Great deal. Be wary of the beam angle. Ideally you would want something around 110 degrees to get a better coverage. This one only has 36degrees.

So what kind of room would this 36 degrees be suitable for? Like a small utility room but not a larger space??

It depends how wide apart your fittings are in a large space. If they’re close to each other then it should be ok.
I bought 2 sets last time here on offer.
For some reason first two I took of the box are very NOISY (buzzing sound).
This might be the reason being very cheap. Angle is ok for my use btw.
Buzzing sound might be caused by little loose transformer vibrating inside I think.Will be returning them.
VERY cold! 36 degree cover is absolute trash! Cheap for a reason. 60 degree wasn't the best with our spotlights and this is half that. For a bit more cash you can get 110 degree and 500 lumens in 5W bulbs vs the 36 and 355 lumens here.

VERY HOT! got these when they were the same offer a couple of months ago.
For £5 I have changed my mother-in-laws kitchen lights from 50w to 5w each, all 12 of them.
They look fine (being in a cluster as such) for my application and will knock her kitchen lighting down from 300w to 30w
Just picked mine up now.make sure you put 2 packs in your basket before you check out.i didn't but the assistant was very helpful & got me another pack.

Could be the tranformer you have in the fitting can only take a certain load, like between 10-20w max. If it's under, or over, that can cause a buzzing or flickering. Had it in the bathroom where I could only put 2x 5w bulbs in, the 3rd had to be a 20w to balance the load.
Wouldve been good if postable - hate c&c

Also check if its been wired properly too as it can cause flickering, I've found out about this when I change the bulbs from 50w to 5w as the 50w don't flicker for whatever reason. In my case 3x50w vs 3x5w.

They will last ~5x longer too which is more important at 50 pee a bulb.
Less outlay., less messing about. The leccy doesnt stack up to worth worrying about compared to the item price over time. (how long before you even need to buy more?)
Most people dont understand that because they listen to too much green propaganda and believe packaging.
These lamps were £25 each 5 years ago. (10? not sure but I went into a ryness and they were £25 each).

Hot! But not as hot as the halogen bulbs they have replaced! These LED bulbs run much cooler. The beam angle is perfectly fine for me and lights up the room at least as well as the halogen bulbs they replaced. So I must assume that the halogen bulbs were also the same beam angle. Generally these type of light fittings are evenly spaced and not that far apart, so these should be absolutely fine in most applications.

Hello all HotUKDealers,
The issue I have with this offer from Wickes is that looking on their site, all their decent offers are for "warm white"?
I am looking at getting a great deal on cool white or day white, either a pack of 6 or 10 or even 20.
Does anyone know anywhere which sells decent(ish) quality GU10 LED bulbs of cool white/ day white at a similar price?
Thanks to all

These are GU10's so are mains AC voltage supply so don't need external DC transformers. The AC > DC is done inside the LED bulb in GU10's unlike 12v DC MR16 bulbs .

Thanks but they only seem to have 340 lumens realtaljdealz is going to give the link for 500 lumens
I ordered 2 lots of these last time they were on "clearance" and I got a call the next day to say that they had no stock left.
I have ordered again this time , hopefully they will fulfill the order
I bought the 6 pack of these (I assume they're the same).
They're fine in our kitchen in terms of beam (smallish kitchen, closely clustered).

My problem is they are overly "warm", they are a very bright yellow.
Learnt so much about the GU10s by reading this!

Cheers

These are GI10 bulbs, the fitting does not have a transformer, they run on mains!

Ah ok guys, never ventured into the GU10 unit to notice, was just going off the experience of the MR16's I changed, thought it may be similar.

Nobody bothers with 12volt MR16s these days. GU10s all the way now matey. With a GU10 the transformer is in the bulb. This means that it's 1 less thing to replace as the whole bulb (power supply an all) is a consumable. It's quite easy to convert to GU10 from MR16, 5 min job per bulb for your average sparky.

Learn something new every day It's the last set of MR16 in the house, and i've just seen how to change it over, looks easy enough. I won't bother now though until it breaks.
Great, a hot GB deal only 😣

Thing is with 120 degrees 600 lumen you'll need half the bulbs or less, saving even more electricity and get more light in general. I switched from 60 degree 355 lmns (better than this deal) to 120 degree 600 lms and I couldn't go back tbh, same wattage use too. End of the day reallt depends on how bright and the coverage you want from the light. Good on you for reducing her electricity use though.

Don't get cool white or day white. The light they emit speeds up degeneration of eyesight. Usually recommend a bulb under 3500K.

They're really cheap bulbs, bad coverage, okayish light emitted. You can get 5Ws with 120 degree and 600 lumens
