Disappointing, misleading advertising
on March 21, 2010
This light was advertised as an equivalent to a 100W incandescent. I replaced a 30W CFL from GE that was similar brightness to a 100W incandescent. The results are disappointing to say the least. The pictures on the manufacturer's website have obviously had their color balance adjusted, or else this is a defective unit, as the light is much dimmer, and far too much on the blue side of the spectrum to call 'cool white'. It look s more like the 6700K HIDs on my car, than the 6000K advertised. Eyeballing it, I would say it is probably closer to a 50-60 W incandescent in brightness, with a CRI much lower than the >75 that is listed. I am looking into returning it under their 30-day gaurantee, and trying a warm white bulb instead.
