The light output of the 'bullet' style fixtures is impressive. Good colour rendition and excellent intensity in a small variety of beam spreads.

However. These are sealed, integrated LED fixtures. They are not field servicable which gives me a lot of concern. Sure they might last 10-15 years, but what then? You would have to rip out the fixture, discard it, and sell a whole new fixture in it's place! This is wasteful and a very hard sell.

Also, the knuckle & stem assembly on the fixtures is really poorly designed and constructed. They use a nylong ball inside a socket and this is held in aim by a metal set screw. I guarantee you they will not hold their aim for very long.

Finally, glare control is an issue. They do offer an accessory eyebrow that shield some of the glare, but not all from all angles. The fixtures are also rather ugly in my opinion.

Kichler has put function ahead of form in this line of fixtures... pretty typical of Kichler really.

There are many brands of LED lights available in market and most of them are really good. And if you are also looking for LED lights I would recommend you to search it online for better suggestions.
