1.0 out of 5 stars Back to the drawing board for quality, 11 Nov. 2009
I love the idea of this product both from an eco viewpoint and for the ability to turn lights or other appliances on or off remotely. Straight out of the packet they are easy to set up and do the job well. But, and it is a big but, the units seem to fail just outside of their warranty period. They start to become more difficult to turn on or off then they will not stay on. This is a very common problem as can be seen on the Bye bye Standby forum.
The result is that due to the initial purchase price they do not save money. Nor do they save resources as the energy used in their manufacture cannot justify their short lifespan before disposal. I would urge the designers to use better quality components and provide a product with longevity. If achieved the 1 star would become 5.
