5500-6500k is the closest thing to white. That's the color of sunlight, or daylight (sun + sky).

8000-9000k is shade (light from the blue sky only) and has a blue tint
6500k is sunlight + blue sky, and is "white" by EU standards
~5750k is sunlight alone.
5500k is "white" as defined for photographic film, and "white" by U.S. standards
4500k is yellow-white.
3500k is orange-yellow.
2700k is orange-red.
1900k (candlelight) is red.

Our perception of light bulb colors is heavily skewed by having grown up with orange-yellow incandescents and orange-red wood fires as our only light source at night. We're so used to it, it seems "normal" (white) to us. But incandescents and sunset light are considered flattering for portraiture because the orange light color hides a lot of skin blemishes that are visible under white light. Your brain is remarkably good at resetting its perceived value of "white" depending on the ambient light (auto white balancing). So when it's adjusted to think orange light is "white", true white light appears blue.

For room lighting purposes, 2700k is appropriate for a bedroom, or mood lighting. 3500-4500k is appropriate for a bathroom or office. A kitchen should have 4500-5500k. An art workroom should have 5500-6500k lighting. Unless you're like me and have done so much white balancing of photos that you can see past the auto-white balance your brain does. And are annoyed by anything below about 4500k because it has a distinct yellow or orange tint to it. (If you're curious, TVs and computer monitors target 6500k as their white point.)
This deal has been going on since June. Nothing new. I'd only buy these bulbs for areas of infrequent use (closets/bathrooms/garage/etc)...and buy higher quality bulbs for normal living spaces. Also note that these bulbs don't have heatsinks and are not designed for enclosed lighting fixtures.



Actually, somewhere between 4000K - 4500K would be a white color without a blueish tint. 3500K (not available in LED, but for CFL) bright white looks extremely nice.

Note the life on these is just 10k hours, not the 25k to 50k hours on better quality LED bulbs. If left on 24/7 (like a porch light for instance), they'll last just over a year. The 3 year warranty is only if you send the bulb back to them, basically making it useless.
Still, they're cheap.

These put off very orange light. Ugly in my opinion.

I agree, whenever I try to get LED deals it's always soft white, never the 5000k that I want!

Any reason to buy these over the 2/$4 everyday Lowe's bulbs?

This price is always available for these bulbs. Personally, I think they're pretty good. It's nearly impossible to detect a color difference between these and normal incandescents. They create a nearly imperceptible audible hum.

Philips is considered to make much better LEDs than Feit. Feit are generally thought of the bottom of the barrel.

5000k is the blue looking lights. 3000k is the whitest you can get without tinting orange or blue.

4300k is the number you guys are looking for. That's the number on OEM HIDS for cars.

I have these in various fixtures around the house and they are great. No hum, good light output, not gross yellow.

recommended!

Conversely, if you put them in something like a night stand lamp (I use mine less than 30 minutes a day), you will get nearly 55 years out of them.

Porch light: 10,000/ 24 = 416.67/ 365 = 1.14 years of run time

Night stand: 10,000/ 0.5 = 20,000/ 365 = 54.79 years of run time
