I moved into a home 2 years ago that was fully converted to CFL bulbs. I’m cnusinooutly replacing them and they include a mix of brands and models. From what I’ve read, there seems to be no question in the market that the CFL does not live up to advertised claims.I believe the reality of it is that perhaps the bulb itself could last for the advertised period, but the power supply embedded in each unit does not. These power supplies include a small circuit board that contains a number of extremely low end components that are known in the electronics industry to be used for short life time products such as toys. The power supplies are needed to convert the power from the 120V connection to a voltage that is appropriate for CFL bulbs and I honestly believe the power supply is the bulk of the cost in manufacturing a CFL bulb. If the issue is with the power supply and not the bulb itself, I suspect the tradeoff to improving the issue is that if a manufacturer actually used components that could last the life time of the bulb, the cost would greatly multiply.
