Hi Hoppy,

I agree; two thing impressed me most about these LED lamp arrays. The first was the PAR values and the uniformity of the output. The second was the simplicity of the design for installations and retrofits. I agree, it is a quality LED retrofit kit for a very reasonable price....I was amazed when I saw the final production models.

If I have an opportunity I will get you some readings on the 15 watt and 26 watt units as well.
