Re: Lightbulb help.

Sorry my mistake. the mid colour can go by a few different names.

DAYLIGHT is probably the best for household use.

Re: Lightbulb help.

I think it all depends on what you're used to as to which works best.

My view is that if you're going from Incandescent or most CFL bulbs you're probably best going for Warm White bulbs as these are roughly the same type of light.

Cool White and Daylight have their uses but have more blue light in them, so aren't so good if rooms you'll use in the evening as they'll feel a bit harsh.

Correct. And Daylight helps with people like me who suffer from S.A.D.

No need to hire a lightbox from the NHS these days. Oh, just checked and they have stopped the service.
