LED LIGHTBULB UPDATE: So, today I installed some of these Cree 100-watt equivalent LED bulbs in a couple of fixtures that need more oomph. They’re only rated for 60-watt incandescents, and I really want a little more light. One is in a bathroom (really, the water-closet part of the master) and the other is in an overhead fixture in the media room. In both cases, the spaces were brightened up nicely by the brigher LEDs compared to the 60-watt bulbs they replaced. Quality of light is . . . decent. Not as good as a standard incandescent, but better than a CFL. Now to see if they’ll live up to their projected 20+ year lifetime.
