Natural Light Philips 72 Watt

Natural Light Philips 72 Watt

This is the first time I've bought a Philips bulb made in India. Unfortunately, one of the two bulbs in the pack was dead (I tried it in two different lamps.). The one in the picture that does work is intensely bright and white, a lot like my Silverstar Ultra headlamps. They have the same Quartz capsules as the Polish made bulbs. These bulbs were cheap, under $4.00 at Ingles. Nice light quality, but I think I'll stick with Sylvania's more reliable products.

Were you able to exchange from the dead bulb at the store?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I could have, but they were inexpensive and I have other bulbs that I can use in the same applications. I threw away the bad bulb and the package.

The other redeeming factor besides the good light quality is that these don't buzz with dimmers. If I buy more, I'll test them in the store before I leave. I'm glad to find a bulb that doesn't produce a noticeable buzzing when less than 100% brightness.

The Philips Natural Light bulbs never caught on in popularity as much as the GE Enrich/Reveals because they aren't made of real neodymium glass. The Philips - and the similar Sylvania Daylight - bulbs are simply blue tinted, so you don't get that cool color shift that makes reds really "pop" under Reveals. Philips sources bulbs from all over, including Poland (which appear to be really well made), Indonesia, and China.

Philips Polish made bulbs are really well made with smooth glass, uniform soft white thickness, and interior capsules that aren't crooked. I hope these Natural Lights start coming from Poland with improved quality.

I was captured by the very interesting peach color that Philips uses in its modified spectrum halogens from Poland. The reason for the slight tint is complicated - it has to do with being able to skirt EPACT brightness requirements. It also makes the light color from the halogen capsule warmer. The coating is heavy and evenly applied (unlike most GE "soft whites" and Reveals which are now all over the map. With most GEs, the filament is clearly visible through the thin silica coating, even on lamps they designate as "Super Soft White". The aluminum bases on the Polish Philips bulbs are first rate, though I wish Philips would use the "American" A19 shape instead of the 220v "European" A19 envelope with the fatter neck. The DuraMax incandescent bulbs are coated well but use the American A19 envelopes.

I've bought a box of four 43 watt Polish-made Philips soft whites. I agree with you, they are really high quality. Uniform and thick soft white coating, smooth and flawless glass in all four bulbs in the package, and of course the nice looking and solidly affixed bases. All four of the bulbs had straight interior capsules. I'm finding that GE's halogens don't have the consistent quality that I've recently discovered in Philips' Polish-made bulbs. I prefer warmer light from the peach colored soft whites, which I'm happy to see is becoming commonplace. I'll definitely be buying more of these in other wattages.
