It's the best LED replacement for a Halogen lamp I have used yet and I have tried 4 different bulbs for this same lamp. It is the brightest but still not as bright as I had hoped it would be and not even close to the original halogen bulb. But it is still the best I have tried so far over the past 5 years. I am still very happy with this bulb even though it is not as bright as I expected. Definitely brighter than the previous.
