Energy saving bulbs
Is this a scam? I just bought 3 - 23 watt bulbs, supposedly the equivalent of a 100 watt bulb but they should last 5 years and save me $183. This all sounds good but is it true? I also notice the bulbs appear to be at least 25% dimmer than their less efficient counter parts...so If I were replacing a 75watt buld I almost need its 100W efficient counterpart(23W)...so is there really a savings? Are these things safe?
