Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ty13 Very bright but hum on dimmer
I installed 3 of these above our sink in a bathroom renovation. They worked fine on a regular switch but were so bright that I put a Lutron Maestro dimmer (150w C.L) on. However they buzzed pretty loud at any dim setting. I returned it and picked up a Lutron Diva (150w C.L) which had similar Lithonia LEDs listed on the compatibility list and vice versa. However it STILL buzzes. It's a bit quieter so we're going to try to tolerate it but it's very frustrating that it looks so great yet buzzes. So anyone that claims they have a dimmer on these lights with no buzzing, please list the exact make and model for the rest of us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by antad I think these are a really good value.
I installed 5 of these in my kitchen about a year and a half ago and have not had one problem. They have worked flawlessly! I am an electrician and you can experience noise and flickering if you do not install a led rated dimmer. I installed a led rated dimmer and they dim just fine with no noise or flickering. I recently picked up another 8 of them, and they too are working fine. The only issue I had on one of them was one of the locking clip that holds the fixture to the ceiling wasn't locking. I bent it a little to make it lock and it was fine. If you install these make sure you have a led dimmer. good luck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rouwerk Very bright and economic. Great style
This is an affordable spot light with great contemporary styling. The LED has a great color and brightness and consumes next to nothing. We use it with a CL-LED compatible Lutron dimmer switch.

I really like the look of the installed lights... I purchased 8 of these for my large master bath. I wanted to have a light that could withstand a damp atmosphere—there is one in the shower and one over the soaker tub. These work well for that. They are bright, which I like. One disappointment was that the first lights were not well secured \. This may have been an installation issue... I had to fire my first contractor due to poor work during my bathroom renovation. One of the lights fell out and had to be replaced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benjamin Great lights, very tricky install...
I have only had these LEDs in for a week now. So far, they are running very well. I ran in to some complications not because of the lights, but because electrical wiring is very sensitive. Too many splices and the lights would not power. Once all of the wiring was cleaned up, they powered very well.
I tried a couple different switches and they all worked well.
MIR-600THW-WH worked fine and brought the LEDs to a pretty low level. CTCL-153PDH-WH worked well too. Currently I am using a Lutron dimmer that works with a Savant system. I don't know the model off hand.
It seems the issue a lot of people have with the dimmers is the wiring and the load. If you only have one or two LEDs installed, you will need to stick with the CTCL-153PDH-WH dimmer switch. The ones that have LEDs and lights on them require at least 40W of load to operate properly.
Keep in mind that these are LEDs so you're not going to get as low of a dim as you would with an incandescent bulb. But when properly installed, these look very modern and clean. My home is a restored spanish home and they look great!

Bought 5 of these lights to install over my kitchen island/ peninsula. They were easy to install and looked great... when they were off. When I turned on the lights, 4 out of 5 of them would dim slightly about every 10 or 15 seconds and then re-brighten again creating this flickering candle effect... not what I was looking for. Had to rip them out and return them which was very frustrating. For the price I would expect a lot better then 20% of them to work. These 4 inch IC rated LED can lights are hard to find, but I was able to track down another brand elsewhere that works great. Won't be buying any Lithonia products again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gsr4jimmi Not recommended for the price and the humming noise they emit!
These guys emit a buzzing/humming sound even with LED specific dimmers, same ones installed throughout the house with other dimmable LEDs and those don't buzz. Installed a pair in the remodeled bathroom above each vanity, couldn't find 5,000K so settled for 3,000K, not as nice as my 5,000K LED that I have throughout the house. Luckily there was also a big hanging pendant light fixture installed (with two 5,000K LED bulbs) in the middle of the bathroom that we use 99% of the time instead of these. These are priced too expensive. They were installed professionally so can't say how installation went.
