Cheapest I've found for branded LED bulbs. 5.2w, 300Lm and dimmable. Equivalent to a 30w traditional bulb. Gives off a nice warm light too - not clinical like a lot of LEDs.

Delivery is £2.99 so if you only want a few, try CPC Farnell - slightly more expensive per bulb but free delivery over a fiver.

Just checking these are definitely dimmable? I don't see that in product description (though I'm browsing on a phone so apols if I missed it.)

I've not checked them myself (I've not got an LED dimmer) but according to Samsung's site (and a few other sites selling these for up to £18!) they are dimmable.

Might be a silly question, but do you have to be a business to purchase from Insight?

Only 170° beam angle which is low but for the price you can't moan. I've no idea what Samsung use chip wise but I think they are worth a punt...

It's best to look at the output rather than the amount of electricity the bulb uses. This one is 300lm which is about what you'd expect from a 30w incandescent bulb.

Yep...they're not the most efficient but at a little over £2 a pop they don't have to be

Depends what you want. I have 3 in a ceiling light fitting and they're fine. I also have a couple in the conservatory and again. fine. If you want to play a football match at night then I'd agree, they're a bit dim...

I have 2 light fittings(8 bulbs) to replace, bit confused as these are cheap for other bulbs I've prices up.. Any advice

I'm guessing these are 'old' tech as you'd probably expect a better light output for a power consumption of 5.2w. Saying that, Amazon have these at £10 each and if you look around the web, some places have them as much as £18.

hmm. def interested but ... Which direction does the light emit from. when used upright in ceiling fittings you'd want the light reflected down. also what kind of dimmer might you need.

They might not be quite as efficient as some but you're likely to have to heat the room anyway so does it matter?

Did you manage to order at this price, may be interested in buying them off you if you don't need them and returns are difficult. The price has gone up to £7.99 a bulb!

No I never sorry I realised just before x

No problem, thank you though.

They cannot fulfil the orders. Guff
