Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoriTheAuthor Gives Off the Perfect Amount of Light
I installed one of these in my master shower and it looks and works great! Looks very elegant, gives off a good amount of light, was average to install (no more difficult than any other recessed light.) I do have it on a dimmer and it works great. I wanted it to be oil rubbed bronze instead of white, so I spray painted the exterior ring with an exterior spray paint ad it looks perfect. You'd never know it didn't come that way. The bulb has been in there more than 2 years without needing to be changed. Very pleased with this light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dewey Piece of junk
I just purchased this in the store and installed it. The directions do not tell you anything worth knowing and the diagrams do not match the fixture. The diagrams indicate heavier clips to hold the bulb and lens portion in place, but instead there are long wire springs that grip to nothing. The bulb and lens keep sliding out. I am going to have to make something to hold it in place. I would return it but the ceiling is already cut to fit, and the base is in place. The only positive thing that I can say is that it is bright.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Total Junk - Clips Broke, No Seal, Bulb Doesn't Fit, Flimsy Remodel Kit
This thing is an absolute piece of junk. I usually buy from a lighting store, but decided to work on a budget for this project. Used the conversation kit for new construction - the hangers are flimsy, light gauge, and wobble like crazy when you touch the light.
The whole casing bent when trying to remove the knockout for the clamp. The clip just snapped off when opening the electrical box (used zip ties to hold shut).
Worst, once the whole thing was installed, the stupid light didn't fit. Looking for a solution to this since I don't want to reinstall a new light.
I don't understand how this is shower rated either - there is no gasket or anything between the trim and the housing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TurntableBefuddled It snapped right in, works like a charm
My shower, which had been a bit dark and gloomy, is nice and bright now. This light was simple to install. I ran some romex from my main bathroom light to this unit and hooked it right up. Now, when I turn on the switch, they come on together. In fact, the shower unit helps illuminate the bathroom itself, not just the shower area. The last time I installed a can light in a shower, I bought the can and the shower-glass insert separately, which meant I had to make sure they matched. With this product, they're pre-matched for you - you can't go wrong. Everything was in the box, even the wire nuts and the bulb. The only thing I had to add was wire (romex) and the clamp that holds the wire to the knockout hole in the box. Want a light in your shower? This is the way to get it. Oh, and by the way, when you match the components yourself, you're going to pay more. This thing is a good buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Piebird Inexpensive & effective
I chose the 5 inch shower light based upon its price and simple design. I received the two lights I ordered within 5 days of placing my order on a Saturday morning. I had the lights installed by an electrician so as not to void our homebuilder's warranty. It took one electrician almost 2 hours to install the lights with about 30 minutes of help from a second electrician. These 5 inch lights have really brightened up the two bathrooms they're installed in. I'm pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone looking for a shower light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by crankyman2 This is NOT IC rated
This is a good looking fixture, but it is NOT IC-rated. The internet specs say it is but the box clearly say "NON-IC REMODEL HOUSING" in big-bold-letters. So maybe HD needs to hire some IT people who know what IC is!!!
Other than that, I would recommend this product for its proper use.

Very good value and easy to install for the DIYer. And, much better than the old one it replaced.
