Have you seen the Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb? I noticed it one day while I was at my local Home Depot. Intrigued by its slim flat design, I decided to purchase one to see how well it would work in our home. I love LED light bulbs since they consume much less energy than the typical bulb. It may have a little different but it does seem to work.
Product Review: Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb
Take a good look at the packaging and you learn that this one little 8 w bulb replaces the typical 40 w bulb.
Like your typical light bulb, the Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb was easy to install with just a simple turn of the wrist. It looks a little odd at first given that most of us aren’t used to seeing flat light bulbs!
Here’s what it looks like from the side. Pretty neat, right?
It’s also supposed to last for 22.8 years?!
Well, that’s quite the claim and I certainly can’t test that out before posting this review. I can’t wait that long! At the time of this review, I’ve had the Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb plugged in for about 3 weeks and so far, so good. Like most other LED light bulbs, it’s pretty bright. I have it in our bathroom and one light bulb is more than sufficient. In fact, it’s so bright I often won’t turn it on in the morning when I’m still half asleep and groggy!
The light is evenly dispersed so I’m not worried by how it looks. In fact, I would imagine its sleek and slim design would make it much easier to install in a variety of light fixtures where typical light bulbs may not fit.
Now, I have to apologize. I tried to take a decent photo of it but it just didn’t work out the way I did. What you see here makes it look like the Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb casts a dull yellow glow where in fact, it’s very crisp and bright. Here’s a photo of my jade plant taken under its light. Notice how clear and bright the image is. Yep, that’s how bright it actually looks.
The shape is odd but I like the Philips Slimstyle LED light bulb. I like the slim design and hey, if it actually does last for 23 years, it’ll be the best $10 I ever spent! To LED or not LED, that’s up to you. I just find it neat that Philips came up with this slimmer style.
