The TerraLux Decorative LED is a 4-watt replacement flood for the golfball-sized 20-watt MR16 halogen. The typical LED doesn’t look as nice in a pendant fixture as a conventional halogen bulb, mostly because it doesn’t cast the same sort of multidirectional glow; but the designers of the TerraLux have addressed this problem by putting small LED light sources on fins at the side of the bulb. Light output and temperature are equivalent to the MR16, according to the company. Cost is $30 per bulb.
