This light is pretty good. The picture does not do it justice. You can see from the picture that the light output does not seem as bright as the 60 watt bulb next to it and the color is slightly more green. The light from this lamp is much more directional than the bulb, as you would expect. On the counter, the light is brighter than the 60 watt bulb, and whiter as well. All in all, good light. I would recommend to a friend.
