½ Price Philips LED 1055lm Cool Daylight 11W ES 2Pk $6.50 @ Woolworths
All Philips LEDs or just this one?
It appears on page 32 of the new catalogue starting this Wednesday. Only mentions this item (rather than 50% off all philips sale) so I presume it won't be all of them https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/catalogue#view=catalogue2...
If it is just this one (ie 11w/1055 lumen), it usually will include both screw type and bayonet type and also warm white and cool white.
Pretty cool deal… Thanks OP
Not sure if you guys are gonna warm up to my puns.
They're as clear as daylight.
Bit of a frosted reception
I switched off as soon as I read it
With most people and puns, the lights are on, but nobody's home.
Half price for all 2 packs 6w, 9w, 11w, and 14w.
It's a great deal then.
Are they dimmable?
Don't think so.
Hope its the LED downlights as well.
I don’t know anyone who has ever bought daylight bulbs other than by mistake
Yeah unless you want your house to look like a hospital or dentist surgery.
they're great for task lighting
Really? I actually prefer daylight anyday. I dont like warm.
They are great in the kitchen.
I still can't work out bulb I want
Can anyone with half a brain tell me what's the dullest bulb I can get
I used to always love the 25w yellow tinge for my lamps
But I seem to either get the wrong ones or get lucky
I actually find it quite stressful
Get 6W warm white, that's Philip's dullest for regular globe
Might be more expensive, but I'm thinking you may need to go for one of those fancy LED bulbs at Bunnings, they are much dimmer than the regular lights and will be more 'warmer' - ie closer to the old school 25w incandescent globes.
However these are only useful for lamps for I'd say decoration - what did you use your old 25w lamps for? I'd think you'd want much brighter as a room light, and a bit brighter if it was a reading lamp, so really you'd only want it this dim for ambiance or decorative effect kinda??
Yeah ambience would be the reason I guess.
I just like having a bit of light
I'm quite sensitive to bright lights, so TV, phone or tablet in a dark room just blinds me, so the offset of the lamp helps.
I'll check these out thanks
Buy a Mirabella Genio smart bulb that allows the warmth of the light to be altered along with the brightness. I have these in my house and I can find the exact right spot between white and orange/yellow for my own preference per room.
Even if you don't use the smart features, you can turn them on/off at the wall like a regular bulb.
But you can get 10 for $10 at bunnings. Quality might not be as good. Not sure.
Of course quality wouldn't be anywhere near as good. Probably that awful "Click" brand. Woeful quality, awful colour temp etc.
Phillips and Osram are probably the two best brands you can buy, compared to Bunnings cheap bulk buy rubbish.
It's also nice to get 14w. Not sure if those bunnings ones even come in that brightness.
True. Those Click ones from memory are 800 lumens, too dim for most rooms I find.
This deal is lit
I can't find this in the Victorian catalogue.
How does it compare with ikea's
Been using ikea's ledare for many years now
You don't need to assemble these
No, ikea also have screw in LED bulb like this
Screw you man!
600 lumens is very dim - need 1000 lumens + for a main room light.
@placard: Yes I agree, but that's the highest lumen for ikea bulb that can fit on my oyster light.
Hence I want to try this Philips
Very nice. I got given some of those video lights with the 4 x screw type fittings. Hopefully I can get a few of the 14W ones.
If these weren't cool white, I'd be all over this deal. Cool white is too harsh and much prefer warm white.
Yeah I don’t get people who have these 6000k lights throughout their house. My sister likes daylight everywhere in her house and she sees it as a “old fashion” vs “modern” lense.
Feels like walking into a public toilet to me.
I reckon about 4000k is the goldilocks temperature and I’m not sure why Phillips don’t sell these bulbs at that temperature.
White LEDs have only been possible to make for a few years now, before that they were basically blue. I personally find that cool white still has a very slight blueish hue
I agree - 4000k I find perfect. I wish it wasn't the choice between 2700k and 6500k.
Why not something mid-range??
wtf is soft white..is this philips version of warm white ?
