Cree TrueWhite LED lightbulb gives best color, most flexible incandescent bulb replacement

LED Lightbulb manufacturer Cree has added to its stable of power-sipping bulbs. The Cree TrueWhite series bulbs emit natural LED light. The CA specification focuses on six quality attributes for LED lamps, including color temperature, color consistency, color rendering, dimmability, lifetime and light distribution. The new CA standard requires all retrofit lamps to achieve a CRI of 90 or better - the higher the CRI of a bulb, the more accurate the actual color of the objects it illuminates. The Cree TrueWhite is the highest-scoring LED bulb on record, scoring a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 93.

The high-performance bulb uses 78 percent less energy, and lasts 25 times longer than typical incandescent light bulbs. The bulbs turn on instantly, are dimmable with most standard incandescent dimmers, and are backed by Cree's industry-leading 10-year limited warranty. The new Cree bulb is available for $19.97 for the 60-watt replacement.
