LED Light Review, a consumer oriented review website for LED light bulbs, is pleased to announce a review of the Philips 420224 L Prize Winner LED light bulb.

LED Light Review carefully evaluated the Philips 420224 L Prize Winner 10-Watt A19 LED light bulb in key areas including packaging integrity, product design, build quality, light pattern, light output, and light quality. The efficiency and manufacturer warranty of the Philips 420024 were also examined.

Regarding the light quality of the L Prize winning bulb, Gordon White, Co-Founder of LED Light Review explains, “The Philips 420224 projects a clear and warm/yellow light. It’s not overly warm/yellow like its cousin, the Philips 409904. The Philips 420224 isn’t even as warm as our reference 60 watt incandescent. With the L Prize bulb, Philips has struck a keen balance between warmth and clarity.”
