Works, use it with CFL bulbs (carefully), not UL Listed
on December 18, 2013
I can believe that other reviewers had these sockets fail if they used traditional incandescent bulbs in it. The heat from those bulbs would undoubtedly take its toll on the plastic, making it brittle. If you want to use incandescents, buy a more expensive UL-Listed unit that has ceramic sockets (I've seen them elsewhere, not on Amazon). Otherwise, use CFL (spiral) bulbs in this one to keep the heat down (and pay attention to it, as I will mine). It is not UL listed, I suspect, because it cannot handle the heat generated by incandescents. Oh, I should mention mine is working just fine initally; I'm using 4 ordinary 27W CFL (spiral) lamps in a ceiling fixture.
