Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RoofmanCT Good light, but not perfect
I purchased six of these led modules to direct toward artwork. They've worked out great, but with one significant exception.
I should note that I had initially purchased similar Gimbal modules from another manufacturer. Due to their design, the top portion of the light beam was cut off by the light housing when it was aimed toward the wall. The result was a scalloped effect along the top of the wall, which made the ceilings look low. This was unacceptable, so I returned those lights. These modules do not have that problem at all. They turn 360 degrees, have unlimited adjustment capability, and fully illuminate the wall. The design is sleek and modern looking, and they work great. My only complaint is that because the inside of the module housing is white, they create a very bright reflection away from the direction the light is aimed. Since my lights are all aimed at walls, they are blinding when you stand in the center of the room. I contacted the manufacturer (Halo), but received a boiler plate "thank you, we will look into your issue" response. After some trial and error, I found a 3" wide roll of black "blackboard" tape at Michael's Crafts Store (flat black tape is very difficult to find!). I applied this tape to the inside of the light housings, and the problem is resolved! I actually think the fixtures look better with the black housing interiors, and they no longer blind you when you look up from the center of the room. I wish the Halo would manufacture the lights with flat black interiors to eliminate this problem.
Sooo....I do recommend these lights, but you should plan to spend an additional $7.99 for a roll of flat black tape to line the interior of the light housing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Giggles4God i had to buy 18 of these for our remodel project!
Installation was easy and they look great. took us only an hour to install all 18 lights. They are easy to angle across the room but I wish they had a few more tilt options instead of just front to back. They give great light but we put them on a dimmer as well.

We are converting over 50 recessed pot lights to LED this year and we've found Home Depot's pricing and shipping to be excellent.

Nice design, sleek looking, my hesitation is with installation. The light comes with 2 types of clips to retro-fit existing recessed can - but both are difficult. The end result is that the light does not sit flush with the ceiling - so I am using a little bit of caulking to hide the gap. I used thin blade screw drivers to push the clips in and still there was a lot of trouble of getting it to sit. Later on, I may consider replacing the entire above ceiling can, but that's if it really bothers me later. Otherwise, the lighting product itself is very good. It gives a different glow from the previous light, which was incandescent. It is very bright . It is mounted over the kitchen sink. Do want to watch out, if you change the clips, it has sharp edges.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich easy install
Simple install I refit a 20 year old eye ball that was a friction fit. The can had tabs that could be bent down to take the wire hangers. Connections were simple and looks good on the ceiling. This is in a first floor ceiling so I was not concerned with an air tight fit. This does not contain a gasket for an air tight fit on the ceiling if your can is not airtight.

We bought these at our local THD store to replace three 6" "eyeballs". They look so much better. With three fixtures, the low level adjustment on the new Lutron dimmer must be set above minimum or the lamps will dim completely. Note: This unit is available in three different color temperatures so watch which package you pick up.

We purchased this product to update the look of a light fixture above our fireplace. Our den has a cathedral ceiling and our brick fireplace extends to the ceiling. Previously there was an older fashion "eyeball" fixture there that washed light onto the brickwork. Now with our new fixture from Home Depot not only is the look updated with a flat recessed light fixture, we have the advantage of LED light. Brighter and less expensive to operate. Win, Win, Win.
