Osram LED Retrofit CLASSIC A / LED lamp : great bulb but a hefty price tag.

LED Bulbs

Perfect for a porch or such like, but not a reading light. Leds are great for low cost running and with electricity getting more expensive all the time, it makes good sense to go as efficient as possible. Led’s offer very low running power with all the power going into illumination, not heat. But be prepared that this is very low power the equivalent of a 15w bulb. I found it perfect for my porch light, where you just want a gentle not-in-your-face type of illumination. For reading its probably too weak and i wouldnt even try especially if you are getting on in years, when it is important to have a good flood of illumination over the reading matter. This boasts a very long life, like 15 years, and some crazy amount of on off switching. No reason to doubt, though i have had other long life bulbs which frankly did not repay the expense. Led’s are however, very long life, so if you get this one over the first 24 hours or so, it will probably go on for a very long time.

A pretty, old style bulb, low output but rather nice. 2w led is about 15w old stuff ~ very dim but attractiveno good for readinges fitting so useless for old uk fittingsif used with a shade it gets very dima pretty, old style bulb, low output but rather nice.

Better bulb styling for a traditional style. . I am not a fan of led bulbs, they may be low energy but they can give a weird light and look really odd in traditional light fittings. This retro design seeks to address that. The bulb looks like a regular light bulb with a screw in attachment. But fits in with a more traditional decor. Here are the specifications for the Osram LED Retrofit CLASSIC A / LED lamp:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Energy consumption 12 kWh/1000h at 1420 lm
  • Long lifespan – up to 10000 hours and up to 100000 switching cycles
  • Warm white light for comfort and relaxation, ideal for decorative use throughout the home and in the living room
  • Immediately at full power, no warm-up time
  • Easy replacement of standard light bulbs, genuine replacement for a conventional 95 W light bulb (outdoor use only in suitable lamps)

Looks good as a replacement for my recesed ceiling spotlights. I wasn’t sure from the other reveiws if this was a 12 watt or as above a 1. 2,i was slightly dissapointed when it arrived as it was indeed a 1. 2 wattage which was far to low for lighting over my computer desk ,that said this would be a very good bulb for mood lighting and when fitted into my recessed spot light fitting in the ceiling did a good job of looking just like the old incandescent bulb that i now cant buy, these look much better in situ than the flat led bulbs i have at present. The light itself is a very warm yellow tone also.

Performs well but isn’t dimmable as stated. This osram clear warm white 12w led bulb delivers both brightness and quality of light. The bulb looks physically well made and the e27 screw is a good, taut fit into my table light socket. The light output from this warm white version is really nice and bright but despite being led it actually delivers quite a mellow light making it ideal for period style lamps – i think this is due to its long yellow led ‘filaments’. I like the fact that despite its low energy consumption you get full brightness the moment you switch the bulb on, plus the fact that although the capital cost is higher it is saving you money over a the longer term and should last around 10 years. What lets this lamp down though is an inconsistency between the specification on this page which states it is dimmable whereas the pack indicates by way of a symbol that it is not. As to whether a lamp is dimmable or not is often a critical factor when people are choosing led lamps and the information should be consistent and correct and for that reason i’ve docked a star.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A decent long lasting vintage style energy saving bulb. Strong warm white light presents immediately on switching the bulb on.
  • Long term, energy effienent – for that nostalgia
  • Nice Traditional Bulb – Not Dimmable

Lovely retro styling and warm glow.

Long term, energy effienent – for that nostalgia. When the fancy energy efficient bulbs started making their way into the market, with their frosted glass and plastic, i found myself missing the old, burning hot, clear variety i used to fill my house with, the ones where the innards would disintegrate when the bulb was done. It’s safe to say that this osram won’t do any of that, but you get that charming nostalgia (in a bulb, who knew) without the inherent problems that an energy guzzling bulb will bring. The yellow led strips look good when the bulb is off, and once lit you get that nostalgia, with the strips lighting to a point where you have to look away. The light is fantastic – exactly how i remember the old ones being, but with none of the wasted energy in the heat. To the contrary, after around six hours of use the bulb was barely warm. It’s very well made and i expect it to last for a long, long time. I actually have an osram of a smaller screw variety of this design in one of my lamps, which has lasted and kept its quality for months. I expect this to do the same.

Great ledvance / osram quality. Despite the (currently blocked) sale of the osram non-automotive led business to the chinese, these remain the best consumer led lamps on the market, in my opinion. Unlike others, the ‘equivalent’ incandescent wattage quoted seems accurate, and the colour temperature as described. This style is very popular in old lanterns, and whilst i believe the elements aren’t as robust as cob types, this seems as well made as any other osram led product. I hope that the new owner keeps up standards, even if they refuse to make many bc versions.

