Didn't disappoint, but here are some things you should know:
on September 24, 2013
Below is my review of each of the product's selling points:
► EASY TO INSTALL/JUST PEEL & STICK - I do not recommend using the adhesive that comes with the light. We originally tried to install it this way but it didn't hold, so we used nails instead.
► WIRELESS - True. This product requires 4 AA batteries to operate.
► STAYS BRIGHT FOR 100,000 HOURS - I'm not sure how long these last, as I've only had the product about a week. That being said I do know LEDs have longer life than other bulbs.
► INDOOR OR OUTDOOR - I assume this works well both indoors and outdoors, since we've had it on our deck for a week in rain and shine. I may move it down to the basement during the winter.
► 7 SUPER BRIGHT LEDs - I would not call them "super" bright. They were adequate for lighting up our deck but did not extend beyond, and was not bright enough to be the sole source of light if we needed to spend any time outside. That being said, it serves the purpose of lighting it up more than well enough as a temporary light source.
► PIVOTS - This feature works well. It's not difficult to move and stays put once you've placed it in the position you need.
► 360 DEGREE SWIVEL BASE - This also works well. Again, not difficult to maneuver and stays put.
► MOTION SENSOR - This feature has worked very well. We haven't had any issues with the light not turning on when expected.
My Final Word:
Overall, this product works as advertised except for two very important features: the brightness and the installation. Considering these are two of the biggest selling points, I had to rate this product 3 stars.
That being said, this product is a great deal for the cost, as I can see it being very useful indoors such as large closets, hallways (especially with young children), and basements. Most lights for indoor spaces require you to turn them on/off (no motion sensor) and I can see this being really useful. Also, it does work very well to light up our deck when we walk the dog. The placement features (pivoting/swiveling) and the motion sensor also work well and as advertised.
