Anyone know if the LED lights are any good yet? I'm tired of CFLs burning out in less than a year for the cost and am switching back to incandescents for now. Replacing these things yearly can't be resulting in a net improvement for the environment.

Reduce stress to prolong life

I agree with earlier comments that there's something wrong if your CFL bulbs are lasting less than 3 or 4 years. One year per bulb is ridiculously short.

Fluorescent bulbs can have their lifespan significantly reduced by turning them on and off frequently. If you'll be moving around the house a fair bit, only staying in a room for a few minutes or leaving then coming back a few minutes later, leaving the lights on in those rooms will prolong their lifespan.
