LOL I'm in the same boat as Owen. I've got too much stuff to give up collecting now. If I gave up my lighting hobby I wouldn't have very much of a life at all other than work lol.
Thought this old topic could do with reviving. We too are disheartened and disappointed in the way the world is going with regard to LED's, particularly for street lighting. We still have a certain amount of choice when it comes to what we use at home, even if we do have to resort to places like eBay to get lamps, but outside that door we have to accept whatever is forced upon us  Undecided

Both of us here have the lighting bug big time, so no way would we (or could we) ever give up  Grin Cool

I'm confused as to how you quoted Mike yet I cannot find my comment on this thread nor his.... I don't recall deleting my responses ever...  Huh?

Something seems glitched.

Literally just less than 3 hours ago at work, as I was working I noticed a fixture turned on at the very front of the factory, in an
area used as storage, that hasn't been infected with LED tubes. That fixtures stays off typically, so the installers didn't touch it.
That light, next to the LED ones, was noticeably warmer (of course) and BRIGHTER. A lot of light was gone when that thing was switched off.
... but that being said, 100% of the 4, 6, and 8 lamp T8 fluorescent high bays, now have LED tubes in them.
That, and they're replacing all the old machines in that factory. The old machines still have over head fluorescent fixtures. The new
machines have fluorescent fixtures with the LED tubes in them, so it's only a matter of time. Complete bull.

I'm exactly the same.!!  Cheesy
