There are still places for CFLs.

I replaced the overhead "can" CFL lights with LEDs in our bedroom. Same lumens as the prior CFLs. The early Monday morning after I put them in, I turned on the lights while my wife was still in bed - kinda dozing. It is our way of saying time to get up and to work . . .

She screamed - TURN THEM OFF!!

Recall that the "old" CFL's warm up over a minute or so, so the first output is WAY diminished. The LED's "instant on, 100% output" feature was quite apparent.

The CFL's went back in . . . .
