$35 is a lot of money for less than 500 lumens.
Just my $2.00 worth. <-- inflation, of course.
Lumens and lux are measurements that are appropriate for human eyes.
500 lumens may work really well in some situations. Add in energy savings and not having to replace the lamp every year or two, could easily make $35. a bargain.
Given my personal experience with LED lamps in our house, It's my opinion that current industry specs are not comparable or perhaps compatible with what "we" have used for incandescent and fluorescent lighting solutions.
