I found these in Home Bargains at Southend On Sea.Hopefully there in all stores. I've bought this brand of their standard led bulbs before and had no failures to date. Not shown on their website however could be a new or limited range.
Seemed a good deal at £11.99 for a 20w PIR floodlight. You can't normally get a non PIR 20w for this price. Quality looks good with metal surround and heatsink on the back. lt Also has 3 settings for Daylight, Sensitivity and Light Duration.

As well seen in Home Bargain Colchester. Was tempted to buy but i really do not need another one. The 10W one is about £9 and the 10W without sensor version is £5. All good prices in my opinion. Cannot comment on quality as i have not used them.

I also have 2 of the non PIR 10w 800 lumen floodlights at £5. They are relatively small and make great work lamps for minimal cost.

Just what I am looking for, thanks OP

I bought the £11.99 one, they seem quite good, they are already wired with a short length of flex. The PIR is fully adjustable according to the English manual. The LED is an array LEDs not a single one. Usually PIRs end up either staying on permanently or flashing on and off at irregular intervals (that's my experience anyway) but at this price it's worth just disconnecting the PIR and using it without.

The PIR's of old were not great. A 500w halogen bulb switching across the contacts of a cheap mains relay often caused the issues you've stated such as sticking contacts or performing erratically. Not sure about this product but modern led PIR's are low enough current to switch via solid state circuitry eliminating the need of a relay.

I did some testing on this light today. It is reasonably bright at 1600 lumens. I can confirm that construction is very good with an all metal body and glass face. It is also solid state so no relay to cause issues in the future. The 3 setting controls all worked fine with good sensitivity.
The only downside is you can't hardwire from inside the light only connect to the existing piece of short flex.

Don't think I could better this for the price. Hope this helps.
