The Philips Master LED range is now covered by a 5 year guarantee, here are the main reasons why:

1. They are highly reliable and since Philips launched the Master LED range in 2008, there have been very few failures. Unlike other inferior brands, especially unbranded SMD LEDs that have given LED lighting technology an unfair bad name.

2. Why not? The life expectancy is between 25,000 to 40,000 hours. If they are supposed to last this long why don't other manufacturers offer this too? It is because they are not confident in there products. Philips are.

3. The Philips Master LED range now has a proven track record of success, Downlights Direct vouches for them as we have sold them since the launch date. In terms of quality and reliability they are second to none.

4. With the launch of the new COB (Chip On Board) LED range, newer LED lamps contain a single high output LED chip. One benefit of this is that there are less components that can break or stop working. Unlike SMD LEDs which contains loads of tiny LEDs, if one tiny LED overheats the entire LED lamp needs replacing.

As LED lighting technology continues to go mainstream, what will the future hold for LED lamps? Price will certainly pay an important role. Prices will reduce gradually overtime while performance increases. With higher output GU10 LED lamps becoming available with up to 575 lumens.

The overall light quality will improve, while halogen lighting had a high CRI rating as standard, most LEDs are 80 CRI and unbranded ones will be even lower. High CRI will become the standard as it reproduces colours more accurately, why would you accept a distorted vision in your own home?
