Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terrie good instructions and simple installation, beautiful lighting
I was disappointed the store didn't have a replacement LED for a 7 in can, but very pleased to find the website did. The kit was easy to install, contained additional brackets to supplement the spring loaded grips which came in handy. Light fixture looks great and the lighting provided is beautiful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby Good bright light but limited dimmer options
Lights are very bright and easy to install. These were the only ones that would fit our old recess cans and cover the openings correctly. The light is 3000K so is very white compared to incandescent. I didn't like this at first, but do now. The number of 'supported' dimmers is small compared to other LEDs. Our old Maestro would not turn them off completely and we even had issues using the Diva LED dimmer from the approved list. The lights would stutter when switched on and seemed to strobe while dimming. This didn't bother anyone in the house but me. However, I installed a standard rotary dimmer I had lying around and this works fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by danwanic 2 lights out of 14 went bad in less than 2 months
I bought 14 of these lights for 2 rooms arond 2 months ago. One of the rooms has 8 lights with each 4 controlled by Lutron Diva Skylark Contour. The other room has different brand dimmers. Two of the lights in the room with Lutron Dimmers starts with full light and then dim down by themselves after 1 min. I removed of the lights and and power it directly (without a dimmer), and it behaved similarly. i.e starts with full bright light and in less than 1 min it dims.
I mentioned the dimmer used since turning on the Lutron dimmer makes the light flicker before they they turn on.
The sale person at Home Depot told me that the dimmers are compatible with these lights. Not sure if the dimmer has something to do with ruining the lights, or the lights are not good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HenryPE Good buy
I was thinking about LED can lights but only found them at Lowes for around $70. I thought it was not justified. Was at HD and saw this at half that price. Bought one and installed it 9wasnt careful and broke a small part of the internal assembly, not any connections or safety part. It is nice. Lit up immediately. Now the can light is not open to ceiling space. No chance of dust or bug coming through or leaking cool/warm air. Now ready to save money by spending first and get more replaced. :-) Thank you, Home Depot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickH A non-glarrey led
Unit has metal housing vs. plastic in many others. 3000K color temperature (same as halogen) is OK and has modern look. I would have preferred 2700K, but Lithonia does not offer it in this line and the available 2700K fixtures had other issues that made them unsuitable for my application. Springs are good (allow use with a square can) and hold fixture tight against the ceiling. Best feature is that the recessed "lamp" minimizes glare that is a problem with a number of recessed led fixtures.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GardenBuilder Excellent LED light with 1 flaw
I bought three of these LED lights. They're made very well. They're super easy to install. I did find one major problem. With one of my lights, I connected it to a dimmer switch. The light would not turn off 100% even when the switch was switched off. This dimmer switch was one of the listed compatible switches listed on the manufactures instruction guide. I went back to Home Depot and returned the dimmer switch with a different dimmer switch that is meant for CL/LED lights. That dimmer switch worked even worse. It would not turn off the light 100% either when switched off and would not brighten the light 100% when the dimmer was set to max. I would highly recommend these lights to anyone. However if you plan one using these with a dimmer...forget about it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danny Best led recessed light out there, all aspects
After installing 55 of them in one shot here are my notes. First the housing is made of all metal, no cheap plastic. It's designed to last without any question. Next this is one of the more energy efficient LEDs out there, as in more lumens per watt. The light output and style blend very easily to any white ceiling. Last the PRICE is one of best, they now sell a two pack, saving us more money, I think we all like saving money. If your going to do anything recessed, this LED is the way to go. Trust me :-)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Texan Great, if they lasted
These lights are wonderful if you happen to get some that last. I bought ten of these in April of 2013. Two months later one of them burned out. Five more months go by and another burns out. That's a 20% failure rate in seven months. And these are supposed to last 22 years?
Failure rate aside, they produce a nice white light instantly when the switch is flipped, with no noise, and only use 8.6 watts. They flicker when something power hungry is turned on (like a vacuum cleaner), but that only lasts a second. They are very easy to install using the included bulb adapter and metal clips to stay inside the recessed light can and physically look very nice.
Of the two that failed, one was on a dimmer and one wasn't. The dimmer is on the approved list, but I'd say it's operation is 3 out of 5 stars. It dims them a little bit, but after about 50% they do not dim anymore... they stay at about 50%. It works out fine as 50% isn't much light, but it's definitely not smooth from 0 to 100% like one would hope for.
