Rated 5 out of 5Â by MJTR Too good to be TRUE!
I see something and think this looks like it would be a nice upgrade. Usually it is something that is too good to be true. This is NOT one of those times. The recessed lights in my living room look AMAZING! I have several others that I think I will upgrade as well. For the living room I purchased 8 and that was the best $200 I have spent in a long time. My kids all want to upgrade theirs now. That is just for the look of them, now for the light they put out, AMAZING! They are dimmable also. All 8 took 15 minutes to install. If there was a 10 I would give it to this product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Eric Eliminate's drafts through recessed can and saves energy
We recently bought a house which had four recessed lighting fixture in the living room. We found that on cold days, we had major drafts coming through them, since there was no insulation between the joists which caused us to lose lots of heat. We heard these were air tight with their integrated trim and gasket under the trip. We tried getting the creeâs but they require a 6 inch can and our are 5.5 inches so these fit. They are so low profile you donât even need a recessed can. If you are installing new, you can simply use junction boxes. How awesome is that? Installation was a breeze. Not only are we saving on electric, we are saving on heat as well by preventing drafts. Plus these even look better with their integrated trim. We plan to get 4 more for our kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Webjester One of the best values in LED lighting
I purchased 6 of these units for use with HALO 6" recessed housings (Air-tight) and am very impressed with the quality. I used a Lutron dimmer comparable with LED's and these things range from very dim to stupid bright with no buzzing or annoying hum.
Speaking of buzzing: One out of the 6 made a really loud humming/buzzing noise when on. I promptly exchanged it at the Home Depot and the replacement is just as quiet as the other 5.
As far as coloration is concerned, this product has a CRI of 90 which is quite good when compared with the similar (warm white, 6") HALO product which has a CRI of 80 and costs $15 more per unit.
Extremely pleased with this product.
+ High CRI for the price point
+ Compatible with 5 and 6 inch recessed housings
+ Works well with comparable dimmers for a wide range of brightness
+ Gets very bright at full voltage
+ Comes with adaptor for standard bulb
- Some may buzz (if they do, exchange them for another unit)
- You may save a lot of money when buying these over the HALO brand... This could lead to more money in your pocket which could be used for buying beer and encouraging alcoholism.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tech LED light and beautiful trim
I love the look of these. They seem to almost disappear into the ceiling. Very low profile and sleek look. The light and the trim are all one piece so there is no more gap between the bulb and the can. This unit replaces the cheap trim that the previous owners had on the can. These were same price as purchasing CFL so it's a no-brainer. LED is also dimmable. I am excited to try these in a normal light box when finishing my basement. Basically "fake-a-can" since this unit is the trim and light in one, as explained in the instructions.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by lewisjax extremely disappointing
I bought 7 of these lights for my kitchen over a period of a few months. At first - I was extremely excited and happy with the lights. They brightened my kitchen and really knocked a few bucks out of the electric bill.... unfortunately about 8 months after i installed them each light began slipping and falling creating gap near the ceiling. I keep pushing them up, but the continue to fall after a week or two. It appears that the internal construction is somewhat heavy with the metal and extra plastic box.
LED lights are great, save energy and provide good quality light. Just be weary of these lights... it appears the metal inside is a bit too heavy for the long term.
I went to a local store to ask about returning since these have a 3 year warranty... they said the warranty did not apply in this case because the light did not stop working...
good light - just be wary that you may have problems later in the product life. Over time the springs may start to fatigue.
