270 Lumens? Thats a little more light output than HALF a 40 watt light bulb. In other words, not much. Can't beat the price however.

What I like most about these new LED Bulbs is very very little Heat.
Especially with work lights where I can be directly under them.
My old Halogen Lamp on the Lathe, can be a real cooker.

A lot of earlier Bulbs had a Blue Cast that I did not like, however, recently I replaced my chandelier bulbs with "Warm White" LED's. Looks great with only a slightly lower overall brightness, but, with a greater than 90% power savings!

As a bonus, I'm thinking that some of these can be repaired should a LED go out. Typically though, I think LED's tend to just get dimmer and dimmer over time.

I do notice that the Blue Cast Bulbs make my complexion look younger, so I need to use a whole butt load of them.
