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.

This is a pretty bright light. It's more like sunlight than the yellow tone of an incandescent light bulb. I put in inside a white globe on a ceiling fan and am quite satisfied.

I've got to doc some points for being so expensive. Fortunately, these things are built to last years, so if you aren't currently collecting Social Security, chances are you'll live long enough to make back the money you spent with energy savings. I also have to doc points as these bulbs are not sized to fit properly in some lamp fixtures.
I bought one of the first generation LED bulbs eight years ago, and it couldn't even outshine a candle. For years I waited for brighter LED light bulbs to be manufactured, but nothing on the market could equal the lumen output of a traditional incandescent. This is the only product out there that can. It illuminates like nothing I've ever seen. It's almost like intense moonlight. The U.S. government is in the process of banning incandescents, when anyone who cares about the environment should be petitioning to ban compact fluorescent bulbs instead. Every time I see one of these going green commercials featuring some lady standing out in the wilderness holding one of these CF bulbs, I want to vomit. Don't these people realize that if one of those bulbs breaks, you've got to send OSHA out to clean up after all of the escaped mercury. People aren't supposed to dispose of these bulbs in regular trash but they do, by the millions, leading to the further pollution of our ground water. These LED bulbs outshine Compact fluorescents. They contain no harmful chemicals. They emit no harmful radiation (CF bulbs emit some UV rays and a slight amount of X-rays). They use less electricity than CF bulbs and far less than incandescents. They don't get too hot to handle, so your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard in the summer, which contributes to your energy savings in a way the manufacturers don't mention. This is a technology of the future available to you today -a truly green technology.
