Bought two of these bulbs but they dont seem to give much light out.Fantastic for background lighting.
Might help people to save on electricity.

1 watt isnt bright enough need at least 4w for good light

Only problem with these people is that they are twice the price you will pay on ebay.

I put 3led`s in a 4x50watt light bar bedroom light, looks ok as 4x50w was a bit oot,and 53w is a lot cheaper to run.

led will never replace tungsten halogen, but then they use a minute ammount of power.
these are fantastic at this price. hope my local has them

"...1 Watt led bulb. save a fortune on electricity."

Or save even more by turning the lights off! Seriously, a 1 Watt LED won't do much to light your room. Great price but be sure you know what you're buying!

You're almost certainly wrong, and LED will almost certainly replace halogen in the future! But they aren't a great solution at the moment for main lighting, nor are compact fluorescent GU10s that I've tried.

Great if you want to recreate the lighting used in Deckard's apartment in Blade Runner.

I used to have 3 50w in my porch replaced with 1w leds and give enough light and a cool blue light.

I'm using some 3.3w 60leds which I think are equivalent to about 35w (they claim 50w). beam is very wide which is great as I have 16 ceiling downlighters covering about the same sqm so they produce a good verall light level in the room but they would not for for 'spot' lighting certain objects. They did cost about £4 each tough but with 16 on the total power is about 50w rather than the 600-800w it would be with halogens...

A rough guide to brightness is, 1 watt led is equal to 10 watts light output.

sorry you disagree, but i live in the real world. cree leds are newer brighter higher lumen output per watt in comparison to tungsten, but its lux output you need.

Forget about these. They will not provide anywhere near enough light to compete with 50w halogen. Need 4.5-5 watts for this.
You get what you pay for right now with LEDs

Another who has obviously never actually used these. I can speak from real world experience. I have 6 in my office, replacing 6 halaogen 50w units. FANTASTIC. Had them 6 months. Used everyday for approx 10 hours. Zero warm up time and perform great. Blows me away to think of 6w vs 300w....

Bought 6 today, but when turned off they still illuminate slightly. I have other brands of 1 watt LED GU10's that cost me £10 each and they dont illuminate slightly when switched off at light switch. There must be something not quite right with these, and thats why they are £1 each and have been sold off because of the issues.

Never seen that problem at all with the units I have. Sounds like it could be more related to your light fittings or installation as there evidently appears to be electrical flow even when you swithc them off?

my bulbs illuminate when turned off also nothing wrong with my electrics nmot sure if i like these bulbs but they deff cheaper

Glad to hear it's not just my lights that are glowing. Our electrics are fine!! They must be rejects thats why Poundland have them.

This Deal is still alive in Poundland!
Bought some myself and, although they only consume 1 watt, they are pretty damn good!
How does one make this "uk hotdeal" live again?
