LED Lumens Per Watt

I am now officially impressed. Several years ago, I looked into LEDs as competition for CFLs. They were not competitive at all. The lumens per watt was always less. Back then, the max I could find was 71 lumens per watt LED for a huge dollar figure vs a 75 lumen CFL for $5.

This is now changing. Cree announced that they have broken the 200 lumen per watt barrier and came out with an astounding 231. This even beats a low pressure sodium lamp that can put out 100-200 depending upon which on you get.

Now, I doubt that these are readily available and the price will probably be astounding, but its out there folks.
