    I'm not sure what the seller is referring to. LEDs use ~80% less energy than comparable incandescent. Fluorescent is a close 2nd at ~75%. Halogen is a distant 3rd at ~20%. Incandescent is generally not available any more.

    Some fixtures have fixed LEDs that can not be changed. If the LED dies, you have to replace the whole fixture.

    They really are the same thing. LED light bulbs are energy saving light bulbs. The seller might have been referring to a compact florescent light bulb but you should avoid florescent bulbs if at all possible. Even though they are energy efficient, they contain mercury vapor and are hard to safely dispose of. LED's are just as energy efficient if not more so and they are much easier to recycle and don't contain mercury vapor.

    I am not sure if the seller was familiar with the LED or not, but it is obvious that the LED can save more energy than traditional bulbs. As per my own experience, the electricity cost was saved about 10%-20% after replacing all traditional bulbs three years ago for my flat.
