LAP GU10 LED Lamp with Reflector 330Lm 950Cd 5W
the future is bright !
I can't really rate reliability yet, but they are guaranteed 3 years and on the box estimated lifetime is 25 years so hopefully an end to ever changing the old GU10's. I have a light fitting in the kitchen which takes six GU10's so apart from the annoyance of one or bulbs being out I was keen to save on the electricity bills and 30W compared to 300W is quite a difference. Having had various not so good experiences with low energy replacements in the past I bought one of the as a test and was impressed enough to replace all six. For starters the light is brighter and whiter than the conventional bulbs and is full brightness from the start. Although the bulbs are a bit bigger they do not look silly in the fitting. One thing I did notice is that the light is more focussed and less diffuse then before so I had to do a bit of adjustment with the angles to reduce dark spots. This narrower beam may be an advantage or disadvantage depending on your application. Overall though I am pleased and I am convinced that LED lighting is the way to go.

Bought these to replace GU10's in the kitchen, easy replacement and even though they are rated at 50w equivalent the lights are a lot brighter and a better spread than the old GU10's, would recommend these for direct replacement, not to mention the savings on electricity!

Great , bright, white
These bulbs are excellent, very clear bright light with a good spread.
The description says they are warm white (3000k) and they are just warm. Not yellow and not cold white/blue.
