The Halco ProLED series is among the best available, and has been winning awards longer than most companies have been making LED bulbs. The Halco ProLED PAR38 won the prestigious Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) 2011 Product of the Year Award
and the PAR30 won the 2010 Product of the Year Award
. High flux (brightness), great color, superb dimming performance and terrific value.

All Electronic Low Voltage dimmers tested were compatible with this bulb, performing at around 1%/10% (measured/perceived). Additionally this bulb works very well on a wide selection of Magnetic Low Voltage dimmers, specifically: Leviton Sureslide (6613-PL), Lutron Diva (DVLV-603P), Lutron Skylark (SLV-603P), and Lutron Ariadni (AYLV-603P), all performing at around 1%/11%. Nova T (NTLV-400VA), Illumatech (IPM06-1), Lutron Radio RA2 (RRD-10ND), WattStopper Paddle (PDMLV-703), WattStopper Slide (SDMLV-603) MLV dimmers, and Lutron Radio RA2 (RRD-6NA) Phase Adaptive dimmers are also compatible, but we do not sell them. With the LED/CFL dimmers, you may experience a delay of 1 second or more from the moment the dimmer is switched on to when the light comes on. With the Phase Adaptive, Electronic and Magnetic Low Voltage dimmers, you may experience the common "pop-on" effect where the bulb will not turn back on below a certain level. This is an issue that we found across all dimmers. It is a characteristic of the bulb and not due to dimmer compatibility.
