To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So, we have had the bulbs for less than a month. Both bulbs have went out. Never on for more than an hour at a time. My son went to put something in his room and the bulb is just not working anymore. The first bulb worked for 3 days .
They said to email about the remote and they'd answer in about twelve hours. It seems they know something is wrong with the remotes. Anyway, I never received a reply.
The light is great. The remote is not so great. I works maybe 70% of the time. The battery seems loose in the compartment. Also, the button color for the white light is orange-yellow, but the button for strobe says "f" for "flash," and while that makes sense to me, guests in the house keep putting it in strobe trying to turn it white and it's a really, really annoying feature to begin with. It also has a hard time coming out of that mode, because the remote isn't reliable.
We wanted to affix the remote to the wall so people wouldn't have to use the pull chain in the bathroom anymore. Instead, we got a difficult to control party light that guests can't figure out. It's useless if we have to explain it to people. At least make the remotes more reliable and PLEASE make the buttons more obvious for people who .. well, have difficulty operating things in general. Not me. I'm talking about house guests.
I love these bulbs, but I cannot use them in the same room where I have a SoundBar sound system that has a remote control. The IR channel is the same, so when you turn on the Soundbar, the lights turn on, go to super fast-flash mode, and go "white" colored. Other Soundbar controls do other random things (volume up makes the lights turn blue(, and the light remote does random things to the soundbar (off, volume down, changes input modes).
If you don't have another infrared (IR) remote controlled device in the room, these are fabulous lights. I wish I could use them!
Taking one star away because the light in my basement randomly turns on at night. This has happened more than once. To be clear - The other bulb/remote is on the second floor and was not used at all when this happens. Bright bulb and nice colors. The white light is a good warm color. Not a dull yellow color. Other colors are not as bright, but much brighter compared to the other rgb bulb I previously tried. There’s a fade button that fades between different color shades. One drawback is there’s no way to “freeze” one of these colors - so the specific color options are limited. First day, so can’t comment on longevity yet. But happy with the purchase so far.
The lightbulbs look great and woke just fine but if you have other Bluetooth products near by that use remotes they sometimes overlap. My sound bar is now exclusively connected to the lightbulbs and if I use the volume button it changes the color of the lights to such an aggressive strobe that can cause a seizure. So now I have two colored lightbulbs but a sound bar that doesn’t connect to my TV but the lightbulbs.
Great product. Sufficient white light output. But unfortunately 1 of the 2 that I just bought does not work. The prior two that I purchased work fine. I would love to send defective one back for replacement. But Amazon will not let me send back just the defective unit stating that I must send both back for replacement. Getting to the second bulb would be fairly hard to access (was just as hard to get up there in first place). Hopefully next set of bulbs will both work. So, 3 outta 5 stars.
Good and bad: Great LEDs - the standard turn-on “white” is a warm white and the brightness is great. Lots of color options and dimming. The problem was one of the two lights only turns on and works with remote about 10% of time. Not sure if it’s remote battery or light bulb issue. The other one actually stopped working a few times but now is working. So quality isn’t there with these, but if yours work consistently you’ll likely be happy. Just be prepared to return or exchange.
These are the brightest, color LED bulbs I've found. I bought 2 for my front porch, and they worked great for approximately 2 months - but they both went out at exactly the 2 month mark. I probably won't buy these again.
These are good...but not great...better than static bulbs...use these where you cant get wifi bulbs to connect...colors,are good but functions are limited.. cant change colors of 4 pre-set profiles...strobe/flash only works with white
Lights are great firstly. However the remote came broken, its super cheap feeling, and it runs on the same bandwidth as your tv remote or stereo remote. Meaning while watching tv if you change the volume the lights change to strobe setting or change color.
