LEDs are great for saving power. You need to look into the "warmth" of the light. I personally find LEDs more comfortable than normal energy saving bulbs. Technically they should last a long time. I have seen a couple of early cheap ones burn out. 

 

Also. LEDs give some new options. We have a bathroom light that is technically a tile in the ceiling giving light. Because LEDs are not producing heat as much, and they don't need 120/240v they can be put in places old school low energy bulbs cannot. 

 

Check out Philips Hue http://www.meethue.com/ It will cost you a decent sum, totally not worth it from the energy perspective (or at least any saving they can give you will take decades to make back) but this is the future of lighting. 

 

 

All is underlined because someone has pressed the underline text button

Now, someone tell me why all I write is in ITALICS

buy the brands that cost more with warranties from a reputable merchant, in china many led brands but some dont last 3 years, the bulbs should last 10 years for the expensive price, but the power bill does drop substantially if you run lights all the time.

some say lifetime warranty but im skeptical that they would probably prorate and not give a refund or just exchange bulbs.

My electricity jumped last year and this year 30%. I used the small florecent bulb, the light was awful, my light bill was more. Florecent tube lights----get natural spectrum----- burn cheaper if you have them on all time, office buildings etc, but if you turn them on and off they actually use more powering up the ballast.

 I bought some LED light bulbs from China, some didn't work, Ebay they sent replacements, but I hate the light, not very bright like the small florecents, they rate them 60w, I'd say 25w and the colour isn't nice. I use them in laundry room,closets and outside, but those lights aren't on very often.

 You hit the ''U'' in the panel to underline, try more buttons

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
