LED Lighting Test #1

In a whim we purchaced some LED lamps from eBay. The bulbs are a standard automotive 1056 base. Total cost for 4 bulbs including shipping was $30.97. Not too bad and worth a test. Each bulb is 4 watts which is the same as each string
We tested the livingroom, kitchen, bedroom counter and bed overhead lights.

The results are posted on our web site. But suffice it to say that we were disappointed at best from the results. We were not prepared for the stark color and dimness of the lighting.

End result - we are now still looking...Anybody need some 1 watt led modules to play with cheap???

Not really - the picture doesn't do it justice as to how stark it was.
