Found 30th Dec 2015
Price on bulbs seems to have gone silly in supermarkets recently with sainsburys selling totally inefficient 60w bulbs for £4 each when I was looking yesterday

These are £2 each and will use 85.5% less electricity

seem to be oos everywhere i look


I was searching for the screw ins and loads at my 3 local stores
No bayonets though

No stock near me either

Loads of screw in near me as well shame I'm after bayonet all oos

Good deal though

I got the last of the bayonet bulbs near me last week and there rely nice they give a good warm light and they turn on instantly which is a nice novelty compared to my old energy saving bulbs used to have which took ages to warm up. In short highly recommended!

Good deal but OOS in all 6 branches within 20 miles of me.

These are recommended, bright and reliable, got one in every room... and garage... and shed.... and...

I have recently bought some led filament bulbs, they are so much better than the standard led bulbs which I bought from home bargains, brighter and better light spread. Got mine from Aliexpress for £2.20 a bulb.

More than double the price per bulb though

Not if you wait a few weeks for them to come from china, if you prefer old bulbs to leds you will love these.

Out of stock, HULL

Out of stock anywhere near me

I bought these bulbs a couple of weeks ago. They are very good and I recommend you these. I have been trying to get some more but they have been out of stock everywhere since . Yesterday in Edmonton branch I went personally and asked the sales assistant when they will be in stock. He said he can't give me a date.

Beware of cheap LED bulbs. I bought 4 generic bulbs last year for a magnificent £8. Just over a year on, I've edited my Amazon review to reflect that only 2 are still working. Nothing wrong with the LEDs, in fact they are fantastic and WILL lower electricity bulbs hugely. However the switch mode power supplies which step the 230 (or whatever it really is) down are cheap, nasty, and rubbish. THey will cost you a small fortune in replacement bulbs. I'm not sure which works out cheaper to operate overall, but I do find changing bulbs irritating.

2 points to make about LED Lamps

1.. Don't go by the wattage its lumen's I have sourced thro my work same wattage and a difference of 200/300 lumens between the cheap one and dearer one also the cheaper lamps have there LED Chip ramped up to the max because its a cheap chip the give a brighter output ,,, So a good saying to go by here Buy Branded and replace once Buy Cheap Unbranded Replace a few times !!!!!!

2.. Cheap sales trick used by retailers brin in LTD Stock advertise heavy run out then you buy a another brand and they make more GP out of you !!!!!

They've been out of stock most places since I posted a month ago. Waiting for a re-stock so I can order some more.

Totally agree Filament LED bulbs are the way forward. Much better light distribution as they dont have the big plastic heat diffuser at the bottom of the bulb and look more like a traditional bulb.

Loads at Toolstation from about £3+

for some reason, Dunelm Mill have very good prices on light bulbs, much better than supermarkets. I stocked up when I discovered that.

Aberdeen, Elgin, Dundee, Glenrothes and Perth all come up as stock.
Plenty in my area. Good price

Thats why you buy from Screwfix/Toolstation or one of the established outlets, they are very good quality I must admit and I have loads from China, yes sure they all come from there anyway but the big boys will filter the better ones through or re-brand them. I normally buy what the trade buys from such outlets, I avoid Amazon and Ebay unless I am just testing them out.

When I searched for screw-ins, I got banned from the library oO

I'm in the same boat as everyone. Looking for bayonet bulbs but stock and cost seems higher. Has anyone tried the Bayonet to Edison converters? I'm thinking of just converting them all to Edison

Toolstation have very similar bulbs(slighly stronger than Screwfix) for the same money and stock available in most stores

​bought 5 LAP LED GU10 bulbs from screwfix 3 months ago, 2 already blown....

These are back in stock to order now - the cool white with a shade give a really nice bright light, not too warm or cool.

I was in store today and asked about these. they were able to order them into store tomorrow

I tried that with GU10s

Bought 40 Philips ones from Tescos, lucky I kept the receipt

I was taking maybe 5 back a fortnight for 3m and getting them replaced.. after 3m I realised it was futile and took them back and got refunds each time
did get cheap electric for maybe 12m
and thren somehow the prices really plummeted over last few years from £5 to £2

Bought some unbranded ones 18m ago and touch wood all working prefectly to date

I thought they were £9.99 for them..
