Would these bulbs be any good for a white box set-up with desk lamps I'm new the whole photography thing and I need something that burns white. 9 Dec 2014
I'm no photographer, but this light bulb does burn white and has a lot more lumens than a standard bulb thus making it alot brighter. It is like daylight!! Hope this helps
Hi. I'm not an expert on these bulbs, I'm a user and you can see the kind of problems I've had along with other people. I use them in sockets that are rated 60watt tungsten so you can make your own mind up on that issue. What I will say is they do get quite warm if used for extended periods of time. No where near as hot as a 100watt tungsten equivalent but still, somewhat warmer than I expected.
Is this bulb suitable for close craft work? 4 Jul 2014
Yes, more so than the usual yellow bulbs as this shows colours properly and without the normal yellow tint of standard bulbs. I use it mainly because I do photo editing and print the results to see what it looks like after printing to ensure the printed version has the correct colours. It's better used as a main light than for a lamp as it would be too bright to be close to. However, it gives off a lot of light so will be bright enough not to need a table lamp in an average size room.
My fitting will take maximum 40w bulb of the old type, does that mean it can take 40w of the new energy saving lightbulb which is equivalent to 200w? 25 Nov 2014
logic would suggest it can take it, but it must be all to do with the heat a bulb produces..(not wanting to melt the fitting), so again, as energy saving bulbs do not waste heat it would seem to be safe to assume "yes" ...
I must have a faulty bulb? The light is so dim, I can't even see in any of the rooms I have tried them in. 10 Mar 2015
You definitely have a faulty bulb, mine gives a bright white light almost on start up.
is this bulb dimmable? 13 Feb 2014
Hi Nadia instructions on the packaging states "This device is not intended for use on dimming circuits. Never use more than 25 lamps per 20 amp branch circuit. Can be used with tees or photocells designed for fluorescent use." Hope this answers your question.
