Rated 4 out of 5Â by jboeke Easy Install, Very Bright
Very happy with the light output of this LED. It exceeded my expectation and really 'outshines' other types of traditional bulb. The installation was also easy. Of course, this unit was more expensive that traditional recessed lighting solutions. I'm hoping the payoff will be in a very long bulb life (estimated at 30k hours). I only have two complaints. (1) The light does not illuminate immediately. There is a half-second to second delay when flipping the switch to the illumination of the light. This is comparable to compact fluorescent lights, so it is not a huge problem. (2) There were some small flecks of material inside the light that are impossible to remove (see picture). The unit is factory sealed and there is no way to get these out. Be sure to inspect your unit closely before purchase to avoid them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sprout Better than expected. Well made.
I installed eight of these in the kitchen area they are a very well made light, quite easy to install and wire. Light is bright, may wish to consider a dimmer for light control. The spring clips operate easily and hold unit firmly to ceiling. I glued the cushion strips in prior to installation to avoid them moving around.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Andy Very nice looking when installed
I actually think these lights are pretty cool. They look great, produce ton of light without hardly any heat from them. They say they are soft white light but really lean toward whiter light. Easy to install once you have the wires run and holes cut for existing construction.
I used a recommended dimmer switch with mine and they dim nicely.
Only flaws are a slight hum from the lights when on, (and yes I used a dimmer switch that was listed on the box) but cant hear if there is any other noise in the room.
Also, would like a warmer soft light that matches more toward the standard incandescent lights give off.
Overall, very please!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Thomas Definitely an Upgrade!
I installed 3 lights and I wasn't sure if it would be enough to flood the area with light. The lights turned out better than expected. There are other people who mentioned the delay when the light turns on... Yes they do have a delay, but it is better than a CFL warming up and hearing a hum. Once it turns on, you have bright light immediately. The lights are that much better with a dimmer!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BloomResident Much brighter than I thought
I installed 4 in my living room (I originally was going to install 8) Wow they are bright. I installed dimmers and then had to replace the dimmers because the dimmers were not the CFL/LED type. The type dimmer is very important because the dimmer hummed then went poof. I found special order Lutron brand dimmers at THD that work great with these lights. There is a few second delay when turning the lights on, however the delay is not a problem. For my work they ordered 40 of these for the hallways in a commercial building because the light is very white and the power savings is fantastic. The junction box could be larger especially if you are using 12 GA wire.
