Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dishie These Lights Buzz
These light buzz. I installed 4 of these lights on an Hampton Bay track (2 4' tracks tied together) that I all purchased separately. I noticed the buzzing, not from the switch or the wiring, but from the individual lights themselves - all 4 of them. I tried swapping out the switch twice... for both a LV, magnetic switch AND the CL switch which says its for LED & halogen lights. Still, the lights buzzed. So i purchased the other brand of LED, dimmable track fixture Home Depot had for sale - MAXUM or something - and hey presto!, no buzzing.
I am only glad HD took the HB fixtures back & gave me a full refund.

I loved the low profile of these lights and the fact that they are LED. But, they buzz. I don't want to hear that all the time, so back to the store they go.

If you need MORE THAN 1 OF THESE, buy the kit instead. you pay less per head than buying three by themselves, and the kit includes track AND a power module as well.
Don't get me wrong, I love the light from these track heads. However, I installed a LUTRON DIVA dimmer, and there was a distinct buzz. Not so loud that a window unit air conditioner wouldn't drown it out - but loud enough that I said "forget the dimmer, these get a regular switch".
I own about 12 sets of these, none are on dimmers because of the noise. I even thought "hey, those magnetic dimmers might cut the buzz". I was wrong, and had to return a special order LUTRON DIVA MAGNETIC DIMMER. Annoying, but still great light. These do not buzz if connected to a standard light switch.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rich LED to Replace Incandescent
Bought 5 LED bulbs to replace 5 incandescent bulbs -- from 375 watts to 35 watts. This is a kitchen, so lights are on 6 -7 hours per day. LED is brighter so kitchen looks cleaner and re-lacquered white cabinets are highlighted. Nice upgrade for $175 even if LED is pricey. Do not expect to change bulbs for a least 7 years or more.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by H123 All is good, but pricey!
Worked 1st time out of the box, no assembly required and compatible with my Leviton dimmer. Appears light bulbs are not replaceable. Important: Can not combine standard 120v cans with low voltage (50v) track lights, need 120v all the way with LED/CFL dimmers.
