Rated 5 out of 5Â by kolobok Great replacement for buzzing florescent lights in my kitchen
I set up two of these to replace a 4 x 60w fluorescent fixture in my kitchen. They always buzzed, needed starters replaced, and caught dirt inside.
I am in a condo and recessed lights are not an option (there is some space but have a very nozy and intrusive HOA).
These PIXI lights appear to be recessed, put out a ton of light (I am going to add a dimmer) and look great in kitchen. Yes, the light is warm color, but that is what is advertised, so no complaints. I like it better than the office type lighting I had before. I think I will add the 1x1's in the hallway to replace globes that hang down.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kpixi Installs easily and looks great
The Pixi was easy to install and looks great.
In my installation there is a slight gap between light and the ceiling proper. Some light leaks from the back of the Pixi and shows in this gap. This may be due to my kitchen's popcorn ceiling. You might want to clear the ceiling area where the Pixi will go to make a tighter fit. Otherwise no complaints -- at least until I see if it really lasts 50,000 hours. :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Henry Very thin, looks like a sky light.
We are very pleased with this product, which we mounted on a set of pull down attic stairs in my laundry room. It looks like a sky light. Unlike some LED lights, there is no delay when it turns on. Plenty of light. Would prefer something at 3000K, but this is fine. I ordered a second one last night and am considering using 1' x 1' versions in closets too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jonathan Some tips on installation..
I bought 2 pixi lights, 1'x2' and 2'x2' (square). I installed the first large light first and it took me about four hours. Yes four hours of struggling to get the darn light onto the bracket. Let's just say my shoulders got extremely buff.
I read buried in one of the comments that it was best to understand that your CEILINGS are probably NOT completely flat.
Knowing that, I backed off the screws for the mounting plate 1/2-3/4 turn, which allowed the plate to stay mated to the ceiling (though not torqued down, which is unnecessary anyway). It allowed any flex from the ceiling to be negated, and what do you know, the light went on in a matter of seconds.
My 2nd pixi light installation therefore only took 15 minutes (from unpacking to flipping the switch).
So, installer beware?
And yes, the light is very very warm. I would also prefer to have something in the 3500~ range... the light it gives off is very orange/yellow.
