First post so knock yourselves out!!!! I can take it.

Was in Homebase today and saw this deal. They are the 11w (60w Equivalent). Not sure if it's in all stores but looked like an official offer (signs and stuff) and not just a local store trying to shift old stock. They were by the checkout if that helps. Also I think it's a 10% day on 18th & 19th of this month so can save a bit more if you're really skint!!

I know some people have had free energy saving bulbs in the past etc. etc. but if you haven't then this is a good price.

Robert Dyas were 33p each today, don't know how long the offer is on for, a friend bought 6. I didn't post it in case it was a one day offer and he told me at 8pm tonight! Similar price if a Dyas is nearer and they are singly sold

Robert Dyas is still doing 3 energy saving bulbs for £1 (bought a few on the weekend). Homebase is doing a equivalent offer and this works out a bit cheaper. So heat added!!!

Has anyone else found that some low energy bulbs are better than others? I've got several different makes, and I keep meaning to work out which are the best.

In general I find that the cheap ones are older generation with slow warm up times. they also have a colder blue white light.

The newer generation low energy bulbs have fast warm up times so acheive full brightness in a few seconds rather than minutes with early bulbs and also have a warmer light which is closer to traditional tungsten light bulbs. However the newer genewration bulb, that more closely resemble traditional light bulbs are more expensive.

Agreed about the slow start, but not the colour, I have had Philips ones and if anything they are too yellow/soft a colour for my needs. I find the Philips don't last very long compared to others too, but for non-crucial or easy to reach locations, and for sheer value, I can't knock them too much!

Why are the candle style energy saving bulbs never on offer. I need 10 of them for my lights in my lounge.

It's a good deal, voted hot....I have some Phililps brand bulbs here.....I use them for outdoor lighting, hallways, etc.

And Energy saving bulbs are getting better as they evolve. The older generation ones were blue light and colder......I read an article recently where people are hoarding the old Incandescent light bulbs (before they become obsolete) as they dislike the colder light these emit..........

And this is slightly off topic, but did anyone know that when you break an Energy efficient bulb, you're meant to leave the room for 15 minutes, as they have Mercury in them.....not to detract from the OP's posting.....just anecdotal information.

Here is a quote from the site

"Vacate the room and ventilate it for at least 15 minutes. Do not use a vacuum cleaner, but clean up using rubber gloves and aim to avoid creating and inhaling airborne dust. Sweep up all particles and glass fragments and place in a plastic bag. Wipe the area with a damp cloth, then add that to the bag and seal it. Mercury is hazardous and the bag should not be disposed of in the bin. All local councils have an obligation to make arrangements for the disposal of household hazardous waste at a civic amenity site or household waste recycling centre."
