I have a few LED's, one outside for a security light, I never turn off. ( 3w = $2.50 a year. )
and a few of them for night lights for my kids.....
they still are very expensive. even on clearance.

I am hoping that they come down in price. A good LED that gives the kind of "warm" color temp is still pretty expensive. But I do believe that they will be pretty affordable within two years.

CFL are a waste of money IMHO. They tend to fail over time and not last the 7 years they claim...and when they do, they will lose their brightness. LED's are too $$ for me...so I still do incadescent.

All LEDs require gallium. China has better than 95% of the world's known deposits of rare earth metals, and in 2010 started putting severe restrictions on their export. A lot of modern electronics would be impossible without these elements. What happens to the price and availability of LEDs is pretty much up to China.
