I nearly creamed my pants when I saw this, then realised they aren't Hue.

So it's cold from me
It would be a better deal if it was *under* HALFPRICE

Troll.....or maybe just an idiot....I think probably the former.
This seems a good deal too 5 "cool white" for £7.99.

Heat by the way OP - thanks for the find
Non-dimmable...just when I thought I hit the jackpot. Great deal for those who don't use dimmer switches

​The dimmable ones are these at 3 for £6. I bought a few a few months ago but seems out of stock to me. Maybe you can find a local with stock.

thanks for the find, amazing price!
When these work, they're great, but do keep the receipt. I'm just exchanging my 3rd Philips GU10 LED bulb in a year. They have quality issues for sure. Googling the part number comes up with other people having the same issue, so not alone.

Im more inclined in believing they just want you to buy another and not think about it too much.
are these daylight/cool white? or warm white?

This is a relector bulb.
Just ordered 5, cheers for the heads-up OP

This is a reflector bulb.


The LAP and Philips units are good. I've got some LAP units on dimmers, they all seem fine. Very nice light like the Halogens not at all line the cheap LED GU10s or CFLGU10 really nice. As has been said keep the receipt. If you have trouble with your dimmer not working, I had this only on one set of lights at home as the total load was under 40W after moving to LED and I had to switch to a newer dimmer I got this one screwfix.com/p/v…91f its programmable so you can set the minimum brightness onces (this is the level just above when the lamps start to flicker) then the whole phyical rotationof dimmer is avaiable for dimming and you no longer have to hunt around for the minimum. Interestingly the LAP and Philips units worked fine with my existing dimmers. Thanks OP and Endothecat for pointing you need a Varilight VPRO model that supports LEDs (Min load <40W and programmable minimum brightness (stops flickering on low setting) and user selected lead / trail / other dimming modes.

Thanks for this always useful to have options: HB might be more local for some folk. Screwfix might be simpler for returns and topcashback for click and collect. .

Ah thanks! the link wasn't opening for me.

Don't like warm white, as I'm trying to replace all with cool or daylight white.
would it be worth it to change working 50w halogens for these? Only used approx an hour max a day. Cheers

1 hour of 50w per day is 18.25 KWh per year, or about £2.75 a year, whereas these will cost a tenth of that. So yes, these will pay for themselves in less than a year.

Possibly, but failing within a year is quite bad. They don't get anymore than an hour use a day. They're really pushing it if that's what they're aiming for.

​You need a Varilight VPro, not the one you linked. It specifically says in the manual it's not suitable for LEDs.
I get mine from the Poundshop.
