Finally managed to find these for less than the £8-15 each they normally cost.

If, like me, you put in new light fittings that use R50 reflectors; you'll know how hard it is to find their energy saving equivalents at a sub £7 price. Free next day delivery if you order over £45 of stuff.

My electric bill plumeted after fitting these (eg the bathroom lighting alone went from using 240 Watts to 42W).

ASDA have been doing low energy reflector bulbs for a little while now. I've bought several of the R50 and R65 sizes. If I remember correctly the price is around £2 - £2.50 each.

The reason I can't remember exact price is that I've also bought a number of other low energy bulbs from them which are selling at £1.68 and these are of various sizes, shapes and fittings including Edison Screw and Small Edison Screw as well as the more usual bayonet fitting. They do have quite a good range of these bulbs now at good prices.

All of the ASDA bulbs are of the type that take a few minutes to come up to full brilliance. You can buy Blackspur low energy at DIY stores and on the web which are a much whiter light and come on at full brilliance as soon as you throw the switch. However, they are a bit more expensive and different styles harder to find.

Sorry to sound a little negative on your post but thought you might want to check out ASDA for a bit more choice and better prices.

I have some megaman bulbs. Brilliant, very white & they work with dimmer switches which is quite unique.

Good find at this price :thumbsup:

How about these if you have an Ikea nearby

The R50 Energy saving bulbs for around £1.68 BOGOF which is a great deal :thumbsup:

IKEA is definitely the place to start if you need to kit out your house with all sorts of odd types of low energy bulbs. They have the more unusual shapes and connectors.

Thanks for the Ikea tip, it never occurred to me, I always hated that place. I never thought of Asda either! Mainly tried electrical, DIY and lighting places and they really do charge up to £15 for these bulbs.

I think the megaman ones must be a lot dearer as they last longer, can be dimmed and have a plastic covering in case the glass shatters; stops the mercury going everywhere. :)

So these Megaman ones are the only ones that a dimmable for sure are they?

Not bad but i got some brilliant ones from ebay same style 10 x for £34 free postage, which are energy saving grade b bulbs but not dimmable.

sadly though i have noticed dimmable bulbs are really expensive so by the time i have changed ever bulb in the house to energy saving nes to save on the bills and lower the carbon footprint they will be just one room that wont haver them as i aint paying £8 for 1 bulb as i need 4 of them.

I have these Megaman bulbs and they are very good, all the others quoted are not a patch on the megaman ones due to size!

The megaman ones are exactly the same size as the normal bulbs so don't look out of place.

Also Megaman bulbs are NOT dimable (I have lots), they make a dimable bulb that steps down with a dimmer or flicking the switch on and off but this is not one.

A word of warning with these, dispite them being the best reflector on the market (size wise) they do take a long while to "warm up", your kitchen will be quite dark for a long while after turning on, I talk from experience!

I also have several types of megaman include these. Yes they do take about a minute to warm up and as said they are more or less the same size unlike some other makes.

They are one of the best makers of low energy bulbs hence why they tend to be more expensive.

Its always worth remembering about the size of the bulbs and it can be a issue when it comes to fitting them as some makes stick out a lot these are flush in the spotlamp

Just a question about lighting in general.

Do I take it that low voltage reflector bulbs are a thing of the past nowadays.

Have they gone out of favour for some reason other than the 'Save the planet' concerns.

I tried the megaman R80 bulbs and they did not work so maybe they are not as good as people think

only lights in the house which dont have ES bulbs are two 3*r80 spots that the previous owners put in ( other spots r50 are sorted). Maybe cheaper to replace the light fittings!

The Megaman bulbs aren't the cheapest, but they are good. Tesco were selling General Electric bulbs for around £2 each a while back, however the shade of light was horrible, really cold, when compared to the Megaman ones.

I agree have Megaman in Kitchen and slowly replacing the other spots in the house when the bulb goes.

I ordered 4 of these last night and phoned this morning to increase my order to 6.

BUT they only have 3 left. Decided that with p&p was not worth it as I need 6. They told me is will be a discontinued stock.

all low energy and they are all dimmerable!!! Just ordered some, seem to be the cheapest as well!:)

I agree I have replaced all Spotlights in Bathroom and Kitchen with the Megaman lights. Initially took a while to get used to the change but love them now.
They do take a min or so to get really bright ~ but this is useful when using the toilet at night as you do not get blinded straight away ;-)
