This is a great move. It involves solvable materials problems and huge market potential. Solid state lighting also avoids CFL's dirty little mercury problem, which can only be swept under the rug for so long.

Eventually, LED light price will come down significantly. The main area of concern will be CCT and CRI for LED lights. If they can match that of conventional lamp, it will be winner.

LED lighting has gone a push. What's the most challenging area of it other than cost reduction? Would you, as a consumer, switch to LED lighting from CFL if LED lasts 5 times more than CFL while costs 5 times more? In another words, the reduced electric bill is what you will gain.
