I purchased 10 warm white 6watt GU 10 bulbs from this source for £28.99. They where advertised as having a life of 50,000 hrs. After fitting them on the 28 November 2012, by today 12 January 2013 out of the 10 bulbs purchased 6 have packed up. ESTIMATED USE APPROX 150 hrs. I'm sure they are issued from a depot in the U.K. but returning them is to China.
BE WARNED. 
RETURNING THESE WILL COST £30 plus AND IN MY CASE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE THE SHIPPING COMPANY REQUIRED A TELEPHONE No WHICH PAYPAL DID NOT HAVE AND AN EMAIL ADDRESS WHICH WHEN ADDED WAS DECLARED INVALID. CONTACT BY MYSELF RESULTED IN NO RESPONSE, PAYPAL DID RECEIVE A REPLY WHEN THEY EMAILED HIM. WHEN I QUERIED WITH THEM WHAT THIS RESPONSE WAS, I WAS INFORMED IT WAS ONLY A FULL STOP! Yes one of these....

END RESULT? MY REIMBURSED PAYMENT FROM PAYPAL WILL BE TAKEN BACK FROM ME BECAUSE I CAN'T RETURN THE GOODS AND THEREFORE I AM THE DEFAULTING PARTY IN THE DEAL.

MY ADVICE? DON'T BUY THESE BULBS FROM 360 HANDY. IN MY CASE THEY WERE USELESS AND IT WILL COST YOU MORE TO RETURN THEM TO GET A REBATE. 

MAY THEY WOULD HAVE LASTED 50,000 hrs + IF I HADN'T SWITCHED THEM ON!

ANYONE ELSE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THESE ITEMS? I WOULD BE INTERESTED TO KNOW
