Hi, All,

I think some other folks mentioned this company...but it bears repeating.

I have been quite happy with the numerous 12V and 15V LED ceiling bulbs I have been buying from the folks below. Each time a halogen bulb burns out (every three months), I replace it with the LEDs...and no burn-outs yet.

For me, the added cost is well worth the reduced frustration of ladder climbs to replace halogens. (..and no, I am not in cahoots with the company.)

Thanks!

Robt.

Myself, I prefer M4 Products' leds. They put out more lumens and are cheaper. I have replaced all the interior except the closet and most of the exterior including taillights with their bulbs and been well satisfied with their bulbs and service.

Anyone considering upgrading to LED's should go to the M4 site and read all their information, FAQ's, and LED facts. Even if you don't by from them the information is very useful.

Here is what I ordered from M4.
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><t><tr><td style="padding:5px;font-size:12px;border-bottom:solid 1px #cacaca">G4 / T3 Retrofit LED Light in Warm White with Side Pins
Replaces 10w Halogen






<table style="font-family:Arial;font-size:11px"></table>

</td>
<td style="padding:5px;font-size:12px;border-bottom:solid 1px #cacaca" width="100">G4-12-5050-TYPE1-WW</td>
<td style="padding:5px;font-size:12px;border-bottom:solid 1px #cacaca" width="100">2</td>
<td style="padding:5px;font-size:12px;border-bottom:solid 1px #cacaca" width="150">$7.99 USD</td></tr></t></table>
These are the smaller ones, but fit perfectly and provide more than enough light.

No difference that I could tell between the halogens in there and the LEDs. No medical looking light.

Hi, All,

FYI...here are the two items I purchased (with links), to replace the small (12) and large (15) ceiling bulbs. These are brighter than the halogens and look to me to be the same color temperature asthe halogens (i.e., warm, not fluorescent blue). Also, when shipping multiple items, they refunded the extra shipping charges.


G4 12 LED (Halogen)
G4 10-30v DC 2.3w 12 LED SMD5050

180 Lumens Warm White
Item number G4 12 S
USD 11.95

G4 15 LED (Halogen)
G4 10-30v DC 2.5w 15 LED SMD5050

225 Lumens Warm White
Item number G4 15 S
USD 12.95

FINALLY - someone puts the links in instead of us having to look through 20 similar items to guess which ones will fit Thanks Mr Toad !!!

Now, for those of you that bought the M4 lights, really appreciate it if you could narrow it down to which ones are the correct replacements from the 20 or so choices they offer
the 10W:
1)
http://www.m4products.com/g4-t3-retr...s-10w-halogen/
or 2)
http://www.m4products.com/g4-t3-retr...s-10w-halogen/
or 3)
http://www.m4products.com/micro-g4-t...s-10w-halogen/
or 4)
http://www.m4products.com/micro-g4-t...s-10w-halogen/

or the 20w:
A)
http://www.m4products.com/large-g4-t3-retrofit-led-light-cool-bright-white-with-rear-pins-replaces-20w-halogen/
or B)
http://www.m4products.com/large-g4-t...s-20w-halogen/

or
???????????
http://www.m4products.com/cool-brigh...se-10-30-volt/

the large, or the micro, or the cool white, or the warm white or the ?!?!

feel like a mosquito cor-n-fuzed by the light !!!
