I ordered six lights. They were shipped in a bubble-wrap manila envelope. The envelope was torn open when it arrived and the contents were held in by a rubber band. All the contents I ordered arrived.
I was disappointed with the quality of the product, although considering these are the cheapest lights on the market, they are also the cheapest construction too.
One light has already started to flicker. Not all of them, just about 9 of the LEDs out of the 36. If that doesn't improve, I may have to remove that light and break out the soldering iron to see if I can resolve this issue.
I believe the light output is most certainly less than that of their incandescent replacements. I would guess somewhere in the 50-70% range of the original. Also, they are a very cool white color. That means they are VERY white. That is not a very complementary color to the ladies' complexion, so you can imagine what my better half thinks.
Presently, I am I am not considering buying more of these lights from farmerseller. Instead, I will look for options that are closer to a cool-white color, and have more than 36 LEDs.
All-in-all the concept is correct and any price under $15 for an alternative with more than 36 LEDs would be worth looking into my book.
