Disadvantages does not last
|Value for Money|
Light bulbs are a necessity in a home and I have calculated that throughout my home I need around 25 bulbs! They range from bayonet to halogens. I thought I would try a cheaper option. After all, who cares what brand it is so long as it is throwing out light!I paid 21p per bulb from Sainsbury's and it is part of the basic range. I was pleased that I was able to buy the light bulbs singularly as often they come in boxes of two.
The light bulb I bought has the standard bayonet fitting and screwed neatly into the light fixture. The light bulb was a 60watt bulb and is fairly bright. The light bulb felt fairly flimsy and when I looked at the filament, it looked like it would not last that long.The light fitting I used the bulb in is only on for a few hours a night and managed to last around 4 months. This is around 224 hours of usage. I was a little disappointed with the length of time the bulb lasted, however I had an idea that the bulb would not work out that economic after I had taken it out of the box and seen how poorly it was made. It was very thin glass and very thin, rattley filament.
The cost of running the light bulb totals around £7.00 per year, going on current electricity prices. A low energy bulb would be lower than this but would cost me more in the initial output.I would not recommend this light bulb, initially I thought I was getting a good deal but with the value of hindsight, as it did not last very long, I should probably invested in something a little more robust.
