Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gig0l0J0e Same performance with no plastic bubble.
Despite being 1400sq', single story, with an abundance of windows, the light brown walls ate all the light coming into our home, making it dark and depressing even in the summer. So, when the time came to re-roof, we installed 7 Velux skylights all together. 2 electric 4646's, 1 fixed 3046, and 4 tubes.
Two of the tubes would be visible from the street, and I am not fond of the appearance of the plastic dome. Luckily I discovered the TLR low-profile unit while planning the project. Another reason for choosing the TLR was the pitch of our roof was such that a TMR, which our roofer recommended over the TGR for our roof, would have sat askew/out of level. We did go with the TGR instead of the TMR for the domed units after meeting with the Velux rep, but that's a different story.
****Bottom line: The Velux Sun Tunnel skylights bring in much more light than we were expecting (after seeing our neighbor's new tubular skylight), and there is no discernible difference between the amount of light coming in through the two Sun Tunnel's with the plastic dome, and the two with the flat glass termination. The finished appearance is discreet and attractive, and was worth the extra hundred dollars.
In fact, though I love the two enormous venting skylights in our living area, in hindsight I may have opted instead for 4 TLR tubes, which would have resulted in as much and possibly more light, less cost, and less additional load in heating and A/C.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pusherdan Outstanding Green Answer.
We needed to have an old roof replaced and knocked around the idea if some kind of green source of light. I called Ken Clover whom I have known for several years, and he showed us the SunTunnel lights. They were exactly what we needed in this mid century ranch home. We walked around for weeks trying to turn the light switch off.
The product is outstanding and so is the service from Ken and his son Dillion.
They are both straight up guys and tell it as it is. No surprises just a great product at a fair price. I can't speak more highly of them

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy Love my sun tunnels!
We had sun tunnels installed in both of our windowless bathrooms. What a difference! Really like how the sun tunnels brighten the room and the nice soft light they provide. Daylight Solutions staff was very helpful. Discussed with us the best locations for the tunnels and did a great job of installation and cleanup.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tarun Jindal Trouble free operation as day one
We bought over house 3 years ago and Master Bathroom had no window. Didn't like the idea of having artificial lights on during day time. We tested few products and zeroed on Tubular sunlight from Velux. We went for 14 inch one . After 3 years it still works as new. No issues with intensity of light or any condensation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blummer This is an excellent sun tunnel, that doesn't look like a "bubble"
This sun tunnel provides excellent light, is well built and looks great on the roof. Since it is flat glass, it blends in nicely on the roof, instead of looking like a bubble up there. Great on a visible side of the roof.
