5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING BULB - BUY IT YOU'LL NEVER LOOK BACK, 6 Nov. 2007
By 
This review is from: Ecozone Biobulb, Energy-Saving Daylight Bulb, Bayonet Cap B22, 25W Equivalent to 100w, 1750 Lumens, Full Spectrum, Daylight White 6500k, Uses 75% Less Energy. Ideal for suffers of S.A.D (Kitchen & Home)
This bulb is fantastic. Not everyone suffers with serious SAD in the winter, but everyone definitely gets the blues on with dark mornings, evenings and gloomy daytimes so this is a real boon. You'll be in a room with it on and think you should be outside enjoying the sunshine, only to look outside and realise it's dark and miserable because the light is so natural you forget you've got it on! Great if you set it on a timer and put it in your bedroom to come on just before your alarm goes off - helps with the winter blues that make you just want to stay in bed because it's so dark - also much cheaper than the specialist SAD alarm clocks which are very expensive, the only difference being they gradually increase the light. Great for reading by as it's a very white light and so emphasises the contrast of the letters against the page, without being stark or cold. You will believe this is daylight I guarantee it.

Kim, you're confusing the wattage. 25w (wattage) of this bulb is the equivalent of a 100w Incandescent (a regular light bulb, google it if you're not sure) bulb. This is VERY bright and you'll have no need for anything brighter.

I agree. With this light I can even read without my glasses. Everyone is amazed when they see this bulb.

+1. Like fimac, I've got one of these on a time switch in my bedroom to come on before the radio turns on in the morning. It's extremely bright, slightly blue tinged, and subjectively really helps me get up in the morning. There's nothing worse than trying to force yourself out of bed on a cold dark morning - this bulb (plus a timer) has changed that. No going back for me!

Don't believe the marketing. These bubs are not good for SAD. Actually, they are bad for SAD because the light from this bulb contains a lot of the blue wavelength which decreases melatonin production in the body and that is what wakes you up. This is not what you want late at night when these bulbs are typically used. It will therefore disrupt your sleep and make your SAD symptoms worse.
