Just as bright as 35W halogens, but only use 5W.
Nice color -- a little whiter than halogen, but not too white (the color seems to be a little whiter than the DX photo).
Has a diffuser.
Cheap compared to bulbs available here in Japan.
Reasonable build quality.
Much longer than a standard GU10 reflector bulb -- if you have a recessed fitting, they may stick out.
Get quite hot.
The plastic base and aluminium part screw together, so be careful taking them out of the socket -- they can come apart.
I've been wanting to replace my halogens with LEDs for a long time, but all I could find in Japan were useless 3W bulbs. Finally I've found a bulb that can replace the halogens.
For me, these bulbs will take about a year to pay for themselves in electricity savings.
Very satisfied. The bulbs are bright, have a good colour and aren't too expensive. I'll definitely be buying more.
