My wife is an Artist and she has desired a more natural light in her studio for those darker days of fall and winter. We have tried several other bulbs and then installed 2 of these next to others that have similar claims of natural light. This bulb shines!! it is easy to see the difference from other bulbs rated 5000K. It appears that the CRI of 95 is the differentiator. We will be ordering several more to completely outfit her studio with only these bulbs. The price is high in comparison BUT the quality is worth it. Now the only thing left is "will they last 25,000 hours?!!". We hope there is no need to ask you to honor the 3 year warranty coverage!!
Bought these and a previous set of the same for our bathrooms. Bright, crisp light makes it easier to wake up in the morning, especially on a dreary winter day. Makes the paint color pop, too!
Lovely white light and nice clean colors! Flicked on the lights after switching from cheap bulbs and my plants coloring popped. Could be placebo but I swear their colors seem much more crisp.
Working great as a desk light for my matching station!
Great product and it was delivered really fast! I will keep ordering from you guys!
As the nation's largest printer, we print over 8000 publications. One smaller title had a color-complaint. Event thought our proofs vs. their cover, didn't match. So our Plant Manager and head of Color-Reproduction flew to NYC to discover they had NOTHING in controlled lighting to examine our product. Just junky office-fluorescents. Retail LED-replacements are a little better, deficient in cyan (needed for Afro-American skin) and red (skin tones, meat, makeup, wines). Without a $6000 color-booth or a $2700 table-top viewing station, we used a D50 lamp in a $2.99 Goodwill tabletop lamp, turned off the overheads, and showed... they matched. We DONATED the lamp (under $20) and bet we'll get no more $2000 trips for nothing. These lamps should be used in every rug-shop, gallery, paint store (perhaps the D65 lamp) and clothing aisle to avoid the mis-matches and returns caused by poor lighting.
I ordered these for my painting studio because my natural lighting is so sad. These bulbs are the next best thing to natural sunlight. They are powerful, white lights with a great temperature balance. All of my colors look true in this light. I will be buying them for the rest of my spaces.
