Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Not as advertised. Use your phone. Can be improved with a simple modification.
Pros: It has light.
The USB charging is nice.
It's actually got a pretty big battery.
Cons: I suppose I should have looked at the specified measurements. I expected it to be half the size, but it's actually about the same size as my phone. (I should note, I do have a super slim phone.)
This is a little brighter than my phone's screen, but the colour is bluish. It wouldn't have been hard to add a tint to the plastic, at least. Meanwhile, my phone has a much brighter (and much better quality) LED flashlight on the back, and that's been a much better experience.
Given that 800 lumens is a 60-watt bulb, I'd say this product is not 300 lumens. I've been comparing it to flashlights and things, and I can't imagine it being more than about 100 lumens.
(I imagine they measured the eight LEDs at 35 lumens each, for a total of about 300, but then wasted a bunch of that light in the design.)
Other Thoughts: If it actually achieved 300 lumens, I'd forgive all its other shortcomings. As it stands, it's basically like reading by the light of a smartphone.

I ended up doing some digging. It uses regular display technology: The LED light is caught by a sheet of acrylic (or similar). That's got little stipples in a specific pattern so that it throws the light evenly outward. On top of that is a matte sheet to diffuse the light. This is basically a small little LCD screen without the LCD, which again leaves me thinking I should just go ahead and use my phone.

The frame is one shaped piece of plastic, and the front and back of the device are just thin plastic sheets cut to size and glued on. Everything you see is sandwiched between that: Paper backing, battery, more backing, acrylic panel, and diffuser. The LEDs are lining the top and bottom edges, and the circuitry is near the bottom portion.

I found out that they added foil strips on top of the LEDs to block the visibility. (After all, you're supposed to see the diffuse light coming from the rest of the face, not hotspots of light from the edges.) I peeled that foil off, and reapplied the front face. I think it puts out about 200 lumens, now. Also, the plastic in those areas is a little yellower, which cuts the blue light a bit. That modification alone has raised my rating from about 1/5 to 3/5.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 They give light, big surprise=)
Pros: These light bulbs give light and look good compared to the clear or swirl alternatives. They are pretty bright once they get going.
Cons: I've bought these several times and while it says on the box lasts 7 years/4000 hours, these lasted me a little over a year and a half. The fixture where I put them has 5 bulbs and last time I waited til 3 were burnt out to replace all at the same time. They all burnt out within a week of each other and it was a little over 1.5 years. So 4000 hours is 166.6 days constantly on which they are not. So the not disclaimed longevity combined with the cost (more expensive than other bulbs) is a big con.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend these to anyone else.
I really buy them for looks and because I'm lazy (it's really easy to reorder on Newegg, go Newegg=)).

Categories > Standard Bulbs > Ledu > Ledu Corporation LEDL9111 Under Cabinet Lamp- 64in. Cord 3-Prong- 25 Watt Bulb- White

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Title of this product is misleading.
Pros: Nice light for my work bench. 36 inches......I don't think anyone cares how long the cord is. I imagine everyone is more concerned about the size of the lamp, and it's 36 inches for those who want to know.
Cons: It's a nice fluorescent light. It's 36 inches long. The power cord is 64 inches long. Which is misleading. Myself and my coworkers got the impression this was an LED light that was 64 inches long.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice light at a good price. I just want people to know it's a 36 inch fluorescent light.

Pros: It's so difficult to find "bright white" bulbs, that I was delighted that Newegg carried them. They arrived in a timely manner and were very securely packaged.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Not worth the money
Comments: I purchased these to brighten up a recently painted bathroom at my office. The color is exactly as stated, although I found out did not work for my bathroom. It has a very slightly blue tone which is expected in this temperature range. Good color for getting work done, not for poopin.

The only real complaint I have is the warm up time. For normal lighting this is probably fine, but for a men's bathroom where the light is on for maybe 90 seconds at a time it is terrible. By the time you are washing your hands the light is at full brightness but before that its noticeably dimmer. This lead to me returning them.

I realize warm up time is common on these types of bulbs especially at this brightness. But for >$20 a box I expe3cted it to be better.
