Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spotty Good looking and easy to install
Pros: Easy to install in commercial electric 6" housing. The trim looks nice. It puts out a lot of light.
Cons (sortof): The bulb doesn't dim down very low (at least with my dimmer Cooper LED dimmer) and it has a very bright center that is hard to look at when it is full on.
Other: I also tried the ecosmart with white trim and i liked that bulb better. It dims down a lot lower and has more diffused light (which is bettter for general lighting). I would say both bulbs put out an impressive amount of light.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cantwin4losin Light color (frequency) not consistent
Pro's: Super easy install; looks good; dimmable.
Con's: Light is different color on all 3 units purchased; can't dim them very much before they go off. (Leviton dimmer)
I installed 3 of these last week. 2 were new remodel installs close to each other over the kitchen sink (requiring new cans), and one was to replace an incandescent bulb in an existing 6" can. There were 2 on display in the store (lit up); one brushed nickel and one white. I noticed that the white one had much harsher light (very stark white) and the nickel one had softer, slightly yellower light. (more like an incandescent)
According to the box, the light frequency (color) was the same for both models. I assumed that the brushed nickel softened the light a bit so I bought those. When I powered up the 2 over the sink it was blatantly obvious that the color was very different and it looked odd having 2 identical lights, side by side, with different color output. Obvious mismatch. I installed the third and the color was different again. I chose the two most similar ones and put them together over the sink. It looks better now but I still see the difference. The one stand alone over the counter is "stark" white and I am not happy with the look.
Buyer beware: even though the box shows that they're all the same color light output, THEY ARE NOT! Like the other reviewer of this product I would definitely consider the ECO product as that definitely puts out a yellower, more incandescent like color. Think before you buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cvap Under 15 watts for 65 watts of light
LED is getting more popular as prices come down. No reason not to use them now. This fixture will fit in a 5" can but the trim will cover up to a 6" can.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homemaker Beautiful, work great
Wonderful light, attractive fixture. Instant on, do not need to wait for lights to "brighten" after flip switch on. Goes from moderate light to very bright on dimmer switch. At times wish it could be dimmed a bit more, but only very occasionally. Beautiful, classy appearance of fixtures. Love them!
