40 bucks seems a bit pricey for LED bulbs. I'm in the middle of changing virtually everything on the boat to LED, including reading lights, overhead lights and deck and nav lights. I've had no trouble finding the 'warm' white LED bulbs in all shapes and sizes (all Chinese, of course). So far the light has been acceptable, although not as nice as incandescent bulbs. I was offered the choice between plain 'white' LEDs which, as CD points out, are more 'blue' than white. I couldn't stand the light they gave off and just stuck with the 'warm' ones. I know the plain 'white' (blue) ones are more energy efficient, but we're talking milliamps here. FYI, I don't think I paid more than US$20.00 per bulb, and I managed to use all my old fixtures.
