What is the difference between GE Reveal and your products?
I just bought a new house and will be upgrading the lights there. I'm a big GE bulb fan but recently ran into your site. Can you explain the difference between what more you provide vs GE reveal and refreshing series of lights?
By our review of the GE Reveal and Refresh lights, they appear to vary in size and features, though the voltage requirements and lumen output of these items appear to be comparable to our standard A19 lightbulbs. That being said, it appears that some of these GE products are dimmable, whereas only our filament A19 bulbs and BR30 bulbs are compatible with dimmers.
Further, it appears that our LED lights can offer a higher CRI of 95+, whereas the GE products provide a CRI of 90. The higher CRI can be very beneficial for installations such as artwork studios, galleries, and video capture where robust color-accurate illumination is required.
As our products are designed to be human-centric, they are created to provide full-spectrum, high-quality output that provides a high CRI to combat eye fatigue while ensuring color accuracy. Unfortunately, we have not been able to locate the full photometric reports for the GE products, which we would like to use to provide you with a comparison of the spectrum output.
In lieu of that, we have attached a link to our full set of photometric test reports for our full spectrum lights in the hope that it proves to be useful for your product comparison.
Can you also tell me how your light bulbs compare to the product below? It appears to have a higher CRI and R9 value.
The GE Sun-Filled LED product appears to be a new product with what appears to be an improved spectrum intended to better approximate natural daylight. In this regard, the color performance appears similar to our A19 and BR30 products (both of our products achieve 95 CRI and 80+ R9).
Unfortunately, the GE Lighting website does not provide additional information about the extended CRI values, chromaticity, or flicker performance, so we are unable to make any definitive comparisons beyond the general CRI values that their website indicates.
We appreciate your inquiry and will definitely see if we can find more information or even perform internal testing on the GE Sun-Filled product soon!
We would perhaps recommend purchasing both products to test and compare as we can offer a 30-day free return window for all of our products. (Hopefully, GE Lighting's authorized retailers offer a similar returns program, allowing you to perform these tests).
