    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Build quality is pretty good.
    - The receiver box is smaller than I expected
    - 4 channels, you can turn on/off 4 devices.
    - Pretty good price.
    - All works fine.
    - Good RC working range.
    - RC has small LED for button press indication.

    Cons:

    I think the main phase 220V input wire (red) to tiny for 4x1000 wattage.
    "- Four channels output (power 1000W x 4)" = 4kW
    The red wire for phase input is about 0.5-0.75mm2.

    In table at the link:
    Conductor Size
    Current
    Maximum power (Watts)
    1.0 mm2
    10 amps
    Up to 2400 Watts
    So how it is possible to handle 4kW with so tiny wire?
    I think its not safe to handle so much watts.
    Question 2
    "- Output power for each channel: incandescent lamp (max 1000W); energy saving lamp(max 200W / 6pcs at most); fluorescent lamp (max 280W / 5pcs at most)"
    What is the difference between energy saving lamps loaded with 200W and incandescent lamps with same 200W.
    I think is doesn't matter what you are using, the fact is that you're using same 200 Watts.

    OtherThoughts:

    It's great device, works as expected, nice looking. It's worth price for this device. However I would suggest to use not very powerfull things, this is good for light lamps and some other stuff, but I really don't think that this can handle 4x1000 watts, the RED wire (phase) to tiny for that and if you load to much watts, it will be unsafe.

    Bottomline:

    If you wanna control some stuff at your home, buy this device, this is realy helps you.
