30,000 hours? Wow, that's a decent life actually! While the PAR CFLs do have their use I guess, track lighting is not one of them!

I put one in a 70s floor lamp with fabric lampshade that my parents use. The thing got 2 lamp sockets pointing down (like / \\\\), conveniently the thing can be turned so the beam from a reflector lamp (in one of them) goes exactly where they hold their reading material

Originally the thing was for 2x60W Incandescents. Tried CFLs, but a while after that i noticed some damage to the fabric from the inner side of the shade - Apparently from the UV. Went back to Incandescents. Tried reflector Incandescent - I think the results were excellent, but apparently parents got spoiled by the way brighter CFL.. So they didnt accept the Incandescent comeback. i figured i'd use one of those floodlight CFLs - The Plastic outer bulb would (i guess) block most of the UV

Additional advantage is that the one flood lamp reflects the light where it is needed, (the other socket is fitted with an EOL Incandescent just to protect from poking a finger into it, as the switch is near there too), while it does not light up the whole room as much, so does not interfere with watching TV

Thats a lot ! The one i use (Eurolux) appears as if it switches on to full brightness or close. The enclosed cover sure helps, though it shortens the lamp life as well
