Cree LEDs are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The EC10 uses a smooth reflector. Unlike the textured surface of an orange peel reflector, a smooth reflector has a polished, mirror-like surface. The AR coating of the lens helps to mitigate these reflections by altering the refractive index of the lens surface.

Mechanical switches often offer tactile feedback, allowing users to feel a distinct click or resistance when the switch is pressed. The rear switch of EC10 is typically operated with the thumb or finger, making it easily accessible and convenient to use.
