I've posted my unlucky experience with CFL's and how most of mine burn up within a few months if not weeks. Personally I couldn't imagine being forced to keep a steady flow of them coming in as they burn out.
I admit my experience seems to be unique, but I can't think I'm the only one.
Since I can't keep buying those for the expense I admit (The shame) of buying incandescents. But the guilt of it all and the added operating cost has me looking at the new LED bulbs.
Here is one source:
Best Home Lighting .com
Home Depot etc also have them but seems less LED count. (Lower output)
They seem REALLY expensive for ones which output enough for a room but boast 30,000 life hours. Much simpler than CFL's (Only a bank of LED's and a resistor block) they should be about the last bulbs ever to buy. LED's don't reduce output like flourescents and are lower wattage. (But possibly lower output)
We were thinking of buying a 165 LED flood ($68) and two 96 LED general purpose ($66 ea) to try them out.
Have anybody experienced the light type and volume of these kinds of lights? They say they are white but I've never seen a white LED....just Red, Blue and a combo of the two which is yellow/amber.
Anyway we're curious about it.
