The best and least expensive downlight ever.
I purchased 6 of these 9W LED Arlec downlights for our holiday place last year when they were only $10 each. They are tri-colour, that is they can easily be switched to 3000K, 4000K, or 6500K before you install them. They are warm white, white or cool white respectively and the light outputs are 700, 740 and 720 lumens respectively. I have recently bought two more for home [now the princely sum of $12 each] and they are brilliant, literally and metaphorically. They are fitted with a lead and plug and have an inbuilt driver and thus can simply b...e plugged into any GPO [power point] in the ceiling space or anywhere. They are so neat compared to older downlights which required large, heavy transformers which had to be connected to them. They are also dimmable. They spread the light evenly over a wide area and are very much better than the LEDs they replaced. They are extremely energy efficient. At only 9 watts, one of them lights a 3.1m x 3.1m room very brightly. They have a 3 year warranty and are possibly the best value for money purchase I can remember making. I have no connection with anyone who sells anything.
Questions & Answers
What’s cri about the Arlen 9w downlights ?
Hi, John Y. I assume you are wanting to know the CRI of the Arlec 9W downlights. CRI is subjective to a degree and the Arlec has three colours to choose from. You simply switch between the 3 and pick ...that which suits you. I have them set at 4000 kelvin as I particularly like the crisp, clean white it produces. Some prefer other settings. Further, the 4000K gives the highest lumen output, which is another reason for my choosing it. For the record, it has a CRI quoted as greater than 80 which is considered to be good by those in the know. Hope that helps.
