    What is the best lighting technology on the market today?

    If we balance cost and illumination, what is the least expensive and most pleasing lighting technology for use in the home.

    Probably CFLs.  They've been slagged as 'unpleasing,' but I don't find them to be unpleasing at all.

    I like LEDs, but they are still pretty darn expensive, unfortunately.  They work great, though.

    Yes, CFLs but I try to get 'warmer' (ie more yellow than blue) color temperatures- around 3500K. That way the lighting is cheap, cool (they don't generate a lot of heat like the old halogens) but visually pleasant.
