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

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.

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.
They were very nice about this over the phone... and a bit perplexed because I seem to be the only person that has brought up this issue.

Here are pics I took of the new bulb at the show next to a halogen, I'm very impressed with these, if they hold up over time they seem well worth it...
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...

It's really tough to tell from the pictures but I would have to say the ones I have don't seem that much off in a direct comparison?
What I DO notice though is just how much WIDER the beam width is on the new model when compared to the old ones. That spread is a fair number of degrees wider than the older models and why I really prefer them over the older models in overhead lighting fixtures.

|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.|
