I have a rather extensive list of bulbs with a number of manufacturers listed
with detailed statistics/characteristics. I could not find a Sylvania Designer
BUT I did find an Osram Design 50, which is also a 5000k bulb. It comes in
15, 20, 35, 40, and 60 watt bulbs.
BTW, if anyone wants a copy of this list just let me know. This list was
posted somewhere by George Booth for Joseph Sellinger. It could have been
posted on this list. I don't know. I received it from Drew Warwick. It is a
thorough list of bulbs.
