Frantically trying to reason a place at home I could use this...
I bought 8 of these when £21 just for the bulbs then sold the fittings on eBay for £7 each, making the bulbs £14

Doing the same with these could make the bulbs as little as £12
OP u may want to add that this is the White Ambiance bulb also....

Just my $0.02:
I recently upgraded 16 GU10 bulbs to Phillips Hue.

I saw this product (the milliskin) when I was researching, but I couldn't find a justifiable reason for them. The reviews seem to state the plastic fitting is very low quality. So bulb wise I just got 16 of the standard Philips Hue GU10's in Argos (£10 per bulb):

I checked them, but they're reviewing at the higher price, considering this is similar to buying the bulb alone, it's worth a punt for me personally. Due to Argos limiting to 10 per purchase, I've ordered 10 twice and 3 once, I'll collect the 3 first to inspect and if they're adequate I'll pop back for the rest

Poor reviews will be based on the expectation of the item at the price point they paid (£33+) most likely
yes the holder is plastic, yes it is not a smooth movement, but if like me it was a much cheaper way of getting a White Ambiance bulb, flog the lamp holders on ebay and buy the fittings below, they look fantastic agains the ceiling and are really minimalist - the Hue ones are almost a gloss white plastic and with the black inner, will draw the eye, unlike the Sebson ones

Operates over WiFi? Are these not hub based??

EDIT looks like the description is just a mess
Edited by: "jamhops" 16th Aug
These are ridiculous.

Just buy downfire holders that are discreet and look great they the hue gu10 bulbs in packs of 2.
Would it be a clear swap with my existing spot lights ? Just rewiring of a fitting unit needed ? Or they might be different in sizes ?

Indeed.

These are an absolute rip-off
It's just a standard Hue GU10 bulb inside one of the cheapest plastic downlighter fittings I've seen in a long time - you even have to assemble it (i.e. insert the spring clips) yourself. Not worth the money. So much cheaper to get a standard downlight and buying the bulb separately - which is what I've done after this trial purchase. I was expecting something integrated: not a standard build + downlighter surround. The wiring isn't even modular!!!
Heat, but apparently not suitable for use in a bathroom
Just had 13 of mine cancelled by Argos...

It’s a White Ambience bulb, ie COOL White instead of the big standard warm white
If you already have the fitting then it’s worth keeping a look at curry’s eBay as the two pack white ambiance is 33.99 on there normally. For itsmattyjay, unless you really need them to change white temperature the 8 pack for 80 quid from Argos is the best value and will allow you to dim them, plus fitting is as simple as replacing the existing bulbs unless you have the complete units. Once the standard bulbs are installed you can control all of them providing you have the hub. I love Philips Hue stuff!

Surely the "Ambience" lamps have a colour temp from warm white through to cool white...

Correct, whereas the normal “white” Hue are a warm white which is dimmable, no white colour variance,

They are, normal Hue white is only dimmable - if this suits your purpose then the 10pack at Argos for £80 is best value, but I tried these in kitchen and not really bright enough, although some feel the Ambiance ones are too “clinical
I really like Hue stuff, got loads of it. But I wouldn't buy their GU10s. Of I needed tunable GU10s I'd buy Innr's version. If only needed regular 2700k I'd buy Ikea's cheap versions.

Definitely need the white, also I'm converting the standard spotlights (not GU10 currently) hence it seemed good value for me. Shame I won't be getting them now as I can only get 10, the other 13 I need were cancelled by Argos and now it states there's none in stock for delivery in my area.

I'm keeping my order of 10 incase more come available but I'm assuming they're limiting supply due to resellers, which is fair I suppose...
I would have been all over these, however my downlights are connected to my ceiling in some kind of ninja way which means that they simply can not be removed ever.

They are just sealed like a bugger. I reckon I would need to go from the room above to get access to the springs.

Surely if you remove the bulb, you should be able to get your fingers in to pry at leas one of them up and slowly pull and release from the ceiling?
