Great buy and Osram a good name for bulbs.

110 lumens? Are you kidding me?

lol 1.6w X)

130 lumens is about 8 watts so quite a dim light

Can any of you experts please help? Looking for some good quality, energy efficient LED GU10 bulbs (around 12)? Rather pay extra and get some better quality ones offering good value.

Using GE 50w 240v GU10 Halogen bulbs at the moment, which I guess are pretty expensive to run.

​I use TLC 5W GU10s. they use led chips, not COB, so don't look as good as some others when off, but the give a nice even spread of light and out perform 35W and 40W incandescent lamps and possibly 50W ones too. They are about £5 each plus the dreaded. Not particularly cheap, but I'm very happy with them. They come in warm white and daylight.

Guess you've been lucky, all mine from that company blew within a four month period.

Thanks for your help gang. Will review all of the above. I have also noticed the following one which won an award. How does this compare?

Which colour do you guys advise out of daylight white, warm white and cool white for a kitchen?

Thanks in advance

I was going to post the exact same bulbs. I purchased a pack of 4 of these last year and have been going solid since. I opted for the warm white version as I didn't want my bedroom being too bright, and as I have a rail with 'arms' I can direct all bulbs in any direction I use. As they tend to overlap each other I've found they cover a small / medium sized room very well. One of the reasons I chose these bulbs was due to the glowing reviews, plus Which Magazine had pretty much rated these the top GU10's to buy. I'm not going to argue.

amazon.co.uk/Int…LG/

The price tends to fluctuate on these but they're back down to the price I paid. If you need more bulbs, then the pack of 10 makes a more obvious choice, even if you need spares. But with a 3 year warranty, they should last a while.

Owned various from long life and they are ANYTHING but long life. Most have blown in less than a year.

Cool white looks unnatural and synthetic, will make your kitchen look like a morgue or something out of an early 70s sci fi movie.

I always fit the 4 or 5 watt LAP ones from screwfix. I have fitted about 500 across various jobs and have had no failures. Very bright and crisp light as well.

Was about to post the same product until I read the comments. Same here. Best ones I have bought & none have blown in about a year so far.

These in the 9w dimmable version, very bright and are a true 50w halogen (in warm white) or better equivalent. In fact when i changed over a rail of 8 from 50w halogen to these, I could have left out 2 and still have had the same coverage. The seller is great, I had set of his in a older version and had one blow after 14 months, just emailed him and he put the cost straight back into my paypal, no debate.

The Poundland ones are "Electrek" - a phantom brand made especially for Poundland.

From personal experience, plus many reports on here and other forums, you're lucky if they last more than 6 weeks. And Poundland won't refund or replace if they fail after 14 days.

Just bought a 10 pack of 9w for testing (thanks). Normally use Aurora 7w which are awsome quality just not bright enough, £10 a pop and too directional.

1.6w is a joke though (downvoted)

Let me know what you think of them, they are the best I have bought to date and I have had a few.

I bought these Sebson (German etc) for 3.5 each in September 2014 and they're still going strong.

Bought 2 for £1 from poundland today gu10 35w... So far so good

Based on the heat given to this post, I imagine a lot of people don't know how bright (dim) 110 lumens is!

Not LED you didn't.

I've used the LAP ones from screw fix over most of my house and no failures in nearly two years. I have some gu10, bayonet, screw, mini screw and have even used these in outdoor lights too. If buy bulk screw fix normally offer them slightly cheaper the more you buy too and also offer multipacks.

Note don't waste your time with anything less than 330 lumens (400+ is better) unless you want to sit in the dark.

Warm White is a nice colour as its a little tiny bit yellow rather than pure white. Much nicer light than traditional energy saving bulbs.

With the whole house done my electric bill has decreased by about £40-50 a year, not a huge amount but worth it (note we had energy saving bulbs before, if going from traditional bulbs saving will be a lot greater!

I purchased from b&q 5 dial led pack, gu10 for 14 quid 8.7 watt each, and they are so bright you cant look directly at them. Everyone comments and asks where i purchased. Screwfix 5 packs at 9.99 are also good

Astonishing how little some people understand light bulbs!

To you, I think warm white will make your home look like a nicotine stained pub though to each their own. ;-) I only use daylight at home though life would be boring if we were all the same.

COB LEDs are nice looking and good quality, but pretty expensive. I'm gradually going over to these.

Agreed, we have them all over the house and they are perfect. Much cheaper now than they were originally as well.
