The 7w version says "dimmable" whilst the 4w says "non-dimmable".
I wonder why?

It's because one is dimmable and the other isn't simple as that The amount of Watts obfuscates the issue and isn't part of the reason why one is dimmable and the other isn't. The reasoning for this is there are 4W dimmable LED bulbs. Here's an example >

lightrabbit.co.uk/led…tml

I have just bought quite a dew of these and found them very bright.. In my comparisons the 7w is more like a 100w incandescent and the 4w more like a 60w.

Just been up Portland Bill lighthouse. Apparently it is due to have an LED bulb fitted...Current one is 1000w.

Got some of the LAP 60W-equivalent bulbs (they do a pack of about 4 or 6 for a great price) and they're a good warm white colour. They're brighter than most 60W equivalent CFLs. More like what a 60W really was.

These are very good and they look nifty too

I think the ones without the plastic bit are more attractive though

A++ rated so even more efficient then other led lights

Ive got the 3W version and WOW they are really really bright! Just like the old 60w versions!

Cheers, at this price it is time to replace all the lights, thats 5 x Bayonets for 3 bedrooms and the two hallway lights, 1 x E27 for the Living Room ceiling and 2 x E27 4w for two table lamps. £22 to basically replace all the house lights (Bathroom replaced with LED when it was refurbished, Kitchen bulbs will be replaced when that is).

They must use different transformers. the one driving the 7w obviously supports a variable voltage to step down.

awesome

Can you see the filament detail when the bulb is on or is it too bright. I always thought bulbs like this are not supposed to be so bright so that you can see the filament similar to those Trent restaurants and shops. Can anyone confirm?

When on you can barely see it, only when you look at it then blink :).
I know what you are saying, there are some very low lumen ones that are pretty much just for show, these are not them.

Who did they design these for though? I'll tell you who: for people who can't let goooooo.

I am looking for bulbs that a quite dim and show the filament, like those in restaurants. Does anyone have any recommendations? this looked better from screwfix but at £6.50 wondered if anyone has any suggestions. Alternative i can think of is dimming the £2.99 one

Can't see this has been posted and is clearly a better deal (yes it's 9w and not 7w) but if you want the 60w equiv wattage and not the 37w equiv you get from the 4w ones. Wow that's a mouthful..

Get these if you want bright but warm bulbs 5x for £10.

Grrr none available for collection in Midlands and they are just what I need and a bargain to boot.

These things don't last (unfortunately as they're nice lights).

They are the only LED bulbs I've ever had that've had issues with burning out early.

Very high wattage for a LED, I have 1w giving 700l GU10's for years.

Look good. Have ordered 4 of the BC fitting ones to try. Heat added.

Main link now showing as £2.99. Do I have to do something to get for £1.99 or is the deal finished?

The main link ones are £2.99, the 4w ones are £1.99

Nah, I'm not sure I've even seen any in the shops as low as 1W.

Most are 3W-10W. Lower end of the scale in lamps etc, higher end for your main ceiling light.

No you haven't. They're either lying about the wattage, or the lumens, or most likely both. The maximum theoretical efficiency of any light source is 683 lumens per watt, and that's for monochromatic light. All white light sources, including LEDs, are way below that.

I find the LED filament bulbs produce a nicer and more even light compared to older LED bulbs.

thanks picking mine up later

It's most likely that they're 3x1w LED bulbs.

Fantastic price. 3 yr guarantee as well (keep the receipt!!). Purchased a similar one at Amazon for twice the price recently, so happy to get these BC at £2.99. I've got 4 out of 7 left in Exeter Sowton, so I can put these in some lamps I am refurbishing.

Try CPC I get all my bulbs from them, the Pro Lec range have never let me down, they are really cheap and really fast delivery, web page is a bit of a mare to navigate cpc.farnell.com/lig…bes

just a remnder these only last one third of standard led products, ask for a filament that last 20k hours plus and you will also need a compatiable dimmer switch to enable for the lamp to dim =- Phil

I bought some of these about a week ago, before I'd seen it listed as a 'Deal' here - This is a normal price now, LEDs are getting cheaper all the time. £1/2/3 a bulb is the new normal.

Anyway, they're very bright and look nice but there's a small issue;

There's an almost imperceptible flicker to them, you can't really see it, but rapidly moving objects in the same room are sort of affected by the Wagon-Wheel or Stroboscopic effect.

It can be a bit off putting.

Ah shame thanks

I'm a bit disappointed in these now. My fault. I'm so used to cool white. They feel a bit old fashioned, which some people will love.

Good light output from these. Happy with the product, with price paid and energy usage.

Just to add to this, I have these bulbs in my upstairs and downstairs hallway and all 3 bedrooms and have not noticed a single bit of flickering.

Bought two 7W to replace existing "normal" LEDs in class light fittings. Great output - as good/better than the previous 8W bulbs, look far nicer and haven't noticed any strobing yet (just that slight nanosecond delay on startup). Dimming is not an issue for me, so now to see how long they last....................
