  • @lorna Just now seeing this--how did I miss it?!



  • @lorna Update: It looks eerily similar to the Hue bulb specifications. I'm not sure if they are accurate or just using the old ones, but they are definitely the same, just maybe brighter. So, going by that, well I doubt they are RGB, but they may be two or three sets or LEDs, like the uh Dim tone or whatever they are called.

    I'd really love to see some cyan and less flicker in these bulbs. The flicker is a bit minor and diffused a bit, but it's still there and I can usually catch it if I move my head quickly. On that note I guess I should state that I can now pick up on incandescent flicker.

    There are two types. One for lights that LITERALLY pulse on and off, maybe just a bad light or wiring or something, probably the light. The other is with functioning light, even low wattage lights like a 25 watt colored orange bulb. If I turn quickly, I can actually see the smooth pulse of the 60 Hz light! I know it's absolutely insane, but I can see that! It's so smooth that I don't think it could possibly bother anyone though, but it would be cool to test the lights on a DC power, just to see if it's gone.

    Post deleted - promoting products without permission isn't okay (the product link was longer than your comment!)



  • I thought it was just spam.

    @TwoCables Yes I bet you are right. The last spammer, I mean SEO specialist came back and yelled at me for deleting their post. If you see a spammy post by reporting it you can help train the spam filters on this and other sites - it really helps!
