LED bulb choices
Down to the wire - We have to decide on our LED bulbs for our cans.
Cooper RL7 LED - good reviews 3000K. Uses a retrofit trim. Dims to 5% with LV dimmer. 636 Lumens 50000 hours
Ecosmart - screw in bulb - looks and acts almost like a regular light bulb with about a 1/2 second delay. 2700K. Dims - but reviews say does not dim as well as it claims (only to about 50%) 5 year warranty - but have heard of a few failing within the first year - red flag?
Phillips - Also have screw in models - again in the 600-650 lumen range - I think they have 2700 and 3000K
GE - New line of bulbs that either look like a PAR30 with a bunch of dots or a regular light bulb.
What has been your experience. Initially thought I wanted a regular screw bulb but am leaning towards the Coopers.
PS - I am getting a sneak preview of our lighting. With the 7 cans and 2 decorative lights - I think I will be able to see in my kitchen. Not so critical now, but with our family history of eye problems, it will be nice to have good lighting!
