Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother The instructions say the bulb will go on and off while it sets itself up...doesn't say how long this process takes so left it for over half-an-hour during which time it went on and off as expected, then stayed off and never even flickered again until I was unscrewing it to put it back in the box. Unfortunately the type of shops where these were readily available are all but gone and the larger DIY stores either don't stock them or have the correct fitting, so I'm struggling to find the brands that made versions of these that last years before needing replaced - but this one is going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose Having bought this bulb to use in an outside porch light I found that it would not work in that application. It comes on when the daylight level is low but as soon as it detects any reflected light from the bulb it switches off within a few seconds. It therefore cycles on and off continuously. I can only assume that it might work in the middle of a dark field in a lamp without a shade or glass to reflect any of the light. I subequently read reports of other customers experiencing the same issue. Had to return for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works but does not last Firstly if you place this bulb inside a lantern with glass sides, reflected light will make the dusk to dawn feature fail. Yes this is a major likely usage of such a product. I solved this my finding a small plastic tube that leads from the red light sensor to the glass, touching the glass, attaching this tube with white insulating tape. This prevents reflection back into the sensor and the system works. BUT My 2nd bulb has just failed. They always fail just after a year of use! The yearly extra cost or replacing this once per year rather negates the energy saving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally useless. I agree with all the previous reviews. Fundamental design fault with these bulbs. I have been in correspondence with Maplin to suggest that customers should be warned that these bulbs cannot be used inside any reflective surface - so that means they cannot be used outside in glass! One of my bulbs blew within one night with all the constant flickering on and off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable This just cycles on and off. Its been on for several hours and continues to do it. I would guess it has something to do with the dusk to dawn sensor picking up stray light. Anyway its going back. Would advise against buying. fitting is also very wide at the base which could cause some issues too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I disagree with the other reviewers . Unlike other dusk to dawn sensor bulbs I have bought this one has an excellent feature which allows the sensor to be turned through 90 degrees . This enables it to be turned away from reflected light avoiding it switching off and on . I wonder if the other reviewers read the instruction sheet within the box explaining this feature . It is not obvious and not promoted on the packaging

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Best I got was 2 weeks Having read the reviews post buying these bulbs I can now appreciate why the best I got before the bulbs failed was 2 weeks... If I had known they were inferior I would have got a refund... Just go to a good electrical outlet. To be honest I put 1 star because it won't allow no stars!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Going back I read all the reviews for this product but bought yesterday in the hope that it wasntt going to happen to me Fitted them this morning and waited. Its now been dark for 2 hours and the bulbs have been going on and off for two hours! I'm still waiting .I will leave it until the morning and then they are going back

my light fitting requires three bulbs, will 3 of these bulbs work together?
