GE's selling 'HD' LED light bulbs

Lighting
[MUSIC] Hey guys, I'm here with GE's new line of HD light LED light bulbs. Now that might sound a bit confusing. What is an HD light bulb? It's just their way of saying these bulbs are going to make the color Your home look better. The relaxed LED here have kind of a low candle light color temperature. The daylight tinted bulb here is the refresh LED. That's more designed to help you focus and stay alert during the day. And then here you've got the reveal LED LED on the table beside it, that's more designed for the bright whites I just mentioned. And if you take a look at this appetizing bowl of M&M's from our light bulb test, you can see that the colors do in fact pop a little bit, they look nice there. Especially with this shot, this is the reveal LED Be from the HD Light lineup. It's a bulb that locks out through the yellow light to make the white especially clean, and you can see that the white of that bowl looks very nice and vivid. My problem with the new Reveal bulb, even though I think it's probably the best bulb of the three, is that it isn't putting out Not enough brightness, only putting out about 554 lumens. Those 554 lumens aren't enough for it to call itself a 60 watt replacement. You really want 800 lumens or more. These bulbs do it, the reveal bulb doesn't. But it still calls itself a 60 watt replacement there in the box I call foul over that. I don't like that GE. It's not going to be 800 lumens, don't call it a 60 watt replacement. My other problem with these bulbs, is that they didn't do very well in my dimming test. None of them dimmed any lower than 10%. And all of them gave off a little bit of flicker as I dimmed them up and down on all of the switches. That is not uncommon with LED's but they were a little worse than average. If I were picking up bulbs for my home and I had dimmer switches installed in my walls, I'd probably go with something else. The relax LED here sells $8 per two pack, $9 per two pack of the daylight refreshed LEDs and $10 per two pack of the reveal LED. That's a very good price for a dimmable bulb that has uptaken color quality, I just wished they dimmed a little bit.
