Philips LED 3.5W Capsule 046677418397 Soft White 3.5W (20W) T3 Wedge Capsule
Amazing power per volume unit
Be aware, these little LED will provide you with real light!
I gave them installed for now more than a year in fixtures on my stairs above each step, they are lit every night for hours. No failure, and the energy consumption is very very low. Great product as many Philips LEDs.

Works well in off the grid system.
Tried a couple of these in a solar-charged 12 volt system at a camp with no A/C power. Beam angle is wide, making them useful in small bedrooms, over tables, etc. and the color is pleasant - comes across as a bit on the yellow side but very acceptable and much nicer than older more bluish LEDs. They are a very nice alternative to propane lighting in the summer, and have very little heat output which is a huge plus on hot nights. My brother retrofitted an older pedestal style 12 volt LED lamp - this product has a much higher output and a more pleasant color. I realize this is an atypical use, but they are working so well I have purchased several more to add to the system. It would be nice to see more products aimed at 12 volt off the grid lighting needs.

Beautiful light output
I used these to replace 10w halogen bulbs in under-cabinet lighting. The amount of light put out is equivalent to the 20w bulbs (which I knew by the packaging). These do not produce much heat when they run - which is one thing I noticed immediately. When used in a kitchen, 20w halo bulbs produce a significant amount of heat under a cabinet (which is enough to melt chocolate). There is no problem with these.
The shape of the bulb could be a problem with your under cabinet lights, but they fit easily (glass, reflector and all) into the cheap set I bought from the "german store that sells cheap furniture and household goods in a large chain store" a few years back (I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with "I be uh").

Great quality light for low cost and low heat output
I have installed three of these in the Tizio Italian light fixtures, two in the 50W and one in the 35W size of those. One has to do a little bending of the pins.... out and then straighten them to be parallel. The ceramic base for the pins allow this, and the metal pins are strong but will accept bending. You end up with a fantastic bulb in a great fixture. The 2700K light is excelleent, and the brightness actually seems to be about a 35W halogen equivalent without all the heat.
The Tizio fixture has a "flat" orientation of the pin sockets to the lit surface below, which is what you need for these bulbs, and these fit perfectly behind the thin glass shield. I finally felt safe having a Tizio in our son's bedroom. My advice to Philips is to make these with thicker wider spaced pins, but what I have done is working perfectly, for months now. Hi/low switch: not hardly any difference. Really cheap for the quality.

Need better info.
The Specifications tab should give us a light output in lumens number. This appears to be a replacement for a 20W halogen.
Is it bright enough ?

Wow! Ingenuity at it's best
I replaced 1 20 watt halogen puck type undercounter light with this product to observe how it compared to the remaining 5 lights. I did have to remove the reflector and leave off the glass lens as these bulbs are larger than a 20w halogen bulb. That being said 1 week later I replaced the remaining 5 halo's with the Philips LED's. I then replaced a desklamp 50 watt halogen bulb with one of the AccentLED bulbs. No obtrusive heat as with any halogen bulb and the electrical consumption is ridiculously low (6X20 watts vs 6X3 watts) At last, thanks Philips for a nice product! Can you do more?
