Philips Tornado CFL in downlight

Click to view full size image

There are four of these E27 downlights in the kitchen and all have been fitted with 24W daylight Philips Tornado lamps by me. Unsure of the downlight but it's probably from the 1980s.

I've this lamp in 23W 865 color (G5 date code). currently it is on my table/desk/computer lamp, operating base-down.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

PHILIPS Tornado CFLS in DAYLIGHT!! Oh my flipping gosh you are so lucky! I so so so wish that CFLS of well known brands like OSRAM, PHILIPS and GE sold their CFLS easily in DAYLIGHT colour. Instead all around I see is horrid generic CFLS that remind me of cheap establishments especially those who are run by Asian business people I've seen shops like this all over West London and I hate the aesthetic and atmosphere as it feels 'alien' to me

I will give LEDisease a taste of my shoe

Almost everywhere you shop you get the Tornados in warm white and daylight. I have a mixture of both in use at home and prefer them over LED.

Daylight CFLs are almost non-existent in shops over here, I would buy them over LED too.

I use daylight CFL outdoor as well, economical on all night if you can't get hold of a PL outdoor fitting.

MVlamps: Yes, but its a pity 3500K CFLs are super rare, as that is my favourite CCT, I have converted Incandescent bulkheads to PL/2D in the past though.

Flurofan: I hate that loads of independent corner shops & post offices have changed to those ghastly LED panels from their 4 x 18w toffers Its even worse that they go from the usual 3000/3500/4000K T8s in the troffers, to the AWFUL low CRI 6500K colour in the LED panels, they make the shop look like a walk in freezer, even if its warm!

I would grab a 3500K CFL if I saw one, same goes for 4000K too Yep such a pity these blessed 6500K LED panels are being used in small shops although there are better coloured LED panels being used, a local shop not far from me is using them and they look alright in terms of colour quality for LED but even them they feel sterile. Imagine if you only had two choices of LED panels nothing else, one is bicycle light blue 6500K LED panel and the other one is a 'parma violet' tinge (~8000K) LED panel, I would go for the 8000K because in some weird way the purplish colour can look attractive. But that doesn't mean they are OK for replacing 4x 18W FL troffers

I believe these Philips Tornado daylight is 6000K-6500K so it has a blue tinge to it, but it gives off a better quality of light than a similar LED which is too blue. I think the CRI is better with this CFL too than LED. 3500K CFLs are very rare here too, I don't think I've seen them at all really. It's mainly 2700K or 6500K.
