Worst LED Fixtures « on: September 10, 2016, 05:19:44 PM » Author: wattMaster
What's the worst LED fixture you have seen?
The worst I have seen is one at the beach, it was one of those ultra-cheap Ebay Corn-On-The-COB LED floodlights. The problem with it is that it has loads of glare, and had a very purple light, enough to make me think they used purple LEDs!

Where are daylight fluorescents when you need them?

"What's the worst LED fixture you have seen?"

So far, all of them!  I was watching the news, and they had a story about how LED streetlights are bad for people because of the color temperature and how many people are advocating against them now, many of them being MDs and DOs, because of how they affect people's sleep.  Some cities have started ordering LED fixtures with 3000 & 3500K color temperatures instead of the between 4-6000K color temps that have been seen going up. My PCP prefers HPS luminaires due to the warm hues.  I asked him what he says when people ask about the terrible CRI, and he said that if you want to see things for their color, wait for daylight, but streetlights are designed to light the street and if they do that, and do not affect the sleep patterns of his patients, then they are doing their job.  He thinks LEDs are just someone's political game

I don't like the new LED post top fixtures here, because they have a glare-filled stark white light.

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I'm antiLED and hope that the LED lighting will be phased out in favor of old lighting technologies soon.

One hour use straight out of the box or you managed to get lucky to see its last hour after an unknown amount of hours it did over the time it was in service?

Wondering if it's worth going after them for collection or not. If it only last one hour straight out of the box then not really worth it. Then I looked the things up. Yeah, no. Not worth it. Kinda ugly IMO. Shocked Cheesy LOL!

Worst LED fixtures... Anything without a brand name coming out of China thru eBay and such. Can't trust them. No brands no way of going after them if it dies too early.

Ugly LED fixtures... The Greenstar horrors! Two of them has decided to present themselves in my area. Ugly in person as they're ugly in Internet pics.

The Autobahn? LOL! Not ugly. Not even close! They look more cobrahead than many LED fixtures. A slimmer one at that.

My god. If you think that's ugly... I'm glad I didn't post a pic of the Greenstar in here. Don't wanna be here if anyone else decides to do so. Shocked LOL!
