Good but very focused beam – E5-Lighting E27 4W 340lm 6000K White 4-LED Light Bulb - Silver (85~265V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Super cheap to operate Well manufactured Very cool white light
Cons:
Light beam is very focused. Not really good as a floodlight, this is definitely more of a spotlight.
Other:
I installed this light in a hallway fixture and it's doing a fine job where it is. In fact, it some ways it worked out perfectly because it is more of a spotlight. It shines right into a closet where I needed some light. Unfortunately, it doesn't 'spread' so there is less light on the floor in the hall where there was with the previous incandescent. This isn't really a fault with the bulb, it was probably designed as a spotlight and I purchased the wrong bulb.
Bottomline:
If you're looking for more of a spot and less of a flood, you can't go wrong. Haven't had it long enough to know what longevity is like. If it fails quickly, I'll try and remember to come back and update this.
