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

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. "
