Robus GU10 LED Lamp 625Lm Cd 8W
Good and bad
These are great, white lights (Good in a kitchen for that clean effect). On the downside, like an earlier reviewer, I had one fail on me, which as they are touted as being long life and not cheap was something of a vexation! SF replaced with no quibbles and we are back with lots of sparkly light

Very bright for a while
I bought a set of 4 of these bulbs. When I first switched them on they were excellently bright and I was very pleased. Then, 5 days later they began to fail one by one so I ended up swapping them for something else. Very disappointing - in my experience, these faults are either down to poor thermal management or getting brightness by overdriving lesser chips to save manufacturing costs. Hopefully it was just a bad batch but you wouldn't expect that from such an expensive product.

Great - but first batch dodgy?
I bought 6 for my kitchen. The 4000K cool white colour was not too blue and they really are as good as a 50w standard GU10. These transformed room!
But in less than a week they started to fail. Flashing on/off or running with a dim yellow glow.
The good news, after 5 replacements (done over several months) I have had no further failures (I dated the replacements). The last original lamp failed today, So I am hopeful this was a batch issue with the first lot of lamps..

Lasted about 4 months
A lot of money to pay for a light bulb that lasts for about 4 months. It now flashed on and off 2 times a second. The colour of light and brightness it gave off was good while it lasted but it must still be cheaper to use halogen bulbs that cost pence and pay the electricity than pay over Â£10 for these LED bulbs that just don't last.
