4.0 out of 5 stars but not the best.
I bought some of these as the price was pretty good but, on fitting, they are yellower than the whiter iBoutique 30w bulbs which I have bought before. They are physically smaller/narrower but the same length so have no physical advantage.
Consequently, 35w or not, they are dimmer than the bright white iBoutique daylight 30w bulbs and so, for me, disappointing since...

2.0 out of 5 stars Things to be aware of.
I wanted to use these for a E27 lamp fitting so bought some E27 to B22 adaptors to use in conjunction with these bulbs. I tried putting both in the adaptors to find that it was impossible. So being practical I tried a number of bayonet bulbs in the adaptor and they all fitted without any issue. So the conclusion is that these bulbs are not fully B22 compliant. So if you...

4.0 out of 5 stars but not the best., 18 Jan 2014

This review is from: Cool White 35w Energy Saving Spiral Light Bulb, 175w Equivalent Very Bright, Bayonet Cap B22, New Advanced T3 Technology Instant Light
I bought some of these as the price was pretty good but, on fitting, they are yellower than the whiter iBoutique 30w bulbs which I have bought before. They are physically smaller/narrower but the same length so have no physical advantage.
Consequently, 35w or not, they are dimmer than the bright white iBoutique daylight 30w bulbs and so, for me, disappointing since the whole point of these daylight bulbs is to banish the yellow. The iBoutique ones also come on instantly where these seem to brighten more slowly. I thought it was me so replaced the bulb in the same room as the iBoutique one and it was plainly inferior.

5.0 out of 5 stars bright bulbs and I am happy with them, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cool White 35w Energy Saving Spiral Light Bulb, 175w Equivalent Very Bright, Bayonet Cap B22, New Advanced T3 Technology Instant Light
Just bought two and they are really bright bulbs. It improves the outlook of my sitting room immediately. I decide to buy another one or two.

I am not able to comment how long it lasts but hope for the best.

Attention please:
I also bought another 40w=200w bulb as described below:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Energy-Saving-Spiral-Bayonet-Daylight/dp/6040425687/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1390522113&sr=8-3&keywords=40w%3D200w+bulb+energy+saving

To be honest, this 40w bulb is useless - it is even worse than my old 20w bulb, so avoid it. I will return it as the description is totally misleading.

So if you have fittings that are picky then ignore these bulbs.

Make sure you get the right one if you want light for arts and crafts. I originally got the wrong one which was worse than useless. Now I have this bulb it works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daylight at night!, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cool White 35w Energy Saving Spiral Light Bulb, 175w Equivalent Very Bright, Bayonet Cap B22, New Advanced T3 Technology Instant Light
Love these lamps. Very bright. They do seem to take a few short seconds to get to full brightness, but still bright enough when switched on. I've bought 5 now. Sadly, I dropped and broke one :-(
The first one I got emits a fairly high level hum (not loud) for couple of minutes on switching on, but that's the only possible issue I've noticed with them. The others seem to be silent. Nice bright white light = happy customer. Only time will tell regarding their lifespan.

This review is from: Cool White 35w Energy Saving Spiral Light Bulb, 175w Equivalent Very Bright, Bayonet Cap B22, New Advanced T3 Technology Instant Light
I purchased this bulb due to its cool white day light brightness. The product has exceeded expectations as I am now able to proof read correspondences especially at night without the usual strain.

Not a bad light but it does take an amount of time to get to its peak and I don't think it is as good as a normal 175 watt bulb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for close work, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cool White 35w Energy Saving Spiral Light Bulb, 175w Equivalent Very Bright, Bayonet Cap B22, New Advanced T3 Technology Instant Light
I bought a single bulb as a test and am very pleased with it. It comes on immediately the switch is pressed and gives a very bright light which is ideal for my needs. I notice that when switched off it gives a very brief flash immediately after the power is cut, but whatever the cause, it does not seem to be harming the bulb and after 3 months of use with no problems I would be quite happy to buy further of the same as the need arises, especially as it uses a mere 37w.
