    Hi all, just wondered what people's go to LED downlights are. I've worked for a couple of companies and both seemed to have cheap and cheerful as a preference- just replacing as required if they stopped working. What would u fit if u were to fit them for yourself? Preferably changeable with lamps, dimmer not required and same lighting level as halogens. Warm white obvs. Thank u in advance for your suggestions :)

    I either fit JCC V50 as fully intergrated option cost about £11.50+vat

    Or JCC GU10 cans which can be had for £3.85 +vat + a LED GU10 lamp (+£2)

    I generally always fit a downlight with gu10 lamp I'm not a fan of integrated fittings as when they fail you end up changing the whole fitting rather than just a lamp

    Based on personal experience - be very wary of JCC's so called 10 year warranties.

    The recently discontinued JCC 6 tilt - they have ABSOLUTELY no stock for warranty replacements .............. not impressed.

    I find it funny that they’re incapable of holding true to their warranty, not your situation.

    I don't find it funny, I find it incredibly unprofessional ....... so buying more JCC products is now not top of my list.

    We had an issue with luxna. We had installed approximately 50 downlights across various dimmable banks. I literally tried every single one of their ‘approved’ dimmer mods but to no avail and was just made to look like a complete plonker due to he non comparability

    I was literally guaranteed by my local wholesaler that all manufacturers are obliged to hold enough stock to validate all liable warranties

    This is a large reason why I fit a fitting with a GU10 lamp, the warranty issue is far from limited to just JCC. With the ever improving LED technology and better output, CRI etc, many if not all dedicated downlights available now you will not be able to get the hold of in 5 years.
