Decent cool white bulb – MR16 6500K 5.5W 360-Lumen 30x5050 SMD LED White Light Bulb (12V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
A good kind of cool white, not irritatingly blue as some other lights.
Good price per lumen.
Cons:
DC only (no rectifier inside). Very dim and/or flickering on AC.
Glass body (potentially brittle).
Other:
Equivalent to (or slightly exceeds) a 20W halogen, but the light is spread over ~110° (very wide) - good for recessed ceiling lights but not for spot fixtures.
Bottomline:
Use it if you have DC power supply in your system, or fit a rectifier after the transformer. The bulb is polarized - if it doesn't work, plug it the other way.
