I've taken a punt on 4 of these for. Good reviews. MAY BE LONGER THAN HALOGEN GU10's though.

- High quality aluminum alloy material
- Ultra bright high intensity 4-LED white light
- Rated voltage: 220V
- Color temperature: 6000~7000K white
- Luminous flux: 320~360 Lumen
- GU10 connector

Let us know how good these are, I tried another type and the light was so poor changed back to standard

6000-7000K is really bright white! and there is no indication of the power and the lamp life. Price seems good, but considering 'good' LED GU10s are in the region of £15+ bit sceptical. Not voted either way.

I did a fair bit of research. They are for the kitchen, so I wanted bright!

We'll be on single neutron, mega bright, oxygen powered, zero emission bulbs by the time these arrive (I was just trying to portray an ultra futuristic light source btw, it's not meant to be a technical prophecy)

6000K is quite a blue ("cool") light
also i doubt these are 360 lumen..
would recommend buying from a uk specialist because they'll be more honest and replace any bad ones. saving not enough to be worth it imho. check ebay for some good shops..

for a closer match to halogen bulbs you want around 2700K (warm white). they are still not as bright either and spectrum isn't same, no matter what they say. still think they're good though for running cost and hardly ever failing, some fittings go through halogens at a stupid rate.

According to other Dealextreme customer this use 4w.
6000-7000k is temperature (colour) of the light!!!
got one very similar from this site and last now 1.5 year average use is 6h day

6000-7000K is not an indication of the brightness, it's the colour (temperature) and these will be quite a bluey white. If you want to compare brightness that is measured in lumens.

be like a hospital,i have tried these before,didnt like the colour ,but each to there own

can you replace LED GU10 bulbs with standard GU10 Bulbs?

It depends on the lamp fitting. A standard GU10 lamp gets very hot and relies on the fitting to conduct heat away from the pins. If the fitting was only designed for LED lamps then there may be a fire risk.

any one got there lamps and tried them

Still waiting. I'm expecting them any day though and will update as necessary!

I really don't understand all this lumens stuff. I bought these for my kitchen and were so dull I put old ones back on........and I had 8 in my kitchen aswell ! Does anyone know if you can actually get LED bulbs that will be as bright as normal halogens?

Did you specifically buy these exact bulbs? These are much better than the bog standard LED ones (I hope...!)

I will report back.

Got them delivered and they are in. Looks promising, but I will wait till it's dark before I give my opinion! I can tell already though that they are much much much better than the standard LED's!

Now tested the bulbs against the halogens I had and the results are:

The light level is perfect for the kitchen. I would say exactly the same as halogen.
The beam angle is just the same as a halogen.
The brightness is really bright, but I think it's perfect for the kitchen.

They will cost £30 a year less to run (based on 4 x 50w bulbs against these 4w ones). So that's payback in a year.

These will last 20 x longer than halogens. Based on Halogens costing c£2.00 a bulb, you will be spending £40 on bulbs as opposed to £7 for one of these (if you live that long that is!)

No brainer IMO, I am well pleased with them.

You do realise you get different levels of colours right?

That's if they last 1 year. I bought some "30,000 hour" LED lights from B&Q.
When one packed in after about 3 months I had the mother of all arguments at their returns desk before they agreed to provide a replacement. To be fair, the remaining 4 have done 2 years so far, maybe 20 min a day average.

And when they go wrong expensive paper weights, a couple of months ago i bought 4 of these cheap LED bulbs for our kitchen and within 2 weeks everyone had gone and when I complained I was told that maybe I had a faulty mains system in my house. When they finally did except they where faulty after sending photos I was told that I had to send all of them back, which would of cost as much as the bulbs. I then contacted Paypal who where no help and said that when I sent them back I could have a refund. All in all if your buying LED bulbs buy them from here as these are utter pants. Ive since bought some from Amazon and they have been fine in the same light that the ones that blew in for a couple of months and if they do go they will be replaced.

The ones in my kitchen have been in for 3 years and are still going strong.. HOT from me!!

PS get your electrics checked LOL'z.

I am looking for LED lights to swap with B22 bulbs (standard bayonet socket) has anyone found any good ones yet?

I had toyed with the idea of fitting a number of lights with a 120 deg beam angle to try to cover the room from the centre pendant - can anyone suggest if this would work?

@Foxy102 - we have not spoken in a while - are you still running your car on VO?

Yes, I certainly am (although haven't filled up for a while due to the temperature). It's getting a bit pricey now though, not like the 75p per litre I was getting it in the summer!

Are you still running yours on it? You don't happen to know where I can get some cheap do you?!

When Tesco had the offer that worked out to 40p per litre I got 400 litres! (it's run out now though!)

I've been in a kitchen with some very similar to this and its like walking into a fridge, I like warmth in a kitchen which halogens do perfectly.

What is the length of these bulbs?
How much longer are they than a standard halogen GU10 bulb?
thanks.

I bought some of these from the UK. 6w bulbs, very good and same length as standard,roughly £10 each.

these will not be very bright probably about 20 watts , you can get a 21 led bulb which will give you about 50 watts , a 21 led buld will set you back about £12

The rule of thumb is that you need 1/10 the wattage of halogen. i.e. 5W LED will be about the same as 50W halogen.

Rubbish. I've got 68 and 72 LED bulbs and they are just about equivalent to 50W.

not a chance mate , keg123 says he s got 68 and 72 led and they just about give 50 watt , it depends on the quality of the bulbs you can pay upto £40 a bulb , where fitting them in a church at the min , once you go above 3 m ceiling level they loose there brightness and you wont get the lux levels

This is probably a silly question but do these work with a dimmer switch?

I bought 10 x GU10 LED bulbs with 60 LEDs in Warm White and they were £45.99 incl del and they consume 3.3w and I can't get over how bright they are. They claim by the vendor is that they are equivalent to 50w and as I did a direct replacement for 50w halogens I can't see any difference if anything they are brighter.

They have 5mm LEDs which apparently make the light brighter than shorter LEDs and come with a 6month guarantee.

Bought mine from ebay seller lustrumlight-uk

It's obviously a good job I don't live in a church then.

These are totally different to the 68 or 72 LED bulbs. I don't have the expertise to tell you why, but I'm sure someone with knowledge of LED bulbs can enlighten us.

Please take a look at my assessment (Post Number 16) based on usage in a domestic setting. I am really pleased with them and find that they match 50w halogens for light levels.

Dim Question but...
Can you use these with a dimmer?

Original Poster

One review (below) suggests not im afraid...

Pros:
Well build lightsource wich delivers far more light than a 230 VAC halogen bulb of 50 Watt.
I have compaired these lightsources (the halogen (Phillips 50W 230 VAC) ) and this one and I have to sat the lidlighbulb wich uses only about 4 Watt overclasses the Philips in any way, even in price!
Cons:
Some of the bulbs produces a more yellow spot in the center, others don't.
So the quality of the bulbs in lightcolor is not so good.
More uniform output would make the use much easier.
In multilight systems these effects are less visual.
Other Thoughts:
The electronic switching transformer does not allow to use a dimmer.
Betwee 80VAC and 240 VAC the luminous output is constant.
Even about 100 VDC 290 VDC is usable with these bulbs.
The beam is nice, the throw is limited
Bottomline:
Replace all you GU 10 incandecent bulbs with these and
you are saving a lot of money AND get more lumens than 50Watt halogens do.
Because every one replaces about 11/2 50 Watt halogens, you save 75W/4W is almost 95% of energy!!
Best Buy!!
