Philips Clear LED Preview - CNET
I love LED light bulbs. Real power savings, real longevity, such a simple upgrade to invest in your home, with a real pay off. But one of my hangups is that so many of the bulbs are directional.
For example, I have a small chandelier that hangs over my kitchen table. With regular incandesent bulbs it lights the table but also the cieling above it and the room around it. I replaced the 5 40 watt bulbs (200w) with LED’s (25w) and they works wonderfully, nice natural light, but they only light the table. the ceiling and the room is noticeably dark.
Well Phillips is out with a clear bulb designed to be more like the traditional clear incandescent that lets you see the internals and provides a sparkle to your light. But I think the best part of this bulb is that its a true omni-directional LED bulb.
As soon as these hit my local Lowes I will be making the switch.
