And what happens when the store no longer replaces the bulb, or even carries the same model? If you read the warranties, most require you to ship the bulb back to the manufacturer for replacement. Are you really going to do that for a bulb that quits working a year or two or three from now?

I've had many CREE LED bulbs go bad, and Home Depot has been great about replacing them with no fuss, no muss. But as time goes on, I am sort of waiting for the response "we don't replace those any more; you have to send in the old bulb to CREE". At that point, I'll be upset, but I doubt I'll box up a bulb and pay postage to send it back.
