The article needs to distinguish its facts from its advertising claims

Long life - an advertising claim. Far too many compact fluorescents do not come NEAR living up to their lifetime claims - but who bothers to measure? You just buy new ones.

Better light - an advertising claim. Curiously, there are a number of studies online showing inferior light output, inferior spectral distribution, inferior spatial distribution, but the consumers raving about the improved quality. Placebo? New stuff syndrome?

Then there's factors like their non-performance in either cold or hot weather, sensitivity to being turned on/off too often (so much for conserving energy THAT way), mercury content..
