Q & As

Philips 28W SES Eco Halogen Classic Energy Saving Candle Bulb, Clear 4.4 5 9 9
Useful bulb I haven't really had much use out of this bulb yet, hence the average rating. I haven doubt though, that it will be long lasting given it's price. It looks neat in the lamp I bought it for and gives a nice glow in the shade. Just the job for a small bedroom. 20 September 2014
Good light bulb. Good compact light bulb which gives a nice clear light but I prefer the light from a pearl bulb. 17 September 2014
Suits but Poor Light Shape etc works with lampshade but not bright enough to read by. 27 August 2014
Energy Saving Light Bulb Fits into my small touch lamps very well and gives out a good light. 30 July 2014
Good light level I am using these in bedside touch lamps. They provide a good light level instantly and are fine for reading by. 04 June 2012
Bright light considering they are 40W I ordered two lights from John Lewis and these were the recommended bulbs. What can I say? They do the job! They do look a lot brighter than some 40w bulbs. I was concerned they would look look a little dark. 31 May 2012
Really useful product Had I have been living in Cragside, and had the year been 1878, I probably would have waxed lyrical about this item, however it is 2012 and we take the light build for granted. Bought it, put it in lamp, switched it on, hey presto, let there be light! 10 February 2012
good shape candle shape much better than bulky energy saving fluorescent bulbs and 28w gives plenty of light to read by 24 January 2012
