Bunnings at Hemel had a similar deal on old Homebase stock when in there yesterday - they had a 2 pack of their own brand of this size and fitting, for 50p. Not Osram, but maybe worth a visit as they had pallet loads of other bulbs there.
Decided to add two more under cabinet lights but only enough room to fit this size lamp bought two transformers to bring mains lighting to 12 volts to fit this type... amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1
I'm not saying they won't last - I'm saying they'll flicker depending on the light fitting.
obviously the pound shop ones aren't Osram.

Deal with it. I also note how you have commented on other deals pointing out that adaptors aren't ideal. Hypocrite? Someone said its the standard in the UK, in reply to me, not you. I replied saying not for lamps. I want this for a lamp, so it does matter. Its not me being difficult, this is not me trying to correct someone. This is me stating that while this person feels it may be the solution for most people, its not for me. Again my view in reply to a comment to ME. Not you. I don't care what you think. On the adaptor, my comment on it "needs to be the other way around" was a genuine one. This was not me correcting the poster. This was me thinking that this bulb was not the solution for me. The ikea adaptors are not the correct solution, i didn't realise there were alternatives. So the correctness here matters. In the end another poster sent me a link to the ones i needed, and i thanked them and ordered 3 bulbs! I did not thank the poster who tried to look smugly correct, when they were in fact not correct.

People post here mostly to help others find bargains, while many of your posts in this thread seem to focus on ensuring you're right and everyone else is irrelevant.Now, so that i don't waste any more time reading your views, which i frankly do not care about and are not helpful in helping me or other understand the potential solutions out there...consider yourself blocked.

Aaaanyway, bringing the discussion back on topic.... 🙄

Ordered this, hue hub found it on 3rd attempt - secret seems to be to simultaneously turn bulb on and hit search in hub app.

Control is perfect via hue app, also via Alexa although only seems to be able to set colour to blue via Alexa, and sometimes doesn’t turn off via Alexa, but that might just be my config - I’ve noticed Alexa seems to take a while to “settle down” when you add new stuff?

Think some reviews mentioned an issue with the green colour, mine seems fine ??

Overall this works almost faultlessly, although my other hue bulbs are not colour so I have no comparison. Happy with it for the price.

From personal and professional experience there is a massive difference in ingress protection (IP) and cost between IP44 and IP67. While IP44 might not be sufficient for all IP67 is overkill. IP68 is submersible protection so unless you are spongebob or ratty IP54/55/56 will suffice. No need to go to the expense of IP67.
It still amazes me how few manufacturers are making outside LED lights that are vaguely nice and also affordable. I know Phillips make a few. This seems quite nice.

I have several of these and they are as good as Philips Hue in my opinion …I have several of these and they are as good as Philips Hue in my opinion (i have those as well). £9.99 is a great price for an RGB bulb. Osram have a standard 2 year guarantee with these as well.


They're far inferior to Hue. If you're Whites are too cool then the bulbs start to have a slight buzz until you turn down the brightness to about 80.

The colours are also much weaker and transitions between colours are jarring compared to Hue.

They're also a lot flakier sometimes claiming to be Unreachable and sometimes performing actions never asked for.

All that said though, I would buy at this price or even the 3 bulbs and bridge for £39.99 as it's still much cheaper than a Hue bulb which is normally £25 when on a decent offer.
Yes, Yee Light colour change RGB versions are usually around £14 but less than a tenner if you pick your time and website. The White only versions are usually less than a tenner.
Fun thing with the colour change version is to use the app and phone camera to 'sample' your wall colour so the bulb matches.
Get a yeelight as jayR says. Excellent bulb and simple to control. Wait for a price drop at Gear best tho.
Was tempted but price now over £30.

Reading reviews from a few different retailers and it looks like these osram bulbs don't usually last very long and most people cannot connect these to their Phillips hue hub at all. I didn't actually know that the ikea remotes don't work with the hue hub, something I'll look out for! I guess if you want the perfect experience with hue hub / app (right now) then your probably going to have to get hue bulbs.

