Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Looks good but what about that buzzing
The light looks good and was easy to install but why does it make a low buzzing noise? I'm using the Lutron Skylark LED dimmer switch also purchased at Home Depot. Other then the buzzing, I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PrototypeFitness So Easy I can Do It
I do not have any electrical experience whatsoever but the kits were super easy to install. I recently did a commercial tenant build out and needed to save a few bucks. I decided to do that with purchasing these kits myself as well as installing them myself. After reading the directions a couple times just to make sure I knew what I was getting into, I attempted the first light. The first complete install took me about 15 minutes. To some that is a lifetime for something so simple but I was happy with it and how amazing they turned out. In the end I installed 13 lights and by the end each one only took 5 minutes maybe. Great price, great look and great product!

Installation is nearly as easy as screwing in a light bulb. Remove the bulb and trim, screw a grounding wire to the can, screw in the adapter, and push the fixture into place. I fiddled with the first and really don't have a great place to screw in the ground in my old Juno cans. When placing the new fixture, you need to carefully squeeze and place the spring holders. After the first one, the others took five minutes each to install. I like this particular fixture because it's only 9.4 watts, yet it is extremely bright. The fixed lens is at a depth which I prefer. Some fixtures seem more recessed and I thought they might appear dimmer. A while ago, I was able to compare the illumination as they were on display at HD. They seemed more evenly lit when staring into the illumination area than some others. They are plasticy-looking, but in this price range, they all are. Have had some for six months and just bought more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joey There are two versions of this Retrofit Kit (for 6-inch housing).
These Halo retrofit kits come in 2 variations. People who complain about the specs didn't read carefully.
1. The 6-in diamater (only) retrofit has an 8-inch ring. The specs show it correctly. This is only sold online but you can then pick it up from your local store or delivered to your home.
2. The 5-in or 6-in diameter (it fits both) retrofit has a smaller 7.25 inch ring. The specs show it correctly. This is sold online or your local store. This is the only version that is sold in store for 6-in diameter. The version above is online only.
So if you want the bigger ring (8-inches) rather than the 7.25 inches --> you need to buy it online.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hawk Be Careful of the Model
I've installed a few of these however, when I went to get more, I found three different types on the shelf with the same box, same model number. I called Cooper Industries and the latest model is the one where you have a lead wire from the socket and a lead wire from the light itself. The one shown on the Home Depot site is an older model. I also found a really old model on the shelf that has a heat sink (looks like a lawnmower flywheel). Bad part is I couldn't find anymore of the latest model.
Cooper Industries does have the latest model shown on their site.
Otherwise these work good. One was dead out of the box and I returned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankR Easy to install
Once I got over the uncertainty of replacing an LED unit that lasted for about 5 years, this one was a snap to install. The Home Depot web site was easy to use, had same day pickup, and their prices were much better for this item than other stores' on the shelf units available for sale.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen I love the light in my shower. It makes such a difference.
I was tired of showering in the dark. When I remodeled my bathroom, I made sure that I put a light in the shower. This Recessed Retrofit Baffle made it possible.
