5.0 out of 5 stars I have seen the light, 6 July 2013
This review is from: Philips GU10 35 Watt MV Master LED Spot 4, 2700 K, Warm White (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am gradually weaning myself off 50W halogen GU10s and have up-to-now been put off by LED's inconsistency in bulb sizing, output and pricing as the technology has been developing over the past few years. But I think we are now at a turning point and Philips' latest range of "Master" LED GU10s seem to be the most convincing argument yet.

I opted for the 2700K 'Warm White' as I personally feel that 'Cool White' has no place in a home environment (feel free to argue), and this 4W (35W equivalent) bulb does the trick nicely. In a bank of 4x bulbs where the other three are currently 50W halogens, it is making me wonder whether I really need the 50W equivalent, as the slightly tighter beam of the LED compensates for some of the loss in light output.

These bulbs are rated at 25,000 hours, which is good, although Philips also do a range that is rated at 40,000 hours so check if they are within budget before committing. They are dimmable which is a plus, although I am not using this bulb on a dimming circuit at the moment, it's good to know that it can do it if I choose.

Although £16 (at time of review) seems like a lot for a bulb, they do make senses when viewed over a longer period of time. Not only do they draw a lot less electricity, but they also greatly out-last their halogen forefathers, as well as not putting out the sort of heat that halogens do.

Thumbs up from me.
