Quite a new product in Amazon, although not the best product around, but for 13.99 for 10, it is quite good even if it lasts its warranty period. customers so far seem to be happy.

380Lumens, 4w, and quite a narrow beam width (not sure exactly by guessing 45)

Fulfilled by Amazon, so easily returnable and warranty administered.

Edit to respond to few questions some members have:
The bulbs have CE RoHS approval
380 Lumens is equivalent to 40 watt incandescent

Make sure they're CE marked, and if not, send them back. There's some lethal GU10 LED bulbs on the market.

I agree with the above comment, I would be especially careful with these due to having what looks like a metal heat sink/body.

Skips these go for SMD ones, just 1 is bright enough to light the whole room. These crappy 3 bulb LED ones give off less light than a torch.

It is 380 Lumens, which is equivalent to a 40W incandescent light. ~ 30 candles

A LED torch, which costs around £20, would give out 125 Lumens ~ 10 candles

Yeah under the focused beam, torches have more than that.... what they dont tell you is the wider areas lumens which is what is important. 4 in a room will not be enough.

This is what you want.

We have 16 of these in the main reception and 8 in the other smaller reception. They're spotlights and not supposed to light up the house.

Just to give you an idea, with the 16 bulbs ON at the same time, they don't even give the equivalent light coming out of 40w incandescent light.

They create a great atmosphere though and this is what we bought them for.

What rubbish, you can't use the number of LEDs nor technology for the LED determine the capability. I've got 3 LED lamps that use SMD chips and lenses to produce a far more realistic light output compared to the halogen replacements. If you really want a high output you need to look at COB chips, but these require a lot better heat dissipation compared to SMDs and probably have a much shorter lifespan.

There are loads of variables that need to be taken into account, just buying based on Watts or number of SMDs is not going to provide a decent method to compare or define the required light output. The suggestion that 4 would be enough to illuminate a room, doesn't consider the light output of the LED lamp, the colour temperature, the size of the room nor the ceiling or wall coverings that will all have an impact.

In addition to the light output, you should be looking to lifespan, this can depend on how 'hard' the SMD is driven, most SMD chips have a working output that varies significantly, some can be more efficient towards the top end of their working characteristics, but this can seriously shorten their lifespan.

But if you need to find a comparison, use the lumens output, I have a single LED GU10 in my kitchen that outputs nearly twice the light output of the 27 SMD lamp linked in one of the respones.

Personally I always like to try a single lamp before committing to a larger purchase.

Iv used every LED bulb thats i could find in my gu10 fitted kitchen and none put out the light that those smd bulbs did, just 1 was enough to brighten the entire kitchen.

None of them had any longevity they all died within 6-10months both LED and SMD. But if a lighted room is what your after and halogen isn't for you then the SMD bulbs are the best. All the 3 bulb led lights are crap! the light they give off is directed like a magnifying glass and is useless.

The issue I find with SMD ones is while close up you have a big spread of light but it diminishes quickly as you move further away. In all honesty I can't find a bulb as good as the halogens but I'm using 3x3w cree LED's as the best compromise I can find.
