The manufacturer date on these was 9/15 on the left and 7/15 on the right. These are both the same model number on the box - RL560WH-R. Call me dense... is this a newer redesigned version on the left which is missing that black cylinder on top?
They make two series of that model. If you look on the module for the model number there should be 4 more digits to it. The one one the left is a 600 series and carries a 68xx or 69xx number. It produces 600 plus lumens.
The one on the right is a 900 series producing up to 1100 lumens. It will have a 98xx or 99xx number.
The XX number is the first 2 digits of the color temp, 27 would be 2700k, 30 would be 3000k,etc.
You definately want to take one back and get a match to the second. Personally, I would keep and match the 900 series.
Thanks for the reply. Both of these had nearly identical specs on the back. 600 lumen... one used like two watts less for a few more lumen. Seemed one was a more efficient model - that being the newer production date.
I ended up going back to HD and picking up four each of CREE, Commercial Lighting and Philips 2700k 6" LEDs. The Philips seemed the best of the bunch for a warm light for my son's room. 3k was more suited for my kitchen than a bedroom IMO.
