LED lighting is coming on fast and strong. Prices will go down (they've got to!) and the color will continue to improve, but I think what's out there right now is amazing. Raleigh's own Cree is a big player in the game. Watch this video, from the Philips website. It's a great way to learn about an LED lightbulb. It's a bit technical, but not bad, and at the end you get to build a bulb to see if you were paying attention. I loved it!