Nice traditional bulb – not dimmable. This review is for the 15 watt replacement, retro design screw-in classic bulb shape. Osram also produce a 75 watt and a 100 watt replacement bulb (e27 fitting. )the bulb glass is clear through which can be seen two thin led strips which replace the tungston filaments of a conventional bulb. It requires no warm up time and provides a warm white light. 2 w = 15 watt, it is not particularly bright and is inadequate as a reading light. It is perfect for a decorative or porch light. It’s stated life is 15 years with very low power consumption. The product description states that it is dimmable but the supplied packaging shows that it is not.

This is exactly what i expected – a vintage style clear glass light bulb with led filaments inside. It’s bright, it’s authentic looking, even down to the stamp on the glass. And it’s the same size as an old style bulb, possibly because by the looks of it, they’re reusing the old moulds and stuffbrilliant.

Perfect for subdued lighting. There is no excuse not to be using led bulbs for most domestic lighting needs. They reach full brightness instantly and their long lifespan makes them more economical than the alternative. For a low wattage bulb it seems a little expensive. I don’t see that there is much added aesthetic value in having a retro desingn.

Is there any reason at all not to switch to led lights?. I like these new led bulbs with what looks like an old fashioned filament inside. The great thing about leds is that they are intrincsically more attractive than compact fluorescents, come on at full strength instantly and are a substantial energy saving (about 90% less than tungsten bulbs, 60% less than compact flourescents). The prices are now so reasonable, changing my house to leds was a no brainer.

A decent long lasting vintage style energy saving bulb. Strong warm white light presents immediately on switching the bulb on. . Vintage light bulbs are all the rage now and most of them are based on the beautifully designed edison incandescent bulb and this light bulb (e27) from osram is a fairly decent one.  the bulb itself is designed in the standard vintage incandescent style with an antique style filament inside and it has a large screw bayonet fitting.   it measures 13cm in height x 6. Although these light bulbs can be used with a shade, i feel that these vintage style bulbs are too beautiful to hide and should be in full view meaning they are perfectly suited to an over shallow light shade (where the bulb can be admired from underneath).  we live in a 200 year old house and we are using one of these bulb as the ceiling light in our study where it looks perfect, as if it is meant to be there. This light bulb switches on to an immediate full powered light with no annoying waiting for the bulb to reach its full power. This bulb from osram is extremely well made and the metal screw bayonet is smoothly finished.

Well it’s a light bulb and fits with the ‘stripped back’ decoration we’ve just completed in the dining room. This replaced the supplied ikea bulb in the standard lamp. Larger physically but gives a warm subtle light. Worth having in the cupboard as a spare and cheaper than ikea.

That vintage tungsten filament look. This is clearly for the person that wants that vintage tungsten filament look, but with the energy savings and reliability that led bring, and i must say, in those departments, it really does do the job. When it’s on, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between a tungsten bulb. I reviewed the 15w replacement, and it did look reasonably close in light output, and very close in temperature and spread to a regular bulb.

Trad appearance, modern function. . Tiny elec consumption, looks very much like an old incandescent bulb so fits well in a period fitting which has an exposed bulb. I like these and will replace all my ugly cf units as they expire, or even sooner if anyone wants them on freecycle. Led is the future for home lighting.

A really top quality light bulb. This is my third osram bulb and they last for ever. 15000 hours lighting time is a very long time. This bulb gives off a lovely warm soft light and is not at all yellows as some cheaper versions are. I love the yellow filaments and also the fat that last evening when i turned my lamp off the bulb was barely warm after being on for hours. One thing to bear in mind is it is not dimmable, as,it,does,say so in the product description. 15 watts is powerful in a light bulb and for a little bulb this does pack a punch. Expensive but well worth it. No hesitation in recommending.

Well made solid performing bulb. I really like these retro effect bulbs that are inspired by the old edison tube bulbs and it is about time the bigger well known brands started making them more available and innovating a bit. This is well made and performs well as one would expect from osram. It’s certainly an eye catcher and gives a clear warm light. I’m not overly thrilled with the large white plastic band though and others i have had don’t have this so either they are perhaps unsafe or something or osram has cheated out a little. At 100 lumens this is a true 100watt replacement and pumps out a decent amount of light. I recommend this bulb and i will update my review accordingly should it fail prematurely or something.

Standard size screw in led lightbulb. The light is instant and it has a very long life and extremely low power consumption. I was sent the 15w to try and i’d say that’s perfect for a bedside lamp with a pleasant warm white glow. Led are recommended by our electrician as they save so much on power consumption compared to other types and we are gradually replacing all of ours. They’re not cheap initially but they should save you a lot of money over the life of each bulb.

Love this so much and we paired it with an osram vintage holder and have it behind our sofa, everybody who comes in the lounge mentions how cool it looks and although led has an amazing vintage/retro look to it, the glow is warm and definitely a relaxing light. Really high quality and love it.
