Can anyone name a few good LED lighting manufacturers that you've tried for your home or office with decent success?
I got an ad from newegg's mailing list that they have a special going on for
Rosewill's line of LED home lighting, and It sparked my interest in maybe trying it out.
So - I guess i'm just wondering if any of you have replaced your CF or Tungsten bulbs with LEDs, and if so, how do they compare colo-wise and output-wise?
What brand(s) did you try?
Thanks!!

I've been purchasing Cree 800 lumen LED bulbs at Home Depot. I'm happy with their color and light output.

Their 800 lumen bulbs are on the low end of energy usage. They use 9 or 9.5 watts (depending on color output) while I've seen some competitor's bulbs (also 800 lumen) that use 11 to 13 watts! Also, Cree is a well known company with a good reputation.

I agree with LR Kevin. Good stuff. Used some of their retro kits for 2x2 and 2x4s in the office. Good color and lumen output.

Thank's guys! I'll check them out for sure. I'm compiling a list and being sure to check each before making my final purchase! Thanks again :)

I would like to suggest a 60W Equivalent Daylight (5,000K) A19 Dimmable LED Light Bulb, it's looks awesome and cool :)

Cree's are great, the "Day Light" color is the bomb, but I've had some of the glass envelopes detach from the base. I've used Tri-Tech External LED drivers with LED 4 ft tube bulbs that have a five year warranty and also has a UL sticker certifying that the new retro fitted fixture meets the UL requirement.
