    Comments about Philips Lighting Company 70 Watt, Coated ED17 Protected Warm White Metal Halide Lamp:

    Great exterior light - unlike clear metal halide bulbs, this one has a very warm (almost incandescent) color temperature for much more natural lighting. Color reproduction of landscape is very faithful under this light.
