Used on two different smart dimmers. One is a Teckin dimmer that seems to no longer be available. The other is this one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B079775ZZ ... asin_title

Assuming the brand is still available and the color matches in this lot/batch... they could have changed the LED vendor which is not uncommon.Javeman wrote: ↑ I feel like if one dies pretty quickly, they're about as easy to replace as a bulb so no big deal. Just pulls down, unplug, plug new one in and push back into ceiling. Unless the driver box dies and then you have to kill the breaker and remove the box and install a new one. A bit more work but still not a big deal in my opinion.

Same could happen if you use any traditional pot light housing with interchangeable bulbs. Ultimately, any LED bulb you buy (integrated or not) you run into the same risk.

In my experience the main offender for the buzzing is forward phase dimmers. So you should look for the dimmers that do reverse phase dimming or can be programmed either way.

True. But pretty much anyone knows how to change bulbs.. but you will admit it's a lot more work changing the fixture.. not to mention the potential for drywall getting damaged.bst wrote: ↑ Same could happen if you use any traditional pot light housing with interchangeable bulbs.

For example, I had some LED PAR20 bulbs from Luminus 90+ CRI which is no longer at my local Costco. Even then, the LED emitter may change or even with the same emitter different BIN/tint may be used.

It's not really more work though. It just pulls down from the ceiling (held in by springs) and you unplug the connector. Pop in a new one. In many ways easier than changing a bulb where you have to remove some cover before you can get to the bulb.TLSRULZ wrote: ↑ True.

Also avoid Luminus and Artika... after numerious returns of those .. I realized you have to be selective of what you buy at Costco.
