Customer:

do you suggest mains or transformer?

***** ***** : I have no preference, I have fitted both
***** ***** : The only thing I can say is that the GU10 (240v) bulbs are quite expensive to replace
Customer:

and led vs halogen?

***** ***** : leds are more expensive but last much longer - so it evens out over the long term
***** ***** : The led's use much less electricity too
Customer:

JCC is a good brand as in no point paying more than 20 pounds for an LED one?

***** ***** : JCC are good, and no need to spend more
Customer:

ok - thx
