The newest LED from Philips is a low-cost Cree competitor that offers a unique twist on dimming. Click through for a closer look.
No futuristic, flattened design here -- the Philips Warm Glow LED is a classically-shaped light bulb aimed at fans of incandescents.
At max brightness, you'll get well over 800 lumens from the Warm Glow LED.
That brightness is impressive, given that the Warm Glow LED draws less than 10 watts. That makes it good for nearly 90 lumens per watt.
With the light dimmed all the way up, the bulb shines at a yellowy 2,700K.
Dim the light down, though, and the color temperature falls towards the reddish-orange end of the spectrum. Here it is at its minimum setting -- about 1,900K.
Unlike previous Philips LEDs, the Warm Glow LED comes with a 10-year warranty, matching the warranty offered by the Cree 60W replacement LED.
The Philips Warm Glow LED will retail for $10 at Home Depot starting this March.
