Nice one – E27 3W SMD LED 16-Color Light Bulb with IR Remote Control (85~265V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Good bulb to use as a night lamp. Colours are rich and pure. The bulb doesn't get hot, just warm. 2 fading modes (cycle through colours smoothly, fast and slow) and 2 flash modes (incoherently switch between different colors, fast and slow). Three levels of brightness. The RC battery is included.
Cons:
Direct visibility with the bulb is highly recommended to operate the lamp via remote control. Can't use the bulb in a lamps with a thick lamp-shade. Only 3 levels of brightness, not much differ. Too dim to use in a regular lamp (but not supposed to, actually).
Other:
The remote control is IR-based, so you better be in direct visibility with the bulb to operate it via remote control. It ALSO works when the signal from RC is reflected from the wall, but the working distance decrease dramatically (6+ meters in direct vs 1.5-2 meters max via wall reflection). The IR sensor is placed at the very top of the bulb so you probably want to install it so that it sticks out of the lamp-shade just a bit, to make the remote control possible and/or effective. It's impossible to read a book with it even at highest level of brightness. Can only be used as a night lamp / mood lamp.
Bottomline:
Works as expected. Should be installed accurately to be operable.
