Re: [APD] 8800K PC Lamps Are Great!
Glad you like your bulbs. Don't forget the brightest curve
for fluorescents. The light output rapidly declines
initially and then more slowly as they age. Brand new bulbs
always look brighter than older ones. But the diff
noticeably lessens after a short time.
True colors compared to incandescent lighting is one thing;
compared to noonday sunlight is another; compared to one or
another (type of) fluorescent is pretty much a wild card,
depending on the individual bulb design.
Try also the Aquasuns, rated 10,000 but an overall visible
light blend very similar to sunlight.
