High quality, good looking lamp. Due to the fact that i work in the construction industry & in particular electrical engineering it’s a widely recognized fact that when installing lamps of any variety, it’s a far better idea to spend a little extra on a reputable brand as more often than not you will save money & this lamp would appear to be the perfect example. I’ve sometimes chucked a super-market or diy store branded lamp into a fitting only to find it blowing far sooner than it should & occasionally had lamps actually damaging an expensive light fitting – having installed these philips spots in a john lewis kitchen fitting i’m more than pleased with their performance & additionally, the design is fantastic & even though you only really see the front face they look wonderful set into the fitting. Unless something proves me wrong in future i’d definitely opt for these lamps. At the right price of course.

A great item – philips are the best. We have so many of these lights in our house, both of this fitting and mr16. I have been methodically replacing them over a period of times based upon the room usage and quantity of bulbs, tempered by what i could afford at any one time. In order i have replaced 15 bulbs in our kitchen, 6 in the utility room, 6 in the family bathroom, 6 in our en suite shower room; these rooms get used the most with the lights switched on. Thankfully we have wall lights on the landing, hall and 1 bedroom. I am in the process of replacing the bulbs in the two other bedrooms (6 in one and 12 in the other) our dining room (6) and downstairs bathroom (6). This is the very last gu10 for a spot above the wardrobe in our bedroom, the remainder being mr16. This bulb provides us with exactly what we need, a powerful beam of light, which is actually warm in colour; despite being advertised as such, not all of them are and thankfully at a reasonable price, although a bit cheaper would be better. I have to say that we have purchased so many of these bulbs now that i feel qualified to say that whilst these items are more expensive than their competitors, they are the best. They are well made, fit perfectly, do not have sharp edges, light instantly and i have no doubt that they will last for the advertised lifespan, although we are nowhere near getting there yet.

Good light, reliable, but expensive. I am gradually replacing all of the standard gu10s in my house with their led counterparts – not initially because of the energy saving but because i was tired of seemingly constantly replacing standard gu10sthe philips units have worked well so far, with no failures, and the light that they give is bright, smooth and certainly not a stepback from a normal gu10. One thing i have definitely noticed is that the fittings are a lot, lot cooler to the touch with these led units – my old kitchen spot fittings had been discoloured by the heat of normal gu10s, heat that is literally a waste of moneymy only reservation is that these are a lot more expensive than a standard gu10, but they are cheaper to run and a lot more convenient as they haven’t so far needed to be changed at all.

Philips have made good progress in their high-output led gu10 replacements, and these are arguably the best yet. I have the predecessor to this, and side-by-side you can see the extra light output which makes them very close to a traditional halogen 50w in luminosity. The fact that they are consuming 5w now instead of the 6w of the predecessor is a bonus. These bulbs are still rather pricey though. I notice that they now label the lighting as:2700 – very warm white3000 – warm white4000 – cool whitewhereas previously they labelled it as warm white; neutral white then cool white. For anyone trying to figure out what is best for them, i dislike 4000 kelvin colour temperature in a home environment as it creates a sort-of other-worldly atmosphere that i find strange. 2700k is definitely the ‘warmer’ of the two others, but some people might pick up colour tinges. I like the 3000k temperature for gu10s as it is a nice neutral colour, without being too yellowy. I don’t use gu10s on a dimmable circuit so i can’t comment on their advertised ‘increased dimmable range’.

I was unsure if this small bulb would be bright enough to light my room. I was very surprised as it gave a nice light and was also super easy to fit. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

The cri90 colour rendering is very good, much better than the earlier versions from even just a year ago. Unsure about the heat-sinking design on this product but time will tell if this affects the lifespan or not.

A happy low energy consumer that looks like a halogen :). Fantastic little light from philips. The only make & model that i could find to give a ‘halogen’ effect on the throwing of light. Yes they are pricier than many others but given their life expectancy i couldn’t be happier with my decision. Energy saving alone should recuperate the costs in 1-2years and no more bulb changing to boot. No regrets and a happy lower energy consumer :).

I think these spots are better than smd lights. I think these spots are better than smd lights. The spread is more than adequate and at working height the light is still worthwhile whilst smd have spread all over the place.

Excellent product; good clear light displayed instantly on turning on. Also good to the eye when not switched on.

I’m very impressed by the build quality and the light produced by this bulb. I cannot speak to the longevity, but it’s been good so far. Much better value in the long run than the cheaper ones that always seem to die after only a few months use.

The energy saving cannot be underestimated here. The energy saving cannot be underestimated here. In the past leds used to be fairly low on brightness and were a bit clumsy. Nice and bright, you can feel quality in the design and for only 5. 5w in consumption you get great bright light.

