Great clean illumination for the kitchen island light fixtures which bring out more of the kitchen center piece beautiful stone texture. Lots of illumination for a 40 watt equivalent bulb.
I measured a higher CRI (97) with an I1Pro 3 and BabelColor CT&A than the website promised (95). Maybe I just got a lucky batch but I'm certainly not complaining.
The only slight down-side is that the clear envelope and imitation tungsten filament design seems to require some kind of efficient reflector in order to get the advertised brightness on a working surface five feet below the bulb. I get the feeling a translucent envelope, if it was available, would be brighter for the same rated lumens.
Great quality light output. Phenomenal packaging, great dimming and excellent reliability.
Bought these bulbs after hearing about their flicker free cousins on a podcast, seem to give off a good neutral white color - and now that 2700K flicker free bulbs are available...I’ll probably give those a shot sometime in the future.
I found the 3000k bulb to be an excellent replacement bulb for multiple uses that call for long lasting, clean light; kitchen, fan replacement bulbs and hall ways. This company has thorough and flexible service that stand by their products.
We bought these after I made the mistake of brining some LED bulbs home from a big box store. They flickered. They had to go! I ordered these in the 2700K color, and I was honestly on the fence then between that and 3000K, since it would be in a kitchen and in glass fixtures. After putting them in, I really wish I had ordered the 3000K color for my kitchen. No worries- I am sure I can repurpose these bulbs elsewhere in the house. Are they pricey? Yes. Are they worth it? I would say yes so far- no flickering, and if they manage to last a long time (I have had many LED's die after only 6 mo- to a year) they will pay for themselves. I'm going to hold off on making any paint color decisions until the color bulbs I want are in stock, since lighting really changes the way paint looks in a room.
We have pictures lining our hallway and placing these bulbs into the lights returned the colors to how I remembered them back in the days of filament bulbs.
As an architect and artist the color quality of LED light bulbs is important to me. These are the best I've found.
As a professional lighting designer I've been looking for a high quality LED replacement for standard tungsten lamps. I purchased the 5w clear A19 lamp. My first reaction is that the color is very very good. I installed this lamp in my bathroom to replace an older LED that was too bright and washed out color. There is hardly any noticeable flicker in this lamp and its great for skin tones. I'm going to order a few more as well as the brighter A19 options for my home. For a 40w equivalent, I would certainly recommend.
I replaced all the lights in my kitchen with the 3000k lights. When I first ordered them I was concerned they might be too warm, but the light is a bright white without being harsh or glaring. The first time I turned them on it was such a difference as everything was so much more discernible and vibrant. It makes it so easy to see what I'm doing when cutting up food, and ensuring a thorough clean up afterward.
