I have been looking for decent LED outside lights for probably 5 years. LED is certainly gaining acceptance inside your house, but it's even more practical outside your house.

How good are these lights?

With a 50,000 hour lamp life, you can leave the lights on 10 hours a day every day for 13.7 years...so you will probably never change a light again.

At 32 Watts, they project over 1,000 lumens or almost double a 75 watt bulb at 615 lumens. In other words, the outside of your house will be brighter with less than half the wattage. BTW, Lumens is a measure of total visible light. Wattage measures the rate of energy consumption. It is misleading for bulbs, because only 10% of the energy consumed by an incandescent bulb is light with 90% emitted as heat.

They are also fully dimmable, Dark Sky friendly (for California), with solid aluminum construction to weather the outside and are fairly priced.

As I said in the beginning, these lights are finally very worthwhile products.

I also think this illustrates almost how outdated incandescent lighting is with only 10% efficiency and a 750 hour to 2000 hour lifespan. Now with LED technology finally improving, you will save energy, time and money not replacing bulbs.
