White LED lies: It's great, but Nobel physics prize-winning great?


Let's put it this way

When LED bulbs became available for US $8.00, I snapped a few up to test them out.

I've since bought a bag of them an replace my aging incandescent bulbs with them, as well as my CFL bulbs.

While the energy savings seems a pittance of 10 watts vs 18 watts, the light is whiter, appears brighter and is a *lot* cooler running than the CFL bulbs. That heat adds up in my house, as I need more light now than I did in my younger days.

-There is one thing that sucks more than getting older. Not living long enough to be getting older.
