Good replacement for 20W Halogen – MR16 4-LED 360-Lumen 3500K Warm White Light Bulb (12V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Same warm white color as 20W halogen, uses 1/4 the power, doesn't get as hot, great price.
Cons:
Sticks out about 1/3 inch more than the halogen bulb it replaces. In the mini-hoods on my track lights, this is slightly less attractive.
Other:
I ordered the 3-LED model (SKU =33776 ) prior to this. That one was fine but not quite as bright as a 20W halogen. This model is the winner, with enough light and the same warm white color. Previously I ordered other models with the 6500K color without knowing about the color difference. Check the color rating unless you're prepared to have a blue-white 6500K color that will clash in a string of halogens. Or perhaps you like the techno-modern look of 6500k. Now I want one that has 8-10x LEDs and can replace 35W and 50W halogens.
Bottomline:
This is a no-brainer, can't lose deal. Swap out all your 20W MR-16s with this model. Same color, same light, less heat, 1/4 the power usage. Your power meter will thank you.
