Seems great so far, time will tell on the 3 year warranty
I recently bought 5 Ultra High 95 CRI, 300K A19 5W LED Filament Bulbs to use in a 1934 Art Deco chandelier. The filaments will be hidden by the custard glass shades, but I wanted high CRI lamps, which make all the difference. The chandelier isn't installed yet, but I know from other Waveform purchases, they'll be great.
Bought this light bulbs because I wanted a warm tone and bring a calm and relax environmente to a coffee shop I will just about to open.
Work great! At night, it calms down people for some chit chat. Also, during the day, it helps people take photos en videos of the shop and products, resulting in a much better quality
These are the best dimmable A-type LEDs I've found. I prefer 3,000 Kelvin color temperature, and with the high CRI, the quality of light on these is fantastic. They look nice when they're off too, with the clear exterior and filament style. I've had good luck with dimmability as well, having them work well with plug in dimmers and wall dimmer switches (both specified for LEDs). The only downside is that they seem to start to flicker more the lower you dim them, although I don't notice any flicker when they're on all the way. Also, if flicker is your priority, Waveform has other lamps specifically designed to minimize that.
These bulbs have a green tinge to them that I found quite unpleasant. The green was quite visible in a side-by-side test with the CENTRIC HOME bulbs at the same color temperature.
I would love if Waveform made lower lumen and dimmable bulbs that were the same color as the centric bulbs, but these are not it.
I was able to return the bulbs in exchange for the Centric bulbs, so I'm quite happy overall, but can't recommend these bulbs.
These lights came very well packaged and working well with a Lutron maestro dimmer. It is highly dimmable and I've not experienced flickering. Please note that these are safe to use inside an enclosure but other waveform lights which might be brighter are not rated for enclosure usage. I do video and graphics design and although I do not have a formal way to test the CRI rating I have not noted altered skin tones under these lights.
As a photographer, I normally get light products that are daylight balanced, but I wanted to have warm lighting for reading and general illumination in my living space at night. Some lights are bright enough, but they lack energy to display certain colors. Over time this creates a poor way to see things, and can put one in a bad mood. These lights are worth the money, especially since they last a long time. I suggest that you consider them. I am very happy that I use them.
I've been disappointed by every other LED bulb I've tried, which tend to make a room feel flat, dull, and depressing. The Centric Home bulbs, though, actually feel like incandescent light. They're great—worth the cost!
I purchased the 3000K light bulbs to put in a new fixture. They were the perfect shade for me. I liked them so much that I took them out before I moved and replaced them with other bulbs so I could have the Waveform bulbs in my new house.
We recently finished a bathroom update and replaced our old "globe bulb" light fixture with two three-bulb light fixtures with small bell-shaped glass shades. I wanted to brighten things up a bit and go full LED, and six of these Ultra High 95 CRI A19 5W LED Filament Bulbs in 3000K turned out to be absolutely perfect. Before ordering I was a bit concerned that the filaments might be too visible and cause shadows on the wall, but the bulbs and glass shades provide a really nice smooth light. My next project is to update light fixtures in our finished basement and I will be ordering more of these bulbs!
