Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spaceghost Aesthetically Solid, Performance Solid, Great Price
I was a little apprehensive picking up this product after seeing TONS of choices on modern lighting sites that went for several times this price, but building a house and being on a tight budget I figured I could pick it up and if I dont like it, I will swap it in a few years.
I had this for 30 days now and I absolutely love these lights. they look very elegant and modern. They do a nice job blending their design into the design of my kitchen. They are very bright and the never heat up!
It has been a solid purchase and I am very happy with it. My electrician installed it so I cannot give it a true Ease of Installation rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gyno Great lights!
Am remodeling a 50 yr-old home. Replaced kitchen ceiling, put 8 of these lights and the light is spread very nicely uniformly throughout. The gimbal allows some aiming of the light but only in one dimension, e.g. 90 and 270 degrees. The dimension depends on the orientation of the can because the trim fits into fixed tabs within the can. It would be nice to have a way to rotate the trim to at least some degree such that it is not restricted to only one dimension. That said, I look forward to not having to change light bulbs.

Lights are bright and work great in a dimmer, they match other lights I had. They were quite expensive compared to other LED conversion kits

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Philm35 Nice replacement for older "eyeball" style gimbal lights
A nice replacement for the old-style gimbal lights. No glare from exposed bulbs. They're bright, turn on in about 1 second and put out a wide, even field. They dim nicely when used with an LED-appropriate dimmer.
My only complaint is, the packaging says they are "cool white", meaning (at least with other LED's that I've purchased) that they should have the same color temperature as incandescent bulbs. These lamps are much bluer… closer to daylight color temperature The color does not match the other lighting we have in the room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer Not as straight forward as first thought
This light fitting as bought to replace the existing very old eyeball fittings we had in our bedroom. Of the 5 purchased, I have to return 1 as it has a irritating humming sound when used.
Fitted these into old cans which I assed to be approximately 5 inch which backfired when I found out they were 1/8 short of 5' making the installation a lot more complex. So make sure you have the moderns size equivalent diameter and that it has the same or similar U shaped brackets that the long springs get attached into, otherwise it will be a quite a struggle and re-engineering to make it work.
Overall happy with the product, light is a 3000 Kalvin color light which is a bit to bright for my taste in the bedroom and will choose 2700 instead in the other bedroom. This pivot able light only is available in 3000K.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wendell Careful of the fit!
These do not fit all 5" cans. Both the diameter and the attach mechanism prohibited me from installing. My fixtures actually measure 5" but were too small. There was very little information about this potential on the website. The 4" versions I purchased for other fixtures were great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gutterninja The installation of the recess can is important in order for the gimbal to align properly.
The only slight issue I had with the installation of this product was aligning the gimbal light to match the slope of our vault. The way our cans were installed hampered my ability to perfectly align the gimbal angle to the vault angle. I may be the only person who notices it. The bright white light of the LED bulb definitely lights up the reading area where they are installed. Overall I am pleased with the gimbal light.
