Fantastic value for Philips low-energy GU10 bulbs - very pleased,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips CorePro GU10 4-35 Watt LED 3000 K 36 D MV Spot Perfect Fit, Pack of 10, Warm White (Kitchen & Home)
Like many I suspect I was attracted to this offer from some of the discount notification websites and wondered if, at this price (£27.99 when I purchased), it was too good to be true. I am pleased to say this appears to be a bargain so I am very happy to have found this listing. Key details as follows:
Bulbs: These are individually presented boxed in retail packaging that details these to be 35W Halogen replacements. The bulbs themselves are pure white in terms of the outer housing so this can mean they stand out slightly when you use them in the typical chrome/brushed steel light fittings but, to me, they look fine. I have used these throughout the house and found the light output to be good. One such example is where I replaced 4 x GU10's in a fitting (found I had mixed these 4 between 50W and 35W!) and the LED's were a perfect replacement. Slightly less output than the halogens of course but totally acceptable and a nice light too between 'warm white' and a 'brilliant white'.
The lights are more directional than the ones they replaced but, for me, this is fine too. The light fitting I have is adjustable so I could move to suit - not sure how this will be for down lighters.
Of course the main reason for purchase of these is the low-energy use. My kitchen light fitting had a total of 170W of bulbs which have now been replaced with just 16W. Fantastic and look forward to paying EDF a few pennies less as a result! Bulb life is quoted at 5-years based on 4-hours use per day so, at this rate, they will more than pay for themselves through not buying more halogen bulbs alone.
The seller packaged the items well and sent using Royal Mail and all came through very quickly.
I didn't realise just how many GU10 fittings I have through the house so have managed to use all 10 but need a few more so, as I am so pleased with this, have just ordered another 10!
Overall a great product and fantastic value and highly recommended.
