Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Average at best They're ok bulbs if you like to replace them every 3 months. After a while they tend to become costly replacing them as my fitting takes five bulbs.. Switched to the LED bulbs instead 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit and type of bulb Great to find right type of lightbulb in store, had difficulty finding it anywhere else 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good light Great bulbs - give off a nice crisp clear light. Very homely. 15 December 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by One blew after a week! Purchased two of these for matching side lamps to replace the poor lumens level provided by their existing low energy bulbs but one blew within a week. The excellent JL are sending a replacement. I've rated the bulbs as 'Average' for now as the jury is out until more time has passed with two working bulbs. Good price though! 16 November 2015
