Well, I had never hear of LED light bulbs until I checked the forum a couple weeks ago.
I first replaced a couple dimming bulbs in the family room with LEDs and although they don't put out as much light I liked the effect better. Then I went on to replace the 10 CFL bulbs in the recessed lighting in our kitchen with these, IDEAL LED (CREE) 12 Watt Warm White 3000K PAR30 Flood Light Bulb 90 deg - Replace 100 watt.
I really like the color of the lights compared to the CFLs and the fact that the lights are bright immediately rather than the warm up of the CFLs. For the price they better last the 20 years as advertised.
But I'm really happy with the results in the kitchen, and once again I browse this forum and it costs me money
