LED, reg bulb, fluorescence, etc

Hey, guys.

What's the diff between those energy-saving bulbs we get from Costco (those whirling ones) versus fluorescent bulbs versus LED?

I'm reading that LED is a lot more efficient. Is that true?

yes, but it's not the same light. personally i really hate led lights for everyday lighting use.

energy saving bulbs suck too in places where you want instant light. they have this warm up time where it's dull and then takes time to get brighter.

this isn't china.. you don't need to save the energy, get some good old standard bulbs. :)

Yah . . . I do away with all that standard light bulbs, energy saving bulbs, etc. I stick to my colored Halloween light bulbs, and black lights. It not only save me time that I don't have to change them out for Halloween, but like =T said, we don't live in China. So I don't mind the black lights sucks up 90% of the light output in its visible spectrum filter. And I just love the glow from white t-shirts. Plus. The red, green, and blue light bulbs really makes my home look more colorful. Only problem is my eyes hurt like hell after a few hours. And my photos never end up with the right colors after editing them. But what the hell, you gain some and you lose some, right?
