TLDR;

 

Does anyone know a good brand of LED bulb, 1100 - 1500 lumen (10 - 15W), that's 2700K instead of 3000K?

 

 

 

Background

 

We're starting to gradually replace bulbs with LED, as the 5+ year old CFL fail. I replaced one room with some Panasonic 3000K "warm white" bulbs that my wife finds a bit cold. They're no doubt warmer than their "cool white" bulbs, but they're cooler than the old 2700K CFL bulbs.

 

Does anyone know a good brand that's reasonably warm and quite bright?

 

 

 

Finds

 

Some Philips bulbs are 2700K, but I can't see any 10W+ on their website. I like plenty of light.

 

Orbit from mitre ten have three packs for $9 that are 2700K. Is this a decent brand? It's so cheap I wonder if they're rubbish.

Bunnings stock a good range of 2700L Osram LED lights in a range of wattages. To me they're a good second tier brand, not like Philips or Panasonic, but fine. Apparently they're rebadged Chinese manufacturers, they don't manufacture themselves.

 

I got the 10.5W / 1060LM version, but they come in both lower and higher wattages. From memory the highest was 13W and 1400LM or so, but I didn't need quite that bright. The Osram and Bunnings websites are both pretty rubbish, otherwise I may have found them myself sooner.

 

I've fitted them, they're not quite as orange as the CFL, but they're much more orange than the Panasonic 3000K. So long as this pair work ok I'll probably use them for the living spaces, and use high power Panasonic / Philips 3000K for the kitchen area.

 

@colinuu suggested Osram, thanks for point them out :)
