Philips LED G9 Capsule Light Bulb : Energy efficient, but poor quality light.

They give off a nice warm lightcannot comment on their longevity as have only had them in a few hours.

Great bulbs. But other bulbs are of similar quality and cost less than half the price. I haven’t been impressed with led light bulbs i have purchased in the past, but i was drawn to them again by their low energy consumption. I am to be quite sensitive to lights flickering and strobing effect. This time i purchased some phillips leds (2. 5w £10 for 2 – £5 each) and some by leorx (3w £9 for 5 – £1. 80 each ) and wanted to compare them against each other and halogen bulbs. In terms of build quality, both are perfectly good, no problem getting them to slot into existing light fittings and the size was comparable to each other. But both are slightly larger than halogens. The bit that surprised me was that both produced natural light with no flicker that was noticeable, and no residual light was emitted when the lights were switched off (which had happened with previous bulbs i have bought). The lights were near enough identical in terms of brightness, and perfectly suitable replacements for standard 25w halogens.

Great replacement for ordinary bulbs and a more gentle light which is nice. Here are the specifications for the Philips LED G9 Capsule Light Bulb:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • High quality LED light with standard materials, suitable for home use
  • Create a cosy and warm environment similar to halogen or incandescent lamps
  • Very low energy consumption – saves up to 80% energy
  • Never change your light bulb – lasts up to 15000 hours
  • High colour rendering (CRI > 80) provides vivid colour and extra warm light effect

They work perfectly fine and hopefully will last until philips release a hue. I bought two of these packs to replace standard g9 bulbs. They work perfectly fine and hopefully will last until philips release a hue bulb of this style.

Nothing wrong with the lamp, but very large.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great bulbs.but other bulbs are of similar quality and cost less than half the price
  • Quality is good but light only emitted from the top so depends
  • Perfect replacement for halogen G9’s

Nice bright bulbs, we have a fitting that requires 5 in the kitchen and they light it up beautifully, just what we needed. We had the halogen ones in prior to this, but if these last as long as they say, they are far superior, have had them approximately one monthso don’t know yet. Hopefully the electric bill will be a bit lessdelivery was quick.

I tried a lot g9 led light bulbs, some. I tried a lot g9 led light bulbs, some give flickering lights and some are not powerful enough, i had to revert back to the energy consume old types for efficient light, however, after discovering these, it all changed.

Good on the wall lamp above tv projecting light down. I generally don’t buy philips, but this made me reconsider the brand, i like the direction the intensity of the light and the quality feel topmy tv is below a wall lamp facing down, i put this directional led illuminating the back of the tv because other led build previously in the same position were emitting disturbing light also perpendicularly to the wall.

Good quality g9 lamp – you get what you pay for. . I’ve had these g9 lamps for approx a month, they seem to be working fine with a good flicker free output. I was concerned the light would be quite focused due to its front lens design, however there is enough spill from the edges of this lamp to even work in a light fitting with part frosted glass. In the past i have bought both expensive g9 bulbs and the cheaper budget ones. My sample may not be large enough for a generalisation, however in my experience the branded and more expensive one have lasted longer and give a far better quality light output. The cheaper ones have just been false economy and any saving in energy has been out weighed by the short life and replacement cost. Time will tell with these lamps, however so far so good.

These led bulbs look great in my chandelier fitting. . I wanted to replace the standard g9 bulbs that came with my chandelier type fittings. I needed 16 bulbs in total so this wasn’t a cheap exercise but i reckoned for the savings in electricity and the low heat emission from this type of bulb it would be worth it. I agonised for weeks over which bulbs to purchase since there appear to be so many out there. In the end, i decided to go with a name i can trust so plumped for phillips. I was a little concerned about the size of these bulbs since i didn’t want them show through the glass fitting. Although larger than the standard g9’s the bulbs look great, the outer casing a bright unobtrusive white, are a sturdy build and emit quite a nice bright but not too white welcoming light. I am now really glad i chose these.

Good light effect but bigger. . They are a warmer light colour than normal leds. They don’t get very hot either. We’ve put 3 in a floor lamp and they look good. They are a bit longer and wider than a conventional bulb though.

Excellent product and well worth the extra outlay. Firstly i am massive fan of led bulbs and phillips bulbs in general. I have never had any issues and as a result i have a philips led bulb of different shapes and sizes in every room in my house. The bulbs are manufactured to an excellent standard and touch wood to date i have had no failures. Like most i’m interested to see if these bulbs will actually last 25 years. Led bulbs have dropped massively over the years and on average now cost between £5 and £7 for household bulbs of different sizes and wattages. I have have three of these bulbs in a bathroom light it’s like daylight in the middle of the night. Everyone that has seen them comment on how bright they are. Overall very pleased with the bulbs.

Ordered a large quantity to replace the cheap led bulbs in four light fittings, which just kept failing. The delivery took longer than normal for amazon, but when they arrive they were well packaged. The bulbs produce a bright directional light, which is very pleasing to my eye. And overall produce a brighter light. Expensive but hopefully they will last the test of time.

Philips Master LED GU10 4 Watt 3000K Dimmable Energy Saving Bulb : Absolute quality!

Brighter, whiter and amazing wattage savings. Direct replacements for my old gu10 halogens so fitting took seconds. They’re brighter and whiter than halogens and defintely give the room a different feel. I think they’re more directional creating a more spotlight feel. The power savings is the biggest draw – my …
