Anyone out there look into LED bulbs for landscape lighting? A few years ago, I picked up a kit with LED fixtures for low voltage landscape lighting. But, these had this horrible blue tint and they did not put out that much light. More recently, soft white LED bulbs in bi-pin MR16 format have come onto the market, and I'm wondering if anyone has tried these out by replacing their existing halogen bulbs with these? They run on 12V AC or DC, so existing setups should be retrofittable.
We have about 35 fixtures with 20 and 50W bulbs in the back yard, and another 20 in the front yard. You add that up, and it's starting to get quite expensive. But, recently I found on Amazon these soft white MR16 LED fixtures that look pretty close to halogen bulbs. I'm going to try them out to see how they look overall. I've been thinking about converting over to LED for quite a while, but the big box stores sell MR16 bulbs at around $25 on up. I've recently found 6W soft white LED fixtures that claim they have equivalent output as a 50W halogen that are priced around $3.50 or so. I'll give it a try. Any thoughs?
