There was a big square basket full to the brim down a side isle - probably more on shelf too but didn't check as I had already stocked up from the basket.
#3
Are these 12v or 240v? keep having to replace my 240v ones in the kitchen, could do with a basketful.

just bought some new ones yesterday :-(
Great price though.
#6
They are 240v
#7
Picked up loads of these from 2 stores in Coventry but be aware that they were in different places in each store. In the first they were by the lightbulbs but in the second they were with other cheap 'bits & bobs' in £1-type cardboard boxes with 'Sale' written all over them. Sorry - can't explain it better but look around and you'll find plenty.

You might want to consider LED ones to save your poor electricity bill. They may not be as bright, but the newer types are still very bright, and most rooms with these sorts of spotlights have far too many fitted anyway.

If you don't get any at this cracking price, in ASDA they sell them in packs of 3 for £2, but if you buy 3 packs (9 bulbs) you get them for £5. Nowhere near 6p, but much, much cheaper than any other shop I looked in.
#11
Got some in the ayr store a couple of days ago but thought it was just store specific.
#12
Wow, nice find! My entire flat uses these and it's gutting when I have to go to tesco and spend 10 or 15 quid on light bulbs...
#13
Actually, are they the kind that have the two straight pins sticking out (like two bits of wire) or the type that have the thicker brass connectors that you twist them in to stay in place?
#14
thick pins with lumps = GU10 = mains voltage (always)
thin pins = G4 = low voltage

as the picture shows..

Cheers, I could see what kind was in the picture but the pictures attached to deals are quite often wrong. Wasn't clued up enough on lightbulbs codes to know which one GU10 was (but do now!). Thanks,

No-brand GU10s have a very poor life expectancy in my experience. If you buy light fittings with lamps included (usually in a plain white box) they never seem to last. Replace them with Sylvania/Osram/Phillips and life expectancy is dramatically improved.

As already mentioned even though these are cheap to buy they are expensive to run. The very much lower running costs of LED lamps will mean they pay for themselves in typical use within a year when compared to a 50W halogen.

Thanks - I have just bought five "warm white" 3x1W LED lamps from eBay for less than £25. The biggest worry about LED lamps is their reliability due to overheating, but the 3x1W style (with heat sink fins and vents) is the same as an MR16 (12V) cool white one I have had in my hall from DealExtreme for six months as a test. I have just added seven more since I was satisfied that it was lasting. That's a total power consumption of 24W for 8 lamps - less than one 35W halogen. You really should think slightly more long term than buying these no-brand no-life cheapo bulbs, because they are a bit of a false economy.

pibpob please provide item no so others can look into it as well.
#19
have to say tried led ones they were awful , no light whatsover and blew to quickly. ended up going for 20watt ones which were fine as the 50w ones would blow to quick as well.
so if people keep blowing their bulbs to quick just use lower wattage ones and save some electricity too!.
if you want regular cheap 50w ones 99p store usually has about 5 for.....99p
#20
any one see this deal in nottingham?

Not allowed for eBay. I think I've given you enough information to work out what I'm talking about. Similar are available from DealExtreme etc. One thing to note is that they are often deeper than the halogen variety.

Do you think there is any correlation bewteen your penchant for cheap lamps and your experience that they "blew to [sic] quickly" ?

Just a thought.... ;)
#23
no, used expensive ones with same result. the only good ones were the lower wattage ones. They seem to give off almost as good light as the 50w ones
#24
Damn it! I just bought some of these from Waitrose at 1,000,000x the price :(

Sixty grand for a GU10 lamp ?????

Normally I would agree with that statement, but after replacing a GU10 in our bathroom and one in the kitchen, one lamp was a Phillips and the other brandless. I went to Poundland and got 2 (forgot the unheard of name) for a pound. They claim to have 2500hr or 3000hr life
#27
They can claim all they want - did they have that life? They can also increase their life by operating at a lower temperature - making them much less efficient. Same for normal "long life" light bulbs.

I agree with you about some - I have had the same experience, but others are completely different - very bright and so far lasting well. I've explained which types I recommend.
#29
I think this is nationwide, they had them in Coventry Arena Park yesterday
#30
Plenty left in Tesco extra in Kilmarnock. No price on them but check them at the self checker. Great deal.
