    They sent 2 of the ungrounded ground plug model I had overnighted. Total waste of my money
    WENDY -- frankfort, IL   7/15/2013
    I was happy to find this with a quick on line search. Exactly what I was trying to replace. It was no longer carried at the store where it was originally purchased. Thank you, Smarthome!!
    KEVIN -- mclean, VA   12/22/2012
    It simply does not work. This is a bad product. Don't waste your money or your time.
    ANDY -- tewksbury, MA   1/12/2012
    This module works great. We keep our individual Christmas lights on several of these. They have never failed to work properly.
    DALE -- chatsworth, CA   12/31/2011
    purchased to replace a broken module but this didn't work either. Too tempermental with weather changes.
    CARLOS -- monterrey, XX   8/26/2011

    works ok
    MICHAEL -- pasadena, CA   1/14/2011
    These (new?) X10 Appliance modules seem to work fine with CFLs, LED light strings, and other non-resistive loads.
    ROBERT -- san benito, TX   8/12/2010

    I have been using X10 devices for about 20 years. With the recent move to CFL lights I have been having problems. Some CFL bulbs will flicker with this module while some CFLs will cause the module to turn back on. Neither of these conditions are acceptable. I have found that if I put a night light in parallel with the CFL, then there is no problem. I just found out that an LED night light buld will do also 1.7 watts, but this will still light when the module is off not sure what the current draw is. Now I wonder how small an incadecent light I could add to make the module work with CFLs. There used to be a way to modify these modules to remove the local control sensing. This would fix them, and for my uses would be just fine.

    Still the simplest technolgy and still works great
    JUAN M -- chia cund, XX   12/21/2009
    We use this devices since 1985 with very good response. We think the "power house " make are better than "x10 PRO" We have instaled hundreds of them since /85
    THOMAS -- powell, OH   11/26/2009
    Works with flourescent bulbs.
    FRED -- naples, FL   10/2/2009
    It worked the first time
