I only installed the velux ones, but yea, they are great. You can buy the light kit for it, so that you can turn on the lights at night. You actually get the glow of the moon at night too. I love them, i have 3 down my hallway. Before it used to be dark, and you always needed to turn on the lights. Now I only turn on the lights at night only. Love it.
Does anyone make one that is designed for a north roof pitch? Anything is an improvement over the cave this bathroom is, but any with angled reflector to catch southern sun?
Get yourself the flex duct one, and you can turn the bezel inside to whichever exposure you want. You will understand once you get it. Or go to velux and find the installation instructions, they have pictures of what I'm talking about.
