I actually agree with you - pay cheap usually pay twice.

The problem with all led bulbs is the wattage and heat dissipation - according to experts the maximum for long lasting and safety is actually 3-4 watts at the very max - I have to agree and so all poundland bulbs and the grossly exaggerrated 9 watt ebay ones which are probably less than 4 watts are not a great buy but i like to try and test!

Dimmable ones should also be used with their own transformers if they are mr16 which means ripping open your roof , not fun! Dimmables do not last as long for obvious electronic reasons!

I have selected the ebay ones a few times and the price never goes up - thats an Amazon "foible" - never seen it on ebay!

But yes the above deal is a good on but they are 5 watt and have the cheap plastic shell - you ideally want ones with the metal shell that has fins on it to dissipate the heat otherwise they wont last long - the heat melts the solder inside and the leds fail - the reason for the failure of most of these things is the small leds - easily fixed though but few people would bother!
