Accurate 6000-6500k LED strips?

Hey guys,

Has anyone come across any LED strips on Ebay that have accurate and consistent 6000-6500k color? Ive tried a few different ones and they always seem to be closer to 8000k-8500k, closer to blue than white.

thanks!

For architectural lighting you don't want a high variation in color temp. Would look odd..

Misspelling corrected..

6500k led "is" always bluish..
LED's unless carefully chosen always have a range..



There is no magic K for plants really. You are probably best served w/ 5000k-ish or a combo of k's so you can "adjust to taste".
