Rated 5 out of 5 Used with the "correct" dimmer, they are great!
I recently installed these in (2) rooms I just renovated in my home, like others I ran into the humming issue while using dimmers.
I tried using all the suggested dimmers with no success, buying $180 in dimmers to try all the options at the local store. I settled on hours of research finally finding one suggestion through some review of the fixture.
The model that does work with with this fixture without humming on any range of illumination level is the Lutron DVELV-300PH-WH ($74.99 a piece)Yikes. I know this model to work on currently (2) separate rooms with (4) lights a piece.
With the exception of having to use a 75 dollar dimmer, hours of research, I am completely satisfied with these

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ArminRussi Great Light for low wood panel ceiling
I remodeled the basement and used 26 of this lights. That's a lot of money up front. I staggered them every 6 feet or so.
They work great. I did not use a dimmer. I like the low energy use. One of them quit after about a month of use. I tried to contact the manufacturer but they did not respond. I was able to get a replacement from H.D. I think this is the way to go in the future. Just a 4" can on the ceiling. I hope they get cheaper in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by r5portals Needed as alternative to can lights, but not ready yet.
I am an installing contractor, disappointed that T91 lights were suddenly discontinued, to be replaced by T67. If the move were good for consumers, I would say so. I am disappointed with the 2700Â°K color temperature of the T67, finding it yellows my paint colors. I wish the choice had been 3000Â°K as in T91, or that CREE might have applied a mix of phosphors to give a more-full light spectrum.
My strongest disappointment with the T67s I have tried, is in an irksome hum of the luminaire while powered through dimmers. I find the same hum with two dimmers I have tried so far, a Cooper Wiring Devices D106P, and a Home Depot store-recommended Lutron Maestro.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VinnyV13 Fits perfect in 4" Box, looks nice!
Electrician asked me to pick out a set of LED HiHats and he was planning to use Cans but was able to fit these in junction boxes which left a cleaner look in the attic. Instant on and great color. Used 2 for a 14 foot hallway and its perfect. One replaced a 2 bulb lighting fixture and fit in the existing box the other was put in an old work box, both look great. Used with a 2 way lighted switch as well and its fine.
Had a 3rd installed above the tub and linked to the exhaust fan, no dimming or problems noticed by sharing the switch for the exhaust fan.
A little expensive overall but nice to have alot of options plus to save on electric.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RJenkins Nice looking light
I purchased one of these to replace the 50 watt par20 halogen bulb above a shower and am delighted with the results.
It uses 1/4 the electricity and produces nearly 20% more light (660 vs 550 lumens) with a nice, broad spread. Color of the light is nice and cool and renders the color of the tile in the shower nicely.
Installed in an existing 5 inch can without issues - the package says that it will fit "many" 5 inch cans. I can't see it being a problem in any as the module is shallow and the retaining prongs are quite flexible.
This one was a little trickier to install than other LED modules I've used as it has a ground wire that needs to be clipped to the can housing that the others didn't have. Just an extra step - not technically challenging.
What is great about these is that they can be installed in a standard octagonal junction box - no need for a recessed can! Properly sealed, a J-box is a lot easier to insulate properly in an attic than a can. There is an included adapter plate for use with a square junction box as well.
My install did not include a dimmer. There is another review here that mentions a hum when used with a dimmer and I've read the same elsewhere. Hopefully, the manufacturer can fix this as it is otherwise an excellent product.
