I have installed 22 of these lights over the past 8 months in my current home The best feature is the quick push connect for wiring. I have read complaints about the mounting tabs being very difficult to fully engage when securing the light. The angle of the black tabs usually needs to be bent open slightly more in order to be able to position the tab fully when mounting. This wasn't a problem on the last 2 lights I bought so maybe they are preset in a better angle now.

I Used a Bottle Jack on Top of a Ladder
I just finished installing 32 of these cans. I read the reviews regarding difficulties installing into 5/8 drywall. I tried pushing the light into the hole (I drilled my holes using the drill attached saw at Home Depot) but was not strong enough. So I got a small bottle jack, a flat piece of wood, and jacked the lights into the whole. It worked great! I loved the electrical box set-up. The connectors worked great (you don't need any wire nuts) and the built-in romex clamps made installation very quick.

Very Good Value - Installation Tip
The price of these lights is very good and installation went very smoothly. I am using them with 100 watt (equivalent), BR-40 LED bulbs. A lot of the reviews indicate that people have a problem installing the clips. I tried the method provided in the instructions and could not get the clips to lock into place. My solutions was to hold the clip against the can and insert an awl through the round hole in the clip and round hole in the can and push the end of the clip out at a slight upward angle. The clips pop right into place. Bought the box of six lights in the store. Made sure that the box was factory sealed before purchase. No damage, no missing parts and no problems.

    These Can Work Well, Really!
    I recommend this product only because the options are few and with some extra care, you can get the mounting clips to work with a simple step before use plus I like not needing to use wire nuts. By now everyone who has bought these has had the dreaded clip failure. The only thing worse than the clips are the instructions on how to successfully use the clips that secure the whole assembly onto your ceiling sheet-rock. The outer housing is very soft aluminum sheet. Often, following instructions will deform the housing in a way that will make the retainer clips useless. If the housing bends outward, you’re sunk. TIP: Before installing each unit, use a straight head screw driver to bend the slot in the aluminum sheet above the clip INWARD so that the peak of the clip can more easily make it to the outside of the can when doing the final install. You can do this with the clip in place or you can easily remove the clip and replace it after making the bend (see pics). That is how they are supposed to work and the clip will then lock against the can with the provided screwdriver notch. Note that the screwdriver notch is hidden under a peace of foam tape that must be there to conform to insulation contact requirements. Pic number 4 shows the notch with the foam tape pulled back. Just use a screwdriver in the notch to push the clip all the way up and if the peak of the clip is outside the can, it should work fine.

    These can lights are by far more sturdy when inserting to your née cut out and the metal prongs to hold your can to the drywall have a smooth push in to make the connections easy. As for as the Electricial cables. Those re push connect that make your install supper fast.
