Do these LED Tails look right?

I just installed these today and am not sure about the brightness and visibility. During the day you can hardly see the leds light up. At night it's better, but looking at all the other pics on here, mine don't look as bright as theirs. What do you guys think? This is where I purchased the tails.

The first 2 pics are with headlights on no brakes, the last two pics are with brakes. I know it's hard to tell looking at pics, but they should be brighter right?

Those are terrible. I think you got lemons or maybe just bad quality leds. I would be careful with those. Are those even red leds?

Don't worry, I wont try to sell these! I am going to return them tomorrow before I get rear ended. So if your looking to get some LED tails, don't buy from these guys on ebay. Terrible.

I feel like an idiot. I thought a regular bulb was supposed to go where the brake light is. So I put my old bulb in there. My mistake. I took the standard bulb out and it looks right now. So disregard the last post, the lights are good, the people on ebay are safe to buy from.
