Comment:
I have two tracks of 4 lights in my living room. I have warm yellowish tan walls with warm wood ceilings. I put one of these bulbs in one of the eight track lights and, after turning on the lights this evening, it turned the entire half the room a blue sickly color. I can't wait to climb the ladder tomorrow to remove it.
How long have you owned it:
