DIMMABLE PERFORMANCE LED Bulbs use ocular lenses to harness the output of high power Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The light output is comparable to incandescent and halogen products and can be used for both distance and close-range directional light. What makes these special is that they achieve their brightness with up to 78% less energy than the bulbs they replace, and they last up to 30,000 hours. They are RoHS compliant and 100% mercury free. Additional benefits include no UV or infrared emissions, relatively cool running performance, ability to withstand vibration (no filament), no warm-up time or waiting to turn on and no detrimental effects from rapid cycling on and off. They can also be used in motion lights and photo cells.
Best LED lights I know of
Pros: These are simply the best MR16 LED I have found. I bought about 10 different brands of LED bulbs from various online sources as replacements to my halogen MR16s, all with claimed light output of 400+ lumens. Don't believe the ratings - none come even close to the brightness of the standard halogen bulbs. This bulb is the only exception, although it is only rated 300 lumens. The light is almost as bright as halogens.
Cons: Expensive, the light might be too cool for some. Also, the rim is raised quite a bit compared to standard halogens, so make sure your mounting bracket will accommodate it.

Pros: unknown, as, while the bulbs are advertised everywhere, the fixtures are never found offered.
Cons: again, the same as in "Pros", unknown, as, while the bulbs are advertised everywhere, the fixtures are never found offered.
Other Thoughts: I see all sorts of these 12 volt bulbs online and in stores often and I'd love to pick up on several different kinds and sizes, particularly, in my RV (I'm a retired full-timer RV'er) since earlier this year I opted for replacing the 6.5KW Onan GenSet (1.3/gal per hr) with all solar PV. The only problem is, while we see all sorts of these bulbs (and a very many of them look quite excellent) there are never any of the fixtures themselves advertised. Even the big name hardware stores rarely have anything to offer. So...there's a big open niche for you, New Egg, to fill; I'm sure there are others, as well as myself that would greatly appreciate it.
