LED spotlights last 20+ years, are not affected by temperature (so come on full brightness immediately), don't get hot, are mercury free and more environment friendly than CFL energy saving bulbs. They also tend to cost £20 to £30+ pounds for 6-9W lights (35 - 50+ Watt equivalents).

So the range of LED spots at Saverstore seem to offer incredibly good value.

Had 2 from China, both failed within a year and they were not even used every day.

I got the ones from Dealextreme. They are superb and have replaced my halogens perfectly.

Seems like a good deal

do these give a white light, or yellow light?

Been after these, lower energy types for ages, as currently my 6 draw 300w in total.

1 for £6.49 on the bay from uk only 3w = 50w

Your link doesn't seem to be complete so I can't tell who is claiming that 3W=50W but that's well off the mark! It varies a bit from make to make (you really need to compare lumens) but 9W=50W is more realistic for GU10 and MR16 spotlights.

But the ones on your link are 3W. The ones on the posted deal are 6W & 9W!!!!

Also, this is hotUKDeals. Yes you can get lamps from China (and probably get away with not paying tax on them) but you can wait weeks for them to turn up and what protection have you got if they're faulty?

That's what I thought too. 3 watts is not enough. Also do these leds produce enough light for use or just for show.
I know some only operate in smaller angles, ie 30 degrees.

If you click through to the deal you'll find that they quote 60 degree coverage (or at least, the ones I looked at did), so they should provide practical working light rather feature lighting.

Sorry, missed this question earlier. The site quotes two colour ranges Warm White and Pure or Cool White. They give the colour temperature as: 3200 – 3500K (Warm White) "equivalent to a halogen bulb or photoflood" and 5000 – 6500K (Pure or Cool white) which "gives a daylight effect".
Open sunlight is about 5500K so anything beyond that starts to look slightly blue. On my digital SLR on the white balance settings it refers to the values up in the 6000K range as being either shadow or overcast lighting. Old fashioned 100W pearl bulbs (of fond memory) had a colour temperature of around 2800K. Photoflood bulbs are the sort of thing that used to get pointed at you if you went to a studio for a portrait and as I recall were a pretty strong.white. These days, of course, studio flash units area used.
