You wouldn't normally be in the market for these unless you already had the fittings that are compatible with them (due to their longer length). Post aimed at those, like me, that are looking to save on replacement bulbs.

Having said that, I've had them in the kitchen for over a year, not had any break or the problems mentioned other than I agree they do need to warm up for a while before dimming them.

Very low price for these but I won't be spending my own hard earned on them.

Normal 50w GU10 lights are about £3 so this is a bargain even if they don't last as long as expected. They'll still last longer than normal ones that always seem to go. Plus you'll save 76% in energy costs.

I use the standard version of these. Reviews say the dimmable function is poor, so while its a good price I think the product will dissapoint?

I thought these were related to Megaman the videogame character

£3 each is way over the top. Lots of deals out there, incl 2 for £1 at Poundland.

11W at 80% saving is 55W equivalent, but it says replaces 35W. What's going on?

I got 10 of them off ebay for £14 last year! 2 blew within minutes, the others take a while to warm up but once there are great.

EDIT: Actually mine were the non-dimmable ones.

No idea, proper information is ]here

Sorry to revisit an OLD post! Anyone know an alternative to these, i.e. the longer length GU10 with dimmable function? I have 8 of these and their longevity is appalling (as most of the reviews testify), would never buy them again at any price, but don't know what to replace them with.

I have six fitted in the kitchen that have lasted so long that I can't remember when I last replaced one. But, a few years ago I remember I had quite a few that broke pretty quickly, I think they have improved since then. Maybe you had old stock? The newer design has a different pattern on the glass I think.

Having said that, like you, I'd still be interested to know if there are any alternatives.
