Enlightened choice!Probably have 16+ of these bulbs in the house. Light is consistent at about 2700K (What is called "Warm White", or white with a slight yellowish tinge). Would have preferred 3000/3100K to match some of the other Ikea bulbs in use, but this is not bad. The light distribution is a little skewed, more is distributed over the top of the bulb than the side. You need a LED capable dimmer. With my old style dimmer, the lights blink on/off when not at 100%. Will be replacing it shortly.
I also have a few of the 400 lumen E12 candelabra bulbs, these are more than 2X expensive. They are obviously brighter but don't appear 2X brighter to the eye. Their color is similar, so you can mix the two. The white base of the 400 lumen ones is slightly bigger than the 200 lumen, say around 1/4" so there is a slight difference in size. They are also more sturdily built.
Can't say much about longevity, these have been running for around 3-6 months now. Can't beat the price, haven't seen Candelabra LED bulbs elsewhere close to this price.
Approximately equal to a 20-watt incandescent bulb. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/ryet-led-bulb-e-lumen__0457382_PE604837_S4.JPGRYET LED bulb E12 200 lumen, chandelier clearhttp://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80334151/803.341.51IKEA$3.99/ 2 pack
