Also, users indicate that the percentage of marriage is quite low. And if, nevertheless, the lamp purchased did not work the declared warranty period, then it can be replaced without any difficulties at the point of sale that served the person.
Brand Lighting Benefits
The manufacturer in the post-Soviet territory has been represented for a long time, which in itself is a plus. Since this indicates success and that the company is not a one-day company, of which there are many in China.
Well, the main advantage in the eyes of many buyers is the low cost of all products. Although this indicator does not always indicate quality, but not in this case. Since the lamps really serve users for a long time.
In addition, Feron has the following advantages:
- Wide choose - In total, the catalog has about 4 thousand items.
- Modern technology used - which allows you to produce economical and functional products.

And also the buyer will be able to choose lamps of all possible form factors today, that is, they can be traditional, spherical, round, in the shape of a candle, quite miniature, etc.
The lighting color is in the range of 2300-7000 K, and the power starts from 1 Watt, which allows us to solve various problems. More information about the color temperature of LED lamps and their power can be found in this stuff. As LEDs, the modern SMD format is increasingly being used, which increases economy, durability.
If necessary, select dimmable lamp necessary power, and its functionality and quality are not inferior to conventional products. Socles come in all formats used today.
Overview of the main disadvantages
Each buyer needs to be prepared for the fact that most models of Feron lamps do not meet the basic declared characteristics, and significantly.
For example, often power and brightness are a quarter less than indicated on the box and base. It’s easy to get around any such marketing move - you need to purchase a more powerful model, but you will have to pay more.
The color rendering index also complies with the standards for only part of the product. What is an unpleasant surprise - the transmitted color may differ significantly from the expected result.
In some cases, the accuracy of this parameter does not exceed 75 units. This means that not all colors of illuminated objects will be transmitted correctly. And although the indicated index corresponds to the “good” mark, still lamps with such a characteristic should not be used at home.
In addition, some representatives of the Feron product line may throb, which is considered one of the main shortcomings in the field of lighting.
This phenomenon can significantly affect people's health, namely:
- eyes get tired much faster;
- irritability appears;
- various degrees of headaches;
- partial loss of performance.
These negative points are caused by an insufficiently stable electric current, which LED lamp equipment cannot stabilize to the required parameters. That is, the ripple additionally indicates the mediocre quality of individual Feron products.
And yet this drawback is the cause of blinking when the switch is equipped with a backlight. Moreover, this is a common drawback.
As a result, a person will have to immediately change the lamp purchased to another model or upgrade it, replacing the driver or smoothing capacitor with a new one. Although such procedures are not financially burdensome and are carried out expeditiously, who will please them?
For the sake of objectivity, you should know that ripple is found only in individual models. But still there is no guarantee that she will not fall for a choice.
For example, LB-92 lamps and almost its analogue LB-91 are in traditional demand. At the same time, the first practically corresponds to the declared characteristics, and in addition, it is characterized by durability, lack of ripple.
But the second is significantly inferior to her, and in all respects. But to distinguish them to an outsider is difficult, since the marking is similar, and outwardly both varieties are generally identical.
This leads to the conclusion that the choice of LED lamps should be approached competently, with certain knowledge. And when buying, be sure to check them for lack of ripple, which is easy to do without even having special equipment.
And this is another drawback, since the products of leading companies, for example, the Dutch Philips, with such difficulties do not have to buy. Because it is characterized by an extremely low percentage of rejects, stability of characteristics, but also costs more.
