We installed two of their lights and have been very happy with the results and the performance of the lights.
I second that. I also replaced several of my incandescent fixtures with the Alpenglow fluorescent fixtures for a very reasonable cost. Then have both low and high settings, and you can get on with a red bulb for night sailing as well. Very good for the price.
I agree that LED use less juice and have come a long way in the last 2 years (I have 4 LED fixtures as well), but they are not very good for "room" coverage like that shown in the photo, and are still pretty steep in price for what you get.
