[Real Canadian Superstore] Sylvania LED light bulbs 12 pack 8.5 watt 800 lumen 2700K YMMV $5.94

Lots of stock, not a blow out. Never seen them this cheap! Surrey Guildford location. Inside the box are 12 sylvania bulbs, not for use with dimmers.

$X.94 is clearance price. Probably wouldn't hurt to add a YMMV in the title, as well.

This is a "blowout" price (not sure why you say it isn't). That means it's VERY YMMV, it's very likely your store is the only one with this price. Great deal, but as with most RCSS blowout deals it's very likely only limited to very few locations.

I find 2700k being way too much yellow. I went to a friend's place who has some smart LET potlights where he can change temperature between 2700k - 6500k and we both agree 3500k is by far the best temperature. Enough warmth to let you know it's night, and enough white to be bright. The yellow cast typically asks for more lumens in order for our eyes to strain less.
When I did my potlights project I was able to find 3000k but I wish I was able to find 3500.

This is subjective. My wife and I had 3000k pots in our last house and found the light cold. We prefer the warm relaxing yellow of 2700k. We now have it everywhere.

If anyone from Grimsby or Oakville checks their location, can you let me know whether or not they have a deal? Thanks.

I'm with you. I much prefer 2700. Even 3000 is harsh. 2700 is very close to incandescent.

That's pretty crazy. I find 3500 amazing, 3000 ok, and 2700 way way too warm.

I actually informally investigated this (I find 2700K ideal) with some colleagues and my truly unscientifically produced theory was there is the a cultural element.

For the people that felt the "colder" colours were better their explanation was where they grew up, from a time before they were alive, fluorescent lighting (colder lighting) at home meant you were more affluent, while "warmer" light meant you were less affluent (used only a few incandescent lights, or candles).

For the people that felt the "warmer" colours were better they correlated the "cold" colour temps as being at work or at school (fluorescent lighting), while at home growing up they always used incandescent lighting.

It was an interesting distinction, and if there is any truth to it something I think most people don't realize.

i get the aspect of liking better what you grew up with (ie did you grow up with CFL's or incandescents) but the affluence factor I'm not understanding!

Doesn't say dimmable, so probably isn't.

Also the last time I checked RCSS in BC was still incorrectly charging a "hazardous materials" enviro-tax on LED bulbs that was only supposed to apply to flourescent (mercury content).
