My new house used to have 4 x 50W GU10 downlighters in the kitchen, about 2 years ago i replaced them with low energy GU10's. Not thinking at the time that they're probably not all made equal i just bought a set of 5 off ebay for £24. They're a little bit dimmer than the normal halogen bulbs which i can live with to an extent however they take an absolute age to light up, i'm talking around 2 or 3 mins to become fully lit (they start off pink) & i'm now finding when i walk into the kitchen i either put the dining room light on or put the cooker hood lights on (2 x 40w) which is completely defeating the object. Can anyone recommend replacement bulbs that dont cost an absolute fortune, give out a similar light to the halogens & have a decent beam range? Realise i might be asking too much here. I've seen the Zenigata LED bulbs which get rave reviews and seem to tick all the boxes but they cost around £25 each which would take a few decades to recoup in saved electrcitity costs.
