The great LED lightbulb rip-off: One in four expensive 'long-life' bulbs doesn't last anything like as long as the makers claim
Consumer group Which? tested 46 types of light bulb for endurance
More than a quarter did not meet claims of a 15,000-hour life
Disappointing result comes despite claims of them lasting 25,000 hours

Some even fell below the legal minimum of 6,000 hours

Nothing made in China lasts or works well including my HP Elitebook 8560w Workstation for $2000.00, that has nothing but trouble for the last 2 1/2 years. Fix, fix, fix. Next one is a Lenovo workstation.

We did it to ourselves. Buy cheap, get China and put ourselves out of work.

The Walmartian brain degeneration syndrome has spread nationwide and has infected most of our population. Symptoms are a D.G.A.S. attitude where something is made, by who, and out of what. As the illness progresses, there is an acceptance of child and slave labor in countries where there is nothing as EPA or OSAH. It progresses then to the accepted reality of lead paints and toxic chemicals in children's toys. There is no cure except a daily dose of pointing to the person you see in your mirror and asking him why he let it get this way.
