Subject:VERY cheap low-energy lamps
Time:03:33 pm
In case anyone hadn't noticed; Robert Dyas stores currently offer Philips low-energy lamps at 69p or THREE for £1, 11 to 18w, ES or BC fittings. I think that they're slightly old stock - the most recent ones have been a little smaller - but the same energy efficiency as the current ones. At that price you can't really go far wrong anyway. Just got a largeish number for work.

No idea how long the offer is on, I can't seem to access their web site.

Later - the web site has the 69p offer but not 3 for a quid, presumably it's in-store only. Doesn't say how long the offer is on for.

Forgot to say that they're 8 year life lamps, not the 12 year.

Although my story is nothing to do with Robert Dyas (which I quite like to shop in) I bought some very cheap low energy bulbs and they gave off extremely "cold" light - far more blue than red. I need to change it - and perhaps relegate that bulb to a chandelier.

They werent Philips though - I might pop round to Robert Dyas tomorrow :-)

Philips are generally a nice warm light - I've only once had a low energy lamp with a blue tint and it was horrible, but it was some cheapo no-name type I found in a pound shop. Never again!
