Rated 2 out of 5Â by belfonso 25000 hour joke
Replaced half of them within a year, the 25000 hour (or even 5year) suggestion is hopelessly optimistic. Screwfix replaced the first one, but Sylvania don't want to know after that. Trying Osram version, see if it lasts a bit longer, shouldn't be too difficult!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by EwanB Good but some issues
I bought 6 of these for a new bathroom installation and was delighted. In terms of brightness and colour they are better than any others I have tried but after 3 months one started to flicker. I have now replaced 3 due to flickering but have not had any further issues.
Looking at other reviews it seems if you get a good one you're in luck but if you're unlucky it will fail relatively quickly. All of them were replaced under warranty so no additional cost but would have been nice if they'd all just worked the first time round.

From having a new Kitchen installed this is the third time in 18 months that we have had to change this type of LED bulb. However it is not easy to find until I tried the internet and it showed Screwfix.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by robbo56 how long will the other 5 last
Purchased 6 of these LED GU10 one year ago.
Very bright ,equivalent to a 50 watt bulb BUT
First one flickered then died today. 25000 hour rated so even if left on continously should have lasted 2.9 years. Only used when needed in a kitchen. 5 year guarantee so will take it back.
