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!
Maybe you can PM me the photo?

Where are daylight fluorescents when you need them?

Why are you taking a cobrahead as a standard for beauty anyway ? I consider LED ugliness by whether the LED dots are visible without optics, not by similarity to non LED lanterns..

I assume because there are no other choices, bucket lights maybe, except the good looking ones seem to be rare.

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

they are horribly glarey and seem to have that sickening effect that the other ones they use here don't. Plus I have seen more failures of these than other ones.

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.
It had been in service, but thats the issue, we had them installed in my town a few months ago, within the first 3 weeks, I counted 1 diode board fail, and 3 complete outages!, the best LED installation near me I have seen to date, has been using Holophane`s Factor Large LED lanterns.

These have been up for about 4 years now, (some 40 odd lanterns on the same stretch of road), and there have been NO fails, and not one diode has gone out on their boards yet!

Cant you evaluate lanterns by themselfes, not by comparing to other lanterns ? (i am talking about looks here, not about performance)

I think beauty is all relative, so you have to compare them to other things.
What I mainly don't like with most LED streetlights are the very small LEDs they use, so you have an array of point sized light sources.

Likely my least favorite LED fixture right now is this one.
