          I use mine on the end of my desk to provide supplemental lighting. It provides strong, white light, just what I was looking for. My desk has a thin top, so the clamp grips perfectly. It doesn't look elegant, more industrial than anything else, but it doesn't clash with anything else in my home office. I would say it looks minimalist. I am very happy with it.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Nice Design, Very Bright

          This is a novelty item that is purely decorative. If you want a distinctive look about your house, and don't mind taking the time to unscrew all of your cover plates (flat head screwdriver) around your house; and then installing these, the unseen plate uses Phillips head screws, and then you snap on the cover plates. In my opinion you either go all in and do your entire house or don't do it at all. The outside plates unsnap easily if you need to replace an underlying switch.

          AGT 3-piece matching luggage in navy blue. They are handsome to look at, have an excellent handle, are all expandable if needed to add extra space for the souvenirs you buy while on travel, have TSA approved locks built into the 2 larger suitcases, light weight, and all have easy rolling spinner wheels. I have not used hard sided luggage for many years but I am looking forward to future travels with this luggage.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design

          ECOSMART 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          ECOSMART 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          The EcoSmart PAR30 9.5-Watt LED Light Bulb can be used to replace any PAR 30 or 75-Watt bulb with a standard E26 base. This Daylight LED bulb uses only 9.5-Watt of power while emitting 680 lumens of clear, clean, bright light. It is estimated that this bulb saves an estimated $180 in energy costs over the course of its life. On average the bulb lasts 22 years (or 25,000 hours of use). This light can be dimmed for convenient light customization, which further helps conserve energy over the life of the bulb.

          Is it a 75 watt bulb equivalency or is it a 70 watt bulb equivalency ?

          Also this says energy star on it whereas others one up one down same manufacturer just more bulbs in box one does not state they are energy star bulbs for those --- even though led -- and text look a likes thus is the text description missing it or is text correct
