Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Curiously fragile It emits light, as one would expect, but the slightest jolt of the table lamp knocks it out for some reason, resulting in repeat purchases sooner than one would expect from the average light bulb. Somewhat wimpy. 20 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A real quality product Excellent neat bulb design, bright light and excellent value for money. Bulb really does last a very long time. 12 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Basic but good. Ideally I would have liked these bulbs in an opal finish, but this is not available. They were recommended for the Lulu half shades which I also bought. The bulbs are a little fat for those fittings which mean they can pop off from time to time. 29 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and bright These bulbs are really nice and bright. I haven't had them all that long but they appear to be performing well. 01 December 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by philips 28w eco halogen classic energy saving candle bulb clear Beautiful light warm and inviting in our chandeliers in bedroom no shadows which we have encountered with other bulbs we will be purchasing these again when next in store to have on stock 10 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hope it lasts longer than previous ones Previous ones lasted about 3 months! Shame there is no guarantee on light bulbs! 04 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a light bulb! ... is a bulb is a bulb. Better (visually, aesthetically) than a typical energy saving bulb. Does what it says on the tin. 29 September 2015
