Will check them out cheers. Keep putting off buying the 20 or so I need but they are starting to pop.

Yes they have the e27 and E14 types in the warm and cool light. The Daylight ones are only available in the GU10 and e14 types.. The screw types are £3.99 though but worth I bought a few of them for the rest of my house. Just so impressed by the brightness, the dam loves them

I had been using warm ones but recently I tried cool white, white light is best for desktop and worktop lamp.

I don't know how good the ones on eBay are but I have seen most auctions going for about 10 for £10 free delivery

these are quite good had them for a couple of weeks now. surprising how much brighter than the old yellow halogen ones. and give about 80% less heat off.

That's the thing, you can get these LEDs cheaper than this but these in terms of energy rating and output, they are superior quality IMO. Try on or two in your local store and hopefully you'll agree. I normally urea rely on deal posts and reviews but never actually post any myself mainly because I forget, but I thought this was worthy of sharing.

Amazon are also selling them and for their 4W are a bit cheaper.

Know nothing about these LED bulbs, so could somebody confirm if they will work in normal/ordinary GU10 light fittings??

Those are 4w withe lower lumens and lower energy rating of A. Whereas these yes are 1w more but higher lumens and higher energy efficiency rating A+. You decide! I repeat my deal is mainly for the 'Daylight' LED gu10 which should not be mistakenly compare with the cool white or warm white as the daylight is extremely brighter. Not sure if this daylight classification is an official one as I have never come across till now.

These definitely fit the the normal GU10 fittings I bought eight of these to change in my kitchen down lighters ,was really pleased with them, and you don't feel like there is a heater above your head ,like the normal GU 10 bulbs they get really hot, then LED bulb is really cool

Are they dimmable?

No energy bulb lasts the recommend manufacturer time.
I have been using energy saving lamos since 1986. None of them lasted more than two thirds of the time they said.

Thanks for that brockware. Will give them a try.
Presume you can therefore mix them together, rather than whisking all the "normal" ones out?

the amazon recommended ones above do not have a glass cover , I use 64smd 5 watt glass cover ones
off ebay warm white . not the daywhite .. unless you want a police helicopter hovering above your house , lol
10 gu10 bulbs are £18 shipped . the ones from home bargains are 5w glass cover 48smd . they are fine .. 10 bulbs use 50 watts instead of 500 watts . they are not as hot as halogen therefore less chance of " your house catching fire " siya x heat added ta op xxx

I don't think they are dimmable anyone got any deals for dimmable LEDs with housing thanks a bunch

I just got some of these from amazon and they are excellent quality amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_3?qid=1423121463&sr=8-3π=SL75&keywords=beiyi+gu10+future

I've had mine for about 6 months now and no failures so rate these for the price, had some from bnq for a few quid more and 2 blew within a month lol

Done about 25 bulbs in my house. 2 failures in the first month which I had replaced in store. There is nothing about warranty on the box so unsure at what point they won't except returns. Anybody know?

very good bulbs, didn't like the daylight ones but warm are just like normal bulbs, been in just over a month and no issues so far.

they have various bulbs and also the small halogen type bulb version.

older thread if anyone needs it.

but not money saved because your heating system will have to work a bit harder during the winter months to make up.

I don't understand this comment. Please explain. Thanks

What they mean is the heat from traditional bulbs actually contribute to any warm within your house, so do LED bulbs, your TV on, Fridge, people in rooms etc Therefore, your heating system getting upto a set temperature will have to make up for the difference you lose for the heat generated by the bulbs (when on).

Obviously your heating is going be more economical for heating the house (than a light bulb), and not something you're going to really notice cost wise when compared to savings on the electricity from the lower wattage bulbs.

Do these just fit your standard ceiling socket?

We put GE CFL's all through the house in Florida - nearly all of the bulbs seem to burn out within one year. Thankfully GE just send out replacement bulb vouchers to replace them each time.

Replaced 3 x halogen bulbs that were used for around 6 years, with 3 x 60SMD LED's - the first set lasted 2 weeks before they became dim and then failed totally within 3 months. Replacement set managed 6 months, old halogen bulbs put back into light and no problems at all!

Being fair, the 60SMD LED's were from China and apparently very poor quality...

The G9 ones are also awesome. I've replaced all the halogen bulbs in my light fittings in the house and they are fantastic.

yes if the bulb holder is a GU10

I bought some of these the last time this deal was posted. Very impressed with the light quality, with added benefit of very low power usage and next to no heat emitted. Eh, have some heat!

Up to: the greatest advertising slogan!

Traditional incandescent bulbs can last up to 114 years!!

How's that for an advertising slogan!?

Just so we are all crystal clear.......these are pretty much turd.

nice n cheap.....yes......they light up....yes

but if you have any ideas about a beam pattern or flicker....then step away

fwiw, the IKEA GU10 LED lamps are infinitely better than these for a pound or so more

I am sure there are better lamps out there for more or less the same price

The LED chips themselves may last 32 years, but I bet the constant current power supply driving them will fail long before that. Unfortunately with a lot of LED lamps, its the internal power supply which fails long before the LED chips, the capacitors being the common weak spot, as often they are unknown Chinese brands, which fail either through age, or through heat stress, or excessive current ripple. Some of these lamps have little, if any, internal surge protection, so can often even get blown by an electrical surge through the mains.

I deal with components on a daily basis, and most cheap capacitors have a lifespan of either 1000 or 2000 hours, and even the top brands, are only often only rated to 5000 hours. Sadly a product is only as good as its weakest link and any LED lamp itself is reliant on several other internal components, and i'd be surprised if these lasted 10 years, let alone 32 and i'm still bemused how any manufacturer can offer 32 years of guarantee on a product whose internal components only have a lifespan of a few 1000 hours, on their individual datasheets.

I consider getting a year or two out of any LED lamp to be a bonus, especially if its a frequently used lamp or in a dusk - dawn fitting. If you really do expect to get 32 years worth of regular usage or even several years worth, then my advice is, keep the receipt in a safe place, and be prepared to put to the test any long warranty which the manufacturers are offering.

If you are still in any doubt, this is well worth a read

But, now the good news, even if they did last a couple of years, then yes they would still save you money, if they don't then take them back!.
