Marexim Par 30 LED Reviews

Positive Reviews

Super bright High Quality LED Light.

Posted

Pros: No UV, little heat output, good lm/watt, great color rendering, dimmable, payback in less than 3 years

Cons: Initial cost of LED lights are hard to get over for some people.

LED lights are the best available lighting product on the market. They offer substantial energy savings and if you have any air-conditioning adding incandescent lighting is working against that by adding small heaters around your house. The Marexim line of lighting offers great lumen to watt ratios (compared to incandescent lights) and provides a lot of light. These lights have been running strong and are quality made. I've gotten cheap LED lights from China and they have already fallen apart. I've calculated the savings and these pay themselves back in less than 3 years and over the lifetime save an average of $1200 per bulb (at my current utility rate of: 33 cents / kWh).

Cons: Poor efficacy

I tracked down the specifications for this LED lamp and was disappointed to see 660 lumens / 22 watts, that's just 30 lumens/watt, I have LED lamps with three times this efficacy, and these days only buy LED lamps with at least 60 lumens / watt. No I don't own the Marexim PAR30 LED, I just felt it necessary to add this information, especially after seeing the previous review where one PRO was "high lm/watt". EDIT: Seems I was looking at out-of-date specifications, and mauichris was kind enough to direct me to more recent and hopefully more accurate specifications. So based on the 840 lumens / 19 watts I found there, that comes to around 44 lumens / watt, which is...

JUNK, NUISANCE, DO NOT BUY

Posted

Pros: NONE

Cons: multiple FAILURES after tiny numbers of hours

I bought 8 of the Marexim LED lamps for 2 reasons.  1 = energy efficiency.  2 = long life.   On #2, they've been a DISASTER.  I specifically chose them for a very high, difficult to access place in my house.  So high we need scaffolding to get up there to change the lamps.  Unfortunately, they've already been swapped out once (several had failed), and now they've failed again.  I'd bet none of them had more than 100 hours on it.   What a NUISANCE.  I feel sorry for the dealer who sold them to me and has to come out here with scaffolding to make good on the warranty and his own business reputation.  He's been great, but the lamps SUCK!  Should have stuck with halogen.  Would have lasted...
