Life expectancy

On the other end of the spectrum, its life expectancy is just 10,000 hours -- less than half of what you'll get from most other LEDs.

Philips claims a yellowy color temperature of 2,700 K. When we tested the bulb out, it came in right on the money at 2,701 K.

Non-dimmable

The Philips LED isn't rated for use with dimmer switches, so if you like to dial the light down low without flicker or buzz, you'll want to look elsewhere.
