Those appear to cost 3x as much though as the other Cree bulbs.
I've never used an LED bulb inside my house and I currently have all CFL coils in my fixtures and am curious about how well LED's throw light comparatively speaking.
Are the Lumen ratings on these LED's pretty accurate across the board when comparing them against other bulb types?
For example... I have some 1300 Lumen 2700K CFL coil bulbs in track lighting in my bedroom. They are only on one end of the room but throw plenty of light to light up the whole long length of the octagonal shaped room. Cree makes either 60 or 75W equivalent bulbs, and their Lumen ratings are 800 and 1100 respectively. I'm just curious if switching from my current CFL's to the 75W LED's would have a real significant dropoff in brightness as a result of something related to the LED technology and how it throws light.
But those standard old bulbs are a Godsend in the wintertime(northeastern part of the US here) as they throw off some residual heat that cuts out heating bill if ever by the most miniscule of fractions.
Residual heat? More than 90% of the energy consumed by a tungsten filament light bulb is used to produce heat. A typical incandescent light bulb has about 3% efficiency. i.e. Only 3% of the energy consumed is used towards generating light.
So, it is mainly a heater. Light is just the side effect.
Typical electric heater has about 100% efficiency. i.e. all of the energy consumed is used towards generating heat.
3% is the difference between an electric heater and an incandescent light bulb.

From my own experiences, he uses and abuses the sites he is a member of. He cares about no one but himself. If there's a deal ANYWHERE, he is the person to buy 100x of whatever it is to resell for profit, and usually get the deal pulled or canceled.
He lives near me. A couple years ago, he bought five copies of a game on clearance at target closest to me. Bragged about it here then soon found out the trade value wasn't worth a 'flip'. When I called him on it for being a scumbag for buying out the stock, he PM'ed me and told me he would now purposely return them to a target far away from me so I can't get a copy for myself.
