The article reports on the light emitting diodes (LEDs) presented at the Lightfair trade show in the U.S. The white LEDs with high lumen/watt output claim better performance and ratings over the T8 fluorescent light sources powered by electronic ballasts. However, a certain vendor does not reveal the price of the devices unless advance payment is given.
