    Well, just took delivery of a Soraa Vivid 5000K GU10 7.5W led bulb.  It’s claim to fame is 95-6 CRI based on gallium nitride diodes which apparently do better in the violet or something.  It’s $25 (plus shipping) !  Anyway, put it in a gooseneck clamp lamp I have, and wow a lot of light (I bought the 10° spot) that really helps painting details.  And 7.5 watts replacing the 35 watts of the halogen.  Nice!

    They’re over 20 quid, and that’s trade.

    I misremembered the price a bit – it’s closer to $28 which is very close to 20 quid…  (Need to order some stuff from Britain it seems! )

    Both actually.  The really nice thing about it, is that at 7.5 watts, it runs a little hotter than ordinary LEDs, but it is still very cool and I can crane it right over my work and blast it with light.  Good for my aging eyes.
