I have a couple of these in use and I think they're good for what they
cost, but I don't know what their ratings are.  I'll estimate that the
color temp is a little lower than a daylight bulb, but higher than a warm
white, so lets say about 4500 K.  The color is a little yellowish - very
yellowish if your preference runs to blueish (by my standards) light like
a cool white.  Its color rendition is definitely better than cool white,
but probably not as good as a Chroma 50.
