Rated 5 out of 5 by Philips Halogen 42W BC Classic Golf Bulb Clear Very neat bulb to use in bedside lamps that are candle shaped, with small lamp shades. The bulb is small enough to be covered by the lamp shade, but give good light for reading in bed. 10 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Yes and No Excellent while it was working.The bulb was approx 2 months old when it popped, no receipt and no packaging so I binned it. It may have been just bad luck so I wouldn't let it put me off buying another. 17 February 2015
