    Looking for 5 bulbs gu10 fitting or 4 mr16 fitting
    I currently have 50w halogen so the LEDs have to be powerful so there's no difference in light output.
    There's lots on eBay but I wanted a good brand maybe someone has some left over from a recent project maybe..

    If it helps I have tcp branded from homebase they are very very good, only 4w each but put out about 480 lumens each, so I've gone from 300watts to 24watts in the kitchen, also have there b22 10w bulbs fro the rest of the house, get down there when they have there 15% off...

    Best thing about homebase is if you don't like them, just take them back..good luck.

    Hi
    I use the Phillips Master 10W led's
    They are equivalent to 50W and have built in drivers and cooling fans so are plug and play :)
    They have a long warranty too.
    Watch which colour you go for as the warmer whites are better in bedrooms and the colder whiter lights I use I the kitchen and bathroom as they are brighter.
    Hope this helps!

    I have around 15 Philips GU10 LED lamps left over as went for an integral fitting in the end as it suited us better, a couple are used but have had little use as we soon changed the entire fitting, but the majority are new and boxed. If interested then I can sell them individually or as a bulk lot. These are the GU10 dimmable version too.

    They are equivalent on brightness to normal halogen dichroic 50W GU10 lamps which will be a 3000k colour, the 2700k will look warmer in a living room or hall or landing and the 4200k will be brighter and ideal for kitchens or offices, anywhere you need to see what your doing etc. the Toshiba LEDs are brighter than the philips equivalent.
    However they will save a fortune on electricity as draw 7W as opposed to 50W for the same output and are a lot cooler too!!

    Well I need at least 5 GU10 for the bathroom
    So it's looking like the Phillips 4200k
    Will they fit in the standard fitting with previous wiring?
    Most importantly prices LOL

    These are the long neck version so will fit a recessed down light if that's what you have.

    I can do £9 each inc delivery and based upon average use of 3 hours per day will have paid for themselves in the first year.

    They will fit most. I originally had them in a 4 way spot light before I bit the bullet and fitted new lights, it really depends on how deep your spot light lamp holder is.

    Damn I'm not sure if they will fit, the standard halogen bulb is held in by the u shaped metal ring is this the case for these. In regards to wiring there's No need to alter the wiring etc as these are plug and play?
    How much each were these originally I'm not going to use the dimmable function so maybe I'm better getting the non dimmable as will be cheaper....

    If the existing fitting is GU10 then the connector will fit, how wide and how deep is the aperture of your existing fitting?

    Can you photograph it and post up?

    Your lights are standard GU10 down lighters so they should fit ok. My recolection was that the philips Master lamps were originally about £25 each. The newer style GU10 LED replacement lamps are smaller and more like the size of the Dichroic halogen GU10 lamps, At the end of the day it's your choice whether you want the dimming capability.

    Sorry price is firm and are already a very good price. However understand your comments on price but when you consider how many times you have to change a normal GU10 and thses will last many years as well as save you lots of money, then you soon understand why they cost more than a standard lamp.
