Very high quality and long lasting lights
These bulbs are great. High CRI especially high R9. Worked as well as expected.
narrow beam is a spotlight.
I wish this had a 140º beam
It was hit and miss with lighting in my loft/art studio. We have a lot of dark cloudy days here in Oregon and when it is sunny my only windows are on mainly on the east. We purchased 4 NorthLux™ 95 CRI BR30 LED Bulbs for Artwork & Studio bulbs to put in my track lights a few weeks ago and I LOVE THEM. They provide the perfect lighting for work anytime day or night. I am so happy I can paint when inspiration hits me, not when the sun is ok lighting.
We plan to get more lights for the rest of the house in the future. They cost a bit more but by far they are worth every cent.
I tried to post a before lighting and after, then close up of true-color with my painting. Not sure how well this will show, but I can't tell everyone how much I appreciate this lighting! Thanks, Waveform!
Plenty of people talk about color and I think it's great. But, I want to use this review to cover their customer service and warranty, which is FANTASTIC. I have had 66% of an order, a previous manufactured batch, fail. And they now knew about the defect and had already corrected the problem in their design/manufacturing. Their warranty service has been A+ and that is something that is a breath of fresh air.
They stand by their products and that's how you gain a customer for life.
I work with color analysis and my studio don’t have any natural light coming in. This light was a life saver.
I purchased these lights for my home office where I have setup a semi-professional broadcast studio. The build quality is truly AMAZING and I loved the flicker-free quality. I have swapped these 5000K bulbs out for Waveform's 2700K version which matches my daylight conditions better. Nonetheless, I can recommend these and the folks behind them without reservation!
An artist friend installed these 5000K lights in his small studio just before the gloomy Seattle season arrived. The light is like a studio he had years ago. Ut had a huge north facing picture window. He's very happy.
Will be buying more for other rooms in our house!
Used the 95 CRI BR30 LED Bulb for Artwork & Studio in 6500K to replace six recessed can lights in a 750 sf studio space. Very white light, easily notice the blue hues on paintings. I have some of the regular bulbs in 6500K for photographing art and may reserve half of these BR30 bulbs for photos. Going to try adding a few 5000K to the mix to see if I can dampen the blue a bit, mimic a wider range of lighting situations. Happy though—makes the space useable, even on the darkest nights, plenty of light—just not yet perfect.
