  • Good light but doubtful quality

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Not too big and will fit in open GU10 holders
    Gives a lot of light 40W comparable

    Cons:

    Too white light, but good for shops
    Quality not great
    Already lights have failed

    OtherThoughts:

    After 8 months the first light started blinking. Now already 7 lights (of 15) have failed. The issue is that one of the led light will break down due to too much heat.

    I got an expert electronic engineer to look at it. He confirmed that the problem is cooling. A led will fail independently and then the other leds will start to blink. They are put in series on the power supply. So if one fails then the rest also.

    After replacing the led light (you can buy them seperately on dx) then my engineer fixed most lights.

    So you get what you pay for.

    Bottomline:

    For its price you get reasonable lights that can replaces a 40W halogen light.

    But considering that 50% of the lights have failed i think that you should get a better quality light.
