Those "equivalent to" ratings are completely seperated from reality.
In practice, the only ones worth using for lighting a room are the 20W bulbs.

True, but the lower wattages are physically smaller, so handy for table lamps, desk lamps etc..

Should point out that this offer also covers the more usual BC (bayonet cap) fitting, and there is also a range of small screw and BC bulbs included, which makes it far better than the multitude of energy saving bulb offers running at present..

BTW, this offer was posted a few weeks ago, but it's so useful, that I think this is a welcome reminder.

nice one, was looking for edison fitting

I bought a few of these ~ tried the 20w ones and they take over a minute to warm up & give their full light output..

OK for a light that'll be left on for a long while or used in outdoor fittings but in this case, my opinion is, cheap = nasty

All energy saving bulbs take time to warm up.

If the room is currently fitted with a 100w traditional bulb then a 20w energy saving one is the equivalent.

11W versions are best fitted where you've previously had 60W bulbs. Fitting a 20w bulb in such location would provide you a brighter light (once warmed up)

I've even got an 8W spiral type fitted to a table lamp that was originally fitted with a 60W candle bulb. I tried a 12W originally but once it had warmed up, it was just too bright.

do some research! they all take time to warm up!

Energy savings bulbs are still flawed, but they have there uses and as the name says do save energy! As someone stated above, I find they are good for outside lights where you dont need them to warm up immediately and you dont need mega-brightness. The saving is great in that application.
These Morrisons ones are good simply because of the variety of size and fitting, though the higher wattage ones are too large for most fittings!

I have a 20w (100w) Osram bulb in my hallway and that takes a while to warm up too. I don't think its a brand fault more a technological flaw.

CFL bulbs are not the godsend they appear. The light they give out is inferior (even when warmed up) and they don't last nearly as long as claimed.

By far the worst thing about them though is that they all contain small amounts of mercury and without proper recycling facilities and incentives most of them are going to find their way to landfill where the mercury will leech out into the water table and eventually contaminate our water supply and the fish we eat. Despite the government propaganda they are not yet an environmentally friendly option.

the 20w equivelent to 100w is mesured in luminins for an avge 100w bulb 20w equivelent should shine near the same amount. just the light spectrum coulour is slightly different as for bad sides apart from enviromental when we tip em only bad side is you cant use with a dimmer switch due to impeadance changes and blows components up when dimmmers cutt the top off the 240v ac waveforms. As for when we throw them away dont ya think 1 bulb over 10 yrs is beta than 25 where do the flurecent bulbs contain murcury anyway ive never heard that unless its part of a compound inside the tube

What a patronising response.

I know that all CFL's take time to warm up but having purchased many different brands over the years, I have found these to be amongst the worst.

Despite all the arguments for and against these 'energy saving bulbs' I think just 6 bulbs for less than 50p aint bad.

None in Sheffield
