Default Factory Direct Lighting?

Anyone have any experience with buying fixtures from the above company in Ontario? Fixtures have a 5 year warranty, but just wondering about your experience with delivery, any other issues ( good or bad ) and also quality of the light? Thx in advance.

Since the .ca web addy was just registered a week ago, I'm doubting many people do.

The website says "Manufacturer now in Ontario", which doesn't mean "made in ontario", so that's slick way of saying imported. Their physical address is the exact same as an older company, Eprom.com, who seem to be importers of all sorts of goods on their website, including these same LED fixtures. Their website has the same look and feel as factorydirect. Eprom's listed owner is Ken Ling.

Long Distance Factory Direct, I'd say.

I find most warranties beyond 1yr are bogus.......try to get someone to help you out in year 3 or 4. Stick with a reputable brand since 85% of this stuff is all coming out of China.
