I like that this is dimmable, as I've removed my dimmer switches to get energy saving bulbs all round the house. However, almost £12 seems just a bit ridiculous to me.

£11.97 for an energy saving bulb is crazy.
Voted cold.

If you want to be able to dim the lamps then you have to pay a premium.

Remember back a few years and non dimmable lamps cost that much, the price will no doubt drop as more are produced/sold.

+1 I was going to say the same the technology is quite new still so give it a couple of years and you know they will be cost effective

I second that, but if you want one now, it is a good price. You pay £15 and more elsewhere. For this reason it is a good offer and should not be voted cold. You need to compare like with like, rather than just say "this is too expensive".

£3.97 for a non dimmable bulb against £12.97 for dimmable is not good value in my book, sorry.

AFAIK Homebase were selling the Varilight version of a dimmable CCFL for just under a tenner a few weeks ago - should still be similar price but can't confirm. TLC direct have the Varilight for £7.95 each (plus VAT and Delivery), reducing to £6.95 for orders over 2. So only really cheaper if buying in bulk or collecting in person.

The one linked to in the deal is "Switch Dimmable", it requires a standard light switch, not a dimmable one, and you use a combination of on / off flicks to set the lighting level. They also sell a version that operates off a normal* dimmable switch for the same price.

Rufus.

* WARNING - the normal dimmable switch ones are very fusy over dimmer switches. The dimmer must cope with a minimum load of 20W (most are 40W min), or you need to run two bulbs off the same dimmer. If running one bulb off a 40W dimmer you are likely to have too bright a light on it's minium setting AND blow the control electronics after a while. I was popping a Varilight bulb every 2 weeks before I found out (Homebase had an understanding returns policy). I was then faced with either spending £40 on a digital dimmer switch, or abandoning the idea. I now use a dimmable halogen!

Good price - you can also get Varilight DigiFlux dimmers from tlc-direct at a similar price delivered. We have a few of these in the house and they work well.
