Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fire House Use We are using these in both a drywall ceiling we are installing and drop ceiling as well in our old firehouse to update it a little and they are easy to install,good price and work well. Worth the money! April 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price, great can light. Bought 4 of the Commercial Electric 6" can lights for our living room (new addition). they seat nicely between 8" floor joists with about 1/4" gap headroom at the subfloor above. The same brand white baffle I purchased to test out just one light fixture worked out nicely and finishes the look of the fixture. I'll pick up 3 more of those to finish off the others. The pigtail connectors inside the electrical box on these lights are a breeze. just remember to buy a pack of those romex to metal box tightener rings. I forget what they are actually called, but you do not want that line coming in to rub on the razor sharp metal enclosure. secure it nicely. So, great affordable recessed lighting, grab a nice warm glow 10.5 Philips dimmable and there you have a great light. March 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome recess lights We own an Electrical company and have installed many types of recess lights. I have installed over 100 of these lights and have not have any problems with them. Commercial Electric makes an awesome product. Thanks March 11, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install - Great Price Got the contractor pack of 6. great value for the money. The quick connect plugs are very easy to use. 14 guage wire pops in easy, 12 guage takes a bit more push, but with pliers to help, its easy. 3 slots available in each plug The other best thing is the electric box already has 4 metal self securing tabs that hold your NM wire so you dont need to install any sleeves.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Has a weird smell when lit The fixture installed quite easily and they look alright. The only thing I found that made me give it 3 stars is that when the lights are on for about an hour you get a smell from the cans that resemble burning plastic and I don't have any trim installed on the cans yet. This smell is coming from the cans. I hope it is only temporary, but I have had them installed for a week now and no matter what wattage of bulb I am using it still has that smell. I am using 40 watt in two of the cans and a 100 watt in one can. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love these lights These lights look great. The price is even better. Not very expensive but has a great look to them. April 15, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible to install First off, I had to remove the tracks and shorten them, which was quite a difficult job as they didn't want to fit back together well afterwards. Once I was done, I tried to fasten the fixture in place and rather than the nails break loose from the supports they were wedged into, the supports completely twisted around. Electrically it looks good, but I would only use in perfect conditions. June 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beautiful light These were a beautiful addition to our home. My husband Bill, who is practically blind (good thing for me, ive gained some weight over the years) can see a lot better because of the better. The quality of light these puppies put out is just awesome. Now, if i could only install something to shut his mouth up, my life would be better. JK! They were also easy to install. July 12, 2013
