Toshiba E-Core LED Fixture

Toshiba has introduced a 265 lumen output potlight (comparable to the output of a 40 watt incandescent) that gets 50 lumens per watt and uses only 5.3 watts of power. It looks good, has good colour balance and costs under two hundred bucks, which is great for a built-in fixture with a projected 40,000 hour lifespan. It is designed at 3" in diameter so that it can retrofit into traditional potlight holes. Available in Japan this summer.
