Get it if you want your place to be as bright as the hospital. Hold your receipt in case.
I have 3 of the warm ones over my kitchen table. Can't stand gloomy, dim lighting nor cold bluish light. These are nice bulbs.
for an 11w LED - 62w equivalent?
Shouldn't make it too bright. Go the 'Warm' variant, generally don't seem as bright as 'Cool"..
I haven't witnessed the warm one's yet but these have a bad CRI rating.
What is a CRI rating ?
@Andy99: I think maybe it's better if you google that. Philips have one of the poorest CRI. Perhaps that's why it's cheap, and I get the negs haha
Is use 1500 and I find them to be dull. These ones are candles
Hardly. I like bright rooms. Can't stand peering in a dingy house. Only time lights are turned down is TV watching.
Kitchen/Dining etc, I have 4 in a rectangular largeish space - 1050 lumen each, kitchen 3 downlights over the benches and a central light - 2x 1400 lumen and 2 1050. So nice to be able to see.
Same with the bathroom. Hate shaving in dingy light.
1055lm is not that much…i run a 1400 in the kitchen and its fine
It depends on room size and lighting needs. 1400 isn't enough for some kitchens and too much for others.
My floor lamp is like 800lm and it brightens the room almost as much as the 2*1600lm bulbs that i have on the celling
Anyone know if the warm whites are 3000K or 2700K?
They're all either 2700k for warm(or soft warm and whatnot) or 6500k for cool (or daylight.. soft white idk)
I've actually been looking for a 4000-5000k bulb with no luck, so I'm going with two cool and one warm
Unfortunately these cheap Phillips ones are 2700k for warm white (too yellow) and 6500k for cool white (gross crusty blue harsh). Neither appeal to me.
I pay a bit extra and get the purple box Phillips at Bunnings - 3000k for warm white. So much nicer. Still warm, but more of a white light than yellow, and definitely not blue/cold.
I want to live in a home not a morgue.
does the light need to be compatible with LED as such?
im currently using these https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/741388/phi... and not sure if LED would suitable
From the light Globe you are using(in the link), just get the BC one and you will be fine. I am using 11W for my desk lamp and in small room 3mX4m and it is okay.
Interesting because Woolworths Circa (Bella Vista) has/had the same ones on Clearance for $5.05 in their clearance section in Warm Bayonet version. I picked up two of these yesterday with four more on the shelf. I wonder why the clearance when coming up on special soon.
Literally bought these bulbs today at Woolworths (B22 and E27) seems that the sale has already started?
Sure those weren't the 8w? They're on special near me
Yeah grabbed the 1055lm ones, 2x for $6.50.
They also had the 1400lm ones, 2x for $7.50.
Glad I got the less powerful ones because these are even a bit too bright, maybe should've gone with the 806lm ones which were even cheaper for 2.
been kicking myself or not buying 1400lm 2x for 7.50 when I saw them as online special..
They are finally back, been waiting for those bulbs for the past 6 weeks, my ozbargain spirit wouldn’t let me buy them at full price.
LED globes are free for Victorian households under the Veu scheme
I believe they replace 400-1000lm globe only, and you need an old globes too. and not sure if the free globe offer is once at life time or not. :)
They replace any cfl or halogen, only rules are that you can’t of had them replaced that your adress previously & minimum of 8 and they must be in a socket (can’t just hand the approved installer a box and except to get led in return)
The 1400 lumen range scanned for me at $6.50 at my local Woolies (advertised on shelf at $7.50).
price match from amazon would be nice……….
