First impressions: Delay before it turns on, and too dim to really match 45W as it states.

There is a 1/2 sec delay between flipping the switch and light.

The package says that it is equivalent to a 45W halogen, and that it emits 350 lumens; this seems contradictory. A 35W GE Halogen PAR16 I found is rated at 360 lumens, so this is probably closer to a 35W equivalent.

I used to be a bit more forgiving of LEDs when they were in their infancy, but by now we should at least have accurate labeling; if you are hoping to replace a 50W halogen with this you might be disappointed.

Also, major demerits for an energy-efficient product wrapped in 3 layers of non-recyclable plastic.

We're slowly moving over to LED bulbs and have a few PAR16 fixtures for which I'm using this bulb.

All I can say is that it's okay. The warmth of the light and color rendition are great, but it doesn't seem as bright as the halogen equivalent, and the beam width is noticeably narrower. There's also a small delay when you turn it on, some fraction of a second, not as bad as the delay with our CFLs.

In short, this is an okay replacement for a PAR16 halogen. I'll keep buying them. I haven't found anything that looks likely to be better, especially in color rendition. Just be aware that it won't look exactly like a halogen bulb.

I've had this baby installed for about a month now and so far so good. This is the first time I've tried out an LED and was skeptical because of the price. I installed this on some track lights alongside a bunch of existing halogen spotlights. It emits an arc of light that is about equivalent to the halogen bulbs in the others. It comes on right away and dims as expected. It is slightly brighter than I anticipated based on the wattage and rated lumens, but since it's hooked up to a dimmer it gives you flexibility. I am going to replace the rest of my halogens with these bad boys as they run out. I am a satisfied customer.

It's hard to find an LED PAR16 light, and this is one and it works. This bulb is rated at 3000K, and I suspect that the copy I got was even a bit cooler than that. It is fine if you don't mind a cooler color temperature than incandescent or 2700K LEDs. I tried to match it with 2700K LED replacement lights, and these were too blue.

Ordered 14 of these for an outdoor pavilion. Illuminates the area very well, even from very high up. They were a good price for the lumens (brightness). Many times the lumens are just too low, and the light isn't sufficient to light the area. Vendor was fine, and lights arrived in good condition. No problems.

Little or no heat produced. Used this bulb in ceiling spot that was always burning out due to lack of ventilation.

This is an ideal light source. Electric in the Bahamas is 55 cent a Kw and it pays for itself in a year. A very pleasing light source.

These are my first LED lights and they are just as bright and consume less energy and emit less heat and stay cool, not like the old halogen lights I used to have.
I am happy with the purchase!

I'm using two of these in 4-inch recessed housings in the ceiling, with gimbals to point them at the wall. With bright good temperature light output, these LEDs perform great. These perform much better than the standard PAR16 bulbs I was using before. I haven't used a dimmable switch on them yet, and have not compared them to halogen.

Switched to these for our kitchen showroom about a year ago. Work great and the color value is perfect for the displays. I use them in the Halo 4" mini eyeball fixture.
