The product was a Sylvania 14 watt that puts out 1100 lumens in the 2700k color range; a warm white.
I have to admit that I love it. I have put it in various fixtures around the house, testing how it looks against different colors and textures and the results have been very good. During these changes I have not been telling my wife and she has not noticed any color problems. It has looked good to me in general, but she is a visible spectrum superchromat (yes, I did just drop a Brent Weeks reference) and the color of light put out by CFL bulbs or 'hotter' LEDs drives her bonkers. She is one of those people that will fuss over twenty shades of white paint because they are meaningfully different to her eyes and she hasn't been bothered by the changes with this Sylvania LED.
Starting in January, I think I'll start picking up one or two of these a month and replace our most commonly used lights. That way it will spread the expense out and I'll still get started on moving to modern bulbs.
I'm not a fan of CFC and Mercury, and after having a few explode during a power hit, I won't have them in my house anymore.
This is a 5 year investment and a major expense, but these should be the last light bulbs I ever buy - 25,000 hour rating - Life 23 Years!
Overhead Room Lights got 14W (75W replacements).
Bathrooms 8W and 12W (40W and 60W replacements).
Cupboards and Stove 8W (40W replacements).
There is a big price difference between the 8W and 12W/14W, so if you can get away using the 8W, that might be the way to go, especially if you have multiple bulb lights.
Light color is perfect 2700K. Full 360° light. Very little heat in the bulb. Size and shape is comparable to regular A19 lights.
The bulbs are a bit heavier and will droop down if on spring tabs.
I didn't experience any buzzing.
Price should come down - because I just bought them today.
You're not getting a great deal more energy efficiency than a compact florescent bulb, but you're getting instant on at full brightness, which is nice, and they are brighter than I expected for only 14 watts. The bulb is also dimmable, can be used in outdoor fixtures from -4 to 109 degrees F, and the light is not directional, like many LED bulbs. In a ceiling fixture, they illuminate the whole room evenly, and look more like a traditional incandescent bulb. I was an early adopter of CFLs and they've come a long way but LED is the future. Still a bit pricey, but you will more than recoup the cost in energy savings over the lifespan of the bulb. I would definitely go with this over the Philips 17 watt.
Still going strong in the living room lamp. In the dining room, I sometimes forget that the dimmable bulbs can only be dimmed so far before they start to flicker, and I have to turn up the light a bit until it stops.
I bought four Sylvania 60-watt LED equivalents for a dining room ceiling fixture and liked them so much I got this 14-watt (75watt output) for a lamp I read and work by in the living room.
At 2700k, the color temperature closely matches the warm light of an incandescent bulb, and lacks the harshness that people often think of when they hear 'LED bulb'. Speaking of hearing the bulb, I don't hear any buzzing, and the bulb sits in a traditional cloth shaded table lamp some 3 feet away from my head. The lamp is not a dimming fixture.
While Sylvania says that these bulbs are dimmable, they dim differently compared to incandescent bulbs, but are far less twitchy than dimmable compact florescent bulbs. The main difference is they don't dim past a certain point, and that's by design. The packaging indicates that the bulbs are actually not 100% compatible with ALL dimmers, and to check the website for details. So... I did. I looked for the documents 'Dimmer compatibility list' and RETRO-DIM at SYLVANIA.com/LEDRetrofit (indicated on the packaging) and couldn't find the information.Read more ›
