I replaced my workshop lights this past weekend with the LED bulbs also.  They weren't cheap and for the price I don't think it was worth it.  They weren't that much brighter or whiter compared to a good bulb after a few minutes of warmup.  They were Instant on though.   

Which brand lights did you use?   I know you get what you pay for.  

I paid about $25 a bulb with tax at Home Depot.  So 50 bucks a fixture isn't cheap just for bulbs.
