Some lights are very wide angle, like 40 degrees, and some are narrow, like 20 -25 degrees. I am planning to install 3 lights over a countertop 4 feet from the light.

Answer: 
The unit I recently purchased for evaluation has an extremely wide field angle, on the order of 100˚. It is most definitely NOT 30˚.

Answer: 
It's a flood, so about 35-40 degrees. The hot spot on your counter would be about 36" diameter.

White gimbal trim utilizes an MR16 GU10 LED lamp projecting 30-degree beam spread for
smooth distribution with 35° tilt adjustment. Thanks for your question!

Answer: 
Howdy Alan,
This lighting kit is not rated as a moisture-proof enclosure. When using any electricity in moist atmosphere it is important for safety to have the correct lighting.
There is also local building codes that must be researched before just in case there are electrical codes to be met.
A licensed electrician is a wise decision in this case.
Happy Lighting,
Coach Dave

LED "bulb" (which is really just a diode on a board) is built in... it doesn't take a bulb.

Answer: 
I decided to buy the recessed fixture and let fate decide if I could install it in old construction. The answer is: a resounding YES! So, I'm happy and you don't have to spend any of your time on me. By the way, it is bright! It took twenty minutes to install it. I replaced a surface fixture with this LED recessed fixture.

Answer: 
Yes you can. If code allows, I'd recommend using Romex in lieu of flexible armored cable, however. It is very difficult to fit the armor flex connections through the holes when you have to push the fixture once it's wired up into the ceiling hole. Make sure any insulation is kept clear a min of 3" clear of the fixture housing; this is not an IC rated housing.

I installed them throughout my house, except for the kitchen, where I had new construction LEDs. I'm now thinking of ripping out the new construction LEDs to put these in, the quality of light is unmatched.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not what I thought it would be. While this broad and fairly diffuse source would be good for some uses, it fails as an accent light. The presence of a gimbal implies a narrow beam of light that can be aimed. But the gimbal ends up not really doing much, since the light source is so diffuse, it can't really be aimed at objects. Basically, you have very little control of the beam with this particular lamp. This is a confusing issue to me, because I see a sales rep addressing this subject in the Q&A's here by saying the lamp has a 30˚ beam. I'd call it more like 60˚ to 100˚. This disparity makes me wonder if different lamps have been supplied over the years, which is fairly likely given the ever-evolving nature of LED lights. This lack of QC is annoying. One warning: You don't want to use these in a room with low ceilings, as the wide field angle means you'll have the bright light source in your field of vision, which could be very annoying. An accent light should have a reasonably sharp beam cutoff, which this does not. I'll give it credit for having fairly decent color rendering, a warm white temperature without the weird yellow and blue peaks that plague cheap LED lamps. I can't comment on the ease of installation since I returned it. The build quality seemed decent enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fixture As an architect, I used these in my home because they have they same look and functionality of fixtures used in high-end hospitality and retail projects. I could not be more pleased with the end result. My only complaint is that the wiring box, once wired with flexible conduit, is nearly impossible to fit through the 3-1/8" hole in a retrofit installation. I HIGHLY recommend using Romex if code allows, in which case the installation would be quite easy. Nonetheless, I managed to get these installed and they are absolutely beautiful fixtures. They are dimmable with a compatible C-L type dimmer switch, and they dim down to a very low level, nearly off. A room of 6 of these only uses 24W of power when turned up full blast! And perfect light color temperature!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice and easy I bought & installed these LEDs a good month ago. They were cheap, they swivel, they look simple, they're small, they give nice light - I put seven of them on a dimmer: beautiful. They're easy to install in an existing ceiling (I never had done it before, took me half a day to cut, patch, install, another half a day to finish electrical), and they look very nice. Each light uses 3 Watt when at 100%, so together they use less than 1 bedside light. Yeah, these are nice lights. Highly recommended, very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lights I put 10 of these in my living room and I could not be happier. They are bright for 3" lights and the dimming is great, goes to about 10% flawlessly. I paired these with Lutron dimmers, be sure to get the correct CFL rated ones. Liked these so much I'm buying 10 more to do the bedrooms. The light bulbs are removable to be replaced or swapped for halogen if LED wasn't to your liking. The only complaint I have is that the clips on them could be stronger because if you try to remove the housing without going slowly and pop a clip you will need to solder it back on or buy a new one. Aside from that minor detail and reason for the 4 stars, they are well made and look fantastic.
