Yeah,been looking for a while and seen some really silly prices.
Lots of trade counters around so even cheaper for those near to one.:)

One place they are cheaper is in a store called The Range. I got 6 packs today for my kitchen (8 bulbs) and they are 99p for 2 made by Stratos. They have 50w, 30w and 25w to choose from.

This is a good deal though because i think The Range is few and far between in most cities.

Absolute bargain, Hot Hot Hot

i remember when these were 9 quid each

To make the footprint even smaller, consider getting some LED based ones. They only consume 2-3W

Get some energy efficient ones - they last for years, don't blow up at random after a few months, and the equivalent of a 50W halogen only uses about 12W.

Poundland have these in packs of two


They're £1 :whistling:

Good find, heat added.

For the more energy conscious see my new post for Led GU10 Lamp 240v - White

thats great, I didn't know you could buy them in smaller amounts

There another difference with GU10's which most most don't know is the Flood Level.

The Screwfix ones are 40 deg's ! :thumbsup:

Usually the cheap ones are 25's.

6% Quidco as well

Be careful if using unbranded GU10s with dimmers - especially MK Grid dimmers. When they blow they can take out the dimmer switch as well. I think this is because they don't have an internal fuse like the branded ones.

LED GU10 are a good mutiple in price. (4-5 times more expensive)
Even if they blow every five years you'll still pay more for LED ones.

Also bear in mind that LED ones do not give off as much light. 15W as opposed to 50W
And also little heat so you'll just spend more on heating your house up in winter!!!

I am yet to be convinced by the environmental benefits of low energy bulbs.

Cost of manufacture both in £ and in C02 is arguable too!

my mrs bought one of these bloody lights and all the bulbs shes tried give off a pink light???, wth is that about? Pink in the kitchen?? ugh

Great deal - voted hot :thumbsup: !

Does anyone know of any good bulk deals on GU5.3 50W 12v halogen bulbs?

Banned

I just got some from work (trade price) and they worked out more than these but then mine do have a 4000hr rating and 50 deg's plus have a white light not the pinky lesser luminance ones.

Also i brought a led one to try and what a pile of crud. gives off a horid blue tinted light (supposed to be white) and is really dull even though rated to be a direct replacment. ok it will last 500000 hours but i would have thrown it in the bin by then and got the old halogen ones

Mart

I notice screwfix also sell GU10's made by osram and philips that carry an 'A' rating yet also consume the usually 35 - 75watts. If this is correct that would mean they put out a huge amount of light. Perhaps its an error on there website. ? The pictures of the bulbs only show what appears to be a halogen or xenon bulb.

Poundland are doing 2 of the 50w halogens for £1 so for £10 you can get 20 with no postage - i.e. you have to buy them instore.

I tried some LED ones in our kitchen recently and they were dire. I popped them in and turned them on and could barely see a thing. The beam only projected around 4 feet before dissipating (no good when it's 6 feeet to the worktop). Luckily I bought them at B&Q so took them back the next day for a full refund, the sales assistant said they'd had loads back because they weren't bright enough.
