Are there any GU10's with bayonette adapters that are say equivalent to 60W...?

low light , rubbish

I got these recently and am very happy with the light output and colour temperature.
Heat from me.

Cool white doesn't usually look very natural'

I think I would pay a few extra pounds for four watt warm white

These ones are defo better. Have both, cool white in kitchen looks like a hospital.

agree about cool white , very unnatural

luckily I only bought one to try , go for warm white.

This is a good deal :p, I use the 5w version of this bulb (warm white), shame the same deal isn't on them!

Agree with others. Cool white - be careful or you'll make your house feel like a dental practice.

You can get the warm white ones for a three quid more.

I can recommend the COB LEDs which look much more natural albeit more expensive and can't be dimmed (unless you pay even more!)

Do these run on 240V AC directly, or do you need a transformer or adaptor? What's the supply voltage for these?

240V. No need for a transformer.

Home bargains have singles at this price and CPC have singles at a similar price as well if you want them delivered (link to an example, brochure page with full range of cheap LEDS).

I'd get these if you have a home bargains close by. You can buy these for £2.49 each in store. More lumens and a wider beam angle. I have both daylight and warm white. Had them in for about 18 months and no failures so far.

These are WARM white so will much more natural and youd hope with an actual brand they may be better quality

.....but no 3-year warranty. I'd go for Screwfix, the 3-year warranty is not the norm, all you get is a qouted average life of "x" thousand hours. The word to watch for is "average" - this means your bubs may last 20,000 hours (*who's counting?) or just a few days, in the last case - tough!

got them for around £29 couple of months back and I was surprised to see how bright they actually are! I have 6 fitted in my dining room and wish I had only 4 as they are very bright. shame they are not dimmable so I could control it. most recommended.

LED's lights either die within the first few weeks/months or last that long you forgot when you bought them.
Anything more then 6 months is overkill.

4kWh/1000h


What a strange measurement. Why not just say 4W?

Trust me, I've had many LED GU10 bulbs and these WILL be disappointing. 250 lumens is just cold, dim light. For direct halogen replacements you need 800-900 lumens of warm light.

I realise I'm probably in the minority though....
Buy daylight (can't get more natural than sunlight, can you?)or cool white, unless you like your home looking like a nicotine stained pub. Donning fire resistant suit as I type.

Very cold.

Cold white light is very clinical and at £2.50 each these are not even that cheap. Add in the dismal 4w output and these are not worth buying

Please can anyone tell me if any of the bulbs mentioned in this thread are dimmable? Thank you

If your lights are low that's more of a ceiling problem than a light problem. Don't blame the messenger.

No these are not dimmable - says so in the specifications. You can get led bulbs that are but they cost more.

make sure you keep your receipt in a safe place place, chances are after a few months or so you will probably forget where your safe place is lol..

if there not fit for purpose take them back, get minimum 12m anyway

I bought 20 philips ones from Tescos for 3 for a £10,, they started failing after days, swapped maybe 10 eventually took them all back for full refund

If they get to 12m they should lasted ages, of the maybe 35 phillips ones i got 5 are still gonig strong 2 years later

4w output is equivalent to 35w normal so more than acceptable

A lot of LED failures are because people don't read the instructions, as in a lot of them are not to be fitted in a enclosed light fitting, as they overheat , you need to use fittings like these diy.com/roo…prd which allow air to pass around the LED.

I got some 1W GU10 a few years ago, and my lighting bill would be £6 / year if I let them on for 10 hours a day

The warm white versions of these are brilliant, have them in our hall and landing and in my sons room.

Bought lots of them now and only had 1 that didn't work, of course Screwfix replaced it without question.

I don't think you understand LED wattage ratings, 4w is just about perfect for downlight LED's and similar to 35/40w ish.

As an actual user of these I can confirm they are not dim at all. I have 6 in our hall and 6 on the landing and the light they produce is excellent.

I also recently put them in the kitchen to replace halogen spots, same number, same position and the lighting is equal to the halogen spots we had, but I now don't have to replace the bulbs every other day as I did with the rubbish spots!!

I've got 4 lights in my bathroom. Wouldn't 4 of these give adequate light?

On the negative side, your chiropody bill would be far greater due to continually walking into things. 1W is very, very dim. Although LED lights often use quite a bit more than their rated power, so perhaps what you actually have is 3W LEDs with "1W" written on them.

I have these in the Kitchen and bathrooms, very good output and more than bright enough.

has anyone looked at screwfix page amazing saving of whole £3 whoop tee do!

I use these and they're brilliant. Equivalent to a 50W bulb (warm white are also available) Beware though... Deal Extreme are renown for slow delivery dx.com/p/z…136
