This light has a great natural color. Be aware though that it narroly focus the light, this worked well in my application, a light in a fixture near my tv. This narrow focus of the light prevents reflections on the tv from bulb that happened with the prior light in the fixture. It is also very bright. Overall it has worked well for my application.

I already have the equivalent lights (according to specs) in the brand Eco-Stoy bought from an independent shop. Home Depot does not carry them so I bought these to go in an adjacent area. Both say they are 3000K, but these look noticeably greener than the Eco-Stoy lights (which are perfect). Also both say they are 40 degree flood, but these seem like a narrower beam. I am returning the two unopened ones (and the two opened ones if they will take them) and going back to the independent shop for more Eco-Stoy. I am not sure which brand is the most accurate as to how it is labelled, it is possible the Eco-Stoy are closer to 2700K (which I notice a lot of other bulbs are labelled). All I know is the other ones look a lot better than the Cree, which just seem harsher.
