Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy Fantastic Low Profile Lighting!
I had 12 of these lights installed in my living room, dinning and hallway going towards the back of the house. DO NOT buy the Lutron $7.99 dimmer because they will not DIM these lights like they are capable of. Buy the Lutron Model # S-600PH-WH, this dimmer switch has a separate rocker and dimmer so you can fully dim to 100% to about 10%. They are low profile and great. On a downside, since they're only 8 watts, they do dim down for sec. when my AC kicks on due to the large amount of amperage pulled from the power panel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Buzz on dimmer
They are clean looking and give off a nice bright light, but I noticed they buzz/hum slightly when on a normal switch and noticeably so on a dimmer switch. I tried a Lithonia recommended lutron diva dimmer switch and it was really bad. I returned it for a new CL Diva dimmer from Lutron (led specific) instead and it was less noisy but the hum is still there. It would be perfect were it not for that. It is also worth mentioning 1 of the 4 I bought had the neutral wire come out of the orange connector.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roof UGH! Discontinued the other model
Unfortunately, my first review on the 3", was for the other model, which was discontinued. Ordered 2 of this model, which does NOT match my other 3".
Disappointed the other model was discontinued, I really liked the lens on the other model vs. the look of this lens.
If you already had some of the previous model installed, good luck on finding a match.
No biggie, but this 3" uses a wattage higher than the other discontinued 3".
All in all, a good buy, but it looks "cheaper" made with this lens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeLikesIt Very Nice LED for a remodel home project
It's hard to find a 3" LED recessed lighting kit. This fit the bill! I like the look of when it was installed. Didn't look like a can light. I put out more light than I expected for LED. The only draw back it when you turn the light on there is a 1 1/2 second delay coming on. It doesn't bother me, it may be a problem for some. I am planning to use them again when I do the other two bathrooms.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Don't buy these if you want to dim them!
The product looks nice but they don't work very well with dimmers. I used one of the recommended dimmers which are listed in the box and on their website. The lights pops on at a high intensity and clamps down. I would say the range of the dimming capability is 30% to 90%.
Contacted customer service at Lithonia only to get the run around. Avoid these lights if you want dimming capabilty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SagittariusBob Great Choice for Me
I have been wanting to remove popcorn from the kitchen ceiling for about 7 years now. I finally decided to do it and installed 4 of these lights to replace the single one in the middle of the ceiling which I removed then patched the hole.
Installation was very easy. I cut holes using the template provided, with a standard hand drywall saw.
I rerouted the wiring that powered the old light to the closest of the new light fixtures. I had no trouble fitting the source and supply to additional lights, into the work box provided with the lights.
Best of all the wife is very pleased with the results and so am I.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roof Nice product!
Bought 5 of these, used in conjunction with 14- 5". Dining room has 4-5" & 2-3", on separate dimmers than the 5". Puts out a lot of light for a small light, and there's virtually no heat unlike other recessed lighting.
We put 5-5" in the kitchen & 3-3", on separate dimmers. Absolutely perfect!
Don't know why the 5" shows it's discontinued, but is listed elsewhere on HD's page. Do believe someone made a mistake when designing their page. Would recommend Lithonia products to anyone.
Everyone who sees them, loves them.
HD does a great job with shipping & value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scooterthecat96 Works great with Smarthome dimmer
I replaced my 6 inch recessed lighting in basement suspended ceiling with these. They install nicely in the ceiling tile, unlike another brand that I used in the basement hallway. White light is more like daylight than most incandescent bulbs. It dims great with Smarthome's smartlink dimmers so I still have same full control as before. The lights are not as recessed as previous fixture, so there is a bit of glare that will take some getting use to. My wife likes the LED brightness and color so much, she wants to replace all the fixtures in the house with these. I have purchased 11 so far, 6 installed already. I have some more work cut out for me.
