    Deals on good energy saving spot lights

    Has anyone got any info on where to buy good quality energy saving spot light bulbs (GU10) - not the the cheap ones from China that give out yellow lighting, but similar to those sold by Megaman. Oh, and they have to be able to be used on a dimmer switch.

    Hope that's not to much to ask.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, but these aren't the energy saving type. They usually cost around £15 per bulb. If you have quite a few, it starts turning into a major purchase.

    Cheers anyway

    Never used the company so dunno if they are a good trader, but they claim to be ethical and all that. Found them via google. Couldn't see the delivery charge, but think there is one.

    The non dimmable looks a good price. 15'000hours is very good considering the GU10 format causes heat issues for compact flourescents technology.

    I am tempted by these myself especially considering they are available in 4000k colour. Its a shame i'm gonna need about 25 bulbs. £150 vs £10 for the screwfix cheapo bulbs makes it difficult to justify the initial cost.

    My kitchen takes 6 50w GU10's and I get them either from poundland (£1 for 2) or tesco value ones - about 55p each.

    Thanks, but these are just the regular halogen that cost so much to run. The one's I am after are led type that cost a fraction of the price to run - hence the price of each bulb - I guess you can't have your cake and eat it.

    I got mine from screwfix. I got about 30 for £12

    Thanks and rep added

    Thanks, that looks like the best price i'v seen. I found the dimmable ones for £9.98 each here:

    I know exactly what you mean about justifying the cost. I need 24 of them. At almost £10 a pop thats £250.

    These are meant to pay off in the long run, and they are enviro friendly and all that.
