Considering the minimal energy consumption, this is an impressive little bulb. The light is bright and quite warm. The main differences between this bulb and the halogen bulbs it's designed to replace are:
1. It's a little longer, so I suggest you check carefully whether it will fit the shade or unit for which it's intended.
2. Its light is much more directional, as other reviewers have pointed out. Despite the opalescent diffuser cap, this LED bulb functions more like a tiny torch than a conventional incandescent bulb with a filament that spreads light all around it. That's why LEDs are great for things like traffic lights and brake lights, where a fairly narrow beam is an advantage, but the technology needs to evolve some more if they're going to conquer the world of domestic interior lighting.
