I recently got the opportunity to try out some of Sylvania SuperSaver Halogen light bulbs.

Here are some cool facts:

*They are made in the US!!!
*Fully dimmable unlike the new CFLS
*Uses 22-33% less energy than incandescent light bulbs
*No Mercury
*Instant ON (no waiting for CFL's to warm up)

When I was opening the package and it said 43 Watt-I was confused...Id never heard of that before...but it is using less energy than the 65 Watt but using less energy...they were so bright we couldn't use 3 of these in out bathroom fixture without needing sunglasses...seriously.

I am definitely sold on the amount of light these babies put out, but not sure we will see an energy savings unless we switched the whole house to these kind of light bulbs.

We are impressed that they can be dimmed and would love to replace the ones in our basement and try these out, we end up having to unscrew the CFL's down there when watching a movie since there is too much light-since we forgot we couldn't dim CFL's but installed a 6 dimmable can lights=(

Check em out!
