Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product - realistically priced Good product - reasonable price - lasts quite a long time too. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good I have recently started to rent out my flat through Air bnb when I am away. I was amazed at how many light bulbs needed replacing after the second hosting. I can only imagine that the guests left the lights on all the time! I therefore decided to change all the major light bulbs to LED in the hope that they would last longer and cost less to use. So far, so good, but only time will tell. The initial financial spend is a bit steep but I hope they last the distance. One thing that is very noticeable is that the quality of light is very good - no more waiting for the bulb to warm up, and no flickering. They also seem to be a lot brighter which I prefer. Apart from the hefty price tag I can only find positive things to say about these bulbs and would recommend them. 07 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by not as bright not as bright as the old 60watt bulb it replaced . 02 November 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Philips Halogen Classic Clear ES Golf Ball bulb, 42W I ordered 3 of these bulbs for various areas of my home. Bulb are dimmable and serve the purpose. Cannot comment on the life of bulb at this point. I wasn't sure if they would be bright enough but they are. I would intend to get more for other suitable areas of the home. 17 July 2012
