those appear to be out of stock, however the 5 pack is better value. I have the cool white version which is just right, not quite as cool as some other bulbs

​cheers I will wait for the warm ones to come back in stock

I've got the warm white 100w equivalent version... £15 for 3 at B&Q. Good bulbs.

Screwfix 5 pack are really good. Nice bright light. 8w though from what I remember whereas your first link of 3 pack is 9w (?)

Before buying a job lot it's worth checking if you still prefer the yellow tint to light or prefer cold white or daylight version. The whiter light is harsher to look at if you stare at the bulb, but after recently switching to them I now prefer the ambiance to the warm white spectrum bulbs.

I need a few 120 to 150 watt equivalent instant on energy saving bulbs. Preferably warm white. Any recommendations?

Will be 1000% better than the dreadful Eveready branded junk that B&M usually sell.

can you buy long kitchen bulbs as led? Sorry but i don't know what they are called lol

​the Philips have much better colour balance than any screwfix own brand I've tried. they are generally amongst the best on the market. they don't flicker, they don't buzz, they achieve their stated brightness, for their stated lifetimes and have good colour balance.

Something like this?

I bought a pack of Osram 60w equivelant bulbs recently...while the bulb itself stays cool, the plastic body which I suspect holds some electronics of some sort, gets hot enough that it cant be held. (not that I regularly hold the bulb when its on...I moved a bulb that had been on, to another ceiling rose during decorating)

This makes me think they aren't genuine, or is this a "normal" thing with LED bulbs?

Would be interested to know if these Philips bulbs have the same "issue" ...surely excessive heat is a fault?

Thats normal, LED bulbs have a heatsink in the base to dissipate heat, hence why they have the white section at the bottom.

​it contains the transformer to convert from 240v AC to 12v DC. one day home lighting circuits will do the sensible thing and not require individual light fittings to step down the voltage now that we have thoroughly moved away from tungsten lamps. in the meantime we have a compromise.

Unfortunately yes, it's more or less "normal" and the cause of death of most LED bulbs.
It's more of a problem the higher the wattage, so a 3W bulb might be fine, but a 9W will have problems in a hot environment (I wonder how they hold up in countries like Spain)

If possible, always buy bulbs that have ventilation fins at the bottom.

This used to be the case, and is certainly the case for cheap imports, but the big brands have this problem resolved now. Despite the casing feeling pretty hot to the touch, this is within designed range and the electronics will cope, and the lights will deliver their *stated* lifetime, on average. Some will fail early, some will not fail at all (they will simply become so dim after 100k hours that you'll decide to replace them anyway).

I wouldn't worry too much about this for the well known brand lights.

I agree, daylight white is much cleaner and fresher looking especially in kitchens and bathrooms etc.

​Personally i think cool white should be for rooms where you use the lights during the daytime, but stick to warm white for evening use.
