Also which products would you recommend?
Please let me know.

You're better off waiting for an instore promotion and using the $5 energy coupons.jk43234 wrote: ↑Sorry to threadjack, but I didn't want to start a new thread for the exact same question.
I have those contractor pack GU10 potlights. I bought 2 Lutron LED dimmers a few weeks ago when Lowes was having a No-Tax event. Since Lowes is having a 16% off deal today, I figured I would load up on bulbs.
It doesn't look like Lowes has Philips, and the Sylvania bulbs are these 1-pin bulbs that say PAR16 GU10. I have never seen them before so I am not sure if they would work. Other brands are Feit, Bazz, and GE.
Also, there are some bulbs that say things like 7 Watts but 60 Watts equivalent. They're pretty expensive but if they're worth it for the energy savings I would go for it. I guess I am worried that the bulb would go out before realizing any savings.
Sorry for all of the questions, but any help on which bulb to get from Lowes would be appreciated.

Thanks. I wish I would have looked for these energy coupons before getting dimmers. I guess it would be better to wait until Lowes has another No-Tax event.
Thanks. How are the bulbs at Dollarama?

Don't buy these direct from china junk, they are poorly made, would never pass CSA testing and may burn your house down (even more likely being a hard to heatsink potlight).popbottle wrote: ↑Dozens of people are selling Gu10(and others) with free shipping http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?cat ... t=gu10+led

They often do, but they have to meet CSA standards to be legally allowed into the country, the Distributor (usually Dollarama, but in the case of HD or Lowes would be the company, Philips, Sylvania etc) mandates a design the manufacturer is to follow (they still try to cheapen it mind you but its not designed to be unsafe before its even built), the bulbs are CSA tested and approved by the distributor/company and if they fail there is a chain of custody and liability, you have a company you can sue (or your insurance company can) meaning they attempt to ensure their products meet safety standards. I believe there is also spot testing done periodically, whereas no name from china you are the guilty party because you imported and used unsafe (hence illegal) merchandise.
