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)
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
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.
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.
