Energy saving at a reasonable price,
This review is from: Philips CorePro LED 4 Watt GU10 Energy Saving Bulb, 4 Pack (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
LED lighting really seems to be the way forwards and these bulbs fit the bill.
At 4 watts each, they claim to be produce the same light as a 35 watt halogen spot and, based on fitting them in my kitchen, I would tend to agree (although I haven't specifically checked with a light meter).
The light is pretty directional (i.e. it is a true spot and not a flood like the CFL bulbs are) and the light is a nice and warm.
Also, when compared to CFLs, these light immediately and remain cool to the touch.
A few years ago, these were very pricey items, but now I consider them to be very good value, especially if you are using in an environment where you have lighting on for long periods (such as our kitchen which can be a bit dark with the lights off). They should pay for themselves very quickly.
