A bright, warm LED that will be usefull in some applications.

Pros: A warm, bright LED based bulb that only uses 9.5 watts!

Cons: Warm tone has a very slight green tint to it... bulb failed in under 5 months.

This is basically a Par38 (Fits R40 as well) style bulb that uses 165 LEDs inside instead of an incandescent, halogen, or CFL source. It actually looks "pretty" when off as the LEDs are just below the lense giving it a cut crystal look... which is getting off-track, but some people might think that's cool.Anyway - it is a 100-watt-equivalent bulb that only uses 9.5 watts.

LEDs have a way to go

Pros: use very little electricity

Cons: give spot light, but not flood light - very expensive

I bit the bullet and bought this LED for my art table, because I have it on all day.  The bulb cost a FORTUNE, but I was doing it to save on electricity, and not get compact fluorescent bulbs - because they have mercury in them.  (I know they don't have a lot - but there are million of people who are  now buying them, and NOT disposing of them properly - so we exchange one problem for another!).   Anyway, this bulb doesn't give me enough light to do my artwork, and I ended up having to get a full spectrum fluorescent bulb anyway - but I know how to dispose of it!  Just don't be around it if it breaks!
