Cyber Monday 2014 Deals

Nov 27, 14 Cyber Monday 2014 Deals

Every year you’ll find fantastic deals for Black Friday.  And while we’re as glad as any to give you access to huge discounts on products, we know that the long lines, early mornings, and cold weather following a sedate Thanksgiving can be a huge shock to the system (not to mention the ferocious press of people all seeking the same great deals in-store).  That’s why we recommend the relaxed and warm environment of Cyber Monday, so you can get great deals from the comfort of your couch.  At 1000Bulbs.com we have something for everyone, from commercial fixtures and residential lighting to Christmas decorations and the ubiquitous AA battery.  But it’s best to plan ahead since access to all of these great prices is only on December 1, 2014, and once they go live, they’ll sell out fast!

Beat the Winter Blues with Lighting

Nov 24, 14 Beat the Winter Blues with Lighting

With the fall season in full swing, and winter just on the horizon, the daylight hours are shorter, reducing the amount of sunlight we get daily.  This lack of natural lighting has the unintended effect of triggering seasonal affective disorder (SAD) in certain every fall and winter.  This seasonal depression can remove the joy from what should otherwise be great seasons.  Fortunately, if you suffer from SAD, adding more light to your life can work as a remedy.  You’ve probably seen advertisements for SAD lamps with full spectrum lighting, however, what makes them different from any other light bulb or lamp?

Nov 21, 14 GE Doesn’t Disappoint with New 100W Replacement LED

When 100W incandescent bulbs were banned nearly two years ago due to rising efficiency standards, many replacement LEDs rose to the task of providing the same level of brightness while using less power. But as we all know, not all LED bulbs are created equal. According to a recent review by CNET, GE’s new 100W Equal LED is one of the best of these replacements.
