Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Died after one and a half years' use. I have been using this for almost one and a half years already. I really like the light tone (softone) of this bulb, not too bright nor too dim, just right for reading and it's very comfortable to the eyes (as opposed to those 'cool daylight' type). It was all good until today, when it started to flicker and eventually died out. On the box it says it's gonna last for 10 years, but mine lasted for only one and a half. Disappointed. Or maybe I was just being unlucky. 27 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but.... In the interests of sustainability I would have preferred the bulb to have arrived in the lamp packagaing box we had also ordered as it meant a separate journey and packaging which was a waste for one bulb. Bulb is fine and up and running. 23 November 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by illuminating the Philips 12W CFL Bulb has changed my whole outlook on life. My eyes have been opened to the darkness and now I see. 23 November 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by takes a while to become bright An ok bulb, but not great as an outside bulb as it takes so long to become bright x 16 November 2011
