Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Just to say that SCOTT who serves on the light centre in your POOLE BRANCH certainly knows his products, unlike some, and trust you will let him know. Perhaps you will confirm this request. 24 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very dim This was the bulb advised to go in our new dinning room industrial light effect, but it is too dim our electrician said we need an led equivalent which is equal to a 75 watt bulb. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bright light Bought this for a friend who had recently purchase a new table lamp from J Lewis. At the time of purchase no one mentioned or thought that the lamp would need a bulb. I mentioned this to the partner who assisted me and with her help purchased the bulb. Since then my friend has purchased another one. 13 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by lightbulb Please please bring back pearl light bulbs to reduce the dazzling glare of clear bulbs 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good bright light This bulb was recommended by JL for the floor lamp I wanted,so I ordered both online at the same time. It is very good for reading as it gives a bright light and I also like the traditional style of the bulb,so would recommend it. 09 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Okay lamp, but not for the Derwent metal table lamp This bulb is recommended by John Lewis for the Derwent metal table lamp (70606202). However, as the light shines through the top and bottom of the lamp – not through the shade, which is grey metal, this bulb is not powerful enough. I phoned John Lewis and spoke to one of their lighting people and I was told that I could get a 42w bulb for it. Here are the details: Phillips 42W ES Halogen John Lewis ref. 70343006. This gives a much better light for this table lamp. 21 January 2015
