Best halogen replacement I found this far. – MR16 4-LED 360-Lumen 3500K Warm White Light Bulb (12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
- Color temperature quite good. Not bluish cold, but rather daylight white.
- Cold to the touch even when lit for hours.
- Spot width comparable with a 35W halogen.
- Nice back spill.
- Good power-saver.
Cons:
Build quality leaves something to be desired. The glue used for keeping the driver in it's place let go when I placed the bulb in it's socket. Luckily this is easily fixed by a hot glue gun.
Other:
Some transformers need a minimum load. I tried it in a single spot fixture, but it would not light up. In an other two bulb fixture it work flawlessly.
Bottomline:
if you're thinking about replacing 35 watt halogens and don't mind the slight color difference than this is a good candidate.
