    Not bad if you are happy with that color. IMO you have to get up around 4100K to get a satisfactory look

    I think you can get some lamps for around $1 a piece at big box stores, probably all non dimmable ones.

    Interesting how opinions differ. I find anything over about 3500 to be hideous.

    By the way the same page was touting 5000K for the same price.

    It's easy to forget how much blue there is in daylight compared to incandescent.

    kelvin should not be the only factor in deciding a LED , CRI and Lumens per watt , and dimmable should be deciding factors as well.

    Those are probably the junk line from Sylvania, for temp lighting I am sure ok.

    OK for temp lighting ax long as the work being done does not require color discrimination.
