After several years of faithful service from my first-generation Nichia Hi-CRI Mule, I decided I needed something brighter for desktop photography. There was only one choice, in my mind: another Nichia Hi-CRI Mule.
I wanted brighter, and boy, I got it. I remember when I got my first-generation Mule I was impressed by the color-rendering, but the brightness left something to be desired. This new one blows the old one out of the water. Definitely would buy again.
