Bought some about 4months ago at the same price and so far so good.
I went for the cool white as I like a bright white.
The warm white is more of a yellowish white but does seem quite popular.
A matter of personal choice.
Great buy at the price just remember they are non dimmable.

Cool white, cold white, a matter of choice of course

I prefer cool white, but it does make rooms feel colder somehow.

Cheers guys got 2 packs of cool white . Had my LEDs in for 4 years and a few are starting to go on me . We have 56 in total in the house and 6 have gone up to now . But expecting more !!!!! Think the life of LEDs are 3-5 years

I wanted the cool white last time they was on here but my local store only had the warm white. I bought a pack anyway and was surprised to find they are more like bright white and not yellowish white at all. I bought these for the bathroom but they are too bright and bought the 3w ones instead which are perfect. The warm white 5w ones I bought will be perfect for my utility. Replaced the kitchen GU10's last year with led's but not at this price !

Had these before but quite a narrow beam angle. Swapped them for 60deg ones.
Suppose it depends where your putting them though.

Cool white is much closer to natural daylight.
All of my GU10s and some of the other bulbs are cool white LEDs.

Now the other people in the house are asking me to put cool white LEDs in their rooms.

3000K is quite a 'cool' warm white. 2700K is more normal for warm white.

How much better are the 60deg ones? also you got a link for any good ones? all I can find are 38s.

I made the mistake of buying a load of 38deg lamps because they were cheap and not looking into beam angles, some ive kept but most replaced with wider ones.

60-120 produce less of a intense spot effect and flood light more of the room.

Sometimes spot effect is good if your highlighting features or taking attention off walls but other times bright even light which covers full room is handy like kitchen.


I got mine in a deal from CPC about a year ago. Search for wide angle gu10 led. Probably wont be as cheap as these though.

Cool white basically means that there are more blue colours in the light spectrum. Ok for a kitchen. Not sure why someone would want a garrish white light in their bedroom

Do these just fit in your existing sockets ? Or do you need to replace the wiring ?

I was going to say I have the same problem with my car headlights so better swap it lol but then I saw your further post. Good explanation. I have a 3 spot lamp in my bathroom which I bought the toolstation warm white ones for and although they were too bright, even with warm white, there was no issue with beam angle in the bathroom. It is however a small room. Kitchen already has Ever Ready Cool white and they are quite spot light tbh. It doesn't matter too much as there are eight bulbs in there. The tool station ones would appear better and cheaper and certainly worth the money. I did try the Wickes warm white and took them back. Definitely not suitable for a kitchen.

Poundland ones last about five minutes and are about as bright as my goldfish

Standard size GU10

Personally, I don't like cool white - I've tried them before, but just couldn't get used to the ghostly blue light. Warm white just seems better for the home, although some bulbs I've bought are a bit too yellowish - especially ones from ASDA.

Im guessing your confusing low energy led with low voltage downlighting where a 12v transformer would be installed in ceiling.

These are 230v mains voltage and replace a standard halogen gu10.

I bought around 100 LED from CPC to replace my whole house.

Quiet some of them already failed.

I cannot recommend them personally.

I will go somewhere else to buy LED next time.

One of the first LED GU10's I bought has just failed. Only purchased maybe 6 months ago and it was an Ever Ready bulb sold by B & M. Not cheap either. Sometimes buying a "known" brand at a greater price isn't the best plan. Possibly one to avoid as when I bought them originally one of them didn't work straight out of the packet. Unless of course they are fake and made in someone's shack in the far east.

For anyone who is interested the Ever Ready were cool white 5W. I have eight spots in my kitchen. I replaced the dud one with one of the warm white purchased from Toolstation. No difference in colour temperature that I can see. As I said before the Toolstation warm white do not appear to have the yellow tinge associated with other warm white brand.
