Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Bought 2 of these bulbs to go into dimmable wall lights. They were reasonably priced and packaged in a way that made selection easy.Not great deal to be said, they went in easily they are a suitable brightness and as mentioned can be dimmed so perfect for the job. Only time will tell how they last. 03 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful & beautiful Product info with wall lights bought at JLP recommended Philips Globe 42 watt bubs. I wouldn't have chosen them myself but they are exactly right. They light up quickly. Nothing slow or dim about these bulbs. Thanks to Philips and JLP! 12 November 2012
