It might be the power surges or something, but CFLs just don't seem to last in this house.
I've lost a few LEDs too, but they were replaced by the store (Lowes).

My CFLs aren't the fancy low power models.. I only got the CFLs they had in stock since about 2011ish..

I was under the impression that CFLs generally used about twice as much power as LEDs..

I was pleased with the light output too. Those 40W LEDs are brighter than many 60W CFLs..

A while back, those Utilitech 60w were about $30.. That's why I went for the Phillips $15 60w.
