I just bought two of these for replacing a damaged trim/lense set that was on the downlights over my bathtub and shower.
Like most of the modern LED solutions these days, they were largely simple and painless to install. The Edison base adapter screwed into the socket and then the light plugged into the adapter and the spring clips were just like the trim plates would've had, just clip them to the hooks in the can and push the whole fixture into place.
End result was actually beyond merely impressive.
People just don't realize just how much light they lose out of a downlight can unless it's polished or you're using a reflector flood (NOT reccomended for this particular application, by the way...)- the light from a true 75 watt bulb in the can with the lens and trim doesn't compare to the results these retrofit kits give. (This is WHY some complain about the things being "too bright". They don't realize that they're dropping about "20-40 watts" of light on the floor with the downlight design.)
If you're replacing anything other than reflector floods with these, you'll probably find the same thing I did. I'll be pulling the 75 watt LEDs in the other locations and replacing them with these shortly- and moving the LEDs elsewhere since they're still good. If you're replacing 60w reflector floods, you'll get the same basic results with these with less heat and power consumption.

Installed 4 lights about 2 weeks ago as replacement for 2 fluorescent tubes. Much brighter and whiter light. Installed dimmer since light was too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rashid warranty issue
I bought 10 of these lights in Feb.2012, everything was ok but since 3-4 days one light is flickering and some time turns off & on itself. I checked thoroughly and reached the conclusion that my this light has been broken. Home depot gives only 3 months warranty and there is no infomation about the manufacturer warranty, now what should I do?
This is the bad side of these lights so before purchasing these lights must keep this thing in mind that what would you do if the light breaks after the 3 months warranty period.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ChrisK Great Color and Output of Light
Excellent product. Easy to install, just like screwing in a regular bulb. I was hesitant to use LED lighting due to the blue-ish color they usually give off, but this light looks fantastic. You cannot really tell it is a LED, the frosted lens evenly distributes light. Plus you do not have to purchase a baffle, its all in one. Purchased 4 for a bedroom, and am back to buy 6 more! They work great with dimmers as well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by puplover Excellent Value at the in-store price!
I just installed six of these, definitely brighter than what they replaced (CFL & incandescent), so the dimmer is 'maxed out' on low and still the room is brighter. I used a $20 Lutron dimmer that notes LEDs on the pack, since my old dimmer was shot.
The Commercial LED trim ring ceiling gasket (silicone rubber) is a great feature, since all the cold air rushing past into the cans and out to the attic suddenly just stops! Some brands Sylvania & one Halo model I examined) have no soft gasket, and much of the value is in that feature, said our professional home energy auditor.
I intend to use another six in a kitchen, and total install time is under 5 minutes per fixture including pulling old trim rings off, truly an easy product to use.
