The color spectrum of LED bulbs is also superior. While incandescents O’Neal Energy Slasher Review do a good job or providing a reasonable emulation of natural sunlight, LEDs are far better. Incandescents are somewhat yellow, LEDs are white and much closer to the color temperature of natural daylight. And, unlike fluorescent bulbs, LEDs contain no mercury, which is hazardous if the bulb breaks.
Still LEDs have some drawbacks, apart from the higher cost. They don't currently put out as much light per bulb as a single incandescent so it may require more than one for particular lighting applications. They light a little less than CFL bulbs.
Since LEDs are more directional, they'll do better in reading lamps, recessed ceiling lamps and other such applications than as general ambient light. But where a long-lasting and/or always-on bulb is needed they can be very cost-effective.
