Last week, I decided to look at a simple look at the lamp aisle within my local Home Depot, in order to see if there was anything new. I met a master electrician that was working that department, coupled with just finished generating a display of decorative fixtures by using a variety of LED lamps now bought from the shop. I told him that I is at the industry, and asked him what he looked at them. “Some are very ugly,” he said bluntly.

Referring to one that he said looked like a “bug light,” he continued with “people should not buy that bulb and place it into any kind of light where you can view it. And look at that PAR lamp. That’s ugly too.” He was discussing the noticeable spots in the LED chips showing with the diffuser. “It’s just ugly.”
