While the Luxeon Rebel is still more expensive than CFLs and incandescent bulbs, the amount of light per square millimeter is dramatically higher as is the efficiency of the LED. While it probably won't start showing up in bulbs on store shelves for another year, chances are this technology is going to take lighting to an entirely new level while bursting the CFL bubble but good. The light these LEDs produce can be warm, cool, neutral or colored.
Finally, unlike CFLs these LEDs contain no mercury and, in fact, comply with Europe's Reduction of Hazardous Substances laws.
