Curious.... Would these be much more efficient than an old T-8 fixture & transformer with drop-in LED tubes?

Theoretically, if the LED efficiencies are the same, going from 120v->transformer->tube would be less efficient. BUT I think it mainly depends on the fixture and LED tubes. Some drop-in LED tubes essentially asks you to bypass the transformer and send 120v straight to the tubes.

Also say if it was 20% difference or 8 watts for the 40w....and electricity is $0.20/kWh...1000 hours is only $1.6 difference. So you can decide if you'll ever save enough to equalize. Of course there's the environment/save the planet factor...

It sounds nice that the "Integrated LED Bulb-No bulbs to replace", but it also means when the bulb goes, the whole thing needs to be thrown out.

The expected bulb life is always shorter than what they claim (state) of 50000hr, but do people have experience on how long they actually last?

I've had issues with some LED shop lights like these. Some of them would prevent my garage remote from working, probably from electrical noise/interference.

Thanks OP - I picked up 6 of the Feit 4' strips last time they were $15 and a few adaptors to add 2 - 2 pronged outlets to a ceiling socket... they worked great for brightening the garage and storage rooms. Just bought a couple more since they are such great value. Each strip comes with hardware to hang or ceiling mount and they've each got their own long cord and switch if you'd rather plug directly into the wall.

Here are the adaptors I picked up... It's all working so great with the existing light switch vs hardwiring.

Don't like plug ins. Always use hardwired.

I had one wired in the basement in a section that I call it my laundry area (for the winter) ... space has yet to be walled up yet ... consists of my freezer, hot water tank, furnace, and the white laundry tub.

The other hardwired one is in my tools room:

I had purchased the Lithonia 32-W Wraparound Light Fixture from Rona on clearance for $14.99 when they were closing down shop in Oshawa. So I picked up two. I should have picked up a couple more as if you can blend it into a ceiling in the basement ... they won't look that bad.

To some ... they look old school and ugly.

But I prefer hardwired so that I can just flick the switch instead of looking in the dark for the outlet to plug it in to get light.

I had bought the 15$ FEIT one, installed them in the garage, very easy.

And as well, bought this from HD.
Also 15$. Much brighter and gangable.

Anyone have these in an unheated workspace? Wouldn't mind throwing a few of these in my shop thats mostly cold in the winter unless I'm out there working.

Also, do they produce a hum or any noise like most fluorescents?

The Feit are instant-on no matter the temperature and no hum at all that I've noticed.

I had the Felt as undercabinet light in the kitchen for 3 yrs now, on 20 hrs/day. Still going strong. Paid $44 at HD. Pleasant colour, slim design, right brightness. I have it hardwired.
At this price will pick one as backup.
