The light bulb works great, just what I expected, no complaints about it. The company's shipping methods need improvement. I've never seen anyone ship a light bulb simply by putting it inside a padded envelope. The box had collapsed and opened on both ends, and the plastic lid on the light bulb had popped off. Luckily it didn't break, but it was very unpleasant to get the product in such a poor condition.
I’ve been struggling with light in my studio for years. My instructor did a tutorial on lighting and Waveform had exactly what she described! This light has been fantastic and has made a huge difference in my studio! Highly recommend!
The NorthLux™ 95 CRI 6500K BR30 LED Bulb is an absolutely FANTASTIC piece of kit!
The color temperature is what you might expect to see from natural light streaming in from a north-facing window on a sunny afternoon -- no longer do artists need to put away their canvas & pigments when the sunset is looming near; just screw in one or more of these babies, direct (aim) them toward your canvas, and paint like it's afternoon!
One of the best things about this LED bulb is that it's dimmable on a standard DIAC dimmer -- this is the type of dimmer (usually seen with either a knob that you spin or a slider that moves vertically) most frequently found in homes, offices, art studios, and the like.
Even when set to minimum intensity, no perceptible flickering was evident.
I very recently reviewed this lamp on my website and gave it a rating of seven stars (on a zero-to-five ratings system)!
