Of course the government doesn't want us to buy these anymore and the eco-fascists will vote cold, if you are happy with energy saving bulbs, then buy those, but if you really don't like the energy saving bulbs this is a good deal.

I guess I am an eco-fascist then, when you can get 4 energy savers for about a pound on various offers why waste money on these, 5 times the energy consumption and 1/10th the life.

as it says - 6 for 48p

As said these are rare as rocking horse plop so it's worth getting a few while you can...

I'm all for saving energy - and more to the point money - but find the eco bulbs are more like candles for the 1st 20 mins of being turned on. Normal bulbs are a must for some purposes!

most new style energy bulbs are near instant, and better quality light. never used a std bulb in years cold for me.... GO! ECO-FASCISTS GO!

Please DO NOT vote on "eco" grounds, it like compaing a push bike to a car.

HOT deal

NO MORE ECO DEBATE PLEASE

The eco-fascists are shooting themselves in both feet with the energy saving bulbs. They all contain small amounts of mercury and most of them are going to go to landfill where the small amounts will add up and poison the environment. They are an environmentally unfriendly time bomb.

I'm voting HOT for this deal, I only wish I could vote several times.

I'm going to have to stock up, I'm an artist and I need higher intensity light bulbs to work with. The Eco-friendly ones are all well and good, and most of hte lightbulbs in the house have been replaced with them, but the ones in rooms I work in have to be standard bulbs. And now the EU says I soon won't be able to get them anymore?!

Madness.

Simplicity

So use MORE of them, you can get a room bright enough to fade the ink on the five pound notes you will still save, and have the added benefit of FAR less shadow than with GLS bulbs.

Even better - I sent SWMBO a txt to buy two packs as she was in town...
The packs she got for £1 had 10 bulbs in each - 10p a bulb !
4 x 100W
4 X 60W
2 x 40W
so i have plenty now - the glass bit is smaller than your average bulb, but the bayonet is standard size 1

Where's the money saving there then . Most rooms if they have one light fitting , you can only use one bulb. Therefore does he get a sparky in to add more light fittings and pay them charges on top of the cost of using more eco friendly bulbs?

Bought some non eco bulbs for my old mum recently ( eyesight going - needs 100 watt for her office) - Poundland had strips of 5 or 6 x 100 watt in a pack before these mixed packs arrived. Think they were better value, because the lower watts aren't much different to the eco bulbs, it's the 100w that are sought after. But any opportunity to get them is good -so hot. I look forward to deals on eco bulbs that are equal to 150w old bulb ...

I never thought I would need to explain something as simple as this! Still, why use a simple solution when you can dream up a more complicated one involving an electrician to make a point which isn't there!
The clinging reluctance to move on to Low Energy compact fluorescent lamps is simply the usual reluctance to change to new things, even when that change is in EVERYONE'S interest and there is barely a trace of justification to lighting homes using filamant GLS bulbs now, it is simply Dinosaur mentality :-(

A single lamp located high in the middle of a room has always been a very poor way to light a room, and still is - extra task lighting makes a WORLD of difference, even with filament lamps, and if you need EXTRA bright lighting, which most people don't really need, then there are Halogen lamps which are less energy efficient, than compact fluorescent lamps, but FAR brighter than GLS lamps, and still only use 45 or 50% the power.

Table lamps, wall lamps and floor lamps have been around centuries longer than the concept of a lamp in the middle of the ceiling, I had them before low energy bulbs, and still have them - they make a lot of difference to lighting a room, still, if you don't have any, you can even stick a 30W low energy lamp in the middle of the ceiling, and suffer nearly as much shadow and glare as a 150W GLS bulb would give!
45W of lighting in a room using low energy bulbs, (say 3x 15W ones) will make for a pretty bright room in most homes, and be a LOT brighter than one 100W GLS lamp! That still saves more than 50% of the electricity, the rest of the savings are obvious enough with the extended lifespan of the lamps over that of bulbs; especially seeing as they are SO cheap now!

If you don't have enough sockets in a room for a couple of table or floor lamps, then its probably just as well to use low energy bulbs anyway, the wiring must be very antique, and I wouldn't recommend overloading it!

In any case, in case anyone else thinks otherwise - I am most certainly not an Eco-anything, I will be long dead and gone before I would need to worry about the planet - what I am is someone with restricted income that likes paying LESS for a more comfortable end result, and if having a room as bright and well lit as I want, without the bother of constantly buying and replacing bulbs for significantly less than half the price of having a poorly lit room, then that's my idea of a good deal :-)

You can get 30W ones now if you look - they still use a fifth the power, and mean NOT climbing up to replace them something like 8 times over their lifespan - I would think that is something beneficial for the elderly.
My eyes are getting poorer too - hence the reason NOT to have only one glaring bulb in the room!
#13
thanks - any idea where at a cheap price? I've also got stuck with a load of table lamps that only take golf ball old style bulbs which I'd love to replace. Also, we put an eco bulb in our living room last week and it's really weird, think there must be something wrong with it as it gives out a gloomy no light effect unlike all the others. One of us is going to have to get the chair out and change it...
