4.0 out of 5 stars Cozy!, 29 Nov. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dimplex BFD20R Brayford Traditionally Styled Optiflame Effect Electric Stove, 2 Kilowatt (Kitchen & Home)
I have had this electric fire 5 weeks now bought on 18/10/12, The flame is very effective and looks almost real,
The heater kicks out some nice heat just on 1 bar, It does really heat up a room very quickly.

I have only given it a 4 ster rating because of the lamps inside, Dimplex have put 2 x E14 candles which run at 60W each, After the 5 weeks, Both lamps have now blown already, Instructions say that these lamps are long life??
I have now put in 2 x E14 4.5W LED candles, Not only will these lamps last 10 years, 9W compared to 120W is alot of difference.

So if you are considering buying this product, Then i would invest in a couple of LED candle lamps, Besides the rubbish lamps Dimplex supply, The Fireplace is an excellent buy, Cozy, Heat, Looks brill.

Where do I obtain this size of bulb as most of ones that I have looked at are much bigger than existing bulbs and would not fit.

Integral LED ILB35E14O4.0D03KACMA E14 Small Edison Screw 4 Watt LED 260 lm Frosted Candle Dimmable Bulb, Warm White

Something like this will fit, As long as they are E14 (Edison screw) And they also have to be the Candle shape, Normal bulbs will not fit,
LED lamps should last at least 10 years, So you could go for a better make, Osram, Philips and Megaman make good LED lamps.
Hope this has helped.

I am thinking of purchasing this Dimplex and I think that your idea of the bulbs is a good one, but as the LEDs give out very little heat as opposed to two 60 watts, does this affect the workings of the flicker effect, also some have posted that they have to be coloured (red?)
