Exterior LED Spot Lights

IDK, this is the second outdoor incandescent spot light where the glass lens simply fell off!

Granted these are probably 12 years old but it looks like they are glued in place.

Anyway, no more extra bulbs so going to try some LED spots. Anybody have any recommendations, prices seem to be all over the place!

I've seen that happen with halogen bulbs, where the lamp is completely sealed inside, and the PAR portion is just the reflector and some plastic/glass.

For LEDs, I'd recommend going with a known brand, Phillips, Cree, etc. The manufacturers you've never heard of before are typically the worst in terms of reliability. Though all manufacturers seem to be going for lowest-cost these days unfortunately.
