Re: Cabin Reading Lights - LED? Advice please

New boat lights seem to be all LED. My experience with LED lights is that they make a harsh light which is painful to read by (I read A LOT).
Supposedly LED tech has improved?

Can anyone recommend GOOD CHEAP-ish cabin reading lamp? Brand? Vendor?
Advice for which LED which make a warmer brighter light for reading?

Thank you!
Very happy with the Alpenglows. Have a number (7?) of their area LED lights and 1 of their LED reading lights. Their reading lights have a dimmer switch built in which is useful. Nice warm light color.

Had their previous generation llghts for a number of years and was happy to see they had an upgrade program to convert them to LEDs.
