LAP LED Lamp ES 10W
Good value, bright
These are good lamps at a fair price. I got three to replace a mixed lamp/bulb arrangement in a tired looking existing kitchen fitting (it had two 60w traditional bulbs and one 14w CFL, eventually two of three had blown). Iâve cut my power consumption from 134w to 30w and get a much brighter even light than ever from the previous mixed set. They should pay for themselves in about a year. Theyâre described as warm white but are probably at the brighter end of the warm white range in terms of colour temperature (3k), however theyâre not ghastly over-bright like some blue-white LEDs can be.
Good for areas requiring bright working light like kitchens etc., but I probably wouldnât use for ambient lighting in lounge, bedrooms etc. without some taming/warming lamp shades.

LAP LED GLS Bulbs
3 Stars for value -- I still find screw and bayonet LED bulbs expensive all things considered when spotlights have come down so much more even though I bought 3 to get a bulk buy discount. I can't see a multi-pack [5, 6 or 10] option to make them more cost effective.
5 Stars for Performance -- Having researched the wattages, lumen valies and heat ratings, these are perfect -- bright and warm providing the ambient lighting we like for the space.
3 Stars for Reliability -- we won't be sure until we get at least 25,000 hours of usage.
We are in the process of changing all of the bulbs in the house to LED as the existing units fail.
Assuming the specification is met, they should pay for themselves in time.

I use these to replace the sodium filled 70w bulbs in my outside lamp (I removed all the switch gear and wired them to the light sensor)
these bulbs are not quite as bright but they are a much nicer white light instead of orange

Far better than the low energy halogen bulb it replaced. Full output with no warm up period. Cooler light better suited to reading and working.
Too soon to comment on life/reliability
