Samsung LED

Anyone try these yet? I was impressed during my stopover last year at Incheon airport in South Korea. If we don't overhaul our current public education system, the US is doomed.

Here's their specs for the SAMSUNG MR-16 Retro:

Power

230 Lumens Light Output
Rated Voltage: 120V
Power Consumption: 3.8W
Equivalent to a 20W Halogen

Features

Indoor or enclosed outdoor use only
Rated life of 40,000 hours / 20x longer than a Halogen MR16
230 Lumens
Warm White Color - 2,700K
25° Beam Angle
Energy Efficiency: up to 80% more efficient
Instant On
No Mercury
5 Years Warranty

I won't mention the list price, but they can be bought direct from SAMSUNG's website.

230 Lumens Light Output - This is on the lower limit of equivalent to most 20W Halogen MR16s.

Rated Voltage: 120V Do you mean 12V? What is the input voltage range?

Power Consumption: 3.8W

Equivalent to a 20W Halogen (Do they not publish photometric data? They should. Taking this as 'true' can get you into trouble fast.

Features

Indoor or enclosed outdoor use only - RED Flag... Not moisture proof.


Rated life of 40,000 hours / 20x longer than a Halogen MR16 Rated how? Is this an L70 number based on LM80 testing protocol?
230 Lumens
Warm White Color - 2,700K Only one colour temperature available = poor selection. What is their avg acceptable variance in CCT between lamps or batches?

25° Beam Angle Only one beam spread available = poor selection.

Energy Efficiency: up to 80% more efficient Like every other LED lamp.


Instant On Obviously.
No Mercury
5 Years Warranty

I won't mention the list price, but they can be bought direct from SAMSUNG's website.
Mike, stick with the market leaders in landscape lighting LED lamps. They offer more options, more features, and excellent performance.

Sherman! Great to see you here.

MR16 (GU10) LED Bulb (20W)

It's the only MR 16 on their site.

It's interesting seeing them come out with this.

They also have three PARS for line voltage.

Or you could ignore the collective advice of so many, and start experimenting with product that was not designed for the application in which you are going to use it.... Just sayin'...

Here is the Samsung usage guide. This is typical for LED lamps.
Do not use in enclosed luminaires and indoor use only.

http://www.samsung.com/global/busine...6-Cautions.pdf

What makes a LED lamp approved for enclosed fixture and/or outdoor usage?
They look similar right...
