2
Ecosmart 14W CFL90014$1.0064.2910,000803.9" long x 3.2"Acceptable light quality, decent (but often exaggerated) bulb life.Much cheaper than LEDs currently, with comparable efficiency and light quality to most.Contains mercury. Unsuitable in dimmers or cold. Early failure with high humidity, vibration, frequent on/off cycling.
3
Philips L-Prize Winning LED (discontinued)94010Was $30-5594.0030,000924.1" long x 2.4"Instant on, with no warm-up time, flicker or hum. Truly omnidirectional LEDs with warm color. Dims to 10% brightness. Extremely durable and with incredibly long life.Highest CRI of any LED/CFL. Highest Lm/W of any bulb, so best for 24/7 applications for quick ROI.Very high bulb cost. Can't get utility rebates online or in all states. Limited initial availability. Not for enclosed fixtures.
4
Old Philips AmbientLED (discontinued)80012.5Was $15-2564.0025,000804.3" long x 2.3"Inexpensive LED from a reputable company, pretty good CRI of 80.Lasts so long, more efficient and cheaper LEDs will arrive long before it's dead. Can develop an audible buzz.
5
Philips AmbientLED (EnduraLED)83011$14.9775.4525,000814.2" long x 2.4"Same as above, but with better dimming and more conventional looks.Also comes in 5000K (daylight). No yellow phosphor or unsightly heatsink. Dims down to 2%.Perhaps not as omnidirectional as those with visible remote phosphors.
6
Cree LED8009.5$9.9784.2125,000804.7" long x 2.4"10yr warranty. Efficient and cheap. Also in daylight.Sticky silicone coating may collect dust/be hard to clean.
7
Philips EcoVantage 43W Halogen75043$1.5017.443,0001004.0" long x 2.4"Low initial bulb cost. Warm, familiar color with great color reproduction. Dimmable.Low bulb cost, yet replicates all aspects of regular incandescents using only 3/4 of the electricity.Still vastly less efficient than CFLs or LEDs.
8
Regular Edison Incandescent (no longer manufactured from Jan. 2014)78060$1.0013.001,0001004.4" long x 2.4"Cheapest (if you don't turn it on). Good for very infrequently used closets or attics.Short life, VERY polluting and VERY expensive to run. Increases A/C burden with high heat output.
