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.
