Used these as a replacement for existing landscaping lights. So far I have used 5 bulbs. Going from 25W to 4W alone seemed to justify the extra expense. And the bulbs live up to the expectation when it comes to rumination. LED bulbs excel in landscaping use cases. Durability is a concern. I am 1 year and have had to replace 3 out of the 5 bulbs. In each case it appears that water made into the housing and the bulbs fail. As I am in Florida water and heavy rains are a given. Not giving up hope yet. But based on the failure rate I am experiencing I may look for an another manufacturer.
I replaced my landscape bulbs with these LED type. Same exact fit. I had 20 watt Par 36 incandescent bulbs and these are definitely brighter. 3000k is a good color temperature, less yellow than standard incandescent and not cold and blue. About the perfect representation of daylight.
Because they are multiple LED, I think the light spreads out more uniformly with these as opposed to incandescent.
The same light or more on 1/10th the power, I like that. Now, if they just achieve their rated life which will be a very long long time, that will be great.
Easy Replacement, Very Bright, Easy Installation
I was very hesitant to spend $30 on a light bulb, however moving from 36W to 4W and having the life be 4X my current solution was very attractive. It has been a couple months and all are still working. I was tired of replacing bulbs every year and it made good financial sense when you combine the energy savings with the cost avoidance of buying bulbs much less frequently.

Good light bulb. TBD whether I can say it’s “great” based on how long it lasts, but I like the color and output. I emailed Meridian asking if they had a warranty and never received a reply (assume no warranty). Also, I ordered a box from HD & one was broken; ordered another one & it never shipped.
