These are nice and bright.
Good value. Good bulbs.
Many thanks just ordered some
Purchased these before. They are excellent. Will get some more. Thanks for posting!
Thanks, I've been waiting for these to come back in stock.
Recommended....
Wouldn't you want warm white, bit softer.
£5 postage though - anyway around this?

No these are non-dimmable X)
grabbed a box of these a little while ago, they are great, as bright if not brighter than a regular 60w, and unlike energy saving ones, instant fullk brightness when switched on. Just ordered another box for collection, thanks OP

Anyone recommend any like these but a dimmable version ?
Order for collection. Thanks, have some well deserved heat!

With shades these are really nice - not too blue or yellow.

More like 75W replacements too as 806Lumen
Bought these back in November. Brilliant bulbs. Perfect white light and very bright. Very impressed with these highly recommended. Hot!
Ordered for my dad.
Thank you.
thank you just bought + voted hot
trying to save on electricity bills...
...so i can spend more on HUKD
:P
Do leds last longer than your traditional?
ordered the warm white, thanks
the promo code has expired though
Brilliant!, thanks OP, ordered! Needed the screwfix taps on here too so got 2 mixer taps & a pack of bulbs for £55 & free delivery!, looked at similar bulbs to these at near £10 each!, hell of a saving!!
Ordered the warm white, thanx op +heat
How do these compare to the toolstation ones on here a while ago. I got some of those and they seem good, though find skin tones look a little grey if directly under them, which seems a common issue with the cheaper (non Philips or osram) bulbs

Nope, daylight every time, cool white at push. Life would be boring if we were all the same.
Are these dimmable?
6w = 60w with 25000 hours life and A++ rating , can be bought from eBay for the same price
Had cool white before and it felt like being inside a fridge. Now go for warm white everywhere but the kitchen where I go with daylight types.

I think the words 'non dimmable' in the bullet points on their product page might be the giveaway.....
I think they should rename cool white - harsh white oO
Thanks for this, missed out the last time! Ordered a box of each so hopefully won't need to buy a new bulb for a long long time...

I changed every bulb in our house to LED and it made a massive difference to our energy useage.
If I didn't have the wifi energy consumption meter to prove it I would never have believed it.

There is a little bit of luck needed though, I've had a couple blow quite early on in their life, the last a phillips LED did me for about 3 hours and they don't take them back.

They last a lot longer than traditional incadescent bulbs but compared to cfl I'm not yet convinced on their stated llifespan as they're newish technology I suppose we'll only really know for sure in a few years.
I bought these bulbs (in the warm white option) a few weeks ago and was surprised at how they were so different to the same wattage LEDs I bought 6 months earlier.
These are a lot brighter for the wattage and weigh very similar to a traditional bulb were as my slightly older LED bulbs are quite heavy and not as bright.

Who doesn't take them back? I had an LED die after 2 months, took it back to Homebase and got a refund no problem.

LAP bulbs are great. I have a dimmable one in the front room, no buzzing or flickering whereas an Ikea one I also have buzzes and flickers like mad. That is down to the dimmer switch not being 'compatible' but if LAP can do it then so can all the other manufacturers.

I've got one of these in my outside light, my review on there also has a couple of photos. Again, a good bulb that looks nice too and works well so far. screwfix.com/p/l…51f
FYI there are 4 options available at the same price - bayonet and screw each with cool or warm white.

What do you spend your extra £3.50 a year on?
