Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by raydoc Great color rendition
I just replaced 500 watts of lighting with 80 watts and still have the same or better lumen output. The color rendering is much better. My walls are the color that we remembered them to be, not colored by the halogen bulbs. I hope to avoid having to go into these ceiling fixtures to change bulbs for a long, long time.
The photo shows the LED bulb on the right and the hold halogen on the left. Much fresher, better color from the LED.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Action Good LED Bulb
The color and out put of these bulbs are as advertised. I'm using them in a 6 bulb track light in the kitchen. They have a nice bright white light. The only reason I'm not giving them a full 5 start is the 1 of the 6 failed at the 1 year mark. At approx $30 a piece, I was a little disappointed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PaulM Bad batch?
I bought two of these just over one month ago and they both died within a week of each other.
They seemed very solidly built and they are really bright. Much colder color temperature that the unknown-incandescent they replaced. Since I swapped the old bulbs back in I realized how different they really were. After the initial color change shock I really liked it.
The fixtures I had were DC, but there was a slight flicker when on.
I'm not going to rate these horrible because bad batches happen. I'll bring them back and see what HD can do for me. If I pick up another set and THEY die in a month then I won't feel bad giving a "1" rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techguy Just as bright as a halogen!
I bought one of these in the store and was a little skeptical if this could compete in brightness with the halogen. To my surprise it did and I am back to buy some more. I have RP, a progressive eye disease and need good lighting. The package indicates "bright white" and the back has a graph at 3000K. These are a bright white, probably 5000K which I prefer anyway. This is also dimmable so can be used in most location. These are a little pricey, however about average for competitors and cheaper in packs of 4. I don't usually take the time to do these reviews but give an A+ where one is deserved, time will tell on longevity.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RAS1 This model bulb generates excessive radio interference
A neighbor installed 9 of this model in their kitchen. They generated excessive electronic radio emissions far above FCC part 15 and 18 standards, creating interference in the 108 to 135 MHz aircraft band, 144-148 MHz licensed amateur radio band and into the 148 to 174 MHz Public Safety spectrum. Removal of the LED bulbs and replacement with the halogen bulbs previously used cleared the interference. The neighbor was very cooperative once notified of the problem. The responsibility for the cure is with the generator of the interference. Failure to rectify can result in very stiff fines by the FCC. These bulbs were tested by ETL similar to UL but carry no FCC approval.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lasertee Best MR16 LED i have tried yet!
This is approx the 15th different MR16 Led i have tried over the past 3 years.
It shines as bright as a new 50 watt mr16 halogen!.
The color is just slightly ( i mean slightly) whiter than a halogen,it is only noticable if you have both bulb types side by side.
Runs very cool, no noise from 3 feet away.
I cant stress how much i recommend this led !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave great led light finally
Great light color. Its white, not some sickesh hue of blue or gray or yellow. Just pure white light. Its pretty bright also definitely at least equivalent to my halogens of 50 watt. I did have to bend so slightly the prongs to make a tighter connectuion .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GregB Flickers on dimmer
I put this is a bedroom headboard fixture that had two independent lamps with dimmers. The Philips 10-watt LED would successfully dim. But this bulb flickered at the lowest setting. It may be that it is an AC transformer. Beware if you're fixture isn't DC.
The light output and color were fine.
