Philips, whose products have always been excellent, also guarantees the quality of the low-end circulation-grade downlights produced.

Royal Philips of the Netherlands holds a dominant position in the industry of lighting. Signify, the company that owns the “Philips”, is the largest lighting company in the world.

Philips home decoration downlights start at 20-30 yuan/piece. Lamps in this price range are mainly targeted at mass sales. The brand of downlights usually have basic styles and simple appearances. Due to cost constraints, they do not have very sophisticated optical designs. If the light source quality is up to standard and the lamp body is made of solid materials, then it is worth the money.


Panasonic downlights make up the majority of entry-level models. The PBT plastic Canfang series begins at 9 yuan/piece and the aluminum Yifang Series at 35 yuan/piece. The heat dissipation is excellent on both models, and their light source and workmanship are comparable with Philips. On a par with each other, it is worth mentioning the IP44 waterproof series. The light-emitting surfaces can stop water splashing and dripping. It is very suitable for use in kitchens and bathrooms. Among low-end and mid-end mass-market downlights, only Panasonic has them; the price is 25 yuan/piece. Initially, the outer shell of this downlight was made entirely out of plastic due to its cost.

NVC’s widest selection of downlights is available at the low to mid-price range.


NVC and Opple both have a leading position in the local lighting market. Their home decoration products follow the route of catching up with trends, pursuing popular models, and lowering prices based on iterations of the original versions. According to the “500 Most Valuable Brands” analysis report released by the World Brand Laboratory in 2021, NVC once again won the championship with a brand value of 43.687 billion yuan. This is the tenth consecutive year.

NVC’s experience in the field of home photography is not as extensive as Opple. After 2015, the company made a major move into home furnishings and launched e-commerce channels. On Double 11 in 2020, NVC won the sales championship of lighting fixtures on the four major platforms of Tmall,, Suning, and Vipshop, and has become an e-commerce powerhouse on par with Opple.

Opple is not as unique as NVC’s Downlight products.

Why Buy Branded Downlights?

I think that this is a matter in which I have a voice. I have been dealing with lighting fixtures for more than ten years and have a relatively rational understanding of lighting fixtures.

Recently, I have evaluated many downlights and spotlights, including the main models from mainstream brands such as Opple, NVC, FSL, Panasonic, Seaton, Philips, yeelight, West Rail, and Qiyi. Of course, there are also so-called Internet celebrity brands and miscellaneous brands on the Internet, let’s say hundreds of them at least.

First, let’s talk about the major differences between the mainstream brand and other brands of downlights.

When comparing a brand with another brand of the same price range, it will lose in all aspects, including appearance.

The brand failed to compare brightness at the same power level.

In terms of core accessories and craftsmanship, the brand wins.

What does this mean? Listen up.

Weight and feel:

The brand’s lamps are focused on the right thing. The brand doesn’t hesitate to use materials; it just finds excess materials meaningless. X-brand lamps rely on their appearance to attract attention. This is the commonest way. These tricks can be played in front of novices, but they rely on piles of materials. The days of dominating the market have long passed.

High brightness

We will choose the brighter lamps if the power is equal. Anyway, there is no increase in price for brightening, and high brightness and energy saving are also one of the most commonly used methods by merchants.

We only know that, but don’t understand why. The high-brightness of the lamps is at the cost of an accelerated light decay. The lamps of the brand you purchased this year are still the same after three years. Lamps that pursue high brightness may lose their light after two years.

Friends who are paying attention should have discovered that the luminous efficiency of mainstream brand downlights is basically maintained at 70-80lm/w, while many Internet celebrity brands have achieved more than 100lm/W.

The core accessories and processing:

When I was writing my answer, I didn’t have my work phone with me, and there was no detailed display of the lamps, but the gap in internal craftsmanship was so big that it was jaw-dropping.

Craftsmanship is just as important as good accessories in making a great lamp. The picture below shows the removal of the driving power supply of the The brand of downlights .

This way you can clearly see that big brands are unambiguous on core components.

It’s also worth noting that when you use downlights to light your home there is no reason to intentionally pursue deep anti glare because the beam angles of deep anti glare downlights are relatively small. It needs to be used in conjunction with other basic light sources, otherwise it will be obvious that the ground is bright and the sky is dark, and the light experience in the house will be very poor, yes, very poor.

Mostly 50-70deg. The light spot that extends from the ceiling down to the floor in a commercial building of about 2.7M height is similar to this.

The distance between the walls of the downlight example in the picture above is 1M.

The most common problem with this type of downlight is “darkness in the sky”. When using basic lighting, you should be cautious if the ceiling doesn’t have enough fill-light.

How to purchase downlights

The more expensive downlights are better, but is this really true? Yes, it is true.

But we may have overlooked an important question, is it really useful?

Even though Lambo’s performance is amazing, it still has a gap with Wuling Hongguang.

Don’t waste your money. Downlights worth tens of yuan are completely sufficient for home lighting.

The most basic configuration:

  1. No video flash (basically as standard).
  2. Generally, CRI Ra>80, R9>0
  3. Color tolerance less than 7SDCM
  4. RG/Rf80-100 range
  5. Service life. The service life of downlights of compliant brands will basically be 5 years +

This standard can be met by familiar brands. Even brands such as Panasonic and Philips have starting prices of around 10 yuan.
