What mount are they?

Voted hot

Which tesco did you find them at?

Voted hot for price, but just to let everyone be aware these don't last long. I bought a box in October and I'd say that 90% of them have over the last three months have failed. So great price but maybe a false economy like cheap bin bags (_;)

get on eBay £1 each for led equivalent . will never burn out

You need to spend at least a few quid a bulb to get good LED ones, the £1 bulbs are pretty dire unless you like the showroom look.

Last GU10s I bought from Tesco were 31p a pair, about three weeks ago and they had hundreds of them piled up.

hi, i think its 50mm

The 8 packs are £8.50, not 4 packs.

I find the cheap ones are just as good/bad as the expensive ones. I was under the impression these things were supposes to last years, but I seem to go through them quite quickly.

Good price

Replace with good but expensive LED equivalents (400+ lumens), I've had some of my GU10s in the kitchen for years, forget the energy saving although significant, at a blow rate of every three months, they've probably worked out cheaper than buying halogen over that time.

I lose at least one halogen a month, even the mini flourescent ones keep blowing, so am wary of LEDs.

Ive been wanting Gu10 Leds for ages but cheapest I can find is £8 for 3 on ebay.

I just saw a pack of 12 go for £29, dunno if they are any good though! 4w but only 60 degree beam, item number was 271128973342. Seems you need to check the colour you need (type of white!), andgle of beam and number of lumens, as none are the same.

pack of 4 for 8.20! I don't think so

£7.50 at Stockton-on-Tees Tesco Extra in store. Bought a pack Wednesday. Loads left.

to make your halogens last dont touch them with bare hands/fingers. install using clean cloth / gloves and they wont need replacing so often.

though led is the way to go just bcos of energy costs.

same in seacroft leeds extra, for about 6 wks now. loads left there too

I paid £7.50 for some of these and had 4 blow in less than three weeks (one lasted less than an hour!), took them back for a refund. Should last over a year each if the 2000Hrs average life stated on the box was true.

Bought some Philips Gu10's which are on offer at Sainsburys instead.

Got a 2 pack of GU10's from Poundland yesterday if anyone only wants a couple.

Spot on with that advice. I've wondered if grease from cooking causes issues with them as our home office bulbs last twice as long as the same bulbs in the kitchen.