Since all of the light comes from the small clear window in the centre of the bulb (whereas in a normal bulb it’s from the whole of the face) it is dazzling by comparison.

Not sure there is a great deal to say about a light bulb. Philips is a reliable brand. Was a good fit in our kitchen strip lighting. Produced good light and hasn’t stopped working yet. High quality and would purchase again.

Happy to swap from halogen bulbs. . I have a number of 50w spotlights sunk in the ceiling of my kitchen and bathroom. They are currently all halogen 50w bulbs, so it seemed a good energy efficient move to try out this 5w led variety instead. I also tried this other brand of led spotlight auraglow 5w cob led gu10 light bulb, warm white, 50w eqv – retrofit and compared all three together. Both of the led spotlights fitted nicely into the ceiling fittings. With the lights off, the auraglow looked most different to the regular halogen bulbs as it has a marked white surround. With the lights on, the auraglow white surround was much less obvious, but the philips stood out more as the area emitting the light was smaller than the other bulbs (you can see it by looking at the picture). Assuming that you’re not being slightly weird (like me) and spending all your time looking at ceiling spotlights, then both led lights gave off a good light with a nice warm quality, and i wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference without peering at the ceiling. I would definitely recommend these as an investment for their energy saving potential. If you think you are going to be bothered by minor differences in appearance between your old halogen bulbs and the new led ones, you will just have to plan on changing all your bulbs in one go.

Excellent quality led spotlight bulb, but a bit expensive. If you’re looking for a top quality gu10 led bulb with a narrow beam, and you’re willing to pay more for it, then this is an excellent choice. The good:=========- very modern and neutral design that will fit well in most rooms. The matt silver outer section that is most visible will go very nicely in any silver/chrome or black light fitting, and shouldn’t clash against other neutral colours. – instant brightness with no delay once turned on. – nice warm light (2700k colour temperature) works very well in a relaxed living room or kitchen area. – very low running costs given the brightness, with a relatively high light output of 350 lumens for only 5. 5 watts of power consumption. – can be used with a dimmer, which makes it excellent for replacing traditional halogen bulbs in a dimmed lighting circuit. – very focussed narrow beam of light (40 degree beam angle) makes it an ideal spotlight bulb for kitchen work surfaces.

I received this bulb from the vine programme, as i was keen to see what advances have been made in making decent, low-energy spotlights. In terms of tech, this is a massive leap forward in performance – the light from this cool-to-the-touch bulb is bright and clear, and sits perfectly alongside the other (standard) gu10 50w bulbs in my kitchen. There is literally no observable difference in the quality of light. It clearly saves energy by staying cool and focusing it’s energy more effectively than the old tech, and if it lasts as long as is claimed i shouldn’t have to replace it for quite a long time. However, i can’t help wondering at that price-tag. Why make something so obviously beneficial to the environment so expensive?. Can it really cost that much to develop and manufacture these things??. Certainly, it’s rivals seem similarly over-priced, though i notice the price is slowly dropping. I guess like anything new, it’ll eventually replace the old, electricity-hungry bulbs entirely.

Excellent but you may have to change your dimmer switch to accomodate. At last, a decent led spot that is a viable alternative to the energy consuming halogen dino-bulbs of yesteryear and more importantly lives up to its claims of equivalent light output. This is the second generation of 50w equivalent led’s from philips and they have managed to reduce the power usage by 0. 5w whilst maintaining the high luminosity index. The light is a warm white akin to the original halogens which i prefer for areas outside of the kitchen, with the spread being slightly wider and more uniform. The bulb itself feels well made and is identical in size to the halogen it replaced, which means no problems with retrofitting into older down-light fittings. A lower heat output, lower frequency of ‘blowing’ and the advantage of not tripping your fuse box mcb’s makes these bulbs the ones for the future. Light output is instantaneous with the added bonus of being dimmable, which the majority of led bulbs haven’t been up until now. On this point please be aware that most older style dimmer switches require a minimum load to function eg 40- 220w without causing any flickering or other issues, so if you intend changing your bulbs then make sure that your existing dimmer switch is up to the job of handling a lower load. (eg if you have a dimmer of load handling 40-220w and there are 4x50w existing halogens then the load is 200w whereas if you change them to 4x6w led’s then you only have a load of 24w which would cause problems as its below the recommended load handling of the dimmer switch) thankfully there are now specialist low load trailing edge dimmer switches that are made to accommodate the lower loads from led bulbs, so just be aware that you may have to factor in the cost of a replacement dimmer switch/electrician to get the use out of these new bulbs.
