GU10 LED lights


With all the talk of LEDs I'm always on the lookout with different (and easy) ways to get things going. In my research I have found another option. These lights can use a screw in base like a regular light bulb or a T5 style twist in.

Each bulb has 3 1w LEDs that can be in different colors.

Best of all? No extra power supplies! These things can be run in series and plugged right into the wall. Down side: no dimming.

Price is between 5-8 each bulb. Each bulb is about 2" in diameter. You would set it up just like a row of hanging lights.

Down side? Looks like mostly these are 30 degree optics... pretty focused lights.

Has anyone else seen anything about these? I can't afford to change my lighting right now but this is promising for a cheaper LED solution in the future.
