Rated 4 out of 5Â by DIYDad Great Price but trim coverage could be improved
Great price, and easy to install, both were important because I installed many of them. The trim allows you to see more of the inside of the housing than I like, but for the price that's not that big of a deal.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JonC amazingly easy to install
very easy to install and handle. It is a little flimsy, but that's OK because once its up you shouldn't have to touch it again. I installed 10 of these in about an hour and a half in the basement.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nando Can OK -- Trim Cheap
This was my first job installing recessed lighting into my own home and I learned a few things along the way. I initially thought the price was fantastic because it included trim. However, I was sorely disappointed with the trim because it was 1) plastic and 2) didn't hide the metal can.
I am using dimmable CFLs in these lights and they do not hide the metal at all, which makes it look terrible in my opinion. I had to purchase separate metal trims that were the fully covered cone type ($8/each).
Therefore, I would opt for the other CE contractor 6-pack (~$34/6 cans) that just includes the IC cans and purchase the trim separately. Both can be purchased individually, of course, if you don't need a 6-pack.
I installed these in my home w/o any major problems. I was working up in the attic, so it was easy to nail these into the studs. Still need to work on the electrical installation, but that doesn't look too difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lowrider Easy product to work with. Exact fit to ceiling joists. Connectors inside work box are very easy to work with.
Decent product for price in the combo pack. No need to purchase separate inserts or covers. Made in China but again, the price is right.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by TonyZ Trim not as advertised
Be careful with these!! The trim that comes with the pack does not fit the regular R30 Flood Lights. The Opening in the base of the trim is so large, that with an R30 Bulb installed you can still see the metal interior of the fixture. Still a pretty good deal but if you want it to look nice you will end up needing to use the R40 Bulbs which are much more expensive or purchasing separate trim for each light you install!!!
