Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by light bulb good buy, give a nice warm light fine for a bed room 04 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Specific lighting This Philips soft tone lamp I precisely what was expected, very pleased with the result obtained, I have used this branded name before, still same high standard 09 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost ideal I bought this for the ensuite where I wanted a good light for make up. This bulb does a good job but, like all these low energy bulbs, it needs "warming up" time so is not perfect if I am in a hurry. 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking design Graduates up quite quickly to the stated brilliance which was quite bright, possibly brighter than we were expecting. 27 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by GIVES A WARM LIGHT The bulb warms up quite quickly though I realise this may slow down with age. It gives a pleasant warm light not unlike that of the old tungsten bulbs. overall size - slightly bigger than I would have liked - may not fit into all 100W fittings and shades. 04 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Length of service Quality product , seems to last a life time. The rating is based on this and the delivery service from JL. 09 November 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful and Practical This bulb provides 100W equivalent and is small enough to replace a GLS bulb, unlike others which are vastly bigger. For English fittings ensure to order the BC version as most are made with an Edison screw which is not UK standard.. 26 October 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Attractive but short lifespan energy saving bulbs I bought 4 of these for my kitchen. The light quality is good and the bulb is attractive compared to some energy-saving bulbs. However, the box stated the bulb would last for 10 years but within a year, 3 of the 4 bulbs had blown. John Lewis replaced them free of charge but I wouldn't buy them again for this reason. 04 July 2011
