Traditional looks

No futuristic, flattened design here -- the Philips Warm Glow LED is a classically-shaped light bulb aimed at fans of incandescents.

Plenty bright

At max brightness, you'll get well over 800 lumens from the Warm Glow LED.

Efficiency

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.

Maximum brightness

With the light dimmed all the way up, the bulb shines at a yellowy 2,700K.

Minimum brightness

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.
