Anyone tried the ES27 LED light bulbs with built-in motion detector?

    I'm wondering if anyone on here has tried them and if so what they think of them.
    They appear to be everything I need, and the only thing they seem to lack is a means of setting the run-on timer. They come preset to 40 seconds, which should be fine for most situations where you only need light when you have movement. (You couldn't use one in a toilet where you would be having to wave your arms just to keep the light on!)
    Here is an example of the sort of thing I'm referring to (

    Have got a couple of bayonet ones: they work fine.

    Thanks for responding.
    When they say they detect motion up to 180 degrees, to which plane are they referring? With both ES and BC, you don't have much of a choice about pointing the bulb in the direction where you're wanting it to detect motion, so are they referring to a full hemisphere of detection or is it 180 degrees in a horizontal plane, i.e. they won't detect anything behind that 180 degrees?
