  • Good light, but ...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Nice light levels for a bedroom or similar sized room

    Nice color selection

    The Fade option on the remote provides a disco style look

    Has a rubber seal, making it seem waterproof (I haven't tested that myself)

    Cons:

    Like others have said before, it's a 3 wire cable (includes a ground wire) for a non-grounded device. as a result the wires themselves are much thinner, making it difficult to properly attach a new plug without changing the whole cable.

    Short power cable

    Isn't very visible with other lighting sources in use as well

    The remote sensor attaches to a circuit board in a very flimsy way, and in changing the cable one of the wires came off

    2 of the screws holding the back part (with all the electronics) closed, were crooked, making it difficult to open up to change the cable

    OtherThoughts:

    Before buying this, unless you're in Australia, make sure you have the following:

    1) 2 wire cable (the hole that the cable goes through is too small for a good 3 wire)

    2) Soldering iron and solder

    3) Heat shrink wrapping (you could use electrical tape, but heat shrink is better)

    Work carefully, there's not much room to make a mistake with a hot soldering iron.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if you can do the 20 minutes of tinkering it'll take. You won't be sorry. Unless, of course, you want to light too big an area.
