Good General Purpose Light – GU5.3 3.5W 3500K 240-Lumen 60-LED Warm White Light Bulb (DC 12V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Nice warm light. Good spread from standard height ceiling (7' stud). Lumens Out/Watt DC input is comparable to high intensity LED units. simple construction, no switching converters to worry about. Easily dimmable.
Cons:
All LED's mounted on a single PC board which isn't held in to the aluminium shell by much, may pop out, but not a biggy, a little silicon sealant around the rim holds it in just fine.
Other:
Lamp is polarity dependant, wrong way around in socket = no go! Adding a small bridge rectifier behind the PCB will cure that if you're paranoid, plenty of room behind the board. Will overheat if you try to run on more than 12v
Bottomline:
Good product, well worth the price, will be buying more...
