I have to say, even though OTT usually has great reviews I am a skeptic, especially when it comes to pricey items that tout miracles. I saw this on sale for $5.99 and thought why not try it. Well, I am sold. I need true "NATURAL" light as I am an artist, mainly coloured and graphite pencils and watercolour. Here are the ratings on this bulb:

1,600 Lumens
This means that it lights up a large area due to the 1600 Lumens. A cloudy day outside is around 1,000 Lumens. Lower Lumens means that it does not light up a large enough area for your work. I got a lamp with only 530 Lumens and it is useless to me as it only lights up an area no larger than 12"x12". This lights up my whole work station.

5,850 Kelvins
This is a very bright white light, Noon sun is around 5,000 - 5,500 Kelvins. I actually thought this light would be a lot on the blue side, but it is not, to me it looks like bright daylight and more neutral with a tint of blue. That is great because it means that I see colour as the actual colour it is from the subject I am drawing to the colours that I am using. The other nice thing is that this light bulb does not shine up the graphite pencils, which is huge for me.

90+ CRI Rating
This means that you see the actual color that is in front of you, if it is a bright red orange, that is what you see and not a purply red. CRI is very important for artists as it helps to see the actual color you are working with and drawing from and it is attached at the hip with Kelvins, which is lighting temperature such as cool or warm. If you do not have a high CRI rating then do not get the bulb or light, it does not matter if the Kelvins are there.

I have bought at least a dozen of these bulbs. There are a lot of things to hate about most compact fluorescent bulbs (slow to start up, burn out in a short time,expensive) BUT the Ott light bulbs are great. We use them as reading and work lights; my wife loves them in her sewing room. I've never had one burn out and they start up at full brightness instantly.

Due to Lowe's low price on this bulb, I decided to compare it with the GE 6500K daylight bulbs I've been using.

After careful examination, I can honestly say this OttLite bulb does not live up to the hype and comparatively high cost found at most retailers.

The color temperature is practically indistinguishable from the GE 6500K, which is rather cool (bluish).

There may be a very slight difference in color rendering with the OttLite bulb, as tested with various colors (and whites) of various objects, but it certainly isn't a big enough difference in CRI to justify the much higher cost found at most retailers. The relatively high color temp -- I don't believe this thing is anywhere near 5000K -- probably adversely affects its higher CRI in terms of improvements noticed by the user.

Admittedly, these were not scientific tests, with the only equipment being my highly calibrated eyes. But, that's what this bulb is being pushed as -- a superior bulb for humans to view and read by.
Now, if one were to compare using costly color analysis hardware, I'm sure the resulting graphs would be more impressive, but the majority are likely more interested in real world performance.

It also has a warmup time similar to that of the GE daylight bulb. At full brightness, the output seems pretty close among the two; slight advantage OttLite due to its lower (by 1W) consumption. Again, no lux meter was involved, just my own perception of lumen levels.

OttLite prefers to remain vague about the specs on their bulbs, presumably due to the supposedly intrinsic and undeniable superiority of them -- they're great, just because.. they are! Specs? We don't need no steenking specs!

It is awesome how much clearer the written word becomes when using these bulbs. My wife and I can now read longer without the eye-strain our old "yellow" CFL bulbs caused.

I've been using my wife's OttLight sewing lamp in my office. I love the natural light for use in my photography hobby. The nature light of OttLight really showcases the proper colors of my prints, much better than ugly yellow compact fluorescent light. But she needed her sewing lamp, so I decided to give these bulbs a shot and see if they could be as good.

I went with the 25W size rather than the 15W. These lights are BRIGHT! I actually am only using 1 bulb in my ceiling light which takes 2 bulbs because they are so bright. The color is excellent. A true nature light that brightens the whole room. The light feels great on your eyes, colors are brilliant and true. I can't speak of the longevity of these lights since I've only been using it for about a couple of weeks, but so far I'm quite happy. I estimate you get about 80% of the brightness as soon as you turn on the light, and about a minute late it's at full strength, but given how bright this light is, that works just fine. If you're looking for a good source of natural light that you can use in any room with standard bulb outlets then this product should work for you.
