LED users: advice from your experience
I realize a lot of people have used fluorescent tubes for shop lighting for a long time, but I never liked that. I've got two 60w incandescents in a household-type fixture over a workbench and then individual 60w directed-light lamps on the workbenches themselves. I find myself replacing a bulb every couple months (which case is said to be very different if you've got LED) - plus I know the setup I use now draws much more electricity than it needs to.
I'm interested in screw-base LEDs that would work in the current fixtures and be similar to the light output of 60w incandescents (plus, ideally, would have a pleasing coloration to the light).
I'd like to hear about your experience with household-type, screw-base LEDs - not what the manufacturers say.
Are your LED bulbs actually lasting a long time? If you can remember bulb brand names, that would be good to know (but don't be shy about posting if you can't remember that). Do you remember about how much you paid per bulb?
(If you're in Canada, where did you buy your bulbs?)
