Thank you very much for your review! I have been using Maxim bulbs for quite some time (bought from a wholesaler,not on Amazon!) and you will be pleased to know that,so far,I have had no problems with them! If anyone receives unsatisfactory Maxim bulbs from a seller here,it is either a faulty batch or has been damaged in transit! These last as long as any respectable brand & possibly even a bit longer,judging by the ones I've been using in my kitchen & elsewhere! Also,you'll be pleased to know,they give out a lovely bright,warm light! Maxim is in fact, a UK company based in Haywards Heath.and it has a long history,producing it's first 'lamp' as long ago as 1879!
Finally,just in case anyone reading this is wondering;I should point out that I have no connection with Maxim or any seller on this site,whatsoever!
