Looks like a regular bulb, acts like an energy saving bulb and is safer too

Pharox looks like a regular bulb, acts like an LED

Maybe you’re with me on the CFL twisty bulbs – they are ugly and the light they put out is funky.  When lemnis lighting submitted their Phaorox LED bulb for review, I knew my prayers had been answered!  Finally, an eco-friendly, energy-saving lightbulb that LOOKS great too!

  • Looks more like a regular lightbulb – the kind I have known and loved all my life.
  • Lasts LONGER than a CFL – 8 TIMES longer, in fact!  Enjoy 50,000 hours of this beauty.  50 incandescents = 8 CFLs = 1 LED

    Wow, that’s great to see a light bulb that finally produces nice light. I think I’d have to see one first before dropping $34 on a light bulb. Did they send you a sample to evaluate?

    I actually don’t have any problem with CFLs (especially low-mercury versions like the Sylvania Micro-Mini Twist (http://www.1greenproduct.com/2008/05/home-do-micro-mini-twist.html), and I think CFLs are a good option for lots of homeowners.

    If you have a little more money to spend upfront though, I agree that LED bulbs like the Pharox LED are probably the way to go. If your readers are interested in another take on the Pharox bulb, we just published a full review on 1GreenProduct.com – http://tinyurl.com/d2ar8o

    If your readers are looking for a slightly brighter LED bulb, the 7-watt EarthLED ZetaLux (50-60 watt incandescent replacement) could be a good option, although we haven’t had a chance to test the ZetaLux first-hand…
