Good, not great
on September 30, 2013
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.
