Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job Fit for purpose. I sought advice I store and it was helpful 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Provides good economical light Purchased this low wattage Philips bulb for my new Devon Lamp as it has a low power requirement, but gives out a good light, making it economical in use. 30 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good staying power We have two of these in a glass lantern light in the hall, so they are on many hours a day, especially in winter. I have just had to replace the first one after some two years; the new bulb was slightly brighter, so they had faded a bit but give a pleasant warm light and look good too. 02 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light work of brightening room Needed a couple of these for bathroom light. Always keen to save the environment and these dispense a night quality of light 23 January 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for use with a dimmable lamp I bought this bulb with a touch lamp that has 3 settings but sadly this bulb does not work with the lamp as it is non dimmable. 02 November 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not very good Unfortunately one bulb arrived broken. I had to buy a replacement at Waitrose. Too much bother to send it back and ask for a refund. Not worth the trouble for one light bulb. 30 July 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice glow This bulb produces a very soft light easy to read with and attractive look. 07 July 2011
