Interesting. Keep us posted on how this goes. I have been converting our lights over from incandescent and CFL to LED's. I've installed several of the same Utilitech bulbs in household fixtures which had 60w incandescent bulbs. In particular, four in two ceiling fixtures in our upstairs bedroom. I never mentioned it to my wife, and the next day she asked, "is it just my imagination, or are the bedroom light brighter?" They were, but hardly a scientific evaluation plus the incandescent bulbs were fairly old, so I expect they had lost some "shine." LED bulbs have improved quite a bit in the past few years and the prices are finally coming down out of the stratosphere.
