Thanks for the link.

I had one more question, what about those light fixtures that have a bunch of bulbs on them? Are they considered one outlet or is each bulb considered it's own outlet?

Wiring 10 pot lights to a single switch is the same as wiring a single light fixture with 10 bulbs on it, right?
I believe its one outlet with multiple bulbs. The potlights are calculated load because they cant be changed.

Note also the "other guys" have a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of ONLY 80, while ours / Lowes have a CRI of 90+.
For the geeks (like me) here's what it means
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_rendering_index

For newbies, it means that in the early days of LED lighting only CRI 80 was achievable. With new technology and high end chips 90+ is achievable.
The higher the CRI the more colors you will see, the lower the CRI the more washed out the colors are. Kind of like how fluorescent lights are. They pretty much max out at 80 CRI

Lowes / Trenz are 90+ and the best on the market. As well, as you dim them, they hold both their color temperature (3K or 4K) and CRI, (90+) whereas off brand LED chips will change color (usually to greenish) as you dim them.
You mention that your product is CRI 90+ but yet all the packaging mentions 80+.

How does your product compare to Lotus?

What brand of LED’s is in your fixtures?

Once again it looks like this has been extended another week at Lowe's. I was at the store here in Sudbury tonight and it looks like they had lots of 3000k stock left but very little 4000k.

Anyone used this for soffits? I would love to see a pic at night with them on before I go and cut holes everywhere. I'm worried about the beam angle being too great to highlight architectural details.

I just ordered a hole saw this morning, if I get a chance I'll be putting a couple in my soffit over the weekend.

Where is a good place to buy cheap hole saw for these? Homedepot / Lowe’s are over $50 for 4 1/4 hole saw.

Also what size hole saw, 4 3/16 or 4 1/4 ?

4 1/4' worked well for me. I got the yellow DeWalt one off Amazon, cheapest could find after watching it for a few weeks. It was down at $33 last Friday.

Question for Fritz the Cat...

I purchased some of these potlights soffits:

1) Can the potlight trim/border be spray painted to colour match the soffits?
2) Will painting void the warranty?

I don't have a picture of my install, but I installed two, 4000k lights 60" apart in my soffits last Friday. I have a single story home and I would say the 60" spacing is too close for accent lighting. These give off a lot of light wich is good for general illumination, that's what I was after. A wider spacing, maybe 96" in the soffit of a two story house, might give you a different effect. The other option is dimmers too control the output on them to get a better effect. Overall though I'm happy with the lights and my install. I wanted these to illuminate my deck when I'm using the BBQ at night and it does this perfectly. I'm going to try and put them on a dimmer to see what the final result is like.

Costco has 2-packs for $7.99
They do, I just returned 8 packs of them. The Costco lights are inferior to these in everyway apart from the price.

1-lack of moisture won't hurt the lights operation
2-you install the spares purchased this week at sale price
