I tried out some Ikea LED candle bulbs today, wondering if 90 lumens would be enough:-
I thought I was impressed. 90 lumens turned out to be a little bit on the dim side, but they look quite reasonable in the fittings, which were intended for halogen candles. The light comes out in about the right places IYSWIM, The colour is fine and they're cheap.
Then came the realization. The sodding things strobe really badly. Now I've noticed it, I can't get away from it. Anything that moves in the room turns into bloody set of freeze-frames, as does the whole room every time you move your eyes!
Is this a common thing with cheap LED bulbs? I'm all worried about the impending Ebay purchase of Chinese replacements now. The only other LED bulbs I've got are two brands of GU10 and they're fine, so maybe it's just Ikea ones that are crap...
