Good and not so good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GU10 LED BULB 5W WITH 24 X 5050 SMD CHIPS IN WARM WHITE ** HIGH QUALITY GU10 LED SPOT LAMP IDEAL FOR REPLACING 50W HALOGEN LIGHT BULB **
I had 3 of these and as other reviewers state, the light output is very good. The colour is pleasant, the coverage is uniform and the spread is nearly as wide as a standard halogen.
They are used in standard household situations and weren't left on over long periods. However, I have had 2 and a half fail over six months.
The first 2 failed in the mains converter. I took one failed unit apart as there were char marks on the outside of the case. The power converter circuit burned out badly but self extinguished, which was "helpful"! However, the LED, which is a 12V unit still works so the weakness is in the 240 to 12 volt converter and not the actual LED's.. or is it?
The third is still in place, but so far 5 of the 24 LED's have failed. This could be the actual LED's or due to poor construction of the actual LED circuit board. Either way, if any more LED bulbs on that unit fail, it will have to go.
Could I get replacements? Probably. Can I be bothered to pack them up and pay postage? Probably not as they were only £2.95.
I chose to find another supplier as I considered 2.5 out of three fails poor quality.
