Just as another data point ...
I have several compact flourescents in the home and a few standard
non-compact types. By far the noisiest of them is NOT a CFL. I am not much
a weak signal listener, but the CFLs are pretty quiet, whereas this non-CFL
roars over the HF spectrum.
I also get pretty good life out of my CFLs. At this point I think I've had
two start to flicker, in well over 10 years of use.
Maybe I'm just getting the right brand(s)?
Is there anything NOT made in China?
