I noticed a significant decrease in my electric bill after the install when compared with the previous mercury vapor fixtures that we replaced. Additionally the flourex light is brilliantly white and much easier to see then the previous orange hue the older fixures put out.
Plastic and inexpensive means that they are not heavy duty. They are functional lights, but one can expect to replace these more frequently then a heavy-duty fixture. I have had to replace two of mine within a year.
The Bottom Line:
When you have to buy a large quantity of fixtures and are on a limited budget, these cannot be beat. I was able to purchase ten fixtures for less then the price of one commercial fixture. That being said, if one or two goes bad or is vandalized, it still is cheaper then one expensive commercial-grade fixture. If you have an issue with my economics and are looking for only one light fixture that lasts for ten years or so, this may not be it. On the other hand, if you want a cheap light that saves on electric and looks just as good as the expensive ones, this Lights of America fixture may meet your needs.
Compared to an alternate maker, (Lithonia Lighting, OWP42F) Lights of America has a proven record in an ordinary household application. Compared to Lithonia OWP42F, our fingers are crossed that LoA 9042 will outlast the disappointing three year fixture failure of a Lithonia OWP42F.
Faced with increased costs, and suspect China quality, the home owner has enough to contend with. A porch lamp is one thing you shouldn't have to worry about. (Both lamps were installed by professional electricians.)
We have good trust in LoA based on experience. The 9042 42W LoA is incredible in light output. Clear blue white light reaches some 30 yards with a beam angle of 180 degrees. Light output seems almost too good to be true. Ensuring an impression of security and quality, hopefully the 9042 will also match previous positive performance of other LoA lamps.
One negative, LoA 9042 case quality doesn't create an impression of durability as the plastics have a thin and cheapish feel. Compared to the Lithonia OWP42F, which offered a better and more durable first impression, LoA light output is superior.
Amazon's partner, A-Z Lighting Supply, California, provided excellent delivery and a clean in new condition packaging.
Some have also mentioned replacement bulb cost. As a point of reference, while seemingly more expensive, our experience with LoA bulbs last nearly four and five years. Bulb cost is offset by burn time longevity but the nagging suspicion that fixtures may have been cheapened to the point where consideration of returning to the days of A-Bulb jelly jars as they cost nothing and last forever has been entertained. File under the joys of home ownership.
Thanks again Amazon, great price and great delivery from A-Z Lighting.
