I found your statistic that LED lights last five times as long as compact fluorescents interesting, but can't help but wonder if this just another exaggerated claim by a newer technology. After all, CFL manufacturers claim five to seven years for their products, which would mean 25 to 35 years for an LED when, in fact, I have had several of my CFL's last a year or less.

While they may in fact reduce energy consumption, they have yet to live up to their claims of longevity. What evidence exists for LED claims of 25 to 35 years usage?
