Want to know why everyone is scared about that? Look at EPA's site. Whereas, all you have to with incandescent is carefully pick the piece of glass up, and throw it away.

@routharoni I'm an electrical engineer. WHY do I even want to switch to CFLs? So I can save a measly 1-2 pennies each month? That seems pointless . Besides I'll burn up several dollars (and emits lots of CO2) having to drive the CFLs to the landfill after they die. That's doesn't seem very "green" to me .

I'm going to run incandescents for as long as I can because they are less hazardous when they break, easier to dispose of and IMO produce a better quality of light. Also IMO CFL dont last as long as they say and of course they are more money to buy. So in the end, its not that much cheaper in my view - plus nobody runs their lights 24-7 while they are at home anyway. Businesses, sure maybe but for home, I'll run what I like :)

' 2 bulbs are still good,,, one is bad = twister bulb cannot use a dimmer control,,, one is best = normal bulb can use a dimmer control up to 600 watts

@DigitalWatcher1 We have been slowly replacing our bulbs in the house with these. EXTREMELY disappointing results..though some have been better than others.Some take ages to warm up and produce real light, others are instant. And I have a BOX full of dead ones that lasted maybe monthes instead of years...I have that box because they contain lovely stuff like mercury and other toxic sustances and cannot just be thrown away. They'll need to be collected on our once-a-year hazardous materials day.

CFLs work great, but only when they are used in proper applications. This includes; 1. No dimmers (some CFLs can work with dimmers, but the majority can't) 2. No fully enclosed fixtures. The heat buildup causes early failure. 3. No areas that see many cycles with short run times (eg closets, bathrooms and so on) What I'm saying is; CFLs are great, but they have limitations. That's why the proposals to ban incandescents are simply wrong. Incandescents are still superior for some applications.

The CFL in this video looks and sounds gay anyway, that tells you something, no offence to any gays, but I noticed that.
