Philips Clear LED Bulb

Best for Resembling an Incandescent

Though companies have figured out how to mimic the colors of incandescents with LEDs, the actual bulbs still look a bit unfamiliar. If you're holding out for that old-school shape, the 40W-equivalent Philips Clear – with its exposed, filament-like lighting elements, and no visible heat sinks – is the LED for you. It's currently priced around $16 overseas, and it's due in the U.S. later this year. [$TBD;]
