Good choice. My personal preference in all lights, not just HDS, is 5000k and below, high cri. The lone exception is the HDS "High Noon" 5700k emitter when available. It's right there with the best sub-5000k stuff out there. HDS as a rule are bombproof, reliable , and the UI can be set up to really anything you need. Enjoy your new light!
I called to place an HDS order today.
If I opt for the 300 Lumen 5k CRI 90 LED then I have to wait until May 17th for the Berryllium Copper event to end as it's first reserved for those.
I can order the 325 lumen 6.2k CRI 72 LED today.
I just waited...
Thank you. It's hard to decide because I don't have the luxury of trying before buying. The good news is that there isn't a bad decision...just one that might be better.
I've always thought I wasn't picky about color rendition...but maybe because I've never seen good color rendering. The gentlemen on the phone has a 5700K emitter.
I like a cool light...so I think I'd be happy either or.
I'm also not thrilled that my $339 light choice is not good enough for the high CRI 300 Lumens 5000k emitter until May 17th, after the Berrylium folks get their pick-of-the-litter.
The gentleman on the phone was most likely one of two people
- Henry - Henry IS HDS.
So while the wait may be unpleasant, at least the emitter you want is even an option...
