    I have spent a lot of time investigating, buying and testing, to replace about 100 globes in my house. The choice, for mr 16 comes down to 2, Phillips 10w master or Nichia 8w 3000k, both in 60 deg. The Nichia is the closest to a Halogen 50w that you will find. Also I have concluded, through testing that the Osram is the best all round driver ! It uses the least power to drive LEDs and Halogens ! Amazing ! So, in conclusion, Ledworkshop have it covered. I have nothing to do with this company, but am a Physicist/ Engineer, so my testing has been thorough. Hope this review helps others save electricity like I am.

    Swapped over the lights in my apartment to 8W Nichia bulbs from ledworkshop. Service was great and the bulbs are brighter than my halogens! Cheers.

    Got my nichia 8w 60d globes installed with the redback transformers and they are definitely within the league of a halogen replacement. Beam angle seems to be as wide or even wider than the 60d halogens they replaced. 3000k colour also looks very white compared to the halogens without looking blueish.
