Full Spectrum Light Bulbs for the Studio

Has anyone ever used, or have any experience with high-CRI, Full Spectrum light bulbs from either Indoor Sunshine or BlueMax HD?

I'm trying to setup better lighting for my editing environment, and have come across these bulbs. On paper, they sound great: 5500K color temp with a 93-95 CRI...

They're not sold as photography or studio products, but rather "mood" or "well-being" products. They're supposed to emulate the summer sun indoors, for those who work inside.

I'm hoping they work well for judging print color, and keeping my eye's grounded when color correcting.

Any thoughts?
