Delivery is too expensive
it depends really. If u buy 1 bulb £7,5 for delivery is expensive but
if you buy 10 bulbs £3,52 each +£7,5 delivery that makes 1 bulb cost £4,27 wich is the cheapest out there.
appreciate the effort but around 100 pound spend ( 29 bulbs)for free delivery is excessive
^dimmable LEDs are a minefield, I bought Phillips dimmable 6.5w bulbs, bought two dimmer switches suitable for LEDs and they still wouldn't work. After some more research I discovered that the type of dimmer switches I bought didn't work with all types of dimmable bulbs. Gave up and fitted a normal light switch - turned out ok as they're warm white bulbs and it's gorgeous kitchen downlighters, so never really felt a need to dim them.

The dimmer switches were the Siemens lightwave type dimmer switches.

P.s. The Phillips 6.5 w bulbs were just under £10 each from an electrical wholesaler

I have a question for those more techy than myself please. I have dimmable GU10 50w Halogen downlights running straight from 240v. Can I just swap in the LED spot posted (noted I may want 5-6w LEDs to be a 50w Halogen replacement)? I.e. Do all LED GU10 fittings have transformers built in to each bulb so I can just swap in to the 240v fittings with no extra work or do I need a separate transformer. Any advice greatly welcome!

yes - BUT not all are dimmable, in fact very few are dimmable. The phillips one for 25 quid is dimmable mind you!
You will need to remove the dimmer control most likely (you might get away with having it on "full"). If you try to dim ones that don't support dimming, I am not sure what will happen but my guess is a) flicker or b) self destruct after a few days.
I've had the reon ones off amazon recently and have been very impressed with them, about a fiver each I think.
I also have a phillips 4w one, they cost about 25 quid EACH but you can see why - they actually look like halogen, same colour, same light spread.
I also believe they will come down yet more, theres no real reason why the high price long term, they should be cheaper to manufacture than the older energy saving CFL bulbs AFAIK.
