Been looking for some decent dimmable LED GU10 to replace my energy hogging 50W halogen ones.
These look like they fit the bill nicely. Choice of warm white, natural white and daylight colour temperatures

Good but 450lm is not quite 50w halogen, more like 35w or so - if current are bit too bright then fine but if you expected the same may appear a bit dim...

Replaced some halogens recently recently with some non-dimmable 5W LEDs from a deal here that purportedly have a lm output of 375lm. The LED ones actually appeared to be brighter!

Not sure if the maybe the lm output is a bit misleading
or perhaps my old halogens were not the 50W (not sure because I didn;t buy the halogens - they were included in the house I bought)

In my experience 450lm is quite high for a 50w equivalent LED GU10. Some similar Philips (=50w) LED's are only 270lm.
I am not knocking this deal in any way but
wish to mention that the GU10's at Home
Bargains are now at a new price of £1.99.
They are non-dimmable.The B22's bayonet
fittings are down to £2.49. May help. Not a
deal as such as it is the regular price.

I've taken a look and we may be somewhat in the middle, from Philip's site 50W equivalent is about 350lm:

So yes 450lm would be more than 50W. Strange for halogens to be that inefficient even in GU10 format.

There is a thread for the non-dimmable home bargains ones here..

Also seems you can buy them in cases of 14 from their website...

Seems a few of you have some experience with LED GU10's, so hopefully you can give me some advice.

I have 55 MR16 spotlights in my house. With prices having dropped so low on LED equivalents, I'm thinking its time to bite the bullet and swap these out. It appears the best route is to change the Lamp holders to GU10 (the housings are good quality Aurora ones so I'd like to keep them), fortunately I insisted all the transformers could be pulled out. But I have a couple of questions:

1) I know I'll have to change the Varilight dimmers Anyone have any experience using the new Varilight dimmers with LED bulbs: tlc-direct.co.uk/Pro…N5Q

2) From my reading it shouldn't be a problem switching out just the lamp holders on my existing lights. I assume I should probably get holders with the junction box attached, rather then use the one thats attached to the MR16 holder? As now mains voltage rather then low voltage will be going through the junction boxes.

3) All but 14 of the lights are attached to dimmers. I figure given the "relatively" small difference in price these days, I may as well use the same dimmable bulbs in those for consistency of light. However, some of those are in bathrooms, I assume provided the holders are correctly rated, the LED bulb used doesnt matter?

4) Given I have so many bulbs, I'm prepared to spend a bit more. Are the ones listed here of good quality, or are there others I should consider? The lamps are currently 50w, but generally the bulbs are dimmed, so output which is between 35W and 50W equivalent should be fine.

5) Are these bulbs similar size to standard MR16's? I've read that sometimes the LED replacements can be longer, so protrude from housings?

Thanks for any pointers/help you can give. Especially if there's something I've missed
