Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mary Great buy!
I removed my ceiling fan in the living room and spent a few days on the fence about buying these lights or going with bigger 6in models. At the end I ended up buying 2 kits and we installed 6 lights. They look amazing!. Very elegant, modern, and the lighting is perfect in my living room. The lighting is a cool white but with enough warmth, not too yellow in my opinion. I'm thinking of buying 1 more kit to install another 6 in my dining area.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hawaii706 Good deal for LED lights and bulbs
We replaced a rectangular contract grade ceiling fixture in the kitchen with LED recessed lights. Bought 2 packs (8 lights) which might seem like a lot, but remember they have a small footprint and small wattage. Everything was included for the installation. Easy installation since we had an electrical contractor install. We installed 3 lights 15 inches apart over a counter top and this is just the right amount of overhead lighting for this area. In the center of the kitchen, installed 3. In hindsight, probably should have put 4 as these are 5 watt bulbs. Will probably upgrade to a higher wattage for this area. The other 2 bulbs were installed 15 inches apart at the other end. Again just the right amount of lighting for this space. Looks great. In the picture, the blue tape is covering up the holes from the old fixture. so the next project is repairing the ceiling. These are dimmer compatible, but we did not install a dimmer switch so can't provide a review of that capability. the kitchen seems a little larger without the ceiling fixture now.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DIYourselfer Not flicker-free dimmable
Purchased (2) of these 4-pack light fixtures. Installed (6) of these units with (3) units on (2) dimmer switches. At dimmable levels of 0-50 percent the lights flicked so much that it was distracting to the eye and totally unacceptable. Worked with the electrical associate at my local Home Depot. He had me test with a Philips 4W dimmable LED bulb - MR 16 Flood GU10 base (model 9290002120). The new bulb worked correctly and did not flicker at any dimmable level. The associate worked out a discount towards the purchase of the (8) new bulbs that I had to buy to replace the original faulty bulbs shipped with the fixtures.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by prestain Only 4" LED boxes I could find
I was looking for a recessed box that wouldn't stick above my rafter ties and was IC rated. I figured there would be lots of options since LED put off so little heat. Surprisingly these were the only ones I could find. Plus it has all the bells and whistles, dimmable, aimable, etc, etc. The lights were brighter than expected, I probably could have spaced them out a little more. My only complaint is that the light is a little cooler than i expected for 3000k but fine for lighting my hallway. Also be warned that even thought the description says it can be used for new installs I believe you need another addon for that option. I simply installed them like a retrofit light and they turned out great.

It was hard to find 3 or 4" full lighting kits in LED rated for insulated ceilings, but these are them. Very easy to order/shipping was free/ installation was a breeze. Remodel tension brackets hold lights nice and tight, just be sure to cut a good hole. The only thing I would recommend is I used 2 of my 4 lights to shine on the wall for artwork, I would advise looking for a light kit that has more of the eyeball shroud around the light so it direct ALL the light to the area on the wall you want it to go. These lights will do the job, but you will notice when you turn them toward a wall some light will get blocked by the outer housing. A little detail I didn't think about when purchasing. Also everyone is right when they say these are a little cooler lights colorwise. I have 2400K 6" LED in the same room and you notice the slight difference-think these are 3000K, but I still like them as they are more of the "mood" lighting for the room. Just wish they get cheaper!! I also like you can change the bulb if you needed to.
