them at 1000bulbs for about $8 each which is real good
I remember getting bit a little hard with the shipping costs though
