Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Landshark Easy to install right out of the box
With these recessed lighting fixtures, it was easy to adjust with-in the bracket to line up all the lights in 2 directions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GABBB Fairly easy to install. VERY easy to wire
If you are finishing a room, which we were doing, these recessed can lights are a great option. They are not as easy to install as I would like. They come with nails ready to go, but I found that I often could not get the nails in easily. I ended up using the optional screw holes to secure the lights. Of course, you have to do this one handed because one hand is holding up the light while the other is securing the feet to a joist.
If you are installing more than one and need them to line up, you have to be decent with math and be able to measure. These can shift back and forth on the legs in one direction, so you'll need to ensure that they are lined up in the OTHER direction before securing them.
By far, the easiest part is wiring them. You merely pop off the cover, and you are presented with the three leads: hot, neutral, and ground. You merely strip about 1/4" or so of wire and push the the wire in. You'll "feel" that it's secured. There is room for up to three connections, so you can run the line in from the power source and then feed two other fixtures from that point.
There are even grommets to allow the wires to safely enter the wiring box. That aspect is very well thought out and why I prefer these recessed lights to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OOJoe Excellent and easy to install.
My job was a remodel where the ceiling was removed. The junction box has plenty of room and 3 punch outs to accept wiring. the connections are all push in and accept three different feed wires also. Very easy to install and use. Worked great with the LED fixtures installed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo123 I like it
Whoever designed this definitely had ease of installation in mind. This a breeze to install. I just installed four of them and my wife wanted an additional one. "No problem!", I said. After 10 minutes, we had another one installed. The wire-nut-less installation is GREAT! Just strip the wire about 1/2" and shove it in the connector.
The only difficult part was clipping the sliding bars to make it fit in a space less than 16 inches. I had to pinch it with lineman's pliers and wiggle it quite a bit to get it to break.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don Easy to install
Easy to install with all hardware included. Just adjust to fit beams and nail into place. Sealed to Sheetrock and looked good. Electrical connections were easy with plug-in connectors. Great product. I am going to install 5 more units.

I installed 4 of these into existing sheet-rock and they worked great. Since I have access to my attic, I just planned the layout around joists, cut holes, placed cans in holes, and nailed in place. I did have to tin-snip some tin where you would nail from the bottom, but with existing sheet-rock just cut off the tabs. These cans have a lot of nice features for the price and worked great. I did have to caulk around the openings as the tin-work has some gaps, but not a big deal. Planned layout and installed 4 working cans in one day. Not a bad DIY project if you have the skills for the drill.
