Rated 4 out of 5Â by DMDM Good retrofit choice, slight buzzing with MLV dimmer
I like these lights. They seem to be the only retrofit available right now that is an eyeball design and casts a wide-angle dispersed light. They also have very good dimming properties (very low light levels achievable). I wanted the wide angle and directable light beams to cut down on glare in the family room. Works great for that. Unfortunately, there is a slight buzzing noise, which varies from fixture to fixture. This is probably due (in my case) to using an MLV dimmer switch. I gather. I was going to install an ELV dimmer switch, but I have no neutral in the area where I want the dimmer. So I can't be sure an ELV dimmer would fix the issue. I can say I tried an MLV switch from both Lutron and Cooper (who makes the lights), and they both give a slight buzz. Regardless, I'm keeping the lights. The buzz is fairly minimal, even with the low ceilings we have. TV is usually on when we are in that room...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by britpunks Very nice LED recessed lights.
The lights are beautiful and look great installed, however, of the 20 that I bought - 2 had clips that broke off and needed to be fixed with some wire and tape to install. Otherwise, the lights are recommended, but the fastener connection to the light case needs an improved design. Also, don't even think of installing these on a 6" opening - way to small and a seem will appear. These are only good for 5" can openings.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PeterH9 Puts light where you want it
This ceiling light puts light where we want it, across the room onto a wine cabinet in a dark corner. It was challenging to install, with no real directions, and I still don't have it flush with the ceiling. The clips that hold it in will not go into the existing light straightforward.

I had been looking for replacements for original ceiling flood lights. I didn't want to remove all of the old wiring and can. This seemed like a good solution. When I removed the old light bulb from the fixture, I realized I would have to raise the interior bracket to fit the new light and wires. No problem. (I have read other reviews where the light hangs loose so you might want to check this before you install) However, this particular light does have a separate ground wire. I have not encountered this with other manufacturers for two other LED lights I have installed. Unusual but I was able to secure it to the frame. The light fit in snug. The illumination is bright but not overwhelming. The gimbals are a bit stiff but hold their position. I would still recommend this product if you are looking for a conversion of an older light fixture.
