L.E.D. LIGHTING: I’ve had an LED spotlight in my basement hallway for over a year now, sent by reader Shane Sullivan. It’s a Lighting Science SOL R30, it uses 13 watts, and it’s supposed to be the equivalent of a 50 watt halogen light. It seems equivalent in brightness, though a tad whiter, than the 65-watt incandescent indoor spots on either side of it. The light looks good, and it’s outlasted more than one CFL bulb that was supposed to last 8 years. I don’t know what it costs, but I suspect it’s kinda pricey, but I can see replacing other bulbs with one of these.
