Zero noise despite any level of dimming. Zero noise despite any level of dimming. The colour replicates a 50 watt halogen perfectly. I have also bought cheaper tcp (from asda or homebase) dimmable bulbs, however these bulbs are very loud. If you are not too bothered by the buzzing noise noise then perhaps the tcp are a better choice since they are cheaper and come with 3 year guarantee. However if you are after maximum performance and quality these bulbs are probably better. I bought the bulbs when amazon had the 4 for 3 offer.

Works absolutely fine with my dimmer lights. Works absolutely fine with my dimmer lights. We buy for the shop and is connect to automatic switch on-off to.

Better than many led dimmable bulbs. Some leds used to have an ‘interesting’ view of being dimmable, with not all that much variability. These give a good response to the dimmer switch, and give a pleasant light as well when turned up.

Great light output, flawed design. Great bulbs in terms of lighting produced. Only problem is that the glass/plastic surface where the light shines through is not smooth so the suction bulb removal tool will not work in holding the bulb. For these light bulbs that design flaw is pretty much unforgivable as gu10’s tend to be fitted into recessed light fittings for ceiling lights as well as external garden lighting where you can’t get your fingers around the circumference of the bulb while fitting it.

Good quality but a bit yellow. Never sure why ‘warm white’ varies so much. Most people just want a halogen swap. The lights are a much better quality than cheaper alternative brands like auraglow (i’ve tried almost all of them and reliability is a real problem). My only niggle is that the warm white is a touch yellow compared to other brands. 5w is at least a match to the 50w halogens and i would have said brighter. Interestingly the dimmable phillips gu10s in warm white are noticeably less yellow. I would add that i am ueber picky about light colour so this will probably only be relevant to those of you considering the impact on their wall colour and furnishings etc.

Philips LED Classic 5.5 W GU10 Glass Dimmable Spot Light (Replacement for 50 W Halogen Spot) – Warm White, Pack of 24 : Dimmable gu10 led buib’s i’ve tried a few. . And these are the best price/quality i’ve found. I’ve had a farcical experience with gu10 led dimmables i’ve been through 2 types of dimmer module and 4 brands of different prices and quality. After trying lumilife, lumin tekco and allcam bulbs with varilight v-pro and aurora zero cross dimmer modules. These philips bulbs are the only ones that don’t buzz, whine or flicker.

I’m happy with these because. I’m happy with these because, not only do they resemble traditional halogen bulb so are good for ‘exposed’ lamps, but they dim well (we are using the vari-light dimmer switches).

Using in conjunction with downlight converter kits (also purchased on here) to replace the numerous r80 spotlights in my house. Work really well with my dimmer in lounge, so have re-purchased two more packs for other parts of the house. Hopefully will save a lot on energy bills with these.

I replaced all my bulbs with leds, and while i’ve been very happy with standard light fittings, i’m not as impressed with these. Compared to the eco halogen lamps they replaced, they give much more distinct pools of light, and when one is pointed directly at you it’s quite dazzling. The dimming is also inferior, as they have a much more limited range and flicker on low settings. I think this might have something to do with the type of dimmer switch, but struggling to find good advice.

Really well made compared to b&q leds that have been replaced by these. No more flickers when used in conjunction with a good proper led dimmer switch.

Flickers slightly when on lowest setting on dimmer switch. . I purchased these to replace my standard halogen bulbs in the kitchen which has a standard dimmer switch connected. The brightness it gives is amazing (better than the equivalent halogen bulbs) and knowing it’s generated from leds is great as it is saving me electricity over the halogen bulbsi have noticed a couple things though:–the bulbs do not dim to a low brightness, i would say they dim slightly but the room is still lit up – this is not an issue for me as i tend to have full brightness. -when the dimmer switch is at the lowest setting – still quite bright – i have noticed some of the bulbs flicker slightly. This disappears when the switch is turned up. I never got this issue when using the halogen bulbs against my existing dimmer switch. On the positive, it is extremely bright and the colour is definitely a warm white which is what i was after. Overall, i am happy with the bulbs and would recommend it to anyone who has a simple on off switch. For anyone who has a dimmer switch, bear in mind that it might flicker on the lowest setting. You may need to purchase a new dimmer switch which is suitable for leds.

These are a perfect replacement for halogens – lots of leds out there. These are a perfect replacement for halogens – lots of leds out there are not. These also match the 50w output you expect, too.

I’ve tried lots of supposedly dimmable leds before i got. I’ve tried lots of supposedly dimmable leds before i got these, they all seemed to strobe at low settings causing everyone to get dizzy. I paid a bit more for these but they dim perfectly, i’ve replaced 12 of our bulbs with these now and have had no problems.

Excellent dimmable leds – i used 4 with a varilight jqp401w led dimmer switch. I bought 4 of these for my bathroom because i like to relax in the hot bath with dimmed lights. I used this dimmer switch: “varilight jqp401w led dimmer switch” and it worked perfectly with these lights (but it does take a second for the lights to come on after pressing the switch). These leds dim right down to almost nothing.

Brighter, whiter and amazing wattage savings. Direct replacements for my old gu10 halogens so fitting took seconds.
