Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RichS Rather dim, very tight focus, sharp dropoff
This light isn't as bright as the other MR16 35W halogens on the same light track. The light is concentrated in a narrow circle, and the brightness drops off very sharply outside of that circle - much more sharply than other halogens with the same beam spread (38 degrees).
I have transparent light fixtures, which get a lot of their light by reflecting the bulb's output out the sides of the fixture. In the case of this bulb, there's very little side light for the fixture to reflect, since all of the output is concentrated in the narrow circle. This might be fine for a spot application, but it makes my fixture look dark and doesn't help to spread light around the room.
If you're looking for a spot light, this might do the job. If you're looking for more ambient lighting, this isn't the one for you.

Highly recommend it to anyone who has one or two sets of track lights. Very easy to buy, fast shipping and good price.
