Great light, worth the price for lifetime savings!
on August 26, 2014
I used one of these over my shower and one over my sink. Initially, I was concerned that a single LED fixture couldn't put out enough light for my needs, but this worked like a charm. I installed a remodel IC housing from Halo, screwed the included adapter into the housing, and finally made the connection to the light. Presto! Let there be light! Bingo! Great Scott!
So... it wasn't all that eventful, but it works perfectly and puts out enough light to get the job done. I wouldn't say the sole fixture is enough to create "bright" conditions, but in conjunction with my kitchen overhead light, this does a good job of throwing the extra beams required to keep the sink lit while I do the dishes. If you really want BRIGHT, then use two over your sink. Same goes for the shower... I have an overhead light in the center of the room and only one of these targeted right over the 4'x4' shower. It casts enough light to keep the space well lit, but on its own it is more "moody" than bright.
If you are looking to really LIGHT UP A ROOM, then use several of these or try the T60 version. I installed 4 commercial electric T60 lights in my living room (~20'x20') and that was enough provide warm, easy light. T60 is a slightly whiter light (3000K vs 2700k) but the same 65watt equivalence. I am sure these T65 would have the same effect if you didn't care for the dimming function.
There is a very slight delay to from the flick of the switch to the activation of the light, but its milliseconds if that. Doesn't bother me at all given that I will never have to pay for another bulb and these cost NOTHING to run. I usually leave the sink light on when I am not home and my SDGE bill is ~$20/month for my three bedroom house with gas appliances.