Yep for now most of my IKEA bulbs are still on the IKEA bridge but it isn't ideal. I am hoping when everything converges on zigbee 3.0 they will all work together.

By the way the equivalent IKEA GU10 is £12 not £7 - these are tunable white / white spectrum, the cheaper IKEA GU10s are warm white. It's academic now but this deal was substantially cheaper if you are doing something like a kitchen (in my house I have about 40 GU10s, those in modern houses may well have more).

Not used these bulbs myself but the reviews around the internet speak for themselves. http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/lighting/smart-lighting/trådfri-led-bulb-gu10-400-lumen-wireless-dimmable-warm-white-art-80365270/

I have IKEA ones myself, but they are more expensive and this is a "deal"

Also the IKEA ones have big limitations with hue themselves with regard to firmware versions, the app is a but rubbish and you can't use the remotes or dimmers with hue (annoyingly as the IKEA remotes are excellent and cheap)

Good option for those with E14 lamps etc. These work well. Hub required!
Get dealGet deal
Great deal, I've already got eight of these and at this price it would be silly not to add to the collection.
Most of the problems with flickering and random switching on can be rectified with a firmware update.
Also if you take the time to pair them correctly they work just fine.
I posted these when they were £16, bought 6 of them then and they have been fine. Occasionally they show in the Hue app as not connected even when they are, or Alexa says they aren't responding even after shes turned them on, but for the price compared to the Hue ones i don't really care about these small issues. I have them in my hall and landing which is where the hub is so i cant comment on the issues about the repeaters

Is there an app that will allow use of all smart bulbs if you have a combination of hue, these and yeelight for example?
Great price. I have a mixture of Innr and Hue bulbs at the moment. At this price I'll give these a try.

Worth noting that the GU10's are down to £13.49 as well.

Yes they are, at more that twice the price.
These work fine for me.
As usual I wonder why I bother with this site.

Bought these a year ago, so far two have ended up failing. Both failed the
same way producing high frequency flashing. Avoid Osram.
What really annoys me is that the old 150W bulbs (useful for large spaces) don't seem to have been replaced by any low-energy equivalents - at least not at sensible prices.

There must be others out there who want brighter than 100W equivalent?
ordered some of these earlier in the year and one has stop working already after only light use
These are only really good for small spaces like cupboards. My favourite is the Philips ones that provide 1521 lumens that for me seem to be closest to their halogen counterparts

Cheers


I have a couple of the Innr bulbs too and I know they have to be added to the hub in a very specific way, is there a certain way the Osram one have to be added maybe?

With the Innr you have to start the search in the app then turn the build on, from some reading I've done the Osram seem to be the same.

Check out the Ikea TRÅDFRI range of smart bulbs before purchasing....



smarthomegeeks.co.uk/new…er/

From what i have seen the IKEA bulbs are not compatible with the Hue setup, which was what i needed.

Philips have already backtracked over locking out third parties from the Hue ecosystem so i cant imagine them doing it again, but you never know.
A good price but a shame the temperature doesn't go as low as the Philips white ambiance.

Those HID in reflectors you refer to are likely cheap Chinese kits with Halogen bulb bases i.e. H7. You can also get factory HIDs in reflectors too which don't blind but they require a bulb with an R suffix, i.e. D1R



I know, I have one of the Chinese sets in my main beam for use on country roads, because instead of being sensible and fitting bi-xenon's to mine, they decided to fit a second set of alternate halogen mains!

They should - it's all to do with beam pattern. The rotters take them out and put their normal bulbs in for one day a year though, dazzling everyone.

Shame they only appear to have the 60 watt type ones as I have been after 100 watt in the b22 warm white for a while now, the 60 watt just not bright enough for a main room light (though fine for lamps) IMHO. Anyone know if they have a similar deal on the 100 watt anywhere?



I've just bought some 100w 2700lm Philips bulbs but they were £15 for 3 @ B&Q.... cheapest I could find them though and good bulbs.

Home Bargains had 60w LED bulbs a while ago for £2.50 each and I thought that was good. So this is a great deal.
