Wattage: 50Verified Purchase
My grandparents got their kitchen remodeled two years or so ago and three out of the four of their light fixtures have these bulbs (totaling 6 bulbs). The ones in the store were really expensive so I found these online and we decided to go for it. We were slightly skeptical (more so my grandparents) when buying these bulbs because they are much lower in price than we expected to find but they have been great so far. They came faster than expected and the box was not all beaten to pieces either. Our light fixture has a max of 50 watts. These bulbs are a lot brighter than our old bulbs (Which were somewhere around 30 watts).

They seem to be doing fine so far, although they do have a slight hint of pink light that comes out of the back, but you can only see it if you look closely at the light fixture. Its not really a big issue. I only mention it because at first we thought there was something on the globes surrounding the bulbs, but the pink shade is actually from the rear of the light. It disappears when the lights are turned off and people have only noticed after we pointed it out. Next time we need to buy bulbs this will be the first place we look.

I will hopefully update on the lifespan of the bulbs sometime in the future after we see how long they last.

*Edit* It is 12/31/2011 almost two years from the date they were purchased. I haven't really kept track of the bulb life as we have three different fixtures totaling 6 bulbs. But so far I think we have only replaced one of the new bulbs once. I would estimate we got about a year or more of use with it being used daily for many hours in the kitchen. I would say they have lived up to or exceeded our expectations, especially at such a great price.

Wattage: 50
These are much less expensive than local Home Depot or Lowes. Shipping was super fast & arrived in perfect condition. I only tried 1 bulb so far & it worked. Seems as bright as the same wattage bulbs that came with my light fixture. No obvious difference in color. These bulbs are not transparent on the sides so it only shines forward, where my current bulbs are, so they also illuminate the glass globe around it. Not a problem really- i can always replace them all at once since this is a 12 pak.

I was a little skeptical when I ordered these that they would be as good as a brand name you could pick up at home depot for almost $7 a bulb, but I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the 35w bulbs for use in my track lighting and they are all working perfectly after a couple weeks. No duds that I have run into, and I used half the box already. I'll be buying these again in the future!

I am replacing 50w halogens in my overhead ceiling lights. I found that the 50w lights overheat in my lights and even shut down until they cool off when I run them for over 1 hr at a time. These 35w bulbs give nearly as much
light and they don't overheat to the point that they shut down. I am happy with them. Wish they were a little cheaper.

I priced these out everywhere else and this was the cheapest. I had my doubts but they seem to be working out just fine. Delivery was way faster than expected, they are mailed using usps but I received them in about 5-6 days.

I just received these bulbs and replaced my first one in a recessed light fixture from Ikea. It works, but the light is not as bright as the 35W bulbs from Ikea. I'm fine with using these up, but I won't get more.

At the hardware store and even online these bulbs are about $3 to $5 a piece. I needed eight 35w bulbs to replace the 50w I currently have. This seemed like a good value. The bulbs took a little under a week to get here once I placed the order. They were individually packed in their own little boxes just as pictured. The build quality on them is great even though I thought they might be a little cheaper made given the lower price tag. They all put put out identical light and color and the box says they have a 2000 hour lifespan, about a 1000 hours short of the 50w I was replacing. No big deal though. Overall a good product priced reasonably.

These are the first GU10 bulbs I've found that are both inexpensive and have a good lifespan. I've tried a bunch of brands, and these are the ones I am stocking up on. The price here on amazon is fine for a single box, but if you're stocking up you'll want the flat-rate shipping offered directly at cbconcept.

The bulbs I received have an angle of 30 degrees. CBConcept also makes a 20-degree option as well 20W and 35W models.

This was by far the best price I could find on the halogen gu10 bulbs, so I was a bit nervous ordering them. They showed up and seem a tiny bit cheaper, but by the time you plug them in, they work great and I can't tell the difference. They have been going strong for a few months and I can't tell which ones I replaced and which ones are old.

Strongly recommend.

My bulbs arrived today.
8 of the 12 were broken. They shipped them in an envelope with NO padding!
The other 4 bulbs work. I have written for replacements for the broken ones. Will update on their response and service.

If I end up with 12 working bulbs I will give 5 stars because they are cheap and they work the same as the expensive ones I am replacing. Let's see if the company's service is any good :-)

UPDATE...Jan 14 2014.....
I emailed the company yesterday about the broken bulbs. They asked me to submit a picture, which I did.
Received another email this morning notifying me that they are sending 8 replacement bulbs.
So far so good .. :)
I expressly told them that they need to pad the product better, Waiting to see what condition the replacements are in.
Will update after they arrive.

Well, The replacements arrived and they were packed much better. They all work!
I changed my rating to 5 star.
