    I recently had to replace a couple lightbulbs in a ceiling fan unit in our house. I thought about buying a couple of Compact Fluorescent bulbs, but it seems those are hard to find now in favor of the LED bulbs. I've heard the LED bulbs are more energy-efficient, so I can see why compact fluorescent bulbs might be being phased out. The LED bulbs I bought are white/daylight bulbs, and they seem a little brighter than the old bulbs that were in the unit, but I like the white lite. It seems like a more pure light, with the older bulbs being more yellow. The LED bulbs say they're supposed to last 10 years, which is another bonus. I doubt we'll even be in this house for 10 more years, as we've been looking to get into a better house for us.

    Not to mention that with LED you don't have the constant high pitch buzzing that you do with the fluorescent.

    I've never noticed high pitched buzzing with fluorescent bulbs at home, especially the compact fluorescent bulbs that fit in a regular light socket.. There are some rooms in my house that use a tube fluorescent bulb (the kitchen and one of the closets), but even there I don't notice a high pitch buzzing noise.

    My hearing my just be a bit more sensative. I used to not be able to walk into a Sears because there was always this high frequence buzzing that would hurt my ears.

    Just like tinnitus, except I can't leave the Sears. :|

    I notice it, when the TV is not on and/or the fridge is not running. They drown out a lot.

    I hadn't shopped in a Sears in years, but do miss the auto stores - great service and prices on tires and batteries.

    Same here. Had many an oil change done there, and several sets of
    tires and batteries over the years. Once long ago I even bought
    one of those X-Cargo "bubbles" that attached to the top of the car
    for carrying extra stuff on a family vacation... :-)

    +1. The KMarts around here, even before they were owned by Sears, were similar (if they had auto stores).

    that's one strength sears had. they really should have focused on their automotive.

    Their slogan was "Satisfaction Guaranteed, or Your Money Back".
    Admittedly, their catalog "The Wish Book" was a competitor to the one
    put out by Spiegel. Now, all of that is gone.
