Built-in Halogen High-voltage spotlights.

Hi,
Just wondering, what the benefits/downfalls of the high voltage oppose to low voltage spotlights. (apart from the obvious voltage).
Regards

Mains are cheaper to buy and there's no transformer to fit. In just about every other respect, they're inferior, such as efficiency, energy cost, relamping cost, beam control and availability of different beam angles, size and range of fittings, etc...

At really higher wattages (whatever gets you 5 to 10 amps on your mains voltage, 1200 or 2400 watts) it probably is no better to go low voltage.
Not something you need at home.
