Great idea, shame about the build quality
on 12 February 2010
What a great shame!
The effects that this LivingColour mood lamp can produce are great, no question about it. I can also see that with multiple lamps, you would be able to create a really great light wall experience, which is what I wanted to do. I would like to have bought three or four down the line.
The product itself is a neat design, clean, small and light, lovely. The colour's are bright and vibrant and easily controlled via the remote.
So why am I returning mine after just one night out of the box? the answer is because of a low pitch, constant buzzing noise when the lamp unit is turned to anything over half brightness.Something that has been reported by other users who bought this product.
I'm afraid this has been my experience with Philips products of late. I own an 11 year old Philips TV which is bomb proof, great picture..etc, but everything I have bought from them in the past five years has been terrible, it's either fallen apart or just plain faulty.
This LivingColour mood lamp is a great idea but the quality control at Philips is simply not their anymore and it'll be along time before I buy Philips again.
If you can put up with the buzzing noise, or you get one that doesn't have this problem I'm envious, you'll enjoy what you can do with it.
