I use bright lights for reading. Previously I have used Philips 'Pro Halogen' 60 watts bulbs which are no longer available, or 'Pluslite' spiral 20 watts which are also no longer available. I searched Philips current light bulb product list and decided to try the new Tornado spiral 20 watts. This bulb produces dense bright but soft light which is easy on the eye when reading. Switch on is prompt and full. On this occasion search to replace earlier preferred choices provided an improved alternative. These 'Tornado' bulbs come in other sizes and fittings. I regard the Tornado bulbs as worthwhile upgrades and recommended them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright energy saving light bulb 26 Oct 2011
Unlike many other energy saving light bulbs, this one was advertised as lighting up immediately - and it does! I'm delighted with the brightness too and will be buying more like this, when I need them. The cost with Amazon was very good too, especially as so many of these bulbs are really expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice bedside reading light. 12 Jan 2012
This item was for a desktop-style lamp used at the bedside. It is a perfect size for the smaller lampshade and produces a very pleasant, warm, light that is also perfect for reading. Given the long-life and low price, it has to be a bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually 20w = 91w equivalent 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
On first impressions these start fast and seem well made, as you would expect from Philips.

However the spec listed is not correct, off the Philips Box it reads:

Power: 20w = 91w equivalent
Brightness: 1250 lm
Lifespan: 12 years 12,000 hours
Colour: Warm White 2700k
Rapid start: 60% brightness in 5-30 seconds

4.0 out of 5 stars light on the subject 20 April 2012

These were good value. They seem brighter than other similar 20w energy saving light bulbs I have bought before and claim to be equivalent to 97w in the old tungsten bulbs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and good 8 Nov 2013
By Kromm
Verified Purchase
This light might not beat the new LEDs on energy usage but the lumens it produces is very good.
Light quality is also pleasant, it seems to get to the full brightness fairly quickly, but I have not measured it.

1250 Lumens (per a different reviewer below) and 20 watts, that would be 62.5 lumens per watt. Still better than more expensive LEDs.

UPDATE: no problems but check in your local supermarkets - I found the same light for 3.5 in Sainsbury's, drat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bulb for the Money 20 July 2012
By Harry
Ordered the bulb on Monday and it arrived on Thursday with free delivery(wanted it to replace the light I had in my fish tank)however the fitting was too big, found a place for it in the kitchen when a bulb blew and it's a lot brighter than the bulb that was there before, well worth the money.
