That's true but generic LED GU10s often don't last that long despite promises of 50000 hours. I've had about 30% fail in a year using 'Lighting Ever' GU10s.
Any sparkys on here cam answer this.

If replacing halogen bulbs with these. Do I need a 12v convertor or can these be plugged straight into existing down lighters ?
I've had Lidl Livarno ones going for years in my kitchen, nice wide beam angle too as diffused smd type

Not a sparky but these are mains GU10 so provided your existing halogen are mains then no need for a transformer. Careful if you have a recessed spotlight as some reviews saying the dimensions are a bit different to regular GU10's

I always had trouble with led GU10 bulbs not lasting, even the more recognised makes until I bought the pro elec ones from CPC farnel. All still going strong at nearly 2 years now. Highly recommended. They are called LED COB. Think they are 5w or 3.5w. I mostly have the 5w and the brightness is impressive. Bought a few 3.5w ones very recently for a spare room and they are not bad either.
They are 10 pack lap in screwfix for £12.69 always thought Phillips were overpriced.

Depending on fitting you can use a led R bulb.Its another type of downlight.

I may BAY some too.
Good price. Although to be honest with LED bulbs I buy new ones because the technology has improved rather than because they have gone. I keep thinking "they can't get any better than this" but then two years later they're better and cheaper again.

Recessed lighting looks so good, I am gradually replacing all the light fittings in my house with them when I have the patience to work in the Victorian ceiling space (very dusty and very tight for room).
GU10s have a 240v feed into them and the transformer is incorporated into the bulb. This is why they tend not to last as long as bulbs with separate transformers such as the MR11 or MR16s which have pin prongs rather than T shaped ones.
These are 2700 Kelvin, which i find far too yellow for most lighting. Nice colour for reading lamps or anywhere you want a warm light. It does depends what you want but i find 4000-4500k is the best "daylight" colour for general lighting. Anything higher is too blue anything lower is too yellow.
Two for a quid in Pounland... no brainer really imho

Phillips are good. LEDs were originally marketed as lasting over a decade but the cheap one's from ebay China seem to only last at most a few months

Thanks, no failures in 2 years is v impressive I'll give them a look.
Don't you love how a bulb knows it's done 2000 hours like it say on the box and blows, we had 100's at work and most went in order.

The kitchen down lighters in our kitchen are r50 ses or old type mini spot lights, only LED's I could get to fit are from Home Bargains. I love taking them back if they've blow within 12 month cover to be swapped. It's an electronic item not a bulb.
