Re: LED Lighting: RGB vs UV/Blue + White/Yellow Phosphor

@Steve Jones

who says people believe LED's (or whatever) produce a blackbody spectrum, I'm sure they a) don't know what a blackbody spectrum is; b) don't care?

I remember switching to energy saving bulbs some years ago and the feel of my rooms being different from filament bulbs, somehow 'colder', but now I've got used to it and happy in the (presumed) energy saving costs, although I've not tried to isolate this from fluctuating electricity prices; I'm not sure many people check their actual consumption, only how much their bill is (which is the point of the article and the prize award).
