Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phillips 28W BC Halogen Classic Golf Ball Bulb, Clear I always have a problem trying to find a small bulb for my little John Lewis table lamp but this one fits perfectly and has a nice glow. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good replacement for old filament lamps I have replaced all my old filament lighting fixtures with this lamp. I have replaced my 80watt lamps with this 28watt lamp thus saving money on the cost of fuel but not diminishing the quality of lighting. I find that they are much longer lasting than the old lamps and give a better quality of light. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job perfectly I bought this bulb for it's size and shape to go into a fairly old fashioned light fitting they fit perfectly and do not protrude above the shade as so many modern bulbs do. Extremely pleased. 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great quality product The light bulb lasts very long (this is the second one I bought) and is very bright. I'm very happy with this product and the price is great too. 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great great, funny how the phones I bought didn't get picked nor did the tv but the light bulb did oh well all good 22 April 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by very short life! I bought two for dimmable bedside lights, nice light compared to CFL but not as soft as the superior old fashioned bulbs. The first bulb blew after 2 weeks, the next one after 1 week. Hardly energy saving! 27 April 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by one star because unable to give zero!! I couldn't agree more with the other customer review. Lasts two years!! What a joke, they are absolute rubbish, I have had to change for a new one every few weeks. Complete waste of money. Don't buy. 14 March 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Short lived They may save on electricity but I don't consider a life of 6 weeks is going to save me money!!! 01 March 2012
