pretty good lamp – MR16 4W 3500K 360-Lumen 4-LED Warm White Light Blub (12V) Reviews

Pros:
Good colour - fairly similar to halogens
Cons:
Needs to be more power! Better light output would be nice but remember that 4W may present a problem to your electronic transformer.
Slighter larger that a standard halogen; a little fiddly to fit into a standard enclosure.
Other:
Most electronic transformers need a minimum current to start up, so you can't use a normal tranny with just one of these. I have put 4 of these in parallel (16W) and it works, but there is a little flicker (but my transformer specifies a minimum load of 20VA, so it's not unexpected)
Bottomline:
Don't expect you can just replace your halogens with this one, but once you overcome the transformer issue, this LED globe is pretty good. Can't wait for the technology to progress so we get even brighter ones!
