Paying $4 a bulb is difficult after paying $0.50 or $1 or whatever it was for 60W equivalents when there were eco rebates. Yea it's not 100W, but it's also 8x or 4x cheaper

Paying rent and buying food after living for free with the parents is difficult, but sometimes you just have to do it.

If you are looking for daylight then Canadian Tire have 4 pack 100W for $21 . It’s not the best deal however one of the cheapest I have seen now a days for 100W equivilant daylight . In GTA You can also stack 10$ off 40$ coupon , printable from RFD link

Are these 5000k? Just says daylight on the link - I didn't see it specify 5000k

I have tried the Feit 1600 lumen 3000K from Costco. The color temp and brightness is good, but they are hit and miss as to whether they buzz when dimmed. The IKEA Ledare 1600 have much better dimming behaviour, but are a touch too yellow, and very pricey.

Long story short, I'm definitely going to try and pick up a few of these to compare. Thanks OP and others.

Bright white is also horrible - such a sterile atmosphere.
if it helps this is still yellow. True bright white is when we get to the 5000k level. I've bought some 1000lm 5000k bulbs from dollarama they're alright but they aren't the phillips bulbs

Philips, I’ve tried their older 8.5W non-dimmable LED bulbs from Home Depot and they emit a buzzing sound. Not loud as a refrigerator but certainly annoying enough.

I’ve had good luck with Sylvania, Feit and Cree. Currently in our house there’s a mix of Philips, Sylvania, Cree, and Feit. None of the bulbs have died yet. Cree has pulled out of Canada though. In my room I use Cree’s CRI 90+ LED bulbs bought in California, USA. Feit I’ve bought some of theirs during their Lowe’s sale and it’s fine. Noticed some PWM flickering on the cheaper models though.

Lighting expert reporting in, I do commercial and institutional lighting design for a living so there's a few things to jump in on.

This is a great deal, in my experience, Philips and Cree are the two best bulb manufacturers. 1600 lumens is huge, the 100W equivalents don't go on sale often and for a time, there weren't the same rebates available on the 3000k bulbs. This is a result of higher output and warmer colors generally being less efficient, but it's better now than it was.

The difference between 2700k and 3000k is negligible. The human eye has a hard time discerning any differences smaller than 500k and most colors will seem normal over time.

Personally I like cooler light in the kitchen and warmer in the bedroom. There's a pretty new thing in lighting design that isn't fully agreed upon called melanopic lux. This is a type of light which is supposed to suppress melatonin, there are building standards that are starting to get traction which involve subjecting people to cooler lights, most notably WELL buildings. So in a spot like the kitchen, I like a cooler light which can wake up and make me feel energized.

Good deal here.

If they're still around Staples has a set of 2 x 60W 3000k equiv LED blubs for about $3.60 on clearance. They have a 25% off clearance so that's a little more than a buck each. I'll say YMMV but i got a bunch and they seem decent.

If you are talking to someone, then suddenly turn your head to the side while still talking... they'll turn and look the same direction you're looking at... LMAO it's GREAT lol so many people do that lol, especially if you do a double take lol, try it out :D
