Tara Pinkerton is a well-known troll on this site, and went by another, similar name before hand and posted endless tedious comments. It'll be some little nutless lad secretly typing on his school computer, because he's too poor and scabby to afford his own.

Don't feed the troll.
#13
so *****, what a dump lmfao just kidding, looks very nice in that room although nightmare for energy saving?!
#14
love the bed sheets hanging in the windows ;) lol
#15
Personally, I think it looks a tad council chic too.......but as long as you're happy with it then what does it matter?

I noticed this sale a week or so ago and bought a different light fitting from the same range (was £50 down to £10) as I needed 2 to fit my drawing room.

Voted hot btw

Not my taste, but have some heat for the effort with the pics and the suicidal method of fixing the light. :lol:

Sunken spots are the best look.............

Sure the law states that you can't fit new light sockets as in spurs from the existing circuit.
No crime fitting a new light fitting where an existing one is already.

I like the lights myself and a very good price. Shame there isn't a bigger Asda near by as I fancy getting some of the wall lights to replace some horrid flowery shaded ones we have inherited in our new house.

isnt G4 light bulbs going to go out-lawed because its un eco friendly i.e. D rated for efficiency..? google it to make sure before you buy these..

Wrong information again !!!

20w G4 Halogen Light Bulb - CLEAR

G4 Halogen light bulbs have the pins 4mm apart and provide outstanding light quality as the crisp white illumination delivers superior colour reproduction, [SIZE="3"]they are more energy efficient than conventional incandescent light bulbs and offer a longer life[/SIZE]. Other features include outstanding beam control, UV control, heat reflective coatings that protect display items and a simple push install feature which makes installation quick, easy, safe and all presented within a neat compact size.

true,i have no idea what a lighting socket is though,better to be safe than sorry!
#30
I like the look of these, whats the light output like? I have a 100w fake flourescent spiral thing at the min, so should look better! Also how tall are they? I have high ceilings but wanted to be sure.

EDIT: I have a standard fitting at the min, would this just go in its place?
#31
We have a high ceiling and it looks just great,
u have to take your old fitting off and fit the new fitting that comes with the light, it takes just 2 screws and they come with raw plugs as well
i never used them as the plaster was just falling away, i just screwed the screws just right into the wood spars
#32
In response to saxo_appeal "they are more energy efficient than conventional incandescent light bulbs and offer a longer life." They might be more efficient if you didn't need 10 lamps in one fitting. This "green" stuff is doing my head in. We will be allowed to fit 8 halogen downlights but not buy our one 60w light bulb. The world has gone mad. Not to mention the fire risk with halogen downlights (I know that they now supply fire hoods but I bet many of them don't have them fitted)

Actually IKEA sells bulbs dirt cheap, I tend to stock up on all the household bulbs when we go. I think I read that these are G4, well if I remember right the IKEA pack price for these is 50 odd pence.

Edit, 59p for a two pack of 10W or 20W
#34
good price for them daryllg, in asda they cost £3 for 2 :)

I agree mate it is an absolute joke and farce that these are more energy efficient, when a room that was ok with a 60W light bulb now needs 6 50W downlighters lol!

You have to be daft not to think about the consequences of your leccy bill too.

Also Halogens are not ideal with dimmers as they can't recover as efficiently...

Crazy :x
#36
In regards to that comment :)

We hardly have the ceiling light on as we have our corner stand lamp and a little table lamp on at night.....the ceiling light on all the time would be too much, plus the bulbs in our stand light and table light are the energy efficient weird looking bulbs :)

unless its on for a short time to find something or to switch the lights on at night when we come in etc so apart from that were hardly using it
#37
Please please please tell me which stores this is available at because at three of my local stores that do lighting have not reduced their stock and I need light fittings for all my rooms! Any help will be repped and gratefully received please!

My local store is Cardiff, Newport or near so if someone is aware when they are reducing stock I would love to know thank you :-)

Ask them to scan the ones ive posted, they usually have hand held ones so its done pretty quickly

#39
I did on the night you posted it but they were still full price and it's so frustrating! Guess I'll have to keep checking. Thanks :-)

a) requires a convertor from 230v to 12v (dissapates heat thus wasted energy), plus EXTRA MATERIAL TO PRODUCE.
b) it produces less watts compared to normal incadescent but what about the lack of illumination compared to the incadescent? (much like what others said on here in which it requires more bulbs to light it up)
c) longer life? ok, i give you that. but how much longer? 20hrs? 200hrs? 2000hrs?
d) your references are from SELLERS :thinking:
e) with your quote, "a crisp white illumination" i.e. white as an LED white? or yellowish white? from the ones i've bought and returned they were yellowish white, not pure white.


Done a little research,
G4's 20w 12v bulb has ~10 Lum/Watt efficiency
E27 (traditional screw fit bulb) 40w 230v bulb ~12.5 Lum/Watt efficiency

Few things to note,
Yes at lower wattage G4's are more efficient (E27's @ 25w its ~8 L/W, G4's @ 20w its ~10L/W) BUT having 10x small bulbs doesnt mean you have the same lumination (unless light is directed exactly the same as E27 bulbs). Plus higher wattage of E27 has increased efficiency.

I am not here to say E27's are more efficient than G4's, im here to say that there is no HUGE ECO SAVING ADVANTAGE for G4's if you are using them in the living room for lighting the place up EFFECTIVELY. it isnt as efficient as many many other bulbs because of the small size and the lack of focus of light.
