Surely 120w eco is the same as 120w or 10 times more expensive to run than a 12w led. any savings will be eaten up by higher electricity bill

These just waste electricity. I replaced all with Led.
Does not have PIR as per main pictur

Doesn’t look like it includes the sensor.

Still, not bad for a nicker, heat from me.

For £1 you buy the light + £24 in electricity (@14p/kwh) gives you 1428 hours of constant light for £25

How many hours must elapse on a led before you start saving?

look at the picture I highlighted the estimated costs, roughly £30 to run this or £3 for an LED

30-3=27 9 months? before breaking even and saving the planet for future generations.

Or go the Yank way and sod every body

Saving the planet is questionable

I do have all led home,

But in another house I fitted an led flood light, which has lasted about 2 months before stopping working, this happened twice, first got replaced under warranty, second time the shop replaced it again but I paid even more to buy what they said was a „better quality” unit which is now working 2 years+

How much waste did that generate?

That was a postscript that was probably inspired from some reduced bottles of port from the Co-op. I'm not a tree hugger!
Just buy some led bulbs & retro fit them. They do exist. Bought one for my work light. Will work out cheaper in long run as cheap led floodlights can be false economy as if the led chip goes, you have to replace the whole unit.

Ive got 2 old school 500w halogen flood lights in my back garden... they only switch on for less than a 1-2 mins in a month (all together)... so even if they such 500W, it dont bother me because they are not switched on all the time/everyday.

I havent seen increment in my bill and ive got them for over 4-5 yrs.
DO save the planet !
Do your bit.. buy up as many as you can find and drive them directly to the recycling centre
Voted Cold due to running too Hot

If you are having intruder/vandal problems an old school 500w for ~£12 is a viable option.
They give out so much light that no dodgies will want to be in the light and at low price replaceable if smashed.
For illumination purposes led is of course the only way.

Thats why I have the 500W old school lights for, to deter intruders.

For illumination purpose, I have 1000W halogen council light right outside my house, so the whole driveway is lit-up every evening (dusk to dawn) 365 days.
