I have seasonal affective disorder and am very sensitive to light. I felt better with just one 6500K BR30 bulb. It was dramatic. Since I had room for six bulbs in the six ceiling fixtures that are in the kitchen where I spend much of my time due to it being where my laptop is, I decided to purchase six 3000K BR30 bulbs for those fixtures. The 3000K color temperature is said
to be ideal for a kitchen, while the 6500K is said to be harsher. I returned the one 6500K bulb, but soon realized I liked the uplifting effect of the 6500K color temperature. So, I am going to buy six 6500K BR30 bulbs when they are back in stock and place them in track lighting fixtures, while keeping the six 3000K bulbs in the six ceiling fixtures. Then I will have lighting for all seasons and for all types of weather and can turn the 6500K bulbs on and off as if they are SAD therapy lights. I am happy with the 3000K bulbs and with their placement. And, yes, I have had SAD therapy lights before. Three different ones.
3000K bulbs have a great color profile. I've specifically noticed greens and purples look much better compared to my existing 2700K LED lights. I am also a fan of the diffuser: This bulb really lights up the whole room much more evenly compared to the the existing BR30 bulb I replaced. Overall very satisfied.
Exactly what I was hoping for. Most lighting options tend to cause a fair amount of eye strain, but for me these bulbs seem to have mitigated that. The color they add is a plus as well.
I really love the new bulbs. What a major improvement to my house and the ability to be able to see the wood grains in my dark floors. I will definitely purchase them again. Thanks again.
Tried very many brands - this one surely stands out! I used these for recessed lighting in my house and can clearly see the difference in how these light up the room as compared to other big brands.
I use BR30 LED bulbs from several of the "big name" brands in the 2700-3000K temperature range for my home. None of them can match the beautiful tint and color rendering of the Waveform BR30. There is a clear, noticeable difference that makes the Waveform product well worth the investment!
Love the color of the 3000k bulbs. They are nice and bright and give new life to our kitchen and living room.
The best lamps that I have found so far to replace all of our BR30. The 3000 kelvin was voted the best temperature for our kitchen by the family. We are also looking at Northlux 5000 for the art studio, and I would use LED tubes for our office light tables, if they were dimmable.
We have six of these in can in our kitchen. He has six halogen bulbs before because we like the warms colors but were dreading the high consumption of electricity. These are almost a perfect replacement for halogen. We wish they were just a tad bit warmer but we are still quite happy with them. Almost our whole house now uses waveform bulbs!
I replaced the builder installed 2700k with the 3000k LED and what a difference! Love these!
