equivalent of 100w lamp so to start it isn't that bright for an outdoor spotlight and I doubt you could shoehorn anything brighter in, also it is only going to light up 1/3rd of the unit looking at it as they have used a traditional housing for a full length halogen 300w lamp and converted it rather than using a long style cfl lamp with the housing set outside the reflector, and it would need a fast reacting lamp to make use of the PIR as you are no doubt going to need to wait a minute for it to come up bright enough.
This is just my opinion as an engineer that it screams cheap tat and would end up leaving 2 holes in the wall after you return it. (even the picture shows the lamp sagging in the holder)

You know, that's what I was going to say.

EWWW
Energy-saving 23W E27 bulb included. In other worlds a compact florescent which takes ages to heat up to produce an average light output!

LED is the way forward so not voting ether way.

i agree, led ones far better and not much more money

A CFL controlled by a PIR - it'll die pretty quickly. Yet more landfill useless tat. LED is the way to go.

I Think is very good,according to price.Very Bright, Ilove it

These lights were on sale again very recently. £11.99 instead of £9.99. Still a CFL light paired with a PIR sensor, which will completely destroy the lifespan of the CFL. I calculated the lifespan of the bulb to be anywhere from 50-750 hours, depending on lamp setting.
Plus, it's rated 23W so will only be equivalent to a 92W tungsten or 70W halogen lamp.
My advice: it's an E27 base so get it out and stick an LED in!
