Staff Picks: Favorite Items from your 1000Bulbs.com Staff

1000Bulbs.com Staff

As customers of 1000Bulbs.com, you applaud us on our amazing prices, outstanding customer service, and our wonderful products. At the same time, have you ever wondered if we use our own products? As consumers, you are probably curious as to what we use. Personally, I am a fan of the collegiate Christmas trees. Nothing represents you more than a Christmas tree featuring your university colors. Here are some other favorites of our staff at 1000Bulbs.com.

 

MaxLite 71211 Plug-and-Play LED Lightbar

Paul G., VP of Business Development

“I have recently remodeled my kitchen; the MaxLite 71211 plug-and-play LED lightbar is easy to install under cabinets and is completely connectable to additional units. I tested low profile fluorescent strips and rope light, and could not find a more pleasing solution aesthetically than the warm glow produced by these fixtures. I am enjoying even, ambient light on 30 feet of granite counter, approximately 4 feet wide, while using only about 24 watts. With LED life expectancy, I am sure this will be a maintenance-free selling feature when we finally decide to downsize.”

Satco S7303 G25 CFL

Beth H., Inventory Planner

“I have a 6-light vanity fixture over my bathroom mirror. It’s always dark, which makes doing hair and make-up challenging. I tried a few bulbs and nothing seemed to be bright enough. I finally found the Satco S7303 CFL bulb, and I absolutely love it! They start off kind of dim when first turned on, but they get brighter once they warm up. My eyeshadow colors, lipsticks & glosses look awesome under these lights. I have recommended these bulbs to friends and family and they love them, too.”

Blue LED Icicle Lights

Adrian L., Customer Service Representative

“For Christmas, I used these blue LED icicle lights on the inside of my windows. My son and I love the color blue, so I figured he would enjoy these draped around the house during the Christmas season. These lights are very bright and visible from a distance. We both truly enjoyed these lights and can’t wait until we can use them again next Christmas.”

Clear A19 Antique Light Bulb

Vivian C., Proactive Customer Service

“I used this antique A19 bulb to make a vintage reading lamp for my friend; it’s pretty bright! It gives off a warm output (240 lumens), but it seemed a bit brighter than the description given. I also used our brass wire cage to add to vintage look of the bulb itself. I loved it; it was the perfect bulb for my special project!”

Rope Light

Charity's Palm Tree

Charity’s Palm Tree

Charity W., Account Manager

“I have used several of our products but I have to say rope light is one of my favorites. I created a palm tree on my fence with green and amber rope light. It is easy to shape into different figures and attaches to most any type of surface. The most popular size is 1/2-inch because you could find accessory pieces easier, but 3/8-inch is easier to mold into more intricate patterns. Either way you will get a nice light design.”

Benona K., HR Manager

“I like my cool white LED rope light. I have it installed underneath my kitchen cabinets. Since it is energy efficient, I leave it on all the time. It gives me extra light on my counter tops for preparing meals and it doubles as a night light when I feel the need for a midnight snack.”
