If that CFL was still warming up, this might not be the best comparison. The reason why I say this is because, in
the lower portion of this photo you can see a reflection of both lights. In that reflection, the fluorescent
lamp kinda looks like it's still warming up. It *looks* this way, so of course, I don't know if it actually is.

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

i recently put ecosmart R-30 LEDs in my dining room and I like them, there as bright as the 65w incandescent floods I had originally. A few years ago I tried on of the Phillips marathon CFL floods and I HATED IT! on start up it's real dim and red and takes close to a minute to "warm up" plus it had no "beam pattern" to it it threw light every where like a standard bulb It currently resides in the "spare bulb box"

Collector,Hoarder,Pack-rat! Clear mercury Rules!!

The CFL was at full brightness. And I didn't do this just to like LED, I actually hate LED in all forms of lighting.

Looks like more glare from the LED.
How many watts are they?

My very first word was LIGHT!
