Rated 5 out of 5 by Halo is the best brand out there I am a licensed electrician and I can guarantee that when we install recessed lights into a home, whether 100 or 5, we will install Halo lights. I can also guarantee that when you're installing recessed lights into a remodel you CANNOT bet on a 10 min installation. There are so many factors such as where are the rafters? How THICK is the drywall? Is it plaster with lath? These Halo lights are the easiest to install but they're designed for 1/2" drywall. If you have something other than that (which you may not know until you start cutting) you WILL have to bend clips. So just bend the clips... I've installed more recessed lights then I care to admit and it is NOT a fun job. So if you're not willing to put a little effort (and probably aggravation) into it, just hire it done. June 27, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Missing parts Two of the four retainer clips were mising. I needed to return it to a local store in exchange for a complete product. I would recommend the purchase of this in the store only. October 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Getting better I wanted cans that were as close to airtight as possible. These come close but not quite. The spring clamps that you press out to hold the ceiling have the foam sealing strip on the inside of the cam instead of where the spring clamp covers the slot in the can. I fixed this by caulking around all of the spring clamps from top to bottom after installation. October 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by just what i needed the product was easy to install. served its purpose. October 22, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible retainer clips Unfortunately i didn't read the prior reviews regarding the "bend the clip and/or housing" trick so install was much more difficult than I expected. After unsuccessfully trying to push the clips out and up by hand I ended up giving them a little, (or maybe on some a big) tap with a hammer to get them to slide out and into place. Generally speaking I wouldn't recommend this approach. Multiple soft perfectly placed taps with the hammer were eventually effective at getting the clips to flip out completely enabling the upward push to lock them in place but this was rare. Heavier and less perfectly placed blows were more successful at severely bending and/or perforating the aluminum housing which made perfectly flush installation pretty much impossible. Yes, I should have been more gentle but come on just make the slot the correct size and clip angle properly in the first place. September 9, 2014
