Picked a few up on Kirkstall Road, Leeds.

Not bad considering that now penny sweets cost 5p and the cost to spend a penny is 20p!

Max 100 per customer!

The claim of 10 year lifetime is a bad joke, but at this price they don't need to last that long.
#2
Have you checked the fitting? Every time I see cheap energy saving bulbs they always seem to be screw, mini screw or mini bayonet. Either the shops or manufacturers have failed to notice that most people in this country use standard bayonet, and for those lamps which are one of these other fittings, the bulbs always seem to be physically too large.

They are standard bayonet :)

I doubt these would last 10 years even if you didn't ever switch them on.

They last for ages, I can't believe people are taking issue with the ten year lifetime claim. Ordinary light bulbs have a tendency to fail regularly whereas these things are like the Duracell bunny in comparison. All my light bulbs are energy saving ones, the only one thats broken in the last few years was my fault. I accidently whacked it with a pillow somehow. Normal lightbulbs fail at an alarming rate in my experience.

please can you elaborate on how you hit the pillow :P , also I hate these energy saving bulbs, I'm sure it is going to cause problems with eyestrain etc the light they give off is horrible

It is true that they aren't very bright. I don't think they have ever caused me eye strain before though. As for the pillow incident, it's a little hazy in my memory. It was a complete accident, I think I sat up in bed and pulled the pillow over my head, it managed to catch the light hanging from the ceiling. I think that was what happened anyway...lol

If you find those ones please post, had to pay nearly £6 each for some candle shaped mini bayonet (or mini screw, forget which) from ebay.

The shortest one of these has lasted for me was 30 minutes!
However, upon contacting Philips a replacement was sent free of charge. Not bad considering i got it as a 3 pack from poundland!
Heat added for price, pretty much unbeatable.

No the MOD didn't just spend £22 on a light bulb. They bought thousands of them at that price...

The item the MOD spent £22 on was actually a radar filament, the whistleblower didn't know what he was talking about. Having said that, they DID buy £2.30 screws for Land Rovers at £103 each!

Bathtub curve. How long did the replacement last?
#18
I bet the MOD paid way more than 1p for their arsenal of lightbulbs even it wasn't £22. I would of thought it would be the whisteblowers job to know what he was talking about. If the MOD were spunking £103 on a few screws I wonder what else they were wasting money on like that.

I was wondering if there was any chance we could sell them to the MOD.
I think £19.99 a bulb would sound like a terrific bargain to them.

Great price for a bulb,, but i find they are ugly in light fittings,, if they fit with the shade on,, they take ages to develop full brightness,, if you can call it that,,and long term they seem to become brittle,, and just disintegrate when you try and remove them,, and now councils wont let you put the bulbs in the bin as they can expose the dustbin-men to mercury vapors,, or something,, But i love LED its the future,,at a price!! cheaper from dealextreame to replace halogens mr16,, or gu10

It is a great price, but personally I find these bulbs relatively useless - they are too bulky and not bright enough to be widely used through the house, so usually just sit unused in the spare bulb drawer. I would spend a little more on the brighter / better designed bulbs than live for the next 10 years with a dim and ugly bulb.
