Better than CFL lamps
9 Sep 2012
By majorsparks
, Worcester
"These lamps are I think better than CFL lamps for many applications because [1] dimmable [2] full brightness straight away (CFL's are rubbish in on/off situations like door entry PIR's - too slow to warm up) [3] look like a traditional lamp - good for crystal lights (CFL's are generally ugly) [4] saves electricity compared to std lamps (ok not as much as CFL's) [5] give more natural light [6] don't flicker so better for reading."

It's a light bulb!!!
8 Mar 2012
By WillFinishOneDay
, Worcester
"It's a light bulb and what do you expect? Loads of light for only 42watts and is full blast straight away - bit ugly though with clear glass. I have used four of these for only a few weeks so I haven't given a better than 4 stars reliability as I don't know how long they will last."

OK. But fail too easily
22 Apr 2013
By Iconical
, Guildford
"After just finishing our extension, we put these bulbs in, as they are dimmable, and bright.
They are indeed Dimmable, and instant on, and good light from them. However, within 6 months, I have had to replace all the bulbs with new ones - certainly no where near the 2000hours usage they claim.
Still looking for alternatives though...

hardly last at all
20 Feb 2014
By Rockyroad

"Bought these in order to be eco friendly and save money on electricity bill. Wasted my time as they only last between 5 and 10 hours use. I would not recommend this make to people. I bought 3 different styles and none have lasted very long - this style was the worst."
