ccriders Doesn't a blue hue improve contrast and help in things like chart reading and working on small stuff?

nickmerc I went and double checked mine again last night after reading this thread again. I am still very pleased with them. They are more white than my halogens, but I have a brighter feel in the salon now. Plus, the boat show price was great. I got two bulbs for $42. I am thinking of getting two more before the power boat show is over.

Maybe you and the missus are just feeling a little blue these days?

Cruisingdad I have spoken with Scad again this morning. I have sent them the pics. We may end up exchanging them for the older set. I will let everyone know how it turns out.

It "looks" dimmer, but that's probably because it doesn't shine nearly as much light on the fixture. It doesn't look bluer, it does look more white.


Now, with my hand under both the light output and color look nearly identical, matter of fact the halogen on the right looks whiter to me...


EXIF data to show no color balance monkeying going on, there was also no post processing other than resizing...

I am beginning to wonder if I have a bad set?? Do you see the color difference in my pics? Very different from yours. ANd again, I want to stress, it is hard to show blue in a pic so what you see as blue is REALLY blue (at least to me).

I will reach out to the sensibulb folks with my pics.

They are also brighter (the new ones) than the older sensibulbs. At least they appear that way to me. But still blue. Whether dull blue or bright blue, it is still blue. And quite candidly, I did not tell much of a difference between the halogens and the old sensibulbs as far as brightness. I would honestly say that when you put old sensibulbs in (mixed with halogens), it would be hard to tell a difference except that maybe the sensiblubs were brighter and sharper. But whatever... if I can't get anymore, it is like crying over spilled milk.

arf145 I can definitely see it in your pics, CD. Maybe it would be worth sending a picture to the Sensibulb folks to see if your results are what they would expect. If not, could be a bad batch.
