That halogen color of roughly 2900K is why I switched almost my entire house to similar halogens a while back. I found I could replace 100-watt incandescents with 60-watt halogens and be happy with the amount of light and much happier with the color of the light.

These Sylvania SuperSaver bulbs are only rated for 1000 hours (according to their spec sheet), which is shockingly low for halogens. Both the GE and Philips halogens I've bought recently are rated for 3000 hours.


My mother, the political reactionary, is buying up all the standard bulbs she can, because she claims to despise the look of energy-efficient ones. I just think she despises being told by the government which bulbs she should be buying.
