I installed the bayonet version of this product in my bathroom a few days ago and I am really delighted with the quality of the light, something I had not expected from an LED product. I am in the middle of decorating this room so I need a good quality light to be able to see what I am doing, especially since the ceiling and walls are a deep wine colour. (Who wants a dazzling white bathroom? Boring!)
Previously I had an old 100w lightbulb in place and it was not particularly user friendly. Not only was the light nowhere near as strong as this (presumably less powerful) replacement, but it made working near it at ceiling level quite uncomfortable because of the heat it emitted. This is going to make my life a lot easier, so even though it is early days, I am very satisfied with it.
The packaging is plain but effective, featuring the minimum of information while managing to include all the important specs. The bulbs come in both bayonet and edison screw versions, but my fittings are all bayonet so naturally I chose them to test. However, I assume the output and efficiency would be the same for both versions as they appear to be identical in every other way.
LED bulbs are widely available these days, but the prices still show a huge variation and not all shops have a range of choices. I would go for this brand by preference, partly because the cost is really competitive, and partly because the design would appear to allow for maximum light dissemination. This is really important when visibility matters. Not only is there the immediate issue (the decorating!) but also the ongoing importance of hygiene. Bathrooms are places where germs can easily multiply given the right conditions, and as someone who works during the day, I often find myself doing cleaning chores in the evening when it is already dark. Having a strong, reliable light source means I can see into dark corners and check that they meet my standards of cleanliness.
I am so pleased with this product that I intend to replace the rest of my household bulbs with one of this range - the cool white in living areas and passageways, and the sister product (Warm White) in the bedrooms. It is great to find an everyday product, one which we all use, being produced in such a sensible format. No frills, no fancy added bits, just an honest product that delivers what it promises.
