I wonder if a energy efficient version of these bulbs will ever appear, I know kitchens which are lit with these using several hundred watts just to have a pretty looking kitchen, nuts.

Ahhh they do exist, but with a ridiculous markup.

homebargains are doing them for 69 pence each, i got 8 of them today.

they are also selling the osram long life bulbs 11w ( 60watt) for 59p each.

Not when you think how much electric you use with halogens! And ive always found they dont last that long either! Although what you save in electric you have to pay in heating as they really do give some heat out, in fact im sure i read that electrically they are more efficient as a source of heat than they are light!

Bought some of these in tesco when they were clearing out there DIY stock, two bulbs for 10p!!! Also bought packs of 6 standard 60w bulbs for 10p each!:)

:thumbsup: Tescos >>>G9 Halogen capsule bulbs, £1.27, could be a mis-price these are normally well over £3, even on-line, I snapped up 20 and I'm going back for more today.
I rather stupidly bought some light fittings with these in and when the bulbs started going I was shocked at the cost of replacements, the bulbs cost more than the fittings, a right rip-off:w00t:

£2.35 here

These GU10 50W bulbs are 2 for £1 in Poundland. Been using them in my house for ages and seem to last and work as well as the Philips ones.

Beware buying cheap bulbs of this type.

I put up a light strip which uses 6 of these bulbs around 6 months ago, and since then, everyone of the ones that were supplied (B&Q) have blown. In the end I had to replace them with GE ones.

None of the GE ones have blown yet.

In my house, every time a bulb blows it trips the circuit breaker, making it inconvenient to go to the garage and reset it.

However, if there is a source of quality cheaper bulbs, then I am interested although I am pretty sure very cheap and quality do not typically go together.

Know what you mean, but have used a number of different make now, from GE to Philips to cheap unknown makes. Some of the market-stall ones are dire, emit a funny rainbowy light and don't last 5 minutes. But the Poundland ones have been just as reliable as GE/Philips etc and no problems with the emitted light quality.
