Par lamps have been around for years now and are perfect for outdoor use. They are instant strike and warm in colour. The draw back is they are not very energy efficient.
The future is looking dim, for PAR lamps of all shapes and sizes.
There are compact fluorescent replacements available but they are slow to strike up and are not fully dimmable. The next best and future proofed option is a LED par lamp replacement although prices for these are still quite high, but as demand grows and production methods improve the price will come down. LED par lamps will also have a choice of beam angle, colour and be dimmable.
