GU10 led light. 4.7W 345 lumens. Box of 50 for £50. I paid this amount to buy 20 recently. These are roughly equivalent in light output to the old 50W bulbs.

you can get 5w one from Poundland

Great price at £1 a bulb but this bit puts me off "Please note this product is plastic and not glass."

These are very good quality, LAP which is a Screwfix brand are reliable.

this is a bright idea

Just checked mine, which were much more expensive, and they are also plastic.

36 degree beam angle. Bit narrow for me.

Leds don't get hot as far as I understand so no need to be glass. Hence the efficiency gain

This is the normal price in screwfix for these, no deal here. They usual discount there Lap range every 6weeks or so.

Yep, and they're brilliant. Highly recommend. Got about 40 around the house, and on virtually every day since August. Not had one issue.

These are great bulbs... would recommend. Don't need this many as have them already and not had one fail yet in over a year.

Poundland GU10's are well worth it, used them for over 12 months now, never a problem.

you should check out check out the 72000 lumen LED flashlight - that seems to use a pretty beefy water cooled heatsink for something that doesn't produce heat.

Isn't the problem with these lower priced LED bulbs the harshness of their white light compared to traditional gas-guzzling bulbs?

You don't want the relaxing areas of your home lit like a morgue (or do you ?)

Things have moved on - just choose warm white bulbs.

They've moved on a bit, you can now actually get warm white LEDs but having had to go through several sets/brands before finding some that were actually on par with the old halogens, I can tell you there are still lots of stark, cold LED bulbs out there that advertise themselves as being "warm white".

Same here, they have outlasted much more expensive Aurora brand ones and the have a warmer colour too if that's your bag.

everything that gets electric supplied to it heats up. but led are very low wattage so dont produce enough watt to gain heat. but you not going to get a light buld at 72000 lumen are you and that would be very high wattage so yes of course its going to heat up.
