Even for me, who has gotten used to 6500k lights, higher temps remind me of old hospitals. Not just led, even cheap fluorescent tubes that come with battery lanterns are also offenders.

@RRK:
That was one of the worst things that could happen to me, I suffer from night blindness, and the high colour temperature means I struggle to see clearly.  :(
Under sodium lighting, particularly LPS, I have no problems at all.! :lps: :love:

There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

Another pet peeve I have about lighting is the amount of dead lamps when multiple are present (not only leds). A poorly maintained office building where the rooms are good but the hallway lights are half dead, or flickering. Led was supposed to solve this problem but since making a high voltage low amp power supply and putting the leds in series is easier than making a low voltage high amp power supply and putting the leds in parallel.

This may be a little irrelevant but it further enforces on the problem where the best working lamp breaks while the eol/bad condition one is fine. When I was extracting two VFDs, the one with small pins and chipped glass survived but the best condition one with long pins lost vacuum (black spot=vacuum good & white spot=vacuum loss).
