Are these polarity sensitive? I don't like having one panel facing the ceiling while the other panel is oriented properly.

Most fixtures have the capability to remove the socket and rotate 180 degrees - or reverse the wires in the socket - and finally....if both sockets connect to the source wire, you could simply re-splice the connection to the source power wire.

Nope

Keep us posted on your assessment.

We were on the road for 10 days (Oregon and Washington coast!) and got home to these bulbs in the mailbox. Stuck them in last evening, not quite dark yet, and initial reaction was that they are whiter than existing bulbs but not as bright. Won't be using them in fixtures where one might want to sit and read, but will put them in the main ceiling lights. Won't be ordering any more of these so still looking for good LED replacements.

I realize LEDs have varying output, but I can't imagine how a 5-24 LED replacement can compare to the 921 bulb. The Flat Panels I evaluated with a light meter / provided a link to earlier in the thread have 48 LEDs - and the output was still less foot candles / lux than the 921 bulb.

I just put this on another post, but here it is. Also, if you click on my solar album (bulb order info is there) I have a base conversion that you can do to the inexpensive bulbs and make them SOFT WHITE (3500 Kelvin, and 300Lumens) They will be Soft White and as bright or a little brighter than the regular 921 bulbs. I have 4 so far in the TT and will be ordering a few more in the near future. I believe there are 66 LEDs on each bulb. The LED's do not exceed 90 degrees, so heat will not be an issue, unless they are not designed properly. Then that is another issue. The wife did not notice any difference between the 66 LED bulbs and the 921 bulbs. That is how close they are in output/color. The cost is a little more, but DW is happy and that makes me happy.

That's an impressive set-up.
Thanks for sharing.
