XQ Lite LED Floodlight 30W Black
Excellent quality floodlight
I bought this to replace a PIR unit which was being activated by a condensate plume from our CH boiler. Having decided to use a swched unit I bought this for the claimed light intensity and low power demand as it is fitted to a circuit for my garage lights. Appears to have stainless steel fittings and a proper gland entry for the cable (Hurrah - I live near the sea where such things rust and rot easily).
Have to say that I am not disappointed bar a couple of niggles
The people who design items like this should be forced to try and install this themselves up a ladder 20' off the ground! I saw earlier advice to prewire the unit on the ground rather than do this at height. Very wise! I did just that. Fit the bracket to the wall as stated in the instructions and then the unit complete with its cable with the gland tightened. However - now the hard bit!
The lamp is fastened to the bracket using two hex head set-screws, 1 x plain washer and one split spring washer which goes between the lamp and its bracket. Fairly easy to do for one side, but impossible to do for the second side as you cannot get the spring washer between the lamp and bracket on side 2. Not 20' up a ladder. So you may need to omit that.
Product could be improved by having profiled surfaces on lamp screw boss and or bracket, thereby doing away with the need for a spring washer.
I would still recommend

Very promising price point but as an electrician I needto know if its Warm white or Daylight. If its ideal replacement for halogen can I assume its warm white light output?

Robust LED Floodlight
The Floodlight seems well made and give a reasonable amount of light and is economical. It doesn't come with any fixings which would need to bought separately. It is quite heavy compared to normal halogen bulb light you can buy and it would be helpful if the 2 different holes sizes on the mounting bracket were stated (10mm & 12mm) so that purchase of suitable fixings to mount it could be made at the same time.
I can't state how reliable it is yet as it has only just been installed so I have given my review as average until proved otherwise. However I hope that it is more reliable than some of the other LED products I have bought ijn the past which state longevity of 25000 hours only to have them fail within a fraction of the life expected.
