They offer multiple functions
They are not just mirrors, they are also a source of light. Once you install any of these mirrors, you may not need any other light in your bathroom. Apart from that, they also serve as a form of decoration as they give your home a facelift.

The mirrors are energy efficient
They are more energy efficient than most kinds of lighting. In fact, they are about 300 percent more efficient than fluorescent tubes and bulbs and they are also about 1000 percent more efficient than incandescent bulbs. They may not lead to a drastic drop in your monthly electricity bill but they will save you a large sum of money over a long time.

These mirrors are completely free from mercury and toxins. They do not also radiate heat. This is why a lot of home builders now demand this kind of mirrors.
They are durable
They are very durable and they are made of very high quality glass. This implies that they can last for years. These products are still pretty new so their low quality replicas are yet to hit the market. This means that all the mirrors that are available are quality.
In fact, they are so durable that you may not have to replace them or their bulbs for years even if you use your backlit mirror for several thousands of hours. So, they will save you a lot of money that you would have used to replace your normal bathroom light.
They are fog resistant

These mirrors have been designed not to fog up. They have certain anti-fog characteristics that prevent them from fogging up.
