I got a few of these Lighting Science Definity Omni V2 (…Galaxy S II 3D LTE X2 MAXX RT) to test, and they’re awesome. Thanks to Ben Brooks for the tip.
This bulb shares the same even, omnidirectional light as the GE Energy Smart LED and Philips AmbientLED that I liked so much in my big LED-bulb review. They’re much brighter and warmer-colored than the GE, they produce a more natural-looking “warm white” than the Philips, and they’re more attractive than both in many partially exposed fixtures.
I wish I discovered them before I bought so many of the GEs. Now I’m very expensively upgrading some of them to this Lighting Science bulb where the GEs, being 40-watt equivalents, didn’t produce enough light.
That’s the problem with being on the cutting edge of lighting: it’s easy to waste a lot of money on bulbs that aren’t quite right, and then you find a better choice long before yours have died. Anyone who has ever tried to buy CFLs is probably familiar with this.
These won’t replace a 100- or 75-watt bulb, but they’re the best 60-watt replacements I’ve seen. I’ll update my review with new photos once I get my Philips L-Prize bulb in a few weeks.
