better than expected
Bought 6 of these to replace 50w halogen in my kitchen. Had previously tried fluorescent type but to slow to warm up and not comparable light output. Saw these and read the reviews and decided to give them a try, glad I did!. Brightness on a par with the standard GU10's as others have noted but have to say light spread (beam) not as wide in comparison hence 4 stars on overall rating. Given the energy saving over the standard bulbs a worthwhile compromise and given the guarantee provided given 5 stars for reliability with the peace of mind I can fall back on it if needs be. Considering purchasing another 8!

Bought a number of LAP LEDs from Screwfix. They are not the best quality I have used but are a good price.
One was dead out of the box and another box had clearly been opened before and contained an old halogen lamp instead of the LED I expected.
Screwfix replaced both but I had to waste my time and money travelling back to exchange them so I am not terribly impressed. Next time I'll buy my LEDs from a specialist and pay a little more for peace of mind.

Not quite direct replacement
They look a bit odd if you've got several halogens in a room and you just replace one with an LED. That's because the LED's are brighter, whiter and more focused.
Also I found if you tried to dim them right down, the LED stayed brighter than the halogens then suddenly went out - in other words, it's not a linear response. Maybe I need to replace my dimmer switch, but I can only recommend them if you're replacing all your halogens in one go.
