Great price, if the quality is any good.

Note, though, that it is not dimmable. Not that I would expect it to be at this price

I'm a bit suspicious when they specify 1600 lumens for all three color temperatures at 18W. Normally you'd expect a higher reading from a daylight or cool white bulb than from a warm white one at the same wattage.

At least they are up-front in reporting the actual wattage and lumens. So many LED fixtures and bulbs only tell you their incandescent equivalent in watts, which they invariably miscalculate in their favor.

I want to like these styles of lights, but they have an design flaw; at least all that I've seen. Incandescent bulbs cast light in all directions as do actual LED bulbs. These fixtures aren't bulbs and the majority of their light is focused down. I like the slim profile but the slim profile means the light is mainly focused down and very little light is cast out. In my son's room, where we have one of these slim LED fixtures, the light looks more like a spot light and less like a room light.

I still like the design and my son likes the light, though I think it's a terrible. I wouldn't avoid these lights, but think knowing how they work will help someone know where it should be installed. If I were to get another one, I'd put it at the top or bottom of our stairs or a small room.

So true. Thanks!
Just 1 slight modification: the lumens and the Kelvin values are generally independent of each other.
Lumens will tell you how bright it is. (So 1600 lumens is pretty good for a small area.)
Kelvin will tell you the temperature color (or warmth - love all these different descriptions Smilie
If you like more of the 'sunlight' like color for the light, go for 4000K or higher (I usually prefer the 5000K or natural daylight). I know people who find that overly 'sunny' - so worth experimenting.
Thus, it isn't that unusual to have the same lumens at the same wattage with different color temperatures.

PS: I don't know anything about this brand or this ceiling light. I just had been looking for new ones for my place. Costco had a few, but I needed a bit smaller size to what they were selling.

It's small, only 9". Typical light should be 12" or bigger for average rooms.

Use for surface mounted perimeter or a soffit light around the room that you want to focus more or less straight down.

The issue some have with these LED lights that do not use replaceable bulbs, is that when it goes bad, you are off chasing for a new light and if you don't feel comfortable changing out, hiring someone to do it.

Not really they differ by 50-100 lumens depending on manufacture. 1600/18w is good enough

So, I know someone mentioned the head of the stairs. Assume they would also be of good use in a closet?

I can see it working well in tighter smaller rooms like above a shower or in a water closet. The waterproof rating adds to this belief.

the amazon pics made the light look much larger than it actually is. 9 inch is very small for a ceiling light imo

For bathrooms? Or placement under water heaters in attics?... Probably a range of other reasons...
