Rated 5 out of 5 by does a good job very bright light, does a good job would buy this product again. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic Bulb - So much nicer that ugly energy saver bulbs! This bulb consumes 70 watts whilst it outputs 92 watts. Ok - this represents a 24% saving in consumption - not as much as an Energy Saving Bulb .....but its not ugly like an Energy Saver and unlike those it looks just great in your typical lamp shade! And when you switch on - you get instant brightness - again unlike an Energy Saver that has to warm up. I've got these in places like Hall, Stairs, Landing, and Bedrooms where because they're not on for great lengths of time the extra running cost over an Energy Saver is marginal. SO MUCH MORE ASCETICALLY PLEASING!! 25 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A GOOD LIGHT It is the first time I have used these lights, and find they give a clear bright light. It is rather like a daylight bulb in the cool tone of the light, but is excellent for working and reading by it. I shall be interested to see how long it lasts compared with the traditional 'old' lights. 23 November 2011
