Better in every way... except initial cost!,

This review is from: Philips GU10 50 Watt MV Master LED Spot 6, 3000 K, Neutral Whte (Kitchen & Home)
I was uncertain about spending so much on bulbs, but decided to replace my 6 kitchen halogen spots with these. The first thing to note is that they are exact replacements when it comes to size. If the halogen fits, this will fit - unlike some cheaper LED GU10 bulbs I tried.
When taking them out of the packet you immediately notice the quality - these are precision crafted, robustly made and look attractive. Quality of light is superb. I went for the "Neutral White" shade. For a kitchen or bathroom they are perfect - an improvement on the yellowish halogens but not nearly as harsh as some of the "Pure White" LED alternatives. In terms of brightness, I would say they are slightly brighter than the 50w halogens they replaced. Beam spread is equivalent.
With an 85% electricity saving I should notice the difference in my bills. And since they should last 20 times as long as a halogen I won't have to worry about replacing them for at least a decade. There are cheaper LED GU10 bulbs out there. I know because I have a few of them. A bulb costing a third as much will probably do the job. But none of them match this bulb in terms of overall quality.
