I pay 0.16/kWh (or 6.25 kWh per 1) which ever way you look at the price of electricity.
If lamps are bought at poundland it would take 6,250 hours to pay 1 back at a 1 watt power saving.
A 6 watt poundland LED lamp replaces a 11watt CFL so you have got the pound back five times quicker, after 1,250 hrs of use.

Does anyone disagree with that?

I have some 300W floodlight incandescent bulbs, they are about 4" diameter with an inch and a half edison screw (approximate guess at the measurement) now when I stand in front of the spotlight I can feel the heat radiating off those beasts.

And I thought my twin 150watt watt security lamps( triggered by movement) were power guzzlers...............
