SunSun has a new fan! 10/20/2013
I am very happy with this light bulb as a replacement for the standard incandescent light bulb I use in my office desk lamp. So happy actually, I will probably be swapping out all of my incandescent lamps to LED as they reach their EoL in the coming months.
I believe most people tend to shy away from LED bulbs in their homes because of the price, sharp glare they emit, and bluish color hues. However, this bulb is none of those things. Because of its life expectancy of nearly 25,000 hours, at an operational cost of $0.85 per year, this bulb far outshines the stats of a typical incandescent bulb at 1500 hours lifespan and $4.85 per year.
This SunSun bulb has a frosted coating that prevents the sharp lighting characteristic that LEDs are notorious for. I enjoy the soft light output even when it’s being used in the bedroom nightstand lamp.
This bulb is rated at 3000K, which puts it on the warmer side of the color spectrum, but not quite where the typical warm color bulb shines at 2700K. I find the color very acceptable, still, and even better to have in my office setting where I sort through paper documents regularly.
This purchase of this bulb includes a standard 6 year warranty! Who knew you could get a warranty on a light bulb?
This bulb is significantly heavier than a standard incandescent bulb. Because of the added weight, some mechanical type lamps may droop, or need to be tightened and adjusted to compensate.
The metal base of the bulb becomes hot after about 10 minutes of use. However, it is still much cooler to the touch than the glass of an incandescent bulb after even 1 minute. The glass of the SunSun bulb gets warm, but has never gotten too hot to touch even after several hours of use.
The packaging says this bulb consumes 6.5W of power. My CyberPower UPS reads 6W of power when the lamp is plugged into it. The incandescent bulbs I use that are rated 40W consume 40-42W according to the UPS display. Also, at 450 lumens, this bulb is rated at 5 more lumens than the standard incandescent bulb (445 lumens).
