For SES, this seems a bargain.

Is this instore only?

Oops sorry, just answered my own question! Online too (although obviously massive delivery if you only buy them :-D)

Good price, I paid more than this for a standard one!

If only they supported a normal dimmer they would be ok to replace my 40w SES golfballs with relatively small drop in light output...

At this price they're the same price as filament SES so I might give it a try...

No good for me - they only have the SES at 9w rating - so not really any use for replacing 40W bulbs...

They do have 'twisted candle' or 'energy spiral' versions at 3 for £2 which would look a lot better in my light fittings but these have an even lower output (7w or 8w) .

Could be useful for some folks - so HOT deal.

9 Watt version is 'similar to' the light otput of a 40 Watt soft white bulb, so it should replace it ok.

Thanks for the info; however the bulbs I will be replacing are clear - the reason many people find low energy bulbs 'dim' is due to the light output often being over stated and always compared to 'soft-white bulbs'. The charts use around a 4 or 5:1 ratio - but when replacing clear bulbs 3:1 is perhaps more realistic. In lots of cases the lower light output won't matter much - but my lounge is already a little dim :thumbsup:

Agreed, our problem precisely in the lounge, small screw bulbs are expensive for higher output, unless you don't mind sitting in dimly lit room all night! Anyway as for the lasts 10 year boast, others around the house only last 3-4 years for some reason and thats back when they cost £3-4 each, thankfully with all the cheap offers nowadays I don't mind changing every few years but still not close to 7-10 year estimate!
