Omnidirectional design

The Osram LED sports an omnidirectional design, which means it puts outs light evenly in all directions. That makes it pefectly suitable for something like a reading lamp, where downward-aimed light is key.

Osram's LED dims quite well on standard switches -- we did detect a small amount of occasional flicker, though.
