I have replaced 12 off 50Watt halogen GU10s in banks of 4, each bank on a dimmer with these LED bulbs. So far I have had no failures and they give more light that the original halogens. I recommend that if you are using dimmers you replace any older dimmers with new ones designed to work with LED bulbs. With original dimmers they flickered and buzzed. I found you can mix halogen and LED without any problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rodthemod 4 out of 8 blown in4 weeks
Bought 8 of these for kitchen ceiling
Within 4 weeks 4 different ones have blown
Not impressed as it is such a hassle to change them and keep going back to store
Is store guarantee for 1 year or 25 years ?
There are NO manufacturer contact details on packaging
Will be taken them all back

Rated 5 out of 5 by Al Very bright and genuine white colour
Just bought 2 of these for a pair of uplights, they are much, much brighter and give a whiter light than some other 5W LED bulbs i've got. It's a clean white rather than the green tinge that some 'warm' bulbs have. I would say that these actually do deserve to be described as equivalent brightness to a 50W halogen.
The other reviews where dimming is mentioned fail to actually state that dimmers have a MINIMUM wattage that they will work with - as well as the leading/trailing edge compatibility. A standard one for halogens cannot cope with the low load of LEDs and will make them fail. Check before you swap these straight into an existing setup.

Bought 6. Tried one and initial impression good. Then turned light off and on again. Bulb blew. Tried a second and this one would not stop flickering.
No such issues with any previous bulbs.
Gave up at this point and returned the lot. 25 years - did not last 25 minutes!
