I use the PC lamps as long as I can till they fry. Good to drop them off at
the landfill hazardous waste depot along with batteries etc(it's free to do
so for items like this). PC's are better than NO FL's on this issue. As
well as the $$$ wallet if you is them longer and are not lulled into
believing they should be replaced every 1-2 years.
