Roccat Siru Desk Fitting Gaming Mousepad - Pitch B&hellip by Roccat
Great for a few weeks then it curled up. I had to resort to sticking it down with double sided tape then the curl became so powerful that it tore itself away from the tape! It's impossible to use a mouse mat that's curled, the mouse bounces on it resulting in the recorded click being some distance away from where you actually started pressing the button. Being hard plastic, it's also impossible to get the curl out of the thing. I replaced it with a nice soft woven mat.
Eterna D130 - 28W 2D Slim Profile Low Energy Fitti&hellip by Eterna
A nice looking unit but has a relatively short life. It's fine when first bought but the light rapidly grows dimmer and dimmer and the unit takes longer and longer to reach even that poor light level until you're forced to replace the bulb. They rarely last more than a few months, albeit with use nearly every night.

The biggest problem though is that the unit gets hot, very hot. The heat generated by the electronics inside the lamp housing has nowhere to go and the plastic bits get brittle as a result. After a while it becomes impossible to replace the bulb without breaking the mounting, then a complete new light fitting is required.
4 x R63 LED 7w E27 Replacment for Reflector R63 LE&hellip by Long Life Lamp Company
A direct replacement for R63 incandescent bulbs though these are slightly longer and protrude from the light fitting by a few millimetres. They don't work with 'old style' dimmers.

They're incredibly bright. They're supposed to be equivalent to 60W incandescent bulbs but they look far brighter than that to me. They're also a very white light. The specs say they're a warm white but they're a lot whiter (e.g. more blue) than incandescent bulbs. Personally, I quite like the look.

I haven't had them long so can't comment on reliability. They all worked when fitted so if they last a decent amount of time I'll be very happy with my purchase.
