Hyperikon!!! Amazing tint in the 4000K flavor. I use them in my basement where a cooler temp looks OK. In a living space, the 3000K is nice. I don't really notice the difference between that and 2700K though.
90+ CRI, available in 2300K, 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, 5000K flavors.
$4.45 per bulb with the 4-pack on amazon as I write this. Crazy!
Pretty strong PWM on them(Hyperikons) though like many other household LED bulbs.
The 80 CRI Phillips 9 watt bulbs I just tried had PWM too but, they seamed better then the Hyperikons and it was harder to see even on camera.
The Cree TW Series Candelabras have PWM too and it seams worse then the Hyperikons.
I really wish someone would make good quality LED household bulb with no PWM, I would gladly pay a bit more. I would take a moderate CRI model but, high CRI(90+) would be even better. It would be nice too if they would tell you on the package if they have PWM and what frequency it is. There really is no way to tell without buying one and testing it.
If it wasnt for the extreme energy savings I would just go back to incandescents like the GE Reveal. Household LED lighting tech still has a long way to come.
