Philips Ambient LED
Here is another bulb with a warmer color temperature and higher output rating. It's the Philips Ambient 12-watt LED that will be available next month in Home Depot stores and is available online now. It gives off 800 lumens, the equivalent of a 60-watt incandescent or a 14-watt compact florescent.
What's noticeable is the color temperature, which is 2,700 Kelvin and on the warm yellow end. The light dispersal seems better as well than the previous image. LEDs give off directional light, compared with the even glow of CFLs. Another quality to consider when buying lighting is the color rendering index (CRI), which measures color accuracy.
