Was reading the latest issue of consumer reports(jan06) where they tested dot bulbs(apc,ge,philips,sylvania andwagner).Lss,cu states the are no brighter than oe. FYI
They said that ''studies'' show people prefer driving with a whiter light.Iguess that is similar to yellow fog lights.The yellow color cuts brightness but increases depth perception. Supposedly adding a small amount of xenon gas to a bulb increases light output. My buddy runs yellow halogens on his rk.one smooth lens,one fluted,i can always pick his bike out in traffic,rob.trooper113 said:Assuming the same watts used, I don't see how one bulb can be brighter (lumens) than another, but....the other part of the issue is color temperature and human perception. Did CU address those?
I would agree with you most of the time, but the "best buy", $200 barbecue from lowes has been the cookinest MOFO I ever had..thunderpaw said:I love the fact that Consumer Reports exists. It is a great starting point for the uninformed. That said, I almost always disagree with their conclusions.
