The human eye is also affected by the color of the light ,so though lumens are a factor they are not the only factor . I have the 320 lumen LED lamps in the exterior lights of my trailer and they seem extremely bright but the color is a harsh white similar to a halogen headlight on a vehicle

These are warm, but less so then the incandescents.

Probable not your converter David.
With LED's the more luminous is better. I know a number of people who have gone with less than 300 luminous who have been disappointed as they felt the LED's were not as bright as they were expected. I have one LED that is about 280 (do not recall exactly what it was) and its noticeable less output than the other slightly higher luminous ones.
