Going to think about stepping away from Lucceco . But not wanting to pay fortunes . What bulbs do you have good results with when matching with the right dimmer modules etc ? thanks

Philips Master Expert Colour with Varilight dimmer. Despite the claims, the lamps are more like a 35W replacement than 50W though.

I have been using the LAP non dimmable lamps for a couple of years now with no failures.
I've not tried the dimmable ones though.

I also recommend Varilight dimmers, I've not come across a situation where they didn't work.

Just to point out that the lamps linked to by @marconi are not actually the dimmable ones, which can be found on the website elsewhere.

I now write with a permanent marker the date on a new LED lamp when it is fitted - because they don't seem to last that long - two years at most. SAXBY do a replacement service IIRC should the lamp fail within its warranty period - check this though:

I have never used it TBH - life is too short sometimes to go through the faff.

Again, Varilight V-Pro and either LAP dimmable GU10's, or Aurora Ice dimmable GU10s (if the client wants to spend a bit more, they kick out a bit more light per watt).

Incidentally, for the V-Pro modules, it works out cheapest to buy a 2-gang dimmer from screwfix (code 98455) and just take the modules out.

i use the lap dimmable with varilight pro, installed hundreds and not been called back to one yet. also they have a 3 year warranty which i point out to the customer so they would call me back if they were faulty.
I think this is the first time I have read a positive review about LAP products on this forum. So positive that I shall in fact give them a go. One question about the Vpro. What's the minimum wattage led, s it will satisfactorily dim?

While we are on the subject of led lamps, occasionally I come across situations where customers complain of a very slight flicker from their leds .On investigation I have not always been able to nail down the issue and end up suggesting we try a better quality lamp, which often does the trick. However it is frustrating when you don, t find out the exact cause of the issue. I wondered what you guys find to be the most common cause, s of led "flicker" and what are the most common solutions?
