The first thing that I noticed about the bulb is the height.  It is just tall enough that it may not work in all light fixtures.  Once installed and powered on I quickly realized that it is not bright, certainly not 10W bright.  Compared to a 7W LED bulb you can barely even tell that it is powered on.  The remote control works from a reasonable distance and had no problem cycling the bulb through all 16 colors, adjusting the brightness, and turning it on and off.  The problems came when trying to switch between the different modes.  Sometime it would work without an issue, while other times it would take minutes to change or get stuck in a flashing fit that may cause some people to have a seizure.

I really wanted to like this light as it is one of the few bulbs of this type that I have tested with a standalone remote.  Many other bulbs require you to use an app on your phone which is not always practical.  I hope that Etrech is able to work the bugs out and release a revised version of the bulb, but until then I have a hard time recommending it.
