Adds great effect to the stage lighting (I bought 2)
By Amazon Customer
I was concerned when I first plugged it in because it kept going off and on at random. Took me a few minutes to figure out that it is sound activated and if there is no sound, the light goes on and off (not quite a strobe but will come on for a few seconds, go out for a second, come on for 5 seconds, etc...). This would have probably irritated me except that I bought these for my band to take to shows and after using them in our practice space for about an hour, the sound activation grew on me. Now I actually prefer it to a constant light. Adds great effect to the stage lighting (I bought 2).
I didn't see that feature in the description (maybe I should pay more attention) and in another situation, it may have irritated me but, like I said, it worked out. There is no way to turn off the sound activation feature. No power switch, just plug in to turn on. The light itself seems relatively cheap which I expected, but if you just take care of them I sure there won't be an issue.
Sweet light, would buy again.

GREAT Price for Awesome Light Show! (But Be Watchful For Sparks & Flames!)
This little globe is surprisingly bright and puts on a great light show, especially for the price of the unit. Without music actively playing, there's a bit of a squeak that can be annoying. The USB flash drive that comes with it has an assortment of cheesy pop song samples from what I assume is the origin country of the device. You will likely want to replace (remove the files) those with your own assortment of mp3 music files if you intend to play music through the USB interface. Otherwise, the Bluetooth will let you connect via computer or other smart device to play your favorite songs.
After several uses, I began to experience sparks and trouble keeping this machine's plug in a position that kept the juice flowing. It would short out and glitch pretty much constantly. The prongs on the US compatible cord are two very plain, simple, equal in size metal bits instead of the usual format where one prong is a bit wider to ensure it can only be oriented in the correct way when plugging the unit into the wall outlet. Because of this, it is impossible to tell if it is being plugged in with the positive and negative going the right way, and the missing extra width prevents it from fitting snugly into the slots of the outlet, allowing a bit of droop. Given that it has taken to throwing sparks out of the outlet from time to time, I don't want to take any chances at setting a fire in my house, so this product gots to go!

Such a great deal! I want 5 more
By Amazon Customer
Wow! I'm impressed. I opened this light and thought "Ugh, it's tiny, this won't work for my party (that takes place in a gym with high ceilings)" BUT, does it ever! It reaches all the way to my 20 foot ceiling! This little thing is powerful! I put my phone next to it while playing music (with the speaker toward the light) and what a show! Such a great deal! I want 5 more!! Great price, great product!
