Found 19th Oct
Reduced from £75 to £20. Out of stock but available to order.

This is a must cheaper way of buying large numbers of smart white spectrum GU10s than Hue (£30 each) or even Ikea (£12 each).

Go for ikeas instead, I've had no issues using them with my phillips hue hub. Not used these bulbs myself but the reviews around the internet speak for themselves.

Voted cold by mistake.... Decent price and I have Osrams working with my hue setup. Only downside was the app did not correctly match the bulb colour, but that won't matter on white only lamps.

I have IKEA ones myself, but they are more expensive and this is a "deal"

Also the IKEA ones have big limitations with hue themselves with regard to firmware versions, the app is a but rubbish and you can't use the remotes or dimmers with hue (annoyingly as the IKEA remotes are excellent and cheap)

I see what your saying...but I personally think it's better value to pay £1 extra and get 3 IKEA bulbs. Reading reviews from a few different retailers and it looks like these osram bulbs don't usually last very long and most people cannot connect these to their Phillips hue hub at all.
I didn't actually know that the ikea remotes don't work with the hue hub, something I'll look out for! I guess if you want the perfect experience with hue hub / app (right now) then your probably going to have to get hue bulbs.

Yep for now most of my IKEA bulbs are still on the IKEA bridge but it isn't ideal. I am hoping when everything converges on zigbee 3.0 they will all work together.

By the way the equivalent IKEA GU10 is £12 not £7 - these are tunable white / white spectrum, the cheaper IKEA GU10s are warm white. It's academic now but this deal was substantially cheaper if you are doing something like a kitchen (in my house I have about 40 GU10s, those in modern houses may well have more).

OOS but I dont think you can order..anymore? Only "email me when available" button

Indeed, it looks like they may be clearing stock and may not get them back in. Likely because Osram/Sylvania/whatever they are called are rebranding the line as Smart+ - I *think*!
