In what way are they equivalent to a normal 60W bulb ? Certainly not in brightness.

Of course they are equivelent in brightness, they just take a few minutes to build up to 60w worth of light.

Buy which time you've been and gone :-D

Why are these so cheap lately? Everyone and their dog seems to be selling them for next to nothing at the moment.

Recent deal had them for 5p each, not same brand.

is the small screw cap included?

The thing is, they use less electricity and if you let them charge up, your actually safer leaving them on than letting them cool off and then turning them back on.

Although whatever you like, they don't need replacing as much as conventional bulbs and use less electricity which means you ultimately save a lot of money, 5 times less in running cost and over 5 times the life span, but who cares about money eh?

Modern CFLS are fast to start, get to full brightness quickly, flicker free, offer 80% energy saving and last 6 times as long as a conventional filament lamp.

What's not to like about them?

Modern ones are mostly great. I usually go for the old-style round energy savers (they look nicer). They'll last at least 5 years, and they pump out much less heat which is great in the summer!
I've been stun gin the past with cheap ones which emit very blue/white light - haven't had one of them for ages though.

The deal includes screwcaps as well. They're not clearly labled - so you have to look at the picture or the product code on the top of the box.

B22 is for Bayonet
E## is for Screw

They light up very quickly - already using this range (freebies from EDF) around the house, particularly in heat sensitive locations liked wardrobes, loft eaves etc.

They're no good for dimmer switches though - so no mood lighting... ;-)

5 for 50p in Poundstretcher, if you don't have a need for ten.

only bayonet in my local poundland....cold

Didn't you read the OP lol:p

I have some of the brighter (14w I think?) ones at home and they hum which is really annoying. Also, they are still dim. When I changed one in our bathroom back to a regular 60w bulb it was like walking back into daylight.

This is all assuming you return to said room within a reasonable time frame. Leaving any light on for more than a couple of minutes in an empty room is just wasting energy.

But yes, i've yet to replace a failed energy saving bulb :thumbsup:

My flat is full of spotlamps on dimmers though. Try finding energy saving bulbs for those which don't cost a fortune and provide anywhere near the same light levels. :?

These are cheap but I really dislike the type of lighting they produce.

So are they brighter or dimmer?? If they're not this make I don't see your point.

You need fancy new LED bulbs. They are quite expensive right now but they are coming down in price and in the long run should replace all light bulbs.

good! just moved house... a good idea to get stocked!! heat added

This is a bargain for the screw fitting ones.
I have some Philips bulbs here and they reach full brightness in around 1 minute.
Some people have so little patience!

Absolutely!

I'm an energy assessor and these are by far the quickest and easiest way to reduce your energy bills!

i'm in austria and they cost over 5 quid each! so, buy a thousand for 100quid, fly over here, have a holiday, flog them for a quid each and go home with 500quid profit!
okay, you've got to find a buyer fast though!

From what I understand the size I need (GU10 I think) are too directional and the dimming has limited steps rather than true dimming.

Oh and they cost over a tenner each!

Be good once they improve and come down in price though :thumbsup:

Ye I know they are not quite there yet. However once they are improved a little and reach a mass market we should all be using them.

i get the highest wattage ones i can for about 10p each and am slowly changing all the bulbs in the house

they seem fine to me, i'm not used to the old fashioned pebulbs as we had halogen bulbs all through when i moved out of my parents place :-D

my housemate never complains about them being dim or flickering and she moans about EVERYTHING
