SunLike10xss SOL Ultra High CRI vs. Waveform Lighting A19 Centric Home/Daylight?

I’m interested in getting some insight from people who actually used both of the above bulbs about the pros and cons of SunLike10xss SOL Ultra High CRI vs. Waveform Lighting A19 Centric Home/Daylight (specifically 4K color temperature).

From what I’ve gathered the price range seems similar on both bulbs – with SunLike costing around $4 more per bulb + $6 shipping fee. When purchasing several bulbs at a time the shipping fee doesn’t really increase price per bulb since you pay only $6 per order, not per bulb. Additionally, if you get the SOL version (which seems to have higher quality output compared to SAW) the cost comes down to $19 per bulbs. So it’s really only a $1 difference in price between the two bulbs. However, if you buy WaveForm in pack of 6 the cost per bulb comes down to $14.80 which is $5+ less per bulb so it is a significant savings compared to SunLike.

WaveForm ships from the USA so it is likely to arrive much faster than SunLike which might take a couple of weeks to arrive. However, this is only a problem if one is in a rush. I think the main question is about the quality of light produced and whether it is noticeably easier on the human eye.

According to this thread: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/70422 SunLike 10 ranks highest in CRI and mimics natural sunlight the most.

According to the specs Waveform Lighting has CRI of 95+ and of only R9 80+ (which is significantly lower than SunLike) but the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12jj1A6PNjHmWbFNu0FSisEztir7izxAh... gives it a score of: Ra = 98 which is significantly higher than the score stated on the manufacturer website. Which is correct?

One thing that stands out about the SunLike 10 is the size. It is significantly bigger than WaveForm. However, personally I’d be willing to accept bigger size for better output.

Does anyone have experience with both of the mentioned bulbs? What do you think are the pros/cons of each one to consider before buying?

For those who own SunLike 10 are there any negatives with the bulb? Based on the above thread it seems that SunLike 10 is the pinnacle of ideal bulb. Do you concur?
