Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Ordered 4 but 2 were broken when they arrived. Plus the shape of these have been changed and as they were replacements to sit alongside originals I was very disappointed. Plus the original bulbs I bought have not lasted anything like the hours they say they do. 24 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Light bulbs not suitable I bought these bulbs for a John Lewis pendant light and unfortunately these were not the same as the original bulbs and I had to return them. 06 May 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Non-dimmable This may well be a lovely bulb, but it does not work well with the Portland touch lamp where the bulb is advertised on the same page. I'm guessing this is because the lamp has different light settings and this bulb is not compatible. Please John Lewis display the correct bulb for each lamp! I now need to go out and buy an alternative. 02 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Philips 7W cfl Golf Ball Bulb Is really good when l put it in the lamp it lite up !! 31 December 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by disappointed Bought four of these, one did not work. Expected more from Phiilips. 12 February 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Take a while to warm up Once warmed up, the bulbs give a good light - we have them in fittings requiring 3 bulbs. Warming up time seems quite long, though. 27 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by An essential product A simple but really good product. Just put in the lamp and forget. It gives a very good glow and lasts - well who knows, for a very long time. 23 November 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by No way do these bulbs last 10 years! Have had the light fittings for less than 5 years and have had to buy about 3 new bulbs- not nearly as good and long lasting as I expected. 22 November 2011
