Pros:This is a very good quality light bulb. The remote control works well, even from a long distance. I have the bulb inside an enclosed light shade and the remote control still works without line of sight. There are 4 different colour changing modes which all work well and a choice of 16 colours.
Cons:The light bulb is only 3W so the plain white mode is not particularly bright.
The dimmer is not very useful as it only has 3 settings.
Other Thoughts:Overall this is a really excellent product for the price and I was most impressed with the quality of the remote control.
Other Thoughts:The first thing that got my attention was the build quality. I expected the bulb to be of cheap, fragile plastic construction, but it's actually very solid and of good weight. The size is about as long as a PAR20 bulb and almost exactly as wide as an MR16.
<br/>The color it produces is extremely vibrant, very saturated. The transitions are clean and look professional. As one reviewer mentioned earlier, things are a little more on the dim side. The brightest colors (blue and white) are equivalent to a 20 watt bulb and the dimmest color (red) is about an 8 watt bulb. While this perfect for mood lighting, as a party-lighting solution, you will require many bulbs. I recommend searching out and buying the bulb by the same seller without the remote when getting multiples. It saves a few bucks and you can use the same remote for all the bulbs.
<br/>The remote has a range of about six feet and about a 60 degree spread. It's signal easily goes through recessed cans (as long as you point it at the bulb).
<br/>The bulbs do have a memory of the last setting they were on when turning them on, either through the remote or power switch, as long as they are "trained" with the setting by leaving it on for at least a few minutes. I do notice that, when on solid colors at max brightness, the bulb controller flickers every once in a while. It's not enough do bother me, but I do notice it from time to time.
<br/>I will definetely be incorporating these bulbs in future lighting ideas.
Other Thoughts:I go out of my way to find cool color-changing LED lights, whether they be simple night lights or bulbs. This one intrigued me from the start: a bulb with a remote control? Sold! I took a chance, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The colors are brilliant, and the effects available via the remote proved more than adequate. I installed the light above my front door in a recessed lighting fixture; it lights up the entire entranceway and some of the dining room at night. Don't worry about running it 24/7 like I do--it should burn for 50,000 hours. If it works as advertised, you won't need a replacement for 5.7 years. Big ups to this Light!
Other Thoughts:It's really nice to see high quality LED bulbs available at this price.
<br/>The colors produced are smooth, accurate, and bright. Remote control is convenient.
<br/>It's small enough to fit inside outdoor well lights.
<br/>Only issue I had was getting 3 bulbs to sync in one fixture. You can do it, but they don't stay synced when you turn them on and off after several uses.
