    LED's and fluorescant bulbs suck shit through ten bricks because neither of them can throw off the kind of warm light that incandescant bulbs did. I hate the pure white light of fluorescants.

    This will ruin the light bulb companies everywhere. If you make a light bulb that last forever, nobody is going to buy a new one.

    All three bulbs are meant to last more than 20 years, if used about three hours per day.
    So they will last about 6 years under normal usage.

    Sort of like how cheap flashlights don't exist anymore at all because of shake-recharge flashlights.

    I prefer the first one, because in reality it's more natural and thus doesn't screw with your eyes as much

    Then buy LED bulbs which replicate incandescents?



    We have 6 of these in our house. You can put it side-by-side with a incandescent and not be able to tell the difference in light.

    Yeah, I'd rather have nice atmospheric light that doesn't make my home look like it's mapped with fullbright.

    ehh, it's relaxing to have it warm.

    Super-bright only works in a bathroom/kitchen where you REALLY need to see everything.

    but that's just me.

    Apart from, as pointed out, turn my lights off, I also use a program called F.lux to warm the colours of my monitor at night. I sleep incredibly well.

    Being around those lights around the house if i went into the bathroom or something before sleeping would just wake me up, i can't stand them. I use flux too, i can hardly keep standard yellow lighting on around the house other than just dim lamps and such. Nevermind one that mimics straight up daylight.

    that's common sense IMHO, eyes can adjust far faster and it doesn't strain as much.

    unless, as I said before, it's in the bathroom or something, where you want to REALLY see things. I need to use my phone's flashlight to see the back of my teeth.

    The nice thing about LED bulbs is that they require cooling. LED's do NOT like high heat.

    This means that LED bulbs usually require metal housing - which means they are built like tanks. The electronics inside can still die though.

    LED bulbs come in the same variety as florescents, if you want warm get "warm" or 2700K bulbs. 2700K is the same as an incandescent.

    Since there are over 7 billion people on the planet I don't think they need to worry about getting buyers.

    We need new lights in our house, currently the bathroom has a dodgy, almost no luminescence, special ring shaped bulb. The bad thing is that it's useless during the day. The good part is your eyes don't explode when you need to piss in the early hours

    I prefer white lights though.
    This is because the human eyes have a limited bandwidth of frequencies they can see, this starts at red and ends with purple. Things like infra-red and ultra-violet are outside the spectrum of visual light because our eyes simply didn't evolve to be able to see it. Right in the middle of the visual spectrum (which as I said ranges from red to purple, just like the rainbow) is green and yellow.
    Because of this we register yellow and green much better than say red or blue or white for that matter.
