Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tsymyn First of the really acceptable LED bulbs
These are the fourth kind of LED GU10 equivalent bulbs we've tried, and the first we've stuck with. The color is very close to a normal halogen. We switched from Reveal halogen bulbs to these. The color is not as warm, but it's completely acceptable. They truly are instant on (most of the competitors are not) and are probably really closer in brightness to a 50W GU10 than the 20W they claim to replace. We don't notice the room being dim at all with these. And the real plus is that they've lowered the power usage of our eight-light track from 400W to 48W, with a comparable reduction in heat, which is alone worth the price as many days in a row as it's been over 100 here. We're very satisfied and haven't hesitated to try this brand for other bulbs, too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ingram1225 Very Bright!
It is true, they are brighter than my 50w halogen lights. For my fixture, it would have been nice if there was just one led light facing backwards but it's a non factor. As you can see in the picture, the LED light is on the right, and casts a cleaner brighter light than the halogen lamp. Truly impressive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EUPHOR1C Surprised at the brightness!
The only negative I can come up with about this bulb is the cost, but if these things last as long as claimed then it is well worth it. Let alone the pain it can sometimes be removing GU10 bulbs. I am really surprised at the amount of light these things put out. When compared to the stock halogens that came with my fixture these are SIGNIFICANTLY brighter. It is night and day when comparing the brightness of these. I also love that they are not white fluorescent in color. Still gives off the color that a halogen would.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lion Great for lighting art work
Fits the fixtures better than the incandescent lamps with a white light instead of the yellowish and remains cool

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IGfoobar Bright but noisy.
I installed four of these bulbs in a track light fixture in my kitchen. The light output is very bright but not as "warm" as a halogen. Unfortunately there is an audible hum from these bulbs. It is not terribly loud but it is there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by InTheDark Good LED for GU10 sockets
The only drawback to this LED is the lack of a diffuser.
The light is very bright and hard on the eyes if looked
at directly. Also note that the color temperature is
hotter than the old incandescent lights, with a yellowish
cast rather than the somewhat cooler orange glow we've all
known for years.
But it provides plenty of light with just 6 watts, so works
fine in ceiling tracks/sockets, or for indirect lighting. Given
its expected lifetime, I'd recommend this for any situation
where it could be used if glare is not a problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDfrequentshopper Nice color light bulbs
Light bulbs are nice, clear, bright without that yellowish or purplish hue you get with some.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP56 Perfect for my purposes
I purchased one of these to try in a stove hood with a fan & lights, where the regular appliance type bulbs were constantly burning out. Only purchased one because I was not sure if it would fit into the unit because of very close tolerances inside it (the regular bulbs barely fit). It had about the same amount of clearance for installing/removing as the regular bulbs. Works & looks great. Must get another one now.
