"Customer" reviews:

You can barely feel the vibrate function when it's concealed. Bluetooth reception is okay but using the small buttons while it's concealed is nearly impossible. I just don't have that kind of muscle control.

I've been extremely satisfied with this phone's call quality. Unfortunately it seems extremely easy to accidentally butt dial your contacts in circumstances where the phone might get randomly poked a few times in a row. My mom was terribly confused and I had a lot of explaining to do.

I just found a new bulb that appears to fix all of those problems. These new bulbs ahve the same filament technology, except they have a large metal heat sink above the base. The heat sink disperses the heat, so they should last longer, and the large heat sink is big enough to contain a capacitor that will even out the current and stop the flickering. The price is also much more reasonable at $3.80 per bulb.

OK. Fuck this filament LED technology in a candelabra bulb bullshit.

In the 6 months since I bought the latest round of LED bulbs that I thought would be good, 3 of the 6 have failed. The candelabra bulb is just too small to dissipate the heat.

So I have moved on to a third style of bulb. This is similar to the Cree that tw recommended. The new kind I am trying have been reviewed by thousands of Amazon customers and most give it great reviews. The few who complain all have the same story. Some bulbs failed after a short while, but the manufacturer was happy to replace them.

So that's who I am going with. They don't look like traditional bulbs, but with a shade over them you can't tell. The color is good. And return instructions are right in the box of bulbs for if/when they fail.

I've probably spent $100 over the last few years trying to save a few cents of electricity. I feel like a moron. But I am honest with you about it so you don't follow in my path. At least not until I succeed.
