10-Watt (75W Equivalent) 6-inch Recessed LED Downlight Trim, 750 Lumens, Warm/ Soft (3000K) - Dimmable
Get a longer lasting, safe, and affordable alternative to standard incandescent downlights using this 10-watt 6-inch Recessed LED Downlight Trim from Monoprice!
This 120-volt light assembly uses only 10 watts of power, but produces 750 lumens of light energy at 3000K, equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent downlight.
This aluminum, indoor light assembly is 7.3" in diameter and 2.8" tall. It uses the Sanan SMD2835 chipset, is rated for up to 50,000 hours of use before failure, and carries a three year replacement warranty. The power factor is greater than 0.95.
It generates light in the 3000K range with a Color Rendering Index greater than 80, which generates the kind of soft and warm feeling that is perfect for most home lighting needs. This light is fully dimmable without risk of damage to the bulb or a reduction in its expected life span.
Monoprice warrants these bulbs for a full THREE (3) YEARS and will provide a new replacement for any bulbs that fail due to defects in materials or workmanship during the warranty period.
I've been following LED for many years and waited till they would evolve, I almost bought $200 early LED bulbs years ago, but refrained. This last year seemed to be the breaking point in the market, and LED's finally hit their stride though many that you find at home improvement stores are still way overpriced.
I have a 25 year old tract home whose old can lights only have the old painted over "ring flashing" that is spring loaded against the ceiling around the outside of the can (which also leaked a ring of white light at it's edge at the ceiling). New fixtures have a ridged ring that will taper inward behind the bulb to hide the large gap that lets you see up into the can around the enclosure, but mine did not. Thus this area often gets spiderwebs and looks ugly.
I'd wanted to retrofit these can lights for years, but replacement rings had to be figured out, found at a store, and could cost a good bit of money when it's all said and done. So this stayed on the "honey do list" until last week, when I saw these replacement units from Monoprice!
- As you'll see below, installation is easy.
- I really like that these are dimmable.
- When at full strength they pretty well match the existing 75 watt incandescent floods I've been using.
- When less than full strength, the light keeps the temperature (or perhaps a little more white), whereas incandescent lights shift heavily reddish. So, when next to each other the LED seems more cool.
- The light output when dimming is very linear from full to minimum, the incandescent lights are not.
- At minimum output (this may be my dimmer), they are a little brighter than the soft orange of the incandescent bulbs.
- Plane of the LED light is lower than my older bulbs were so the light spreads further around the room, which I like.
- Overall I'm extremely pleased, and will be buying more to replace bulbs in the remaining fixtures.
- I got the 75 Watt model, but they also have a 65 Watt and 120 Watt model, I think the 120-W would be great in a workroom, kitchen, garage or office.
INSTALLATION: Easy, literally 2 minutes!
1 - Remove old bulb
2 - Lift spring hooks (or squeeze wire arms) holding old ring in place and remove ring.
3 - Find the two inward facing hooks made of the sheet metal of the can wall, they will be sets on opposite sides of the can. These sometimes may need to be bent in from can wall, depending upon your model.
4 - Screw in the bulb connector into the old bulb base.
5 - Hook one side of the wire springs in one side of the hooks and squeeze the other side of the wire spring till it fits in the other hook. Basically, they will both be sticking up almost vertically and the light will be hanging flat downward, ready to slide up and inside.
6 - A little upward pressure and the unit pulls itself up and sits sturdily against the ceiling like the rings of the old can hardware.
7- All done, turn on the lights!
PROS: Very Easy Install.
Light color and output level is great.
Price... or should I say MONOPRICE!
Light is close to the incandescent being replaced.
No light leakage at edges of the ring near the ceiling.
The unit looks very professional and nice when installed.
CONS: Doesn't have fancy color/temperature settings.
PROS: Bought six of them. They came quickly and were easy to install.
When I turn them on the room get bright and I can see.
When I turn them off the room gets dark again.
PROS: Attractive, includes trim, bright
CONS: Maybe a little too bright, but you can use a dimmer
PROS: Easy installation. Nice warm color. Price. Clean finish.
CONS: Limited to only purchasing 10. 10 watt LED.
PROS: Easy install and Looks great
CONS: Not as "warm" of light as I expected but close enough
PROS: All of the lights worked out of the box. They are bright and look great
CONS: So far so good. There were 2 out of 80 that had a slight yellowish tinge, but otherwise all the rest looked the same and seem to function flawlessly.
PROS: Totally as advertised after two weeks of use. Good color and good brightness
CONS: Not a negative just a fact - there are multiple mounting system for can housings. This is great for the spring wire type mount (you can see in the photo the wire that stick out. Make sure you housing has the pre punched slots for this type system. Some of my cans use a coil spring mounting system and will require a retro fit to make this work.
PROS: Seem to be very high quality materials. Baffles create a nice dispersion of the light. Quite bright, and a nice color temp (3,000, which is a little whiter than traditional incandescents). The price is great.
CONS: Don't dim all the way, however I'm interested to try the Cooper dimmer switch that one user claims allowed him to dim completely.
PROS: Good color temperature. Sturdy housing. Dimmable. Pretty easy to install.
CONS: I put these in my finished basement on a circuit with three lights: 2 can lights and 1 drop light. My only concern with these is the dimming function doesn't seem to work very well unless I keep one of the three lights incandescent. I'm no ready to blame the LED's just yet. There's also a motion sensing switch on the circuit, and that may be messing with the mix. If you install these with a motion sensor
