Attractive fixture, tight installation clearance
I installed this LED (40w equivalent) fixture in my clothes closet, as a new installation (not a recessed fixture retrofit).

The fixture seemed to get a little brighter the longer it was lit (not sure if this is my imagination, or based in fact). Also, the assembly requires that there be sufficient space to install inside a box or existing recessed light fixture (in the case of a retrofit). The 4” old work box that I used was rather shallow, and so I found it challenging to get the fixture mechanical mounted inside of the box. If you’re installing in a conventional box (not a recessed light retrofit), than I would suggest using a deep box.
My closet ceiling is nearly 9’ tall, so having an LED fixture where the bulb is expected to last many times longer than a conventional bulb, is a definite plus in terms of ease of maintenance, and since this fixture sits flush with the surface of the ceiling, it should minimize the safety hazard of a bare bulb or other protruding glass fixture typically found in closet applications.
Overall, this is a good product, and depending on your application it could be a great investment.
