Nora Diamond vs eco4

harr423March 24, 2012

I have recently been looking at the eco4 and Nora housing combo. Just saw that Nora now offers a Cree based led solution,their diamond series. The Nora led runs triple the cost of the eco4. Anyone have an idea what you get with the Nora diamond led vs the eco4 other than a larger bill?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

From reading the specifications,
1. More trim options
2. Higher output 613 lumens vs 575 lumens. The actual light output per watt through is lower (55.75 vs 60.5)

The Cree CR4 has the advantage of having a significantly larger distribution channel and production run.

Technical info
The Cree lights (CR/ LR series) have an array of LEDs, (a mix of yellow red and white) below the lens which helps make the light output nice to look at.
