I see several 48-5050 panels listed on eBay for under $4 from Hong Kong and the Philipines but they are pure or xenon whites (I'm assuming the 5-6k range). I wonder how the colors look on those...

That color range is great for areas where you are doing work and need really good light. But in my experience, those look really sterile. DW hates them (and you know what that means) because she thinks they look blue. I don't like them because they make my trailer look like my office, or like a hospital room; kind of the same color as the florescent tubes we have in some commercial applications. I know the "warm white" is not as "true" a light, but to me it just feels warmer and more inviting... even if it is technically a little less useful.

I'd agree. Whatever LED gets me as close to the stock 921 bulbs is where I'd want to be.

I agree with s1njin, I just want to know which ones are the closest in color to the stock bulbs. BUT I do want to switch to LEDs. Please can someone with experience tell us less experienced people which "one" that is??? Thank you.

The best I can do is recommend you look at some side by side comparisons of pictures earlier in this thread.

Everyone's perspective is a little different.

Kind regards,
Doug

just purchased and started to install these. I am a bit disappointed though. the color is too white and they aren't bright enough for my general lighting desires. I do intend to use them for the reading lights above the beds.

Here is my question:
An 11W 921 bulb has a 180 Luemen rating with a 2800K color temp. The minimum color temp I can find for 921 LED replacements has been 3000K.

Does anyone know of an LED replacement with a 2800K color temp rating?

I think it might be difficult to find an LED that lists a color range or a listing that is accurate. I went with the "warm" 48 SMDs 3528 and they seemed ok to me. I don't have a means of measuring lumens or color temp but I suspect a 48 5050 would be a bit brighter. I don't know if anyone sells a panel with more than 48 SMDs that would fit in a TT light housing.

Most of the replacements I've looked at have listed a range for the color temperature (2500-3000K for example) with a subjective descriptor like "warm white". I recently purchased a set that was listed as "warm white" with a 3500K rating (IIRC) that was almost right. It seems to me that the difference between 2800 and 3000 would not be within most lower-cost manufacturers tolerance?

Sorry, despite all the bulbs I've tried, I still haven't found "the one". Maybe next round, I'll have better news...
