Thanks for the suggestion in the ufo style lights. Two of the six showed up today and I couldn’t wait to try them out. Plenty of light. My ceiling is 12’ so I went with 150W.

Cool thing about the UFO lights that the light salesman divulged to me - and I don't know if this is the case with all of them - but the wattage/output for all the different light models they sell is simply differences in dipswitch settings on the same light. In other words, all the lights (100w/150w/200w/etc.) are all the same light assembly, just set different from the factory. Unscrew the small metal cover on the housing, adjust the switches and bam! - you now have 200w lights! Kinda sneaky IMO, because they charge more for the higher output (settings), but whatever...

But, if in the future you wish that you had bought 200w lights, you did!
