Light globes

I normally avoid recommending specific brands of products, but when it comes to compact fluorescent light globes, I am happy to suggest Philips Genie warm-white range. Their globes don't flicker, don't take ages to provide full light, and last for ... well a long time ... as I have never had one stop working. If all compact fluorescent globes behaved as well as these, there would be a lot less negativity associated with them.
