we got some that aren't too bad - they get brighter the longer they're on and get whiter as well. Rob told me that they're putting a new tax on energy saving lightbulbs this year!!

I've got a few in the house but I stick them in places where it doesn't matter that they're not too bright e.g. the hall, stairs landing.

We get ours off Ebay and bought them in bulk so they're cheaper.

We have some energy savers that are too bright! I think they are more expensive because most have a 10yr guarantee on them, if they blow you can just get new ones but its a pain saving the receipts incase!!! Neutral

they only take about 30 seconds to fully brighten, and they do get very bright, we have 2 in our lounge, one at the front end and one at the rear, and just one of them will light the entire room. If they save us money, I'm all for it, who cares if they take a bit longer to light up....just don't put them in your cellar or loft hehehe..

You can get different brightnesses of energy saving lightbulbs just as you can with normal ones. They also save you around £10 a year for every one that you use!

I very much doubt normal lightbulbs will still be around in 5 years time. They're having tax hikes to make them more expensive (and to make energy saving ones seem less so), and some countries are already talking about banning them!
