Re: Fluorescents
As of today fixture efficiency at 100 lumens/watt for troffers is pretty common and L80 at 60k hours also fairly available. Only specular T5 under the best conditions gets close. Non specular units or specular with glare control are not close. End of 2014 will see large number of new installs LED with end of 2015 likely >50%. That is not guessing that is feedback from the majors ...otherwise known as customers in many cases. Much of the information in the 3 parts was dated and some accuracy questionable. Maybe not a popular viewpoint but I am not posting go get my name out there but for education and accuracy.

"over a quarter felt that LEDs already have the edge"

I want to see proof of that superiority by those that voted that way.

Mere cheerleading on a site that is a LED tubefest doesn't 'make it so'.

Fluorescents
I think on the whole the assessment of the state of LEDs with fluorescents is a bit pessimistic. Our poll a couple of months back overwhelmingly went for LEDs' clear superiority by 2017 at the latest; over a quarter felt that LEDs already have the edge.

At first glance an impressive technical accomplishment, this bulb still falls short as a three-way incandescent replacement.
Cree's 75W-equivalent bulb seems to diverge from its Lighting Facts.
