Just what I was looking for heat

£1 each in home bargains op

Worth pointing out these are LED bulbs by the look of it - not standard GU10's - hence a v good price !

Led buls in homebargains are£4.39 and a different brand.I bought some todayhomebargains.co.uk/pro…spx

Agreed above poster homebargains ones are halogen
do not know the luminare power of these but they look good
sorry about the cold vote
" my apologies "

250 luminare 35-40w. Good light and great value. A fairly narrow spot beam with 3 emitters however this common for this type of led. I'm currently using 10 (really needs 12) in our 18x10ft kitchen which is only just enough light.

Great deal good light from them too I posted this in December tho so no heat sorry

They also have some SunSolar 4W LED GU10's for £2.99 in Home Bargains but they have a longer body so may not suit some applications. :¬}

Had 35w LED bulbs and they really weren't up to much. Same light output as these 6 in a kitchen 12ft by 10ft. Really could hack it and found myself squinting to read packaging. Upgraded to a 6.5w Fein electric dimmable set from Costco at £14.99 for 2 inc vat and I can quite honestly say they are probably slightly brighter than your standard 50w incandescent GU10

Bought a pack 2 weeks ago. First bulb lasted 8 days. The light is also blue looking compared to normal bulbs.

Had the for a month now. They are really good. I'm afraid once the blow out I will need to spend 4 pound a bulb lol

Are these dimmable?

I use the Robert Dyas ones, 2w TCP LED's, £9.99 for 3, LED bulbs . I use them on a 4 bulb array in the kitchen and they are perfect, 200w reduced to 8w!!

Go and get a refund. The manufacturers claim very long life for these bulbs, so if they fail early in life go and DEMAND a refund.
Don't let them get away with shoddy quality.

OMG, the glossy brochures were right about the prices of LED lamps dropping.

What is better 2x11W CF bulbs or 2x3x3.8W (these)?

I don't see the point in using triple spotlights as the light's point source is broadly the same, not like spotlighting, but that's all my wiring set up will allow.

the colour is due to the temperature ( kelvin ) colours over 5000k are generally called cool colours bluish white , 2700k- 3000k are called warm colours yellowish white . should say on the box

Not dimmable

I picked up two sets of these last week, was going to post until I tried them.

Opened the first pack, one LED dead, tried the 2nd bulb and the plastic cover fell off as I was screwing it in.

Taking them back tomorrow, waste of money. Expected better from Duracell.

BTW the bulb in the picture is not the one in the triple set. That one is £7 as a single.

Here we go again - it's LED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oO

Would they be bright enough to swap my GU10 35w ones I have in the Kitchen on a four spotlight track?

These are poo
Light is blue. (typical of crap LED based lighting)

Spend some money unless you want to feel like you're in a hollywood movie on a metro in new york city about to get crept up on and stabbed or something.

Check the sale aisle as the 3 pack of these were down to £5 in my local. Marked down with sticker on pack so could well be store specific.
Can't comment on performance as I didn't buy them - resisted the bargain! (I replaced mine last month with Phillips ones from Tesco which are a nice bright white light - but were a lot more expensive!)

These are not Blue but white
pack says warm white but imo brighter than warm white
still a great buy though
I replaced in my kitchen with these are they are more than sufficient

When i first installed 18 gu10 lights in my kitchen ceiling i had 9w low energy bulbs fitted.The bulbs lasted about 6 months then they blown one by one. so i have been using 20watt cheap bulbs from the range 2 for £2. i tried one led bulb in the corner and it has lasted about 5 years now but blue light so did not like the idea of replacing with led. bought a set of these bulbs today and am impressed with the white brightness of these. And if they last as long as the other led one they will be well worth the extra cost. Heat from me

Was planning to switch to LED but when I saw 8xGU10 MR16s for 25p and 3 for 2 in Tesco I stocked up. Good deal though.

You need SMD rather than LED. These aren't all that good. Do some research first before parting with your hard earned.

Cheap LED bulbs are crap - they either blow within 10 months or the light is no good. I have tried using several different versions purchased online and good luck trying to get ebay / PowerSeller to care after 45 days if your bulb goes after the period where you can't give the seller negative feedback and Ebay / PayPal won't issue a refund.

Anyway I bought a load of the following when Homebase have their regular 10% or 15% offer on and they have been brilliant so far (3 months) and made sure I have kept the receipt to return them if they fail within the 3 year / 25,000 hours life expectancy period:
homebase.co.uk/web…014

Andy sym i got them same ones from homebase , but can not see any 3 year warranty on them or my reciept ?????

On the back of the pack, next to 4W GU10 there is a big 3 in a circle and around the circle it says GB 3 year warranty as well as the 25 year (25000H) bit which I will use if ANY of mine fail within 3 years.

They do sell LED lamps in the £1 shops but the ones I bought havent been that good.

For you guys that use the GU10's from Homebase, what's the verdict on the brightness of these things? (The ones in the link provided by andy_sym)
I have 2x GU10 50W's in her indoors' bathroom. On the Homebase website it says they are 50W equivalent. What's your verdict?

Edit: It's got me thinking, are 2x 4W LED's 1x 50W equivalent?

Thanks

Never seen them but probably just those hopeless 'decorative' ones which are no use for seeing by. Amazes me how many people don't seem to understand the different types of bulbs let alone their power ratings.

anyone used these ? ledhut.co.uk/hom…tml

they're nearly £7 each but have a no quible 5 year guarentee and have 20 led's per bulb, seem to get good reviews
