Pros: Can't beat natural full spectrum sunlight. Price isn't too bad either, assuming it lasts as long as advertised.
Cons: Size... it's huge. Doesn't work with a dimmer switch.
Best Uses: Works well for reading, no eye strain. Lets you see things as nature intended, no pale yellow glare.
Describe Yourself: Occasional Photographer
This bulb is very nice, looks like sunlight. I have this in the center of a 14x16 room, and it lights it up like daytime. Make sure you have plenty of room in your fixture, this thing is a monster.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
