Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Bright, warm & long life! Great for brightening up my dark bedroom. 22 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Noticed bulb broken when I first tried to use it. Should have been checked and not have been sold. Previous similar bulbs have not lasted as long as Philips say they will. I will avoid buying again. 28 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Needed this for the new Denver touch lamp Bought the Denver touch lamp after breaking the shade on the original one got broke. It's a long lasting bulb. 07 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Bulb failed after 4 months use of 6/7 hours per day, so much for long life...... 07 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bulb Beautifully looking bulb that produces an impressive amount of power. 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautful Little light Bought four of these for the bedrooms and living room. They are really nice with a beige-grey textured shade. I put a 40 watt LED bulb in mine and it gives just the right amount of light in each room. You need to be careful when screwing the shade to the bulb base as the shade can be slightly lop sided. Best to hold the shade and slowly screw, check the shade then screw again. Apart from that I would recommend the light. 20 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bulbtastic! What can I say, it's a bulb and it lights. We use ours in a lamp which has 3 light levels. Always buy good brand. 30 September 2014
