    The closer you get to 5000k the brighter the light output is and also less colour in the violet/blue range

    well, its just the colour temperature, not the actual brightness.

    Some say, when the colour temp is brighter, it actualy can lower the actual brightness.

    When light gets too blue, which it can do at that end of the spectrum, you end up sacrificing brightness for colour.

    Stick with the lower one. :thumbsup:
