Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eeeee excellent and run cool
Got these at major savings to others at Home Depot as part of a daily deal on their email list.
They run cool as in not hot in temperature. There are others LED kits that create a lot more heat so longevity might be reduced with the extra heat for the power supply.
These TCP units run cool so heat should not be a factor in the power supply electronics failing due to heat.
The light is warm white and pleasant. It is produced by 12 LEDs surface mounted on a tiny white printed circuit below the plastic diffuser plastic lens. I uploaded a photo of the LEDs.
This is a good deal. Two TCP brand conversion kits are in each box. Four boxes (8 kits) to a case.

This product was easy to install. The instant on feature versus CFL's is great and the light output is good as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lindsayspop Great product at a great price.
I bought a boatload of these LED retrofit can lights for the house after the trim rings on the old ones turned yellow and the bulbs kept burning out. I like the way the manufacturer has made the trim in such a way as to create a shadow line that mimics the look of a standard flood. That makes it easy to replace specific fixtures without doing the whole house at once. Really easy to install, too.

You cannot beat the quality of this product for the price offered. I installed these lights on a dimmer switch and they work perfectly. Almost every light in my new house is one of these. Nothing but glowing discs of light at any level.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brchrdt WOW!
I'm an electrician and I bought 20 of these 2-packs when they were on sale for my own home. I replaced twelve CFL recessed lights (65w equivalent) in my kitchen with these LED retrofits. You don't have to be an electrician - it is so easy even a caveman could do it. Just make sure the power is off and you're good to go. I turned the lights on and I said WOW! I looked at my wife and she said WOW! These LEDs put out at least 25% more light than the CFLs did. It took the CFLs about a minute to warm up to their full output. These LEDs are instant. The color is GREAT. I thought 2700K might be a bit too warm but these seem to be closer to about 3000K, which is a great color for home lighting. They use half the energy of the CFLs and 80% less than the incandescent lights I replaced elsewhere in my home and you can use them with a dimmer. These retrofits are made for both 5 inch or 6 inch recessed housings. You may have to tap on the trims a little to get them tight to the ceiling with 6 inch housings because the spring clips are a little closer together so they will also work with the 5 inch housing, but most of my housings are 6 inch Halo or Commercial Electric and they fit fine. I could not use them on two older 6 inch housings that were of a different make. The brackets in those housings for the spring clips were too far apart and the retrofit trim would not completely cover the opening in the ceiling. These retrofit LEDs are aslo rated for damp locations. Even on sale they were a bit pricey but will definitely pay for themselves in energy savings. It's too early to tell if they will last the rated 35,000 hrs, but If they last half that long they are a bargain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by idontneedanickname Very Easy
They were much easier to put in than I expected. The light is instant and bright. They look better than my br30 bulbs. The material is a bit cheap, the plastic is bendable to a point where it feels cheap. But for the number of lights i had to change I'll sacrifice that. I dont have a dimmer so I cant say anything on that. Other than these things, I am pleased. Mine were installed in hallways on zwave 3-way switches.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Great value, good quality, just ok torsion springs
I got 5 sets of these (10 total) when they were on the daily deal sale. Takes about 3 minutes to install. Light is very warm, just like our incandescent bulbs. I have it hooked up to a Lutron dimmer and it works great. Compared to other retrofits, these are not too deep. It doesn't matter to me but I thought I'd just bring that up.
My only issue with these is that the torsion springs don't seem to work as well as the ones found on the Ecosmart Cree retrofits. The Ecosmart has a much better design and it seems like they would stay in the cans much longer. With these TCPs, I bet with just a tiny earthquake here in Cali, these would probably fall out of place by a little. There were times when I had to keep pushing them towards the ceiling just so they would stay and find the right spot. I just feel that the design of the torsion springs just don't seem to be the best out there. I never had that problem with the Ecosmarts but then again, they're twice the price.
For the price, they're a great value. Hope this helps.
