Guarantees should match predicted life expectancy ...
on 1 February 2014
I like the spiral compact design. The bulb is fast-starting and achieves full brightness quickly.
I've only awarded three stars because over the years I've had to replace several of this manufacturers bulbs just after a year's use ... nowhere near the advertised 8, 10 even 15 year life expectancy.
I'm sure some bulbs will last this long, but not in my experience.
I think it's about time that the guarantee matches the predicted life expectancy (or vice-versa).
Anyway; fingers crossed. I'll update the review at some point!
