Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a light bulb! OK but not life changing. Nice and bright with no turn on delay like a low energy bulb - and dimmable. 11 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value product the bulbs are traditional looking and very bright. They were surprisingly reasonably priced. 30 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Necessary product After 3 and a half years, the bulb above my ceramic hob gave out so this is a replacement. Let's see how long it lasts ...the rating might be higher if so.. 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We have light! It's a bulb. It emits light. Easy screw fit. What else can I say? 20 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Practical and atmospheric This bulb provides practical and bright light when on the full setting. Its lower settings provide a warm and homely glow. 09 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Feedback We bought 5 of these and within a few days one of them is already not working 28 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product (especially for 'touch' lights) at reasonable price. Purchased for use in John Lewis New Tom table touch lamp. Recommended to work efficiently with this lamp. Works perfectly and consumes less electricity than a standard tungsten bulb of around 60 watts, whilst giving almost the same light output for only 42 watts. Also comes on and reaches full brightness immediately, unlike most energy saving lights. Ideal for this sort of light. 07 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bulbs for dimmers These are quite eco friendly and give you more light for your buck than tungsten. 07 January 2013
