Great deal for these lights. LED bulbs alone are usually $100 a pair in these 4 foot sizes.

I know you're planning on putting in the LED fixture, however a 4' T8 4 lamp electronic ballast is pretty cheap. HD has them for $15.


FWIW, I saw these again at Costco and was tempted. Anyone have before and after illumination photos?
I figured it was the time to retrofit the kitchen lights and the ballast failing gave me a good excuse. I may only end up using one, as the rated lumens output is similar to a 2x 4 foot T8 fixture (my fixture is a 4x T8), but the LEDs have a 180 degree direction which focuses the light a bit more rather than a 360 degree for the fluorescent. In my tests (I have not finished with all of the work), it seems to put off a similar quantity of light as compared to the old fixture.


As heads up, what I have done is changed the octagon box to a 4x4 square box, installed an outlet, and am re-purposing the old fixture (after stripping out the ballast and bulb holders) so that i won't have to remount the diffuser. The LEDs are being mounted to the old fixture and the old fixture is being mounted back on the ceiling with the wood diffuser attached.

Half the lumens and half the power consumption at more than twice the price of standard lights. This is slickdeals right? Where we find value in products and not just sales on overpriced stuff?

I too have the 4 qty 4' light troffer in the kitchen. Thinking of putting in can lights with LED PAR lights especially now that they're getting reasonably priced and Edison is subsidizing some.

Interested in hearing how your retrofit turns out.

Passed by this yesterday. Highly tempting for the garage. Wanted to read up on the reviews before I jumped in though. So close to pulling the trigger!

Service life. Power consumption. Replacement bulbs. Durability. Heat generation & related secondary power consumption.

This stuff has been argued endlessly with tons of nerds doing the math for you.

At $40, from Costco - these make sense for a lot of people.

The best Slickdeals offer a strong overall value. But it's also perfectly acceptable to post a good price for a given item, even if it is not really a good value.

SD would be awfully boring if it was just full of utilitarian stuff.

Lots of LED stuff going on in the RV community. Big draws are less heat, less watts, less maintenance. Big drawbacks are color of light, (warm vs. cool), basically a new industry, and cost.

I redid my RV throughout, and will never go back. My experience is that it takes about 70% Lumens for LED vs. Florescent.

Picture of two units, one LED, one fluorescent in my RV. Which is which?

Anyone hard wire these? I want to install these in my garage flush mount, but hard wire them so I don't have cords/plugs. I was thinking dissembling the plug end and seeing if I can reroute the wire through the top if I drill the same diameter hole in the top of the housing and run the cord/grommet through there. Is that a stupid idea?

@hbus1300 - You can do that but it will invalidate your warranty...

@HDinAZ - I'd say the right one is the LED. Smilie

I also vote with the right side one.

I'm fixing up my garage and put up one of these LED lights. I was really impressed with how bright it was. I picked up 2 more to finish off the rest of the garage. Cool

Side note: I guess we could have looked at the picture file name to see what the answer is. lol

I did pick one of these up for the garage. It's a nice light, and appears to put out the equivalent useful light that my two T8 fixture did (64w total). I mostly bought it because my garage is unheated, and it's a PITA when it's below freezing out there and I need to quickly grab something while the T8's would slowly heat up.

Feit is kinda dodgy as a LED manufacturer, but the Costco warranty is what sold me.

I went back to pick up one of these today, and they're gone. Closest store with stock is 2 states away, and they're now on discontinued status w/Costco.

So enjoy the ones you have folks, probably won't be seeing them again.

Ditto above, had several 2 days ago at my local store and went this afternoon to pick a few up and they were all sold out. Just my luck!

Moral of the story, if you want it you better buy them now before they sell out. You can always return them later

My local store no longer has them. Both Northridge & Fullerton have 44 of them. She mentioned Garden Grove too. Hope that helps! Cool

I found two on the shelf this morning. They weren't in stock prior at either of my stores. Appear to be unopened. Perfect timing for this....
