I bought these because I'm old-fashioned and don't like sitting in the dark, or at least waiting ten minutes for our new energy-saving lights to come on. (I thought progress took us forward, not back. Modern bulbs should come with the motto, 'Back to Dickensian times and proud of it!')
Anyway, that gripe out of the way, these were well priced and arrived quickly. I tested them out and they all worked. But when I put them into the fittings for any length of time, the first three died within about three days. The fourth is still with me several months on, and I've still got the others ready and waiting, so hopefully I was just unlucky. But I won't know for certain until I need to use them for any length of time. Hopefully, by then, scientists will have invented a bulb that's bright, cheap and comes on straightaway.
Oh, no, wait a minute, they already had...
