Customer Questions & Answers

Higher lumens in a 120-watt LED bulb?

I want a very bright LED flood light for an indoor application but I see that the in-store bulbs of that kind that you carry at HomeDepot are in the equivalent of the 65-75-120 watch range. The 120-watt (equivalent) that you have available in-store has pretty much the same lumen range (1200-1300) as the lower wattage LEDs so that isn't really a good option. There is a Polaroid 120-watter that has a 2200 lumen rating that you offer on the Internet only...Is that my only option for more brightness?
Asked by: Avi
the greater number of lumens, the brighter the bulb, but you also have to decide the color of the light, that is warm, cool or daylight. The Polaroid is bright and daylight color, but of the 5 I purchased 2 burned out way too quickly. HD gave me credit for one, the other they made me fight with the manufacturer and it has been over 6 weeks since I complained to Polaroid, even sent them photos, etc. Look for another brand!

120W Equivalent Cool White (4100K) PAR38 Dimmable Indoor/Outdoor LED Flood Light Bulb is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Product - When It's Warm Outside! So here's the deal. I purchased this back in late April. I live in Pennsylvania. All summer long this worked absolutely great. Never had an issue and the lumens output and beam pattern are great! However, as it started to get cold over the past two weeks the light has started to slowly strobe at night. This isn't the cool, party strobe effect, though. It's a slow strobe. I spoke with Home Depot's supplier on these and they stated this is a known issue. In short, if you live in a climate where temps do not drop below 50 degrees F, this is the light for you! It rocks! However, if you're anywhere else expect this light not to function properly in cold weather. Because of the lack of cold weather functionality it gets an overall rating of 2 starts. (Photo is of a CREE brand LED that Home Depot Offers as well as this Polaroid LED. I have done a comparison video on YouTube)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Polaroid Par 38 LED PLPAR38W (Strobe Effect in Cold Weather) This was a decent light for us until the end of summer, once the middle of fall hit and temps dropped, the light started doing this strobing effect. If you're thinking about buying this one and live near the equator you should be fine, but if you're anywhere that temps drop at night during winter, I cannot recommend this bulb even though everything else about it was outstanding. Watch the video and imagine going through an entire season where the strobe light comes on when you flick the switch. No thanks. The world of LED lighting has come a LONG way -- before this issue I liked the light output a ton better than older halogen bulb, and it was costing me less than a penny a day to run. Still, just wanted to give you guys a heads up. Please let me know if you have better recommendations for exterior lighting that has already been tested and works in colder weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very bright This lamp puts out a lot of bright light. Far better then any CFL flood we have tried. The packaging stated that it was equivalent to 150w incandescent, and I believe it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bright LED bulb I ordered 5 of these bulbs. Initially they were all that I could have expected, very bright and wonderful. I did not find a competitive product available with that number of lumens and daylight color. Within 3 weeks, though one bulb stopped working. I returned it and got credit. For that price I would not expect this to happen. Now I am worried that the others might stop also. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super bright white light These flood light are awesome. I have replaced all of my old yellow dull lights with these and now my half acre back yard is lit up like a baseball field at night. Have no problems with them not starting up fast like some have reported and they have been going strong for over a year now. Highly recommend if you want bright white light. Just wish they were a little less expensive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A great light, when it works! I purchased 5 of these from Home Depot via the internet. It took a little longer than expected to receive them, but that was not the problem. I put 4 of them into use and within a couple of months the first bulb died. I returned it to my local store and received credit for it. Luckily I had an extra one that I ordered, so it wasn't that much of an inconvenience. After about of year of use, another bulb died. This time the local store said that I would have to go to the manufacturer and they gave me a contact. I reached out to the manufacturer's rep and it took several weeks until I received a reply. They wanted the receipt and photos of the bulb in lace. Then I waited another 2 weeks and was told that they would send a replacement. Two weeks later I called and was told "there are none in the warehouse," I was told that as soon as there were any, I would receive one. It is now over a month since that information, still no replacement. I will never buy another Polaroid product, and suggest you stay clear of this bulb. It is a shame, because it is a great, bright, right color temperature for good use in areas needing such, but not at that price and lack of dependability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 120W EQUIVALENT COOL WHITE (4100K) PAR38 DIMMABLE INDOOR/OUTDOOR LED FLOOD LIGHT BULB This light is very bright and it works well for a driveway lamp. Only one problem, after only a day of service the lamp began to act like a strobe lamp. This happened intermittently so it had to be replaced.
