In that case, its not very bright Im in need of one too!

Heat given as it is cheap for an LED spotlight but IP44 (Splashproof), not great for fixing outdoors when it is starts to rain (or snow) heavy...............really need IP56 or IP65 if you are fixing outdoors (open to the elements).

Just installed 2 of these, one for driveway and one for back door area. The one in the driveway replaces a 120w R7S bulb unit and isn't as bright, a much whiter/bluer light, but perfectly adequate for lighting the entire driveway,

does it light up instantly ?

When one is activated I can hear a clickling sound and the light comes on full brightness within a second.

Might be a silly question but how is this powered?

Does it have a long lead with a standard plug attached?

No, you'll have to run twin and earth mains cable to it. I'd suggest the best way to do it is to use a switched FCU fitted with a 3 amp fuse for the light switch and connect it into the ring main, however as it is quite low current, you should be able to get away with connecting to the lighting circuit.
There a guide of sorts for installing security lights here:-
