Trust me when I say that I was a die hard sceptic when it comes to low energy bulbs. In fact in the last days of tungsten, I bought 2 large boxes of the old 100W tungsten bulbs. Why? Well, I simply hated the old yellowy light of the first gen low energy bulbs, and I hated the idea of a future lifetime, in dreary, tired, washed out, buttery yellow light. You all know what the first generation of tungsten bulbs were like. They weren't just horrible. They were buttery yellow horrible.

But I kept my mind open. And when I saw just how many five star reviews here for these low energy Tornado bulbs, I just had to try them for myself. So, I recently took my chances and bought one of these - if only, just to see if the newer generation of low energy bulbs gave out light which you could read a book for hours by. And I am glad to report as follows:

Two lamps set up at 9pm - one with a 70watt tungsten bulb and another with this 23W Tornado, and quite unbelievably, the tornado is brighter than a 70W tungsten bulb. Not only is it brighter but its light tone is definitely a very pleasingly bright whitish light. Its light is whiter in tone than that of the tungsten which I tested it beside. Now that is excellent! Kiss goodbye and good riddance to that dreary, yellowy light from the first gen of low energy bulbs: These tornado's are truly excellent. Albeit not quite the expected 130W of brightness that its packaging claims - it's more akin to 90W, in tungsten terms. Nonetheless, because that's a very respectably bright 90W of light, from a deceivingly alluring low energy bulb, I will definitely be buying more. And believe me, I hated the idea of being forced to say goodbye to tungsten bulbs, within the past two years. But now, I'm most happily a convert to a brighter, low energy future - at least as far as these 23W Philips Tornado bulbs go. Replace your bulbs with these and you ought to become just as happy with your choice.

I have often wondered if 'low energy' light bulbs are so called because they suck the life out of you.

Maybe it's the fact that when you turn on the light switch there is still time to trip over in the dark before the light comes on. Maybe it's the fact they have a hue which is the colour of an old man's vest. Or maybe it's because their longevity feels more a threat than a treat: they just sit there, two expensive to discard, too pious to disdain, like a dutiful but reluctant aged retainer that refuses to die.

But then came the Philips Tornado; and it blew me away. First of all, when you hit the switch, it springs into life easily in time for you to see your next step. It is truly as bright as a 100w bulb. The light it throws is white, soft and warm like a cosy bed (and let's not get too misty eyed about the yellow tinge of tungsten). It's compact, so you don't have to see it self-righteously peeping out above the lamp shade. And when I bought it it was the price of a pint of out-of-London beer (though the price has fluctuated to London cocktail price since).

What's not to like?

So the fact that the bulb I have acquired on the eve of my daughter going to school, will be the same one that lights her way to University, feels just fine. And perhaps if I buy a few dozen more, the money I have saved in the interim will help pay her fees. For a morning.

At last! a bulb that gives enough light to read by without the greenish tinge of the "daylight" bulbs. I hadn't realised quite how depressing it was to gloom around in the penumbra created by lesser products waiting for the dismal light to come on. I have changed all the key light sources in my house and the difference it makes to mood is remarkable. The "warm white" glows without being unkind. Thank you Philips, you deserve a medal from the NHS!

What a pleasant suprise,this lamp came on fairly brightly then in a short space of time was as good as the banned old vacuum bulb. It lit up a large room all by itself. So many modern lighting products are claimed to be better than they actually are but this one, with its soft white light (there are many "white colours" for bulbs I've found) did the job with only 20 odd watts of power consumption.

In the past I have replaced a few light fittings that needed various types of modern halogen bulbs, all needing multiple bulbs to produce enough light. Thus not only defeating the energy savings of a ban on vacuum bulbs that our Masters decreed but putting my bleedin' bills up. Now it's time to convert back to the bayonet sockets and see clearly again.

This bulb does not do what it says on the tin - or box!
It states it gives 130 watts
It does not more like 80 - 90
When you put a standard 100 watt light bulb next to it - the standard one wins every time
Why can't someone produce a good bright light giving bulb but low energy

I UPDATING THIS as have since found a better one - from light bulbs direct

Pro lite bulb daylite 30 watt energy saver its rated at 130 watts truth is an amazing 1900 lumens
10,000 hour life etc
Far better than philips tornado
