The closest store to Marco Island that has them is 70 miles away...All the local HD have zero. HD doesn't ship it either. Even all of Ft. Lauderdale...zero. It's too long and delicate to carry on the plane if I buy in Los Angeles so it looks like I have to travel one hour to get two of these...not worth it at this point. HD also buries the CREE brand when flourescent equivs are brought up...not in the "manufacturers" list in some menus. CREE needs to crank up the provisions of their contract or provide suggestions to HD. HD seems to be pushing Philips in a big way.
The secret will be in the heat sink and the technology that allows higher core temps. When they finally get it; I'll repost this Mar 6, 15 message and buy that Svorski crystal chandelier I've always wanted. Instead of 600w .... 80w.
We really need a 60w equivalent and that would be possible I think with the more efficient chips they have come out with. Using 4Flow technology and some aesthetic creativity they could blow the Philips, Feit, GE units off the market.
