Full-spectrum all the way.
on September 24, 2012
The ALZO light bulbs are great. These 15 watt (equivalent to a normal 60 watt) were just what I was looking for. I had already replaced most of the lightbulbs in my house with the slightly larger ALZO 27 watt bulbs, but I had a couple of light fixtures that the 27 watt bulbs were too big for. Thankfully ALZO released these smaller 15 watt bulbs. The fact that these bulbs are full-spectrum (5,500K) lights makes all the difference in the world. All the positive things the other reviews have stated is true. The full-spectrum bulbs reduce glare and eye strain along with maintaing accurate colors.
Another thing I did was to trick my sleep pattern using these lights. My bedroom faces west and even then the only window is blocked by another building. Sunlight does not begin to enter my bedroom until well past 11:00AM, so if I relied on the morning sun to wake me up I would always think 11:00AM is 7:00AM. I changed out my main lamp in my bedroom to one of these full-spectrum lights and added a timer to turn the lamp on everyday at 7:00AM. I could not tell a difference with the full-spectrum light coming on at 7:00AM from real sunlight entering my room at 11:00AM. After many different attempts I have finally been able to reset my circadian rhythm back to a normal 7:00AM morning thanks to the ALZO full-spectrum bulbs.
