5.0 out of 5 stars Like old incandescent lights on a dimmer, not exactly like bug light, September 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lemnis Lighting - Pharox 300 Flame LED light bulb (Kitchen)
This bulb is colored more like an older incandescent light on dimmer at a "slightly dimmed" setting. It is still possible to distinguish colors with this bulb - greens look green, reds look red, and blues seem blue. This probably won't appeal to people expecting anything like a cool-white fluorescent bulb, but it may appeal to those seeking something more like the color of a slightly-dimmed incandescent bulb, or the color of a bright flame...but who still want to perceive other colors in the room.

Color perception: This bulb is unlike the purely yellow sodium-vapor lamps, where colors of fabric look like shades of yellow (sodium lamps put out only two wavelengths of light, both yellow. unless something is phosphorescent, it can only reflect this pure yellow). The fluorescent yellow "party" or "buglight" bulbs I have tried are somewhat similar to sodium bulbs in that the phosphors seem to put out mostly yellow wavelengths ... so furniture looks like shades of yellow. This Pharox III bulb does *not* seem to do this - I can still distinguish colors in the room.

Personally, I really like this bulb at the bedside. The room looks reasonably normal (to a 50ish person who remembers incandescent lamps). I can see my laptop to type, and i can see colors in the paper books I read, but the place does not look like it is lit by an cool-white office lamp.

Excellent review, and I've read a lot of em'! I'm looking for an LED that has a warm light/glow to it. I don't need a lot of light, it's more about "mood". I wanted a light to replace the incandecent that I have that is always left on. (there's a reason for that) I can't stand harsh,"cool" light, and have been having a heck of a time finding an LED by reading reviews. (from what I've been reading, most people aren't like me, I like my light "low and mellow". If I want a LOT of light I turn on a different lamp!) Thanks for taking the time to review this..it was very helpful.
