So I picked up 2 of the 30 watt Daylight floods. I have to say, I'm rather disappointed. On my 29 I was experimenting with 3 x 23w Spiral CFLs in the plain clip-on aluminum holders from Lowes.

The CFLs seem FAR brighter and more even. I don't have a real lux meter, but I tried the app on my phone. Even if it isn't accurate, it showed the CFLs as being a good 30% brighter.

Anyone else had that issue? Maybe they sent me the wrong lights??
