Now that you can't buy proper 100w light bulbs how do you get enough light to see what you are doing? Either invest in new expensive light fittings or buy these bulbs. They start quite quickly, are comparable in size and genuinely are about as bright as the old 100w bulb. I just hope they save lots of electricity, because even at this excellent price they are ten times as expensive to buy.

First class product with good illumination. The impression that I have is that these bulbs do not last as long as when they were first introduced..

Well known qualiy product that gives high satisfaction. Howeevr, an order for 4 diffenet wyattage bulb, all by Philips, was broken up by Amazon into 4 separate orders. The first deilvery was very prompt (these bulbs) and the last was about 16 days later. not what one expects for a universally avaialble product

these low energy lights are so much better than when they were first brought out, you get a much brighter light and its more instant now than the earlier ones, also they are now more affordable and save you money as well

This is a really good development in lighting. Compact and with an excellent light output it provides good light for reading or hobbies. Fits a normal bayonet type socket. Highly recommended!

I could've gone to a store and bought these kind of bulbs but they are EXPENSIVE (and not to mention not Energy-saver as well). That's why when I saw this on Amazon, I didn't hesitate to buy it. When I received it and replaced my current bulb, I was amazed at how bright it is at such low watts! It was so bright that you would think it consumes 100W.

I am really happy with this product. Cheap purchase, energy efficient, but premium results!

Bought this online as I needed a compact bulb to replace an 11w GE globe type in a bulkhead fitting which took forever to warm up and provided insufficient light in my carport/utility room. Nothing available from the local DIY stores with ~100W equivalent would fit (size was about the same as a normal tungsten 100W). Found this great supplier and took a chance - so pleased with the delivery speed and WOW - the overall length was a little less than the bulb I was replacing; the startup is instantaneous to about 80% and after around 30 seconds the output is hard to tell from a tungsten 100W bulb.
Couldn't recommend more highly!

Edited - Very disappointed that the bulb failed after 12 months, whereas much cheaper (but not as effective) bulbs have lasted 3 years with exactly the same usage. Have just ordered another as I have been so impressed with the startup time and light output, but if it only lasts as long this will be the last!

They take a while to warm up to full brightness, as all energy saving bulbs seem to. These are much brighter than the others I've used. The shape is similar to that of the old type of bulb and so fits lampshades etc far far better. I've had them up about a year now and not a single one has failed anywhere, again I cannot say the same about the other energy saving bulbs that I've used, which may save energy but have ended up costing me far more.
Some Phillips products are a bit of a let down, my last pair of hair clippers being one, but these are Phillips at their best.

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!
