Pretty Cool LED spot bulbs
on 28 September 2011
Ordered 3 of these to test as replacements for my 7 watt Megaman CFLs, most of which I bought about 5 years ago and are starting to fail. First impressions are very good: they are nice and bright, about the same as the Megamans, but being cool white instead of warm they appear brighter. There are 2 BIG plus points: 1, they come on immediately, which is wonderful when you have got used to CFLs taking up to a minute to get reasonably bright; and 2, they are cheaper! Even if they last only half the claimed lifespan, they will surely be a bargain. Another bonus is the operating temperature. Even after a couple of hours running you can hold the glass at the front for about 3 seconds before your hand gets too hot. With the CFLs this takes less than a second, they run much hotter. So clearly less energy wasted. Recommended.
