2.0 out of 5 stars Bad relays in these. Fixed mine but not without hassle, 9 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read a lot of the reviews here I thought I'd post mine. Installed the light which is a good looking unit but a little fiddly to attach to the wall plate. Nearly lost my temper but eventually got it on the wall. Turned it on and set the sensor up and all worked great ( although the most range Ive managed from this is only about 3m), Next day I noticed the light was on during the day. After that the light stayed on continuously. None of the adjusters for light level, range or timer did anything. Light on.. constantly. Tried tapping the wall unit as the relay inside was clearly not functioning but no joy. It seems these units have very bad relays which stick. Sometimes straight away, sometimes after 24 hrs like mine or maybe a little later but they aren't very good. I managed to fix mine by drilling a little hole in the black relay box and then putting a (very) small squirt of WD40 into the hole and then sealing it again with insulating tape. The light now responds correctly again as the relay is lubricated. This is far from ideal and not a recommended fix. The light has been working for the last three weeks now but it remains to be seen how long my bodge fix will last. Shame as the fitting itself is quite good looking and the up/down wall splash light is very effective. I would think twice about getting one of these unless you are willing to fiddle about with it when, and if it fails.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright, modern and flicker free. Easy to install., 14 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I reckon these are about 150% brighter than their fluorescent equivalent. They give a bright, uniform light and install very easily using the two clips supplied. No need to open the fitting at all as the wires come out with a plastic screw connector. You simply connect these wires to a junction box. If for any reason you need to take the fitting down you just undo the screw connector and pull the fitting from its clips.
Startup is almost instant with no flicker, hums or buzzing. These really are very nice and make fluorescents look old fashioned. My only gripe is the wires that come out for connecting to a junction box are quite short.
My dad's an electrician. He saw them and was impressed, and nothing impresses him usually!
If they were cheaper I'd buy another two right now. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will last forever. The only one you'll ever need, 27 April 2017

Works a treat and will last forever. Much better than the plastic one it replaces which cracked and cut my tongue. The edge on this isn't sharp and it feels great to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars As bright as a 40 watt equivalent and same colour. Great!, 27 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying LED's is somewhat of a lottery. The claimed figures for lifetime, colour and lumens are best taken with a pinch of salt so I really wasn't expecting too much from these bulbs, especially at this price.
Happy to say that I'm blown away with how good they are. I have two each in a pair if picture lights. The brightness is the same as the 40w halogen candle bulbs they replace. Colour is bang-on too. They aren't too warm and yellow, or too blue and cold. They are the same as halogens. There's no visible flicker or delays in startup.
I bought six, put four in the picture lights and they all worked straight away. No duds. They have been in now for 3 days so I can't yet comment on the lifetime but I have no hesitation in recommending these from what I already know.
The company also contacted after sale to make sure I was happy and no problems. Give 'em a go..

3.0 out of 5 stars Paint great but my can was cracked and leaked everywhere, 29 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant paint. Goes on easy and made the inside of my garage look bright and airy. Sadly the can had a crack/hole in it which leaked into the box in came in and I spent ages trying to clean up and gaffer tape the hole, only after it was all over my kitchen worksurface though. It's water based so easy to clean off. I think the can may have got cracked by the delivery company so I guess that's the risk you take when buying paint online.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the gummy type and the supplied stickers are weak and fiddly., 4 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The paper is great quality and with some nice designs but these strips are not the lick and stick type. Instead there are lots of double sided rectangles supplied which are incredibly fiddly to peel off and apply. Unfortunately they aren't strong enough either, and the chains will promptly fall apart unless you use a few on each strip, or even resort to sticky tape. If you have unlimited time and patience then all good. If these are for kids as mine were, you will have to help and it will take forever. Shame as they look great when up but it WILL take ages :).

5.0 out of 5 stars Stubby connector and great build. Very happy, 31 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice and stubby connector which doesn't hang out if the socket and get in the way. Little blue light to show its working and nice, kink free super bendy cable. A good buy. Cable isn't that long but fine for my needs.

Good quality and looks great in a frame. Not as big as I was expecting though. It's not really a poster, more a glossy picture.
