Home Depot Complaint - Defective Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
About six months ago I went "green" and purchased 12 N:VISION compact fluorescent globe shaped bulbs from Home Depot. The packaging says the bulbs have a 7 year warranty and are expected to last 8,000 hours. The bulbs starting going out after 4 months of about 3 hours use per day. So far 8 of the 12 bulbs purchased have gone bad. I went to Home Depot to exchange the defective bulbs. The Manager was called and said since it was past 90 days they could not refund or exchange the bulbs. If Home Depot is going to sell a product with a 7 year warranty they should make sure it is a decent product. Out of my $60 purchase I am out $40 already.
N:VISIUON bulbs are made in China and I am sure Home Depot is making a better profit margin by buying overseas. Walmart sells Phillips brand fluorescent bulbs so I'll buy my replacements there.
