To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First and foremost, these lights are crazy bright. Our basement is just under 8ft tall to the base of the rafters. I replaced 3 sets of fluorescent tubing lights with 5 of these LED tubes. The difference is night and day...they're almost too bright.
My only real issue is with the ever so short hardwire cord. You're basically stuck having to install the first light right next to a junction box. Someone in the Q&A mentioned that they cut the plug off of the plug wire and used that. I gave it a go and it worked brilliantly. Don't attempt this if you don't have a decent set of wire strippers. But if you do, it's a great workaround. Otherwise, the lights are easy to install and are super light so they stay up really easily.
Huge amount of light for my 13'x14' shop space. Only complaint is the LEDs themselves are not very well manufactured. there is yellow banding in the projected light. Hard to explain. If you put a large white sheet under the lights, or even a sheet of plywood, you will see bands of yellow being projected onto your work surface. Okay for my work, but not okay for color critical work like painting or staining. May try diffusing the covers to see if that evens things out. They do run a bit hot as well so I would not place them directly against a painted ceiling.
I installed a bunch of these in our garage after I went to my neighbors house. He installed them throughout his garage and this was a MUST HAVE!
These are super light weight and put out BLINDING light and that is a great thing! Coming from some incandescent lights and a silly setup with my Dewalt shop lights these make the garage SOOOOOO much easier to do work in.
My ONLY complaint with these are the connections. I had some of the lights stop working when connected end to end. My solution was to use the smaller connection wires (included in my purchase) between three of the sets.
Other than that they simply work great!
As someone who works regularly on mine/friends vehicles and detailing these lights are game changers!
I have been running them for quite some time and aside from the connection issue mentioned before these are great!
Installed these in my non-climate controlled garage 2 years ago. These are usually on for about 3 hours total a day. Bought a replacement set because of how bright these are, and they dropped my energy bill by a pretty reasonable amount.
Perfect for auto detailers or mechanics that need a ton of light.
