I posted some other bulbs earlier but these are also a good deal.

It will default to 10 but the six packs are a better price per bulb.

Reviews on other bulbs from the same seller indicate that you have to return all bulbs purchased if one goes faulty, which isn't great.

I'm tempted by the cool white ones, but I may hold off for the time being.

I've gone for 2 x 6 packs of cool white for the bathroom and kitchen.

Will let you know how they are on arrival, seems a good price on the face of it.

Been bothering me for a while thinking about the amount of energy used by the 12 Halogens I have running (and the frequent need to replace).

my other half does not like the cool white LEDs and much prefers the warm white versions.

as the cool white were too harsh for her.
if you can, go for LEDs that have fewer LEDs - the smd type which are brighter and more efficient.
go by the lumens value for brightness, and don't rely on the watt value alone.

We bought a pack of 6 for the kitchen a few months back, one of the bulbs started randomly flickering, contacted the seller and a replacement was sent out with a pre-paid package to return the faulty unit, very happy with the bulbs, every other LED unit we'd tried never lasted longer than an old house bulb so can't go wrong with these

Great value, bought 2 @ 6/pack - shame they all have glass covers , I prefer open ones for IP65 bathroom downlights

not dimmable I am guessing

Thanks - ordered a pack of 6 - was about to order stuff from Amazon so worked out well..

who says 3W is "high brightness"

I have over 50 LED bulbs ranging from 2W to 7W and if you want anywhere near to decent brightness, you need 5W+ bulbs

They mean brighter than other 3w bulbs. 'Decent brightness' to you may not be decent brightness to somebody else.

I know brightness is a relative thing, however I am simply comparing it to other bulbs of same fitment (ie GU10) as most people buying this will be those moving from GU10 non-LED to LED

Perhaps one should be looking at the 'lumen' value which is the SI derived unit of luminous flux, a measure of the total "amount" of visible light emitted by a source (wiki). Though 3W these are rated at 290 lumen. I have some which are 4W rated at 280-320 lm. So when moving from GU10 non-LED to LED it is worth keeping an eye on the Lumen value too, not just the Watts.

I received some 4w LED bulbs the other day with similar lm to these and they are brighter than the old 35w halogen bulbs they replaced.

I have just got 6 of each, the cool white are 290 lumen & the warm white 280 lumen, the have the smaller smd leds and compare well against other gu10 smd 5050 led lamps I have, in fact I would say that the lumen values are conservative by comparison. I tend to use the cool white in bathrooms and for 'task' lighting and the warm white elsewhere. The only small issue I have noticed is that the cool whites are quite a tight fit in the holder - tested all 12 on receipt.

i have 39 downlighter bulbs to change in my house , but was unsure to go for bright white or warm white , so i bought 24 bright white to try , they are absolutely brilliant bulbs and so cheap , best thing is i was changing from 50w halogen that cost about £7.50 each to run a year , these only cost me about 75p each a year to run , so im quids in .....buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy
