Just a friendly thought.
Better make the headline more obvious that this pac contains 5 bulbs or you will get cold votes (because people will mistake this offer for one bulb).
Hot from me.

robert days still doing 10 bulps for £1, this one is good if you don't have Robert days..

Also doing 10 for a quid in Denelm Mill, not Philips but Osrams (I think) - the brand you see everywhere not some cheapos ...

Good price for a Brand name.

In my experience, Philips light bulbs are the worst of all brands. I wouldn't use them even if they were free.

And why is that sir/madam?

Osram 10 for a £1.00 at Dunelm Mill

Yeah, not had problems with the 8 or so Philips in my place ...

Cold. These things take ages to warm up.

My Philips light bulb in my Kitchen is 5 years old with daily use and still working like new!

I have a 17 year old phillips light bulb in my shed. Yes, seventeen. I remember when I installed my shed in 1992

He never goes into the shed though!:-D

hmm well done to you both. and i thought sainsburys were doing five of these for 50p?

Put 30 philips compacts in some student accommodation in 1995 some are still going well now:thumbsup:

Saw these in a dump bin in the Birmingham store. They had ones that are equivalent to 40W and 60W bulbs. All 5 for £1. Good price!

I think the philips ones are quite good (although, I don't have other brands to compare to - I've never bought one, just keep getting them as freebies!).

It takes longer to warm up than normal bulbs, but it gives out enough light while it is warming and its then at full brightness after a minute or 2. I can't see why people moan about warm up times - its not as if you can't see during the process.

However, I do think they are dimmer than the equivalents on the packet, easily solved by getting a brighter one!

I work there, been this price for a wile now. Normally on shopfloor

What people seem to forget with such claims is this: How often, since 1962, have your parents had to go into the loft and switch on the light?

Surely it is pointless to compare a scarcely-used bulb with one in constant daily use?

I kind of think that was his point.

Nops, obviosuly he knws the day he put up his shed so... knows the bulb age too ;-)

These energy bulbs are poo if you dont mind me saying. They are so dim. Dim when switched on, they do get brighter. Did you hear about the thing on the news. Something about they are no good for people with eye sight problems. let me google it

"They say replacement lower energy bulbs do not provide enough light, causing problems for people with poor vision.

The government admitted there was a problem but said that alternatives were still available
"

So we sit in the dark while they have nice normal bright bulbs :x

Cold - 37p for 5 of the same bulbs at Sainsbury's. Ta to the mods for deleting that deal posting, though.
