10000 hours Ha!!

" I work as a professional electrician, with almost 40 years in the trade.
Fitted these in a domestic bathroom of a single occupancy property, guess what? After less than eighteen months, k chunk, hand in wallet for replacement lamps.
Do the sums on your house, see how long your usage would take to eat up 10,000 hours. Bet its longer than 18 months before you would expect to shell out another £13+ for replacements.
No small print either in advertising blurb about average life under x, y or z operating conditions.
Oh and at over 12 months since purchase your on your own!!
aaagh. Moan over.

Who's the dimwit now?

" Made the mistake of fitting SGU10s CF bulbs in my kitchen. They don't last anywhere near the 10000 hours claimed and there seems to be only 1 manufacturer that makes them. I've got 8 across my kitchen and another 4 in another room. After just 15 months of normal operation I'm now having to shell out 3 replacements. Forget the eco credentials you are better off with 50W standard GU10 halogens. Oh and they take ages to get us to full brightness as well "

" hang on a mo.... just waiting ... for the light ... to get bright enough .... .... to .... see ........what .......I'm ........doing. ..... ....... ..... these .... take a ........ while... to...... warm up. .There ......nearly... there now.
You expect CFLs to be a bit slower but these take absolutely ages - and even longer when cold. Only fit where the lamp will be on all the time. "
