shadows and some very crispy specular highlights off reflective surfaces
(typical of a small light source a relatively large distance from the surface,
it becomes more like a point light source than a broad).  In some long-term use
environments it can produce some eyestrain. In a situation like this, it's a
good idea to use a number of these bulbs overhead, or add some that are bounced
off ceiling or walls to fill those hard shadows and soften the overall lighting.
