EcoSmart 575 brightness, surprising
Hello. I've installed a Home Depot EcoSmart 575 bulb after reading on the forum that it's identical to the more expensive Cree CR6 branded bulbs and in fact made by Cree itself. Here's my question: the EcoSmart bulb is listed at 575 lumens while the bulb I replaced is for 900 lumens. I thought the EcoSmart bulb would be much, much weaker, but I can't tell the difference. I'm telling myself it MUST be weaker, but it's not registering. Is it my imagination? should I see my eye doctor ASAP?, or is the EcoSmart bulb brighter than it claims to be?
