The high Kelvin rating LED's give off a very cold blue-ish light.

I would say that if you get much over 3200K, you're looking at too much blue/white and the color begins to significantly depart from the hue of the original incandescent bulbs.

The key is to make sure they HAVE a Kelvin rating. Many of the cheaper diodes just list the color as "warm white", or "cool white" with no numerical Kelvin rating. Those are the ones that don't look right at all and should be avoided IMO.

These are the ones I use:


They're not the cheapest you can get, but they come with different base adapters, and so far the adhesive has been good (with adequate surface preparation; I use alcohol pads). The color and brightness are perfect. When you have a regular bulb and one of these LED panels in the same fixture, you can't tell the difference unless you look directly into the fixture. The panels are SLIGHTLY brighter, but that's good for me. I've almost got my whole trailer switched out to these panels.

I use these... you cannot tell the difference in light color from the incandescent bulbs.
