Very bright for money – MR16 3W 210-240LM High Power White 3-LED Bulb (12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
Very solidly built and sized accurately so that it perfectly replaced the halogen bulb in fitment. Aluminum body seems very strong, and does not heat up hardly at all in use. Light output is very strong. Same as halogen, and brighter than an older 18 LED bulb I also own. The 6000k color also very close to halogen, and warm enough to read by comfortably.
Cons:
No glass over the face. Box it was shipped in was flimsy and marked as 120v bulb. But it is for 12Vdc use. Took over 5 weeks to ship.
Other:
I am using this in my RV Trailer for reading lights, and it is more than enough that and as task lighting. Almost too bright for really close in fixture. I dont know how long the bulb will last over time, but am very happy with it so far.
Bottomline:
I am ordering 3 more today for the rest of the fixtures. These are much better than the older 18 led bulbs I have, and the color and build seems much nicer for use.
