i don't know how much u paid for ur lights,
but i got the CR6 rebadged by HD for around 35$ each off ebay
at 50 000+ hours i'll probably never see the end of any
( unless a few are defectives ..even then i have some spares so )
the recessed housing they come with is just a pure delight, the recessed depth is almost perfect for home use even with high ceilings
the light is near perfect ( i have only had very positive comments about the quality of light in the bathroom they are installed in )
the CREE are no heat issues at all even with closed drywall ceilings
they'll last only a bit less than on my suspended ceilings
then, i've tested the LR6 VS incandescants and halogens for months before commiting to a purchase ( the price back then was not good at ~ 60$/unit ... )
and i can say that they 12-13W LR6 light up a small room just as good as a 100W halogen tube under a glass ornement, and as much as a 60-80W incan bulb would do
( i compared to 60W and 100W ..the 100W was much brighter than the LR6..but not the 60W .. but then the distribution of the light was not the same with a bulb than with the LR6 config ..but who wants the ceiling to be lighted as much as the wall/floors .. )
and the quality of the light is on par or better than any of the highly non efficient standard lamps i've tested
i urge you guys to test the CR6 out ..if you are in the USA ( which i am not .. )
you can get them pretty cheap at HD rebadged ..
but, hey !
back to TOPIC !!!
wass up with that ?
