If you haven't been paying attention, LED's for the home are dropping in price like crazy.
I first put up a post on the best LED A19 bulb for 60-W and 40-W replacements with pricing pulled from Amazon.
You can see a comparison I put together at the bottom of this post. When you factor in price, efficiency, and warranty, no other manufacturer comes close to what Cree is currently offering.
Are LEDs cheaper than CFLs? Nope, not even close, but they're getting closer.
Plus, they don't contain mercury (no need for special recycling), their lifespan isn't shortened by frequent on/off (like my CFLs in my kitchen are with my occupancy sensor), and they will last much longer than CFLs.
I have 4 LED bulbs in my home, and I still use mainly CFLs, but my thinking has changed recently and I'm taking a much closer look at LED bulbs. How about you?
