The ones on the bottom are really bright and I put them in the galley. The others are in the ceiling fixtures. They come with 3 different adapters, so will fit just about any socket. The flat panels come with a n adhesive back that stick inside the fixture.

All you have to do is make sure they will fit your fixture. We went with the warm white and If I didn't tell you they were leds you wouldn't know it.

No, but they seem like a pretty good company. Maybe they will let you return them if you are not happy.

Yep got those to. I cannot tell the difference. They are just as bright. I bought the warm ones. I am really happy with them

I bought one bulb at a time until I found what I was looking for at a good price. Most of my lights are double sockets with a switch in the middle that turns on one half of the light socket (and one bulb) at a time. I chose warm-white for one side and if I want it brighter I turn on the second bulb that is a whiter light. But, that's just what I like. That's one of the great things about LED's is that there are so many different types you can always find what your looking for even if it's a little unconventional. Just takes a little research and a few tries.

Jim, All the LED bulbs have Kelvin Rating as to color and brightness.

The Kelvin scale pertaining to light has to do with color temperature. An incandescent bulb is usually rated at 2700º to 3300º K. Fluorescent tubes are 5000º K. Photographic flash is usually rated at 5500º to 6000º K. It ranges from the low numbers being orange to yellow, blue green, then blue white. Since we grew up with candlelight (1800º K) and incandescent light sources, we tend to feel more relaxed in color temps of 3500º K or less. Fluorescent and Mercury lights are more blue-green and we use them for work or public places.

Kelvin scale has nothing to do with brightness. Brightness is usually measured and reported in lumens. It can alternately be labeled in lux, watts, candela, or candles. The European Union in 2010 ruled all lamps (bulbs) sold in Europe must be labeled in lumens.

Pay attention to Kelvin rating and lumens, color descriptions, 'warm white', 'pure white' etc. are subjective and not accurate measures.

I replaced all of my 921 bulbs about a year ago. I found a supply of 36x1 led fixtures from China for about $3 each. They are rated at about 3500K and just as bright as stock. Love them. Haven't seen them on E-Bay since.
